Egg-celent Easter Wreath

Featured

Make sure the Easter bunny doesn’t miss your house with this easy, egg-celent DIY wreath.

Easter Wreath_social mediaFacebook + Instagram 01

All you need is:

Step 1: Print out the egg template.

Step 2: Use your scissors to cut out your egg template on top of some poster board.  We picked four pastel colors that were perfect for Easter. You’ll need roughly 12 egg cut outs.

Step 3: Once you have your eggs cut out, you can decorate them with your favorite designs.  We used glitter gel pens, cause everything’s better with glitter! We put some simple designs but you can always draw pictures or even write some things you’re most thankful for.

Step 4: When you’re done decorating your eggs, arrange them so that they form a wreath.  Then, start taping them together one at a time.

Step 5: You can easily make a bow for your wreath out of ribbon, but what fun would that be? Duct tape offers you cooler patterns and it’s just as easy to make.  Tear off a 6 inch strip of duct tape and fold each end towards the center. Pinch the center together vertically and use a ¼ inch piece of duct tape to keep it in place.  Now you have your very own duct tape bow. We attached ours to the top center of the wreath but it would be just as nice to make a few more to attach all over.

Step 6: All that’s left now is to add a small piece of ribbon to the back of your wreath so that you can hang it up; and now you’re all ready for the Easter bunny’s visit!

Have a Hoppy Day!
