10 Minute DIY Easter Egg Wreath - A craft so EASY anyone can make it!

The Easiest DIY Easter Egg Wreath

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a craft whiz.  However, while on a walk this morning with Annabelle, I found inspiration!  One of our neighbors had a festive Easter wreath on their front door.  I hang wreaths (store-bought usually…again, I’ve never been confident in my DIY abilities) for every occasion– Christmas, Halloween, etc., but I didn’t have one for Easter!

Then I remembered a bunch of extra plastic eggs my mother-in-law had brought over last year and I had stuffed in the hall closet.  And for some reason we had a couple metal wreath frames in the closet too.  I started getting more and more excited as I thought about it– I had extra pastel pipe cleaners…and a hot glue gun…surely I could put something together!

I laid out my supplies:

These are all things I had on hand: plastic Easter eggs, pipe cleaners, a 10″ wreath frame (figured I would start small for my first attempt), and a hot glue gun — but you could buy this stuff for probably $15 or less.

I simply glued the eggs to the frame.  (Before I did this I arranged the eggs in a pattern so I wouldn’t accidentally end up with two of the same color next to each other– I had a limited number of eggs since I was only using what I found in storage.)

Once all the eggs were attached, I decided to jazz up the wreath with some pipe cleaners.  I played around with it until I had created some faux bows.  Here’s how:

Slide one pipe cleaner under the wreath.

Cross the ends of pipe cleaner and twist twice to keep in place.

Slide a second pipe cleaner under the wreath and fasten the same way by twisting.

Fold the ends of the second pipe cleaner in to form a “bow.”

Twist the first pipe cleaner over the ends of the bow to secure.

Last, I trimmed the ends of the pipe cleaners so they didn’t stick out quite so far and tied on a ribbon bow for a finishing touch.

I’m so happy with how my first DIY Easter wreath turned out!  Especially since it was easy and free!    I think I could get the hang of this crafting thing. 🙂
