Easter is coming upon us so quickly! I decided to make a new Easter wreath for my door this year. I wanted something different. My previous wreath, and one that I will probably put up again closer to Easter, is a lovely grapevine cross with florals. It’s beautiful and significant to our family, but I also wanted to try a look with a pop of color! That’s how this Yarn Wrapped Easter Egg Wreath was born.
While browsing the Consumer Crafts website, I came across a skein of fluffy green yarn. It’s mean for baby projects, I’m sure, but to me it screamed “Easter!!” So I put it in my craft, along with a few other things, and it was delivered to my house in a jiffy! It’s the perfect base for this easy Easter Egg Wreath. I’m including the link to the yarn, as well as the other items that I ordered from Consumer Crafts, so that you can check it out.
- 12 inch Styrofoam wreath
- Darice Soft and Sweet Baby Yarn: Lime Green
- (3) 2 3/4 inch Foam Easter Eggs
- Acrylic Paint in bright colors
- Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
- Ribbon for bow
Begin by painting the eggs, one in each color. Let them dry in between coats of paint. It took me three coats of paint per egg to get complete coverage. Let dry completely. While waiting for them to dry, wrap the wreath form in the green yarn. Use the hot glue gun to secure the ends.
Go ahead and wrap the ribbon around the top of the wreath to create the bow. Cut 3 lengths of yarn. Cut one longer and two smaller. Hot glue one end of a piece of yarn to the top of an egg, and hot glue the other end to the wreath. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
And that’s it! You’re ready to hang the wreath on the door and enjoy a bright spot of color to your Easter season!
