Tutorial Tuesday: Easter Wreath

Last year I saw this idea to make a wreath out of easter eggs. Well I saw it too late in the season and decided not to make it. I wanted to make this year though, and I'm so glad that I did. It's super easy and pretty cheap. All you need is 4 bags of plastic eggs, ribbon and cardboard.


This is how I made it:

1) I took some sturdy cardboard and cut out a circle

2) Then I added the ribbon to the cardboard

3) Then I glued on the eggs with a glue gun. I did it very randomly. I used brown paint and a toothbrush to speckle the eggs first.

4) I used both regular sized eggs and mini eggs.

5) To fill in the gaps, I glue easter grass everywhere.

6) I then gave the grass a haircut :)

7) I then added a couple more mini eggs on the top and hung it on my door.

That is really cute! I was wondering what type of brown paint you used? I have been wanting to have speckled robin eggs and didn't want to pay for the spray paint that does it. :) SO crafty!!!

I TOTALLY wanted to make a wreath JUST like this but when I told my husband about it, he shot the idea down! I was so disappointed that he didn't want me to make one. I'll have to show him yours and see if it changed his mind.
Thanks for linking it up!

I'm so glad you posted this. I picked up a bunch of eggs but I haven't made a wreath because I didn't want to spend the money on it. I'll be working on this tomorrow.
