Every year about this time I start flipping through the latest craft magazines and without fail there is always an Easter Egg wreath of some sort. There are the fancy monochromatic/crackle paint eggs, the simple ones with one row of eggs, and, my personal favorite, the crazy whimsical, child-like wreaths that look like an Easter basket of sparkle formed a perfect little circle.
- Straw or foam wreath
- 3 Big ‘ol bags of plastic eggs
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Easter basket grass (preferably the spark-uh-ly/iridescent kind )
This is a simple, fun little project you can do with your kids.
Just glue your eggs onto the wreath, alternating colors. Then use a pencil to push the grass into the gaps.
It was super easy to put together and my little one was able to participate by handing me eggs and helping with the Easter grass. She’s very proud of her “most beautiful Easter wreath ever, it’s so spark-uh-ly!”
We originally planned on adding a big bow to the wreath, but couldn’t get it to look right.
I instantly regretted not having purchased one of those bowdabra things on QVC ten years ago. I can’t believe I remembered that. I might as well go buy a bedazzler in anticipation of future craft projects requiring 80s embellishment.
And on that note I’m out, later dudes 🙂
