The weather’s getting brighter, we’re all feeling a little more hopeful, and you know what that means – it’s time for some Easter arts and crafts!  Today we’ll be working on a few variations of an Easter wreath, perfect for cheering up your front door, or for use hiding clues in an Easter egg hunt!

We have two gorgeous designs for you to choose from, plus all the instructions below.

Let’s get cracking!

Easter Wreath #1 – Ring of Eggs

Our first Easter door wreath is incredibly simple, and perfect for doing with the children. You can do it as we suggest or go wild and make your own designs!

What you need:

  • A paper plate (colour doesn’t matter but pick one you like anyway)
  • Our free Easter Egg printables – one and two
  • Thin card stock
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to assemble:

  1. Print out our fun, colourful egg in the designs you like best
  2. Cut out your eggs carefully (you’ll need 22 to make our layered version)
  3. Take your paper plate and cut out the middle so only the rim remains
  4. Using the card stock, glue down the paper egg designs and cut out once dry
  5. Arrange your card eggs around the edge of the plate until you’re happy – we overlapped for a seamless look
  6. Glue down and place something heavy on top to help it stick
  7. Attach a loop of ribbon or string to the back of the wreath to hang

Easter Wreath #2 – Little Bunny Cottontail

Our second Easter wreath is a little more grown-up and we’d recommend that parents take charge if working with kids. There’s a lot of room for variation though, so go wild!

What you need:

Materials for making an Easter bunny wreath - a metal hoop, bunny ears and white paper pom poms

How to assemble:

  1. Remove the pom poms from the garland – you could also make this with your own homemade wool pom poms, but we loved the squishy delicateness of these paper honeycomb pom poms.
  2. Secure the bunny ear headband to the top of the gold hoop, using thread, wire or a hot glue gun (be extra careful if you use the latter!)

3. Starting near the bunny ears, attach the pom poms around the uncovered parts of the gold hoop. Use a hot glue gun for speed, or a needle and thread going through the soft tissue to secure them.

4. The loop means you’ve already got an easy spot for hanging, or you can attach some ribbon if you’re after more of a drop.

And that’s it! Easy!

Easter wreaths might just be the next big thing – if you’ve made an Easter wreath or Easter tree this year we’d love to see how you’ve put your own twist on it!
