Depending on where you’re located, you may be loving the warmer weather lately. The birds are chirping, the butterflies are fluttering, and, of course, all thoughts are on the soon-to-be-arriving spring season. Whether you’re still battling snow or already wearing flip flops, get a head start on decorating your door with this speckled DIY Easter egg wreath. You’ll be so happy you already finished this adorable wreath when spring arrives!
- 16 inch Metal Wreath Form
- Kelly Green Excelsior
- 22-Gauge Green Floral Wire
- (2) Packs Mini Speckled Pastel Eggs
- Heavy Duty Glue Gun
- Pink Ribbon
Step 1. Begin by placing large clumps of the kelly green excelsior into the concave side of the wire wreath. Use the green floral wire to wrap around the wreath, securing the grass in place. Continue until the entire wreath is filled. Don’t worry if it seems like the grass isn’t very secure on the wreath. The hot glue you use to add all the eggs will help!
Step 2. Apply a bit of hot glue to the back of a speckled egg and hold in place on wreath until secure. I wanted to make sure the green wire was going to be sufficiently camouflaged so I added eggs to those sections first.
Step 3. Continue filling in the wreath with eggs until you’re happy with the look. I’m going to warn you that this step actually takes quite a bit of time but it’s totally worth it to get that nice full look and coverage. You can either work on this wreath a bit at a time over the next few weeks or pop in a movie and get it all done in one shot!
Step 4. After you feel like you’ve added enough eggs, make sure to hold the wreath up against a wall to double-check for any bald spots. Add a few more eggs if necessary!
Step 5. Make a bow out of a 30″ piece of ribbon and trim if necessary. I actually had this pretty pink ribbon in my personal craft stash but Consumer Crafts has tons of ribbon options to choose from!
Step 6. Use your handy glue gun one more time to adhere the ribbon in place. Take extra care on this step since the glue is really hot and the heat travels through the thin ribbon material easily!
As soon as the ribbon glue has hardened completely, you can hang your adorable DIY Easter egg wreath!
Hope you enjoy making your own festive speckled DIY Easter egg wreath!
