DIY-easter-wreathOur Easter Wreath is an inexpensive, easy-to-make twist on the classic grapevine wreath and adds a festive Spring-fresh Easter touch to a door or wall. It also makes a great centerpiece on your Easter table as a fun “nest” for a stuffed or chocolate bunny or as a complement to an Easter floral arrangement.

Since the “eggs” are simply sponge-painted this is a great project to do with your kids – even toddlers will enjoy helping out!

Materials:

  • Papier mache and/or wooden eggs in 3-4 different sizes, 4-5 eggs in each size (smaller sizes are usually found in wood)
  • 1 medium-size grapevine wreath (ours is 14″ in diameter)
  • Craft paint in your selected colors — we used pastel blue, pink and yellow with soft white accents.
  • Use neutrals for a natural bird’s egg look, or brighter colors – the choices are endless!
  • Raffia in a complementary color (we used a natural green)
  • Natural sea sponge
  • Lo-temp hot glue
  • Floral wire for hanger (4″)

Step 1: Paint eggs
Using the sponge, paint eggs with base colors, completely coating surface. Once dry to the touch, lightly sponge white or a contrasting color over the base coat. Let dry.

Step 2: Glue eggs onto grapevine wreath
Using hot glue, glue eggs to top and sides of the wreath. Space eggs unevenly and turn them in different directions to create a natural look.

Step 3: Wrap raffia
Pull a small handful of raffia, fluff strands and loosely wrap around the wreath, pulling some strands around eggs. Secure raffia by tying/wrapping ends on the back of the wreath. Trim any wild ends. Add a bow if desired.

Step 4: Tie hanging wire
Tie a hanging loop from the back of the wreath (omit if using as a centerpiece)
