I had a ton of plastic Easter Eggs lying around, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them. Then it dawned on me: I could make an Easter Egg Wreath with what I had already. I love making different themed wreaths for the various holidays, and I know you’ll love making them, too.

Tools and Materials
For supplies, A hot glue gun will allow you to attach the eggs and decorations to the wreath frame. (Disclaimer: I have mixed feelings about using hot glue; I feel like when you are storing the items that have hot glue in a non-temperature-controlled space, they seem to lose their stickiness.)
How to create your Easter Egg Wreath
Once I had all my supplies ready to go, I sprayed-painted the easter eggs (outside in the middle of winter) and brought them inside to dry. Although they are not perfectly painted, I figured I could repaint the entire wreath when I was done. It’s okay if they don’t all match, the different shades add texture and make it look even better!
Next, I used a wired wreath frame that I had on hand. It was actually perfect because it was bent inwards, which allowed the eggs to sit perfectly in the grooves. Luckily, it worked out because I sprayed the exact number of eggs needed.
After that, I attached these smaller eggs in the spaces between the larger eggs to hide the wreath form. I placed the eggs in different directions because I didn’t want a pattern that would distract from the overall design. I continued to add the little eggs around the wreath until I found the design I was looking for.
Pro tip: To fill the spaces and hide the wire wreath, you can add moss or peacock feathers! One idea is to rip up some burlap that would coordinate beautifully with neutral eggs. What I did is add Easter filler all around the wreath by taking it in bunches and attaching it with hot glue. To clean up the wreath, I trimmed and tucked it into different places so that it would be more appealing to the eye.
Here is the finished product!
