How to make a DIY Easter egg wreath

Materials

Our adventure into the world of DIY Easter egg begins with gathering our materials, which you’ll likely find are already waiting for you in your craft supplies or are easily accessible from your local craft store:

Equipment

  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue gun and a lot of glue sticks (if using the mini ones)
  • Zip tie

Preparation

  1. Begin by laying out all of your materials and making sure you have everything you need.
  2. Plug in your hot glue gun so it can heat up while you start assembling the wreath.
  3. Set aside a clean work area with plenty of space to spread out your materials and create without any distractions.

Instructions

Cover the wreath

  1. Start by taking your grapevine wreath and wrapping the moss around it. I left a spot open on the top as I was adding a bow. To add the moss you need to do this in sections. Add hot glue to the grapevines and then place the moss on top, making sure that it adheres. Some will fall off when you lift it up but you can either hot glue it back in place or stuff it in between the grapevines. Have patience with this. If you notice that your hot glue is stringy like mine was, just make sure to take your time and remove the strings so it doesn’t get tangled with the moss.
  2. Once the wreath is pretty much covered, start adding your eggs with hot glue. I just randomly added them around the wreath. I tried not to get the same color next to each other.

Make the ribbon

  1. Next I made a bow using the burlap ribbon. Make sure your ribbon is wired, it is much easier to work with. I made a few loops and secured them together with a zip tie.
  2. I then cut another piece of the burlap ribbon to make the tails and to use to wrap over the zip tie to cover it.
  3. Add a dab of hot glue on the center of the bow to secure the burlap ribbon. Cut the tails to your desired length.

Add the final pieces

  1. To add the Easter egg sign, remove the piece of jute on the top (don’t throw it away, you will reuse this. I pushed the bottom section of the sign into some of the grapevines and it held it, I added some hot glue to secure it.
  2. Take the jute piece and pull it through one of the holes on the sign and then through a piece of the grapevine and then back through the other hole. Add hot glue to where the sign meets the wreath to secure it in place.

Experiment with different bow styles, colors, and materials to make your wreath truly unique. You can also add additional embellishments like flowers or even a bunny figurine if you want to take it to the next level. And don’t be afraid to play around with placement of the eggs and sign until you find what looks best to you.

Variations

You can personalize your DIY Easter egg wreath even further by trying out different variations, such as:

  • Adding other decorative elements like flowers, or figurines to make it stand out even more.
  • Experimenting with different color palettes to match your personal style and décor.
  • Incorporating natural elements like twigs, leaves, or feathers to give your wreath a rustic touch.
  • Making miniature versions of the wreath to use as table centerpieces for Easter dinner or as gifts for friends and family.
  • Instead of using moss, you can use faux grass or even shredded paper to give your wreath a different texture.
  • Use pastel-colored feathers instead of eggs for a more whimsical and playful look if you want to make this a Spring wreath instead.
  • Add some twinkle lights to the wreath for an extra festive touch.
  • Replace the burlap ribbon with a satin or patterned ribbon for a more elegant and sophisticated wreath.

No matter which variation you choose, the end result will be a beautiful symbol of spring and creativity that you can proudly display in your home.

  • Hang it outside on your porch using command hooks and add some fresh flowers or greenery around the base of the wreath to create a stunning visual display.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of eggs work best for this wreath?

Styrofoam or plastic eggs work best, as they are lightweight and easy to glue onto the wreath. I would not recommend using real eggs, even boiled eggs as they can easily break and spoil.

Can I use different types of moss for this wreath?

You can use any type of green or natural-colored moss that you prefer. You can even mix and match different textures for a more dynamic look.

How long does it take to make this wreath?

The time may vary depending on your crafting experience and how detailed you want to make your wreath. But on average it takes about 1 hour to complete. However, don’t be afraid to take breaks or work at your own pace. Crafting is meant to be fun and relaxing!

Is this project suitable for children?

Yes, with adult supervision. This is a great project for kids to get involved in and let their creativity shine. Just make sure to use caution when working with hot glue guns. Have them assist in the decorating rather than using it themselves.

Can I use this wreath for other holidays or occasions?

Sure! You can customize this wreath to fit any holiday or season by swapping out the eggs and sign. For example, you can use flowers and a “Welcome” sign for a spring/summer wreath. Or add ornaments and a “Merry Christmas” sign for a festive winter wreath.
