We have guests staying with us over the Easter break so I want to make the house really welcoming and festive, so I thought donning this gorgeous natural Easter egg wreath on the front door would be a good start. This DIY Easter egg wreath was a breeze to make and costed $5 for the foam ring and plastic eggs, the rest I had in the house or I found in the yard.
What you will need:
- $2 plastic eggs
- Plastic primer spray
- Hammered finish spray paint
- Old toothbrush for paint fleck effect
- An old tub to spray paint in
- Cling wrap
- Pale blue acrylic paint
- Foam ring
- Hot glue gun
- Hessian scraps
- Leaf sprigs
- Tree berries / fake berries
Grab your plastic eggs if you are really dedicated you can blow out your own real eggs but personally I don’t have the time to do that nor the stomach. Last time I did that it put me off eggs for ages. What I did was spray these plastic eggs (pictured below) with plastic primer.
TIP: Spray in a tub lined with cling wrap to save on clean up time.
Once dry, spray with the hammered finish spray paint or colour of your choice.
Once dry, fleck with a watered down light blue paint mixture. I used an old toothbrush and flicked the paint onto the eggs using my thumb. Do this outside as it gets everywhere!
Wrap your hessian scraps around your foam ring; hold the hessian ends in place with the twigs.
Glue down your dried eggs around your wreath with your hot glue gun. Accessorise with your found feathers, berries and leaf sprigs. I hot glued a loop of hessian string to hang the wreath to the door.
I am so happy with the outcome of this little DIY. I can see this being used as a table centrepiece with a candle in the middle later in the year as well.
