10 minute Easter wreath


This wreath really only takes 10 minutes & its super cheap too! Total cost....$5.
I bought 2 bags of 40 plastic eggs ($ 2 each) & a wreath for a $1 all at our Dollar store. I had ribbon & glue sticks on hand.


First place a few on the wreath to see how you’d like to arrange them. Then place a few small a drops of hot glue on areas of the eggs where they touch the wreath. Continue around the wreath gluing eggs as you go. Fill in around the edges to give it more fullness.

I only ended up using about 70 eggs. You may need more or less depending on the size of your wreath.

Add your ribbon & hang!

Another blogger pal of mine made this same wreath this week. It makes me crave jelly beans!

Trisha said...

Texwisgirl- It does look like giant jelly beans :) I end up making one each year. I just pop off the eggs after easter & use the wreath for whatever I need it for next. Problem is I can't always remember where I stuck the extra eggs each time!!

This is wonderful for my beloved in laws. The just moved into a retirement community and have a sweet little area right outside their door where they can decorate - this will be perfect for there - and it is not so expensive that they can't just recycle the wreath for something else and pluck the eggs off like you said [they don't have a lot of storage]

Thanks for the wonderful idea. [and yeah, it does look like jelly beans. :)]

I'M DOING THIS!!!!
I HAVE to. (I still have my Christmas wreath hanging on the door....I haven't had the heart to take it down.
Thanks for the motivation:))

Too cute! Although I think my girls would be jumping up to try and pull those eggs off. They are their favorite toys right now!

Love it! I am thinking about hanging it in the house until Easter, then taking it to the family to use as a centerpiece on our 'snack' table! Stick a large pillar candle in the middle- or better yet--> a bowl of jelly beans!!

That looks cute. Your eggs have a little glitter on them? I'm always about a little bling on my stuff. I have nothing on my front door so maybe this is it! Kids are on Spring Break and this might give them something to do for me. I like it.

Cute wreath, great minds must think alike. I made a similiar version of this wreath using egg garland awhile ago. I'd love for you to take a look at it.
