If you’ve searched stores for Easter decorations or an Easter wreath, you’ve probably discovered they’re really quite expensive, and even if you find affordable décor, it’s hard to locate exactly what you want. Craft shows and stores that sell handcrafted items are great sources for Easter items, but although handmade items are truly priceless they are sometimes too costly for those on a limited budget. Also, many ready-made wreaths in stores are made in other countries, and they’re very cheaply designed using low-quality components.
Instead of searching for an Easter wreath, consider making one. You can make a beautiful Easter wreath covered in colorful plastic Easter eggs and classic Easter grass, and it can be further embellished with an adorable bunny. This is a craft project that absolutely anyone can do, and it won’t cost a small fortune to make. When friends, neighbors, and loved ones see this eye-catching wreath, they’ll definitely want one too!
To make an Easter wreath you’ll need dozens of plastic Easter eggs of various sizes and colors, super glue, a hot glue gun, a solid straw wreath, classic green Easter grass, a small Easter bunny of your choice, and narrow gauge wire for hanging. A lightweight plush or plastic bunny is perfect for this project, and you’ll find many different options at your local craft store. You’ll even find plastic bunnies that look just like the chocolate variety!
Optionally you can use other types of lightweight Easter eggs of appropriate size, or you can use a combination of various types. I coated some of the Easter eggs on my wreath with clear sealer containing bits of iridescent glitter. This isn’t necessary, but the addition of gold or multicolored flecks makes it even more eye-catching and beautiful.
Begin by gluing plastic eggs together with super glue so they won’t come apart on the wreath. Next, using a hot glue gun, and begin attaching the eggs to the wreath. Place them as close together as possible, and randomly add various colors and sizes.
Once the wreath is completely covered with plastic eggs, begin gluing artificial grass in between the open spaces. Trim the grass if necessary. The hot glue will slightly melt the grass, but it will hold tight to the wreath while covering any openings.
Lastly, attach an Easter bunny of your choice to the inside bottom of the wreath, and hang it on a wall or a door. This wreath will definitely get lots of compliments, and best of all, your handmade wreath will have cost much less than anything of comparable value from the store.
