Yarn Easter Egg Wreath

If you didn't see my previous post, Easter is just around the corner and one of my Spring projects was making an Easter wreath!  I was inspired by this yarn egg wreath on Pinterest and I ended up choosing non-traditional Easter colors because I'm not too fond of pastels.  Overall, it was easy to make, but it took a little more time than I expected.  I worked on it a little each night for about a week.  Here are the materials I used:

  • 12" foam wreath
  • 6 large plastic eggs
  • 24 medium plastic eggs
  • 12 small plastic eggs
  • 5 different shades of yarn or twine
  • Glue gun and A LOT of glue

Once you have all your materials together, all you have to do is start gluing and wrapping your eggs!  I ended up wrapping my eggs 3 different ways... (1) single layer wrap (twine egg in the above picture), (2) haphazard wrap (bottom multicolor egg), and (3) yarn ball wrap (right lavender egg).

I attached the eggs directly to the foam wreath as I went, starting with the large eggs, medium eggs next, then filling in any gaps with the small eggs.  If I had to do it all over again, I would have wrapped the wreath with yarn before I attached the eggs so I wouldn't have to worry about any of the foam showing through.

I love the way it turned out...bright, cheerful, and puts me in the mood for Spring! Next on my Easter to dos...Easter baskets and take Leah on a trip to see the Easter bunny! :)
