Over a year ago I saw this pin on Pinterest.
Because I’m a procrastinator (especially when it comes to crafting), Easter came and went without making this wreath. By fabulous fiancee knew my plans and picked up a bunch of eggs for me the day after Easter last year…1/2 off whoot whoot!!!
Tired of looking at those eggs, I decided this was the year I was going to make this wreath. Off to Hobby Lobby I went with my 40% off coupon where I picked up an 18″ straw wreath and some fabulous yellow ribbon. With all of my supplies ready Archie had to get in on the action…
I carefully wrapped the ribbon around the wreath to cover the straw from showing should there be any holes between the eggs. (Sorry for the horrible pics – There is no natural light in my kitchen)
Then I was ready to start gluing the eggs on. You will need way more eggs than you think you will need. I ran out of eggs rather quickly. I didn’t count, but I’d guess it took well over 100 eggs.
That was okay though. Stepping back for a moment made me realize there was way too much space between the eggs.
I found that it was easiest to place the eggs in a small bowl and make three zags of glue on the egg. This method kept the egg in place and allowed me to place enough glue in the right place. I also found the best way to ensure there were not huge spaces between the eggs was to plan out where the egg went before I put glue on it. (Duh!)
I started at the inside of the wreath and worked my way out in a circular motion until the entire wreath was covered. I tried the bow a few different ways but settled on glueing it on an egg just right of center. To hang the wreath, I wrapped floral wire around the wrath and looped it on the back.
I’m so pleased I finally finished this craft!!!
What other lovely Easter crafts should I make?
