Easter Egg Wreath

Up-cycle your plastic Easter eggs

A festive Easter Egg Wreath

Do you have a big bag of plastic Easter eggs collected from years past?  Put them to good use with this bright and cheerful Easter egg wreath!  This craft is intended to be a joint project between parent and child.  Adults should handle the assembling of the egg wreath – a hot glue gun is necessary – while kids can help add fun decorations afterwards!

Craft Supplies:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard
  • One large and one small bowl
  • Pen or pencil
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Ribbon
  • Easter themed stickers
  • Fabric paint

How to Make it:

  1. Find a piece of cardboard that is large enough for your wreath.  I used one side of the box that my son’s rubber boots came in.
  2. Use the large and small bowls to trace the outer and inner circles of a wreath onto the cardboard.  Cut out your wreath.
  3. Before you start gluing, arrange the plastic Easter eggs on the wreath so you can decide on placement and color pattern.  Depending on how large you’ve decided to make your wreath, you may have two or three rows of eggs.
  4. Using your hot glue gun, glue down one or two eggs at a time, holding them for a 10-20 seconds to allow the glue to set.
  5. Once all the eggs have been glued to the wreath, tie a few bows with different colors of ribbon and hot glue them to a few of the eggs.
  6. Now you can invite your kids to help you finish decorating the wreath!
  7. Place stickers on some of the eggs and use fabric paint to create designs on the others.
  8. When the paint has dried, use a piece of ribbon to hang your wreath on the door and show your Easter cheer!
