Happy almost Easter weekend!

I hope you have some fun plans for hanging out with family but if you don't, why not grab the kids and make an Easter egg wreath! This wreath is affordable, quick and easy, and I'll bet all the craft stores have their stuff on sale too, so it should be even cheaper to make!

We are packing up our home to move out of state (find out why here) , but I made the time to get together with a friend to make Easter egg wreaths. We both have crazy busy lives, but needed some craft therapy and we enjoyed some laughs, yummy iced coffee and baby snuggles too! 😉


How to make an Easter egg wreath

This wreath is so simple to make, it hardly warrants a tutorial. However, there are a few tips and tricks that I'll share along the way to ensure you successful wreath making!

Oh, and by the way, this is an affordable DIY wreath and cost less than $18 for all the supplies! Most of our supplies came from Hobby Lobby, but I'm linking to similar products on Amazon below in case you don't have a HL near you.

Supplies

* you can use a wide variety of eggs for this wreath, even plastic ones!
** I grabbed a couple bags of this green moss from the dollar store but had to dip into my stash of Spanish and reindeer moss because we didn't have enough


Making the wreath

First off, this is a messy project! The grapevine and the moss will get everywhere, so make sure you're working on a covered surface or somewhere that is easy to clean!

Getting started

We found it easiest to lay out our eggs on the wreath form to get a rough idea of how we wanted our finished wreaths to look and to make sure we had enough of each color egg for a balanced look.

Designer Tip: Hot gluing an egg to the grapevine wreath is a little tricky because there isn't a smooth surface. We solved this by gluing an egg first to a small piece of moss, then hot gluing the moss to the wreath.

Once all the eggs were attached, we went back and filled in the bare parts on the wreath form with more moss.

The dollar store moss was a little tricky to work with because it doesn't really clump (it's a bunch of tiny little pieces). We used more glue with that moss and also found it was better to tuck that moss into the small holes between the grapevine so it would stay in place better.


This is the kind of DIY wreath that doesn't take a lot of concentration, so we were able to talk and visit while we crafted. 

Designer tip: to make this wreath with kids, I would recommend using a foam ring for the wreath base because it will be easier to attach the eggs.

Once we had all the Easter eggs and moss on our wreaths, we made a couple quick bows and attached them to our wreaths with craft wire. Please let me know in the comments if you'd like a bow tutorial!

Here are the finished wreaths hanging on our respective doors.

A new wreath adds such a fresh and pretty look to the front door and makes it feel more welcoming!

It was difficult to get a good picture of the wreath on our glass front door, so I brought it inside and hung it on my chippy vintage door for a few full shots.



I would love to know if you're inspired to make an Easter egg wreath! And Happy Easter! This is such a special time of the year when we remember what Jesus did for us on the cross, and the victory that is ours because of him!
