Make a simple Easter wreath using this simple tutorial. The foam shapes are simple to use for creating and weather durable!
As I’ve mentioned before, since we have always lived in student apartments we never had many holiday decorations. Just a few for Halloween and Christmas, but nothing else. So now that I have a blog and a bigger space to decorate I am trying to slowly build up my holiday decoration collection.
Are you ready to learn how to make the simplest Easter wreath ever? Seriously. The simplest. I made this Lucky Clover Wreath for St. Patrick’s Day. I had several readers tell me that they made and loved it, and I know that mine brought a smile to my face, so I decided to use the same technique to make a simple Easter wreath.
This simple Easter wreath took me 20 minutes max. Gotta love hot glue and foam shapes! I found these sparkly eggs and bunnies at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores and grabbed several bags of them. If you haven’t noticed, I am loving crafting with foam shapes. Not the classiest, sure, but it is so easy and convenient, not to mention affordable! They are also durable and crisp-looking. I may be developing a new obsession.
Gather your supplies:
* styrofoam wreath forms (mine were 16 inches)
* hot glue gun and glue
* ribbon or fabric for wrapping the wreath form
* foam eggs and bunnies
Hot glue the end of your ribbon to the back of your wreath. Wrap the wreath with ribbon, dotting glue on the back of the wreath occasionally to keep the ribbon in place. Glue the other end of the ribbon to the back of the wreath once you are finished wrapping.
Now plan the layout of your eggs so you are sure you will glue them in the right place. This is a crucial step! Also plan the placement of the bunny.
Hot glue the eggs and the bunny to your wreath.
Cut a piece of ribbon the length that you want the “hook” for your wreath to be. Hot glue this onto the back of your wreath very well so that it is strong and secure.
You are done! Go hang your simple Easter wreath and admire it in all of its glory!
Maybe if you’re lucky you will find a little dragon curled up on your doorstep like I did. Swoon.
