Easter is next month and even though winter is making an attempt at an extended stay, I am busy getting ready for warm weather and spring festivities.
I wanted to make a colourful, fun and inexpensive easter wreath to get the kids in the springtime spirit. I decided on a bright and fluffy tulle wreath adorned with colourful easter eggs.
What you will need:
Foam floral wreath form (mine was form Dollar Tree $1.25)
Foam easter egg picks (also from Dollar Tree $1.25)
Tulle 25 yards (Walmart craft section $3.97 x2 = $7.94)
Ribbon for hanging (optional, already had this)
My total: $10.44
Measure your lengths of tulle to your desired size. My foam wreath was green which I didn’t want to show through so I cut about 10″ long lengths. This wreath used all of the tulle on each roll.
To cover the green foam, I wrapped the tulle around 2 times before tying it off on the outside edge with a double knot. This thickened up the layers of tulle on the wreath form without having to cram extra knots along the outside.
Once you fill your wreath form you will have something like this. The tulle may look a little wild and crazy at this point but we will trim it up in another couple of steps.
Break off the easter egg picks at a length that you can push them into the wreath, but not so long that they will pierce through to the other side. I secured all of the large eggs first in a random pattern and then filled in the spaces around them with the smaller eggs. You may need to move the tulle out of your way to push the picks through.
Once I had all of my eggs in place, I trimmed the tulle down by about an inch to clean it up and make it more uniform. That took away that wild and crazy look I started with.
Voila! This is the finished product.
This is cute, cheap and happy easter wreath that is super simple to make.
I hope you enjoy making one of your own or adding your own twist!
