Easter Bunny Egg Wreath

I put together this pretty rainbow wreath a few weeks ago and I'm so excited to share it with you all today! This is the first part of the project that I did with glittery Easter eggs. I shared the other part of this project in my Glittery Easter Egg Topiary last week.

I love how the glitter adds a new dimension to ordinary plastic Easter eggs. Aren't they pretty?

Materials and Supplies

  • Plastic eggs 
  • Wreath form
  • Hot glue gun
  • Mod Podge
  • Ribbon
  • Foam brush
  • Glitter
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Scissors

How To Make This

1. Cover the Easter egg in a fine layer of Mod Podge or other glue.

2. Roll the Easter egg in the glitter. 

I had the best luck by putting the glitter in a disposable bowl. After the first pass, there were some unglittered spots from where my fingers were. Once the eggs dried, I spot-touched them to make the glitter more even. Click here to see more about how I glittered Easter eggs.

3. Gather your wreath and ribbon.

I used about 15 feet of ribbon ( 1 1/2 rolls).

4.Cover the wreath form in ribbon. 

Wrap the ribbon around the wreath. Tuck the ends under the wreath to hold it in place. You can also dab a bit of glue to the ribbon when you get to the end.

5. Lay out your eggs around the wreath.

I tried a few different combinations and decided to go with a pastel rainbow.

6. Hot glue the eggs to the wreath.

I put my eggs right up against each other, but you could also do it with some small gaps.

7. Add a bunny outline.

My wreath had a large opening and needed some interest in the middle, so I added a bunny silhouette to it. I traced the outline of a bunny on scrapbook paper and cut it out. I used the bunnies that you see on either end of my Easter Mantel to trace the outline.

Make a loop with your ribbon that goes over the wreath. Then glue the ends of the loop to the back of the bunny silhouette.

8. Hang the wreath on the door.

I wasn't able to use a wreath hanger with this because of where the eggs sit on the wreath. You could add more ribbon to hang it from. I ended up just resting it on a nail that was already on my door.
