I have always wanted an Easter Egg Wreath. They’re full of whimsy, super-cute, and will add a great pop of color to your home during the Easter season. This is an EASY craft project that even those who consider themselves to be “craft-impaired” can do! You’re going to love your wreath!

Start by snapping together your Easter eggs. Make sure you have a nice variety of colors. I used a mix of green, pink, purple, blue, orange, and yellow.

Get your glue gun plugged in and heating up!

Start gluing eggs to your wreath form.

I made sure to put my glue along the “seam” of the egg, helping to prevent the eggs from popping open once attached to the wreath. Start by gluing the eggs in one area, and work your way around the wreath.

Glue your eggs to the front, top, and interior curve of your wreath, leaving the back free of eggs. Continue to work your way around the wreath, working to evenly space colored eggs.

You will start to notice “holes” in your wreath, where larger areas of your wreath form show through. You will end up filling in these spaces with Easter grass.

To fill in the holes, gather up a small pinch of Easter grass, and secure with glue. You may want to experiment to see which method works best for you. I found myself alternating between applying the glue directly in the hole and shoving the bit of grass in the space and applying the glue directly to the grass and placing it in the desired hole. Just remember to be careful if using a high-temp glue gun, as you will likely get some glue on your fingers.

Your finished wreath should look something like this! In less than an hour, I created a fun Easter decoration with a TON of kid-appeal.

Bright Plastic Easter Eggs

*I ordered a set of 144 Colorful Easter Eggs from Oriental Trading for just $8.48! That’s about $0.70 a dozen! Can’t beat that!

Wreath Form

Multi-Color Easter Grass

*I loved the Easter Grass I got from Oriental Trading. It featured a mixture of pastel pink, blue, green, yellow, and purple grass, and was just perfect for this project. I’ll use the leftovers in our Easter baskets! (It would also be great on top of baby shower gifts!)

Glue Gun

*I recommend using a low-temp glue gun if possible, as you may need to use your fingers to push the bits of Easter grass in the “holes” – resulting in glue on your fingers! (Be careful!)

*I just fell in LOVE with the White Chevron Burlap from Oriental Trading. This burlap ribbon is SO versatile and would make the perfect bow for your Easter wreath.
