I have spring fever.

Yes, I know it’s only the middle of February but for whatever reason, I am craving spring…big time. 

Maybe it’s because Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring, or maybe it’s because the days are getting noticeably longer, or it could be that the winter chill has lingered just a bit too long for me. 

Whatever the reason, the anticipation of warmer days, blooming flowers, and the pastel colors of spring have me craving ways to infuse spring into our home.

Now that you have the wreath making materials, let’s dive into the easy steps to create a wreath that embodies the beauty of springtime and Easter celebrations.

Cover the Straw Wreath Base With Excelsior

The first thing you’ll need to do is remove the plastic wrap from around the straw wreath and discard.

Then, take clumps of the natural Easter grass/Excelsior and begin placing it around the wreath base.

This is the messiest part of this DIY wreath, but that’s the fun in crafting…right?! 

Secure the grass on the wreath base using hot glue, making sure that the whole thing is evenly covered including the outside and inside of the wreath.

Nestle in the Faux Speckled Eggs

Arrange the speckled eggs strategically on top of the grass, varying the larger eggs with the smaller eggs and mixing colors for visual interest. 

Use hot glue to secure each egg to the wreath.

Hang the Finished Wreath

Once all of the speckled eggs have been hot glued the entire way around the wreath, it’s ready for hanging! 

Easy Easter egg wreath can be customized to fit any design style.

To hang our wreath, I simply added a small piece of floral wire to the back of the wreath to hang it in our entryway. 

But, you could also use ribbon to hang the wreath by looping it around and then tying it in a bow.

This gingham ribbon would be a really pretty way to hang this Easter wreath.

Tips

  • Before you start hot gluing, imagine the design you want for your wreath. Think about the placement of grass, eggs, and the overall design.
  • Adding the natural Easter grass can get messy. It might be a good idea to cover your workspace with an old tablecloth or drop cloth to make cleanup easier. You’ll probably want to have a vacuum nearby too.
  • For a more natural look, vary the size and color of the plastic Easter eggs. Distribute them evenly around the wreath, paying attention to balance and symmetry.
  • Use plenty of hot glue to secure each element in place.
  • Add personalized touches such as colorful eggs, small faux flowers, tiny nests, or other spring themed accents to make your wreath uniquely yours.

Where can I hang my beautiful Easter wreath?

You’ll want to keep your Easter wreath inside where it won’t be exposed to the elements. 

Think about hanging your Easter wreath on the interior side of a front door, above a fireplace, on a hook in the kitchen, or on a blank wall in an entryway like I did.

Basically, this wreath can be hung anywhere in your home where you want to add a little springtime charm!

Could I use a grapevine wreath as the base for an Easter wreath?

Absolutely!

Using a grapevine wreath as the base for this Easter wreath will add a different texture and a rustic charm to your creation.

Grapevine wreaths are readily available at craft stores, are versatile, and provide a natural and organic look that is perfect for this spring wreath.

What is the best way to store this wreath after the Easter season?

Store your Easter wreath in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and humidity.

Hang the wreath on a hook in storage or in a closet rather than storing it flat so it maintains its shape.

Also, store the wreath in a spot where it won’t be compressed or squeezed by other items to make sure it retains its original shape and charm for seasons to come.
