Last year I started seeing lots of different types of wreaths popping up all over Pinterest and I loved them. This year, I decided to do more than just pin them, I’m going to make some. This Easter Egg wreath is my first and I love how it turned out. I did realize that my wreath holder is somewhere in the attic with the Christmas decorations that haven’t seen the light of day in about 4 years! I need to head to the store and get one for year-round use.
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Styrofoam Wreath Form (I got the small one from the Dollar Tree)
- 30 feet of ribbon (I got 4 spools of 3yds each at the Dollar Tree)
- Plastic Easter Eggs (I got a package of 18 at the Dollar Tree)
Since I already owned my glue gun and glue sticks this craft cost me $6.00=tax to make!
- Heat up the glue gun.
- Remove the ribbon from the spool (I found it easier to work with this way).
- Add a dot of glue on the inside of the wreath form and adhere the end of the ribbon.
- Wrap the ribbon tightly around the form adding a drop of glue on the inside every 3-4 wraps.
- When you run out of ribbon, add a dot of glue and overlap the new ribbon with the old and continue until the wreath is completely covered.
- Cut about a 2′ piece of ribbon and fold it in half. Wrap the ribbon around the wreath and slip the ends through, tie the loose ends together for hanging.
- Place a thick line of glue about 5″ long on the wreath and start adding eggs. make sure the narrow end is pointing into the middle.
- Continue this process until the wreath is completed.
- Allow the glue to dry completely before hanging.
As you can see it is a pretty easy craft that took me about an hour to make. I love the way it looks on my door and my neighbor commented on it seconds after I put it up!
