When I pictured this project in my head, to be honest- I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. So I sat on the materials for a while. When I finally put this DIY egg wreath together, it was so easy and turned out SO DANG ADORABLE, that I wondered why I worried and waited!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY egg wreath:
- 10 inch Grapevine Wreath
- 8 inch Grapevine Wreath
- Mossy Twig Vine Garland
- Spanish Moss
- Pastel Plaid Ribbon
- 1.5 inch Wood Eggs
- Brown Cloth Covered Floral Wire
- Innocence Pink Chalk Paint
- Escape Blue Chalk Paint
- Delicate Yellow Chalk Paint
- Raw Umber Craft Paint
Begin by painting your wooden eggs. I chose yellow, pink and blue chalk paint. I used nine, 1.5″ eggs.
Using an old toothbrush, load the bristles with brown acrylic paint, and flick paint onto the eggs to give them a “speckled” appearance.
Unwind the twig garland. Lay it across the wreath (smaller wreath on the back), and trim the ends to fit the width of the wreath with a little bit of overhang. (We are basically creating a twig “wall” on the front of the wreath as a basket to hold the eggs in place.)
Cover any exposed wire with Spanish moss. Add moss to the bottom of the basket you created.
