This DIY Egg Wreath can by completely customized to the colors that you pick for Spring. This year I am crushing on Coral, Navy, Mustard, and Teal for spring colors. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pastel color palette for Spring decorating. I did one last year and it has been one of my most favorite tables capes that I have done. I think that it is good to step outside of the box and try something a little different.
This is a great DIY Spring decor craft if you are wanting to add something new to your home but not wanting to spend a ton of money. For me I had all the supplies on hand so it cost me nothing to get started making my DIY Spring Egg Wreath.
DIY Egg Wreath Supplies
- Plastic Easter Eggs – One Large bag should be sufficient.
- Wreath Form
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Wooden Skewers
- Sturdy tall glass – Such as a Mason Jar.
You could call this a DIY Dollar Store Spring Wreath because all of the supplies can be purchased at your local Dollar Store.
DIY Egg Wreath Tutorial
The first step is going to be to paint your eggs!
Take your wooden skewer and poke it into one of the holes on the bottom of the egg. This will let you paint the entire egg without holding it with your fingers and making a mess.
If you are having trouble getting the paint to adhere to the eggs, here are some tips to help!
I found that if I painted the first coat of paint very thin and light on the the egg that it allowed the paint to dry quickly and the second coat will adhered better. DecoArt does make a Plastic paint medium that when mixed with paint helps it adhere to the object being painted.
Once you have painted the egg place the skewer in the mason jar and move one to the next egg.
I painted my Easter eggs in batches of the same color, this way I didn’t have to wash my brush after painting each egg.
The Eggs look so pretty painted like this that I was tempted to just call it a day and leave them in this cute wire basket!
That would be another cute cheap Spring decorating idea!
Now that the Eggs are painted the second step is to add them to the wreath.
I used a wire wreath form because that is what I had on hand and didn’t want to run to the store for a new wreath. I don’t recommend making this wreath on a wire form, a twine wreath would be much better. The wire wreath created open gaps that were hard to cover up.
I started my wreath by gluing the painted eggs along the inner circle of the wreath. Then I worked out from there adding a second and third row of eggs. I rotated the directions of the eggs to make them fit better together. I also tried to pay attention to how close I had eggs of the same color together. Sometimes I couldn’t help it and ended up with two eggs of the same color next to each other.
Keep working around your wreath until your spring egg wreath is as full as you would like it to be.
I used a command strip to hang my egg wreath in my dining room. I really like how the colors pop against the black door. These vibrant colors make me so happy!
