How to make an Easter egg wreath
Wreaths don’t just have to be for Christmas. This bright Easter version is easy to make and - here's the bit the kids will love - can be filled with chocolatey treats of your choice.
You will need
- 350mm polystyrene wreath
- Selection of coloured polka dot ribbons – three metres of each
- Plastic fillable eggs
- Glue gun
How to make
- Cut each three metre length of ribbon in half by matching the ends and finding the centre.
- Starting on the back of the polystyrene wreath, using a hot glue gun, glue the end of the first length of ribbon to the back of the wreath and pin in place to secure whilst the glue is drying.
- Carefully start to wrap the ribbon around the wreath.
- When you come to the end of the ribbon, finish on the back of the wreath, then glue and pin in place. Choose another ribbon in a different colour and fix to the back of the wreath where the previous ribbon ends.
- Wrap the next ribbon around the wreath, and repeat the process until it's covered all the way around.
- To create a hanging loop, cut a 20 centimetre length from your leftover ribbon and fold it in half with the right side facing out.
- Glue and pin the loop centrally onto the back of the wreath, close to the top. Make sure this is completely dry before trying to hang the wreath.
- To attach the eggs, arrange them roughly where you'd like them, and apply a blob of glue to the wider end of each egg with a glue gun. Press and hold onto the wreath while the glue dries.
- Fill the eggs with treats of your choice!
