I made this wreath a few years ago using items found at my local Dollarama. As Easter is just around the corner I thought I’d share this exceeding simple, cheap and fast project.
You’ll need just a few items:
- Wreath form
- Glue gun and glue
- Dollar store Easter eggs in various sizes
- Remove eggs from packaging. The eggs I found had sticks and ribbon attached to the base. I just pulled them out as I didn’t have wire clippers (I’d suggest you clip them off if you can – pulling them out sometimes pulled some of the egg off as well).
- Lay your eggs out around your wreath to ensure you have even spacing.
- Start gluing.
- I wanted a white Styrofoam wreath, but my dollar store only had vine ones. To ensure it wasn’t too noticeable below the eggs I first painted it white.
- I kept the smallest eggs for the end of the project and used them to cover any holes that remained after gluing on the other eggs.
The finished product:
The materials cost about $20, and it only took about an hour to make.
Looks pretty good if I do say so myself – what do you think?
