Hey there, beautiful people!
I’ve been in a “decorate for Easter” mood lately, so this week I decided to make a little Easter wreath for my living room.
I initially wanted to make a cute pastel-themed Easter wreath, but I couldn’t settle on the exact colours I wanted (I’m a little bit embarrassed by how long I spent on Pinterest looking at different Easter wreaths trying to decide which colours I wanted). Eventually, I decided to take a different approach and instead make an Easter wreath that was inspired by a bird’s nest.
DIY Easter wreath with speckled eggs
- A 12″grapevine wreath
- Foam eggs + acrylic paint. You can save yourself a bit of time by buying premade speckled eggs, but if you want to paint them, I used:
- Jute twine, torn apart with your hands until the fibres are separated
- Twigs and sticks
- A hot glue gun + hot glue sticks
Preparing the eggs:
I began by painting my foam eggs blue, white, and beige using acrylic paint. Once the eggs were dry, I added the speckle effect using the instructions in this tutorial by Molly @ Just a Little Creativity.
Creating the Easter wreath
While my eggs were drying, I started work on the wreath itself.
Using my hot glue gun, I glued sticks and twigs to the wreath form at random to give it a little more body. I then glued jute fibres (just jute rope I had torn up by hand) to the bottom 2/3rds of the wreath form.
Next, I used my hot glue gun to glue the speckled eggs, feathers, twigs, and moss on top of the jute fibres.
There’s honestly 0 skill involved in this part – just do whatever you think looks nice. I did find that adding the elements at random (i.e. not in layers, but instead “I’ll put this moss here, then that egg there, then a twig here”) gave the wreath a nice, natural look.
I kept layering the twigs/moss/jute fibres/etc until the wreath was full enough by the very scientific standard of “Looks alright to me”.
And with that, the DIY Easter wreath is finished.
