DIY: An Eggy Easter Wreath

Many people let their doors do the talking during the holidays. While I don't mark every Hallmark moment with a wreath, I do find the Easter season to be a worthy contender. This year I thought I'd whip up my own door décor with a little help from my pals glitter, glue, and ribbon.

To see how to craft your own wreath, just


Supplies you will need:

  • Styrofoam eggs
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Fine glitter
  • Styrofoam wreath
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Butterflies
  • Bamboo skewers or toothpicks
  • Newspaper or mat for workspace


  • First place a toothpick or skewer into the bottom of the egg so your hands won't be covered in glue and glitter.
  • Put some glue in a small bowl and water it down so it's not so thick and easier to spread.
  • Use a paintbrush to apply the watered-down glue to the styrofoam eggs.
  • Shake the glitter and place them in a vase where they can dry.
  • Cover the wreath in a Spring-themed ribbon and hot glue it along the way to keep it in place.
  • Instead of cutting the ribbon off at the end, leave about eight to 10 inches at the end so you can loop it for hanging purposes.
  • When the eggs are dry, hot glue them onto the wreath alternating the bottom and top.
  • Make a large bow for the top of the wreath and hot glue it where you see fit.
  • Pop some butterflies around the eggs for an added Spring look.
  • Hang it and have a look!
