Saw It, Pinned It, Did It: Easter Egg Wreath

I'm so excited to share this super cute Easter Egg Wreath with you all!  I love the fact that I have a front door where I can hang cute wreaths for everyone to see.  When I saw this Easter Egg Wreath, I knew I had to make it for my front door.

 I headed off to the dollar store and Michaels to get my supplies.  I already had the hot glue gun and glue sticks, so I just needed the plastic eggs, some ribbon, and a foam wreath.

Supplies
Hot Glue Gun (& hot glue sticks)
Foam Wreath
Plastic Easter Eggs
Ribbon

A lot of you probably have many of these items on hand, so this wreath should be pretty inexpensive to make.  I went to Michaels to get the foam wreath, and with my 40% off coupon, the wreath was about $5.  The plastic eggs came 12 in a pack for $1 each, and I used 4.5 packs of eggs on my wreath, so $4.50.  I picked up some yellow ribbon from the dollar store, but didn't end up using it.  I used the ribbon I found at Michaels, which was more expensive, but nicer.  It was about $3, but I didn't use all of it.  So in total, my wreath ended up costing me around $12.

Step 1
Glue plastic eggs to inside part of the wreath.  You don't have to glue them on the back of the wreath, because no one sees the back when it's hanging on the door.


Step 2
Continue gluing eggs around the wreath until you have four rows completed.


Step 3
After the glue has dried, tie ribbon in a bow around the bottom of the wreath.  You can glue it in place if you need to, but mine stayed on it's own.

Step 4
Hang your wreath!  Mine wouldn't hang nicely on my wreath hanger, so I took a piece of hanging wire, made a loop, and stuck it in the foam wreath so I could hang it.


I told you this was easy!  And don't worry if you see white space when you look at your wreath (I was worried about this when I was done), because you can't see all of the white space when you aren't looking at it up close.



What do you think?  I love it!  Probably my favorite SPD project I've ever done!  Now if only Spring would get here and all of this snow would go away....
