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
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Selection of coloured polka dot ribbons – three metres of each
  • Plastic fillable eggs
  • Glue gun

How to make

  1. Cut each three metre length of ribbon in half by matching the ends and finding the centre.
  2. 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.
  3. Carefully start to wrap the ribbon around the wreath.
  4. 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.
  5. Wrap the next ribbon around the wreath, and repeat the process until it's covered all the way around.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Fill the eggs with treats of your choice!
