Our 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!
- 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)
