Make this beautiful rustic Easter Egg Wreath using dollar store plastic eggs, two-wire wreath forms, and pastel paint!
I made this farmhouse egg cage wreath for Spring using all Dollar Tree supplies with the exception of wire and paint.
This wreath is really easy to make. Painting the eggs got a little messy but I love how this wreath came out! I actually painted a few extras to use as vase filler since I had the paint already mixed.
I’m also really happy with the colors. I was able to get subtle shades of pink, blue, and cream by mixing a tiny bit of acrylic paint with white chalk paint!
As a finishing touch, I used wire ribbon that I had in my craft bin, from Dollar Tree, to make a bow. Decorate your wreath any way you like. This wreath would look great with a farmhouse Easter sign in the center, with a few floral accents or faux birds around the edges.

Farmhouse-Style Easter Egg Wreath DIY – Video
- Twelve large, 3-inch plastic Easter Eggs (or wood eggs)
- Two 14.25-inch wire wreath rings
- Spanish (dried) floral moss
- White chalk paint
- Acrylic paints (I’m using Laguna, Real Red, Lite Mocha & Coffee Bean )
- An old toothbrush
- Paint brushes
- A paint tray or separate bowls to mix paint
- A bow or other decorations (optional)
Painting the Eggs for Your Easter Egg Wreath
Start by painting 12 large (3-inch) plastic or wood Easter Eggs.
Note: I used plastic Easter eggs. You will see a seam if you use plastic eggs. This didn’t bother me but feel free to use wood or plaster of paris eggs if you prefer a more seamless look.
Separate the top and bottom from each plastic egg to make it easier to paint. You could also keep the eggs pieces together and paint one side at a time.
Next, pour white chalk paint into a bowl or onto a paint tray and mix in a drop or two of acrylic paint to make a pastel color you like. You may need to give your eggs a couple of coats of paint to cover completely.
Note: Choose paint colors to match your decor! Make your eggs all one color, natural whites and browns or paint them vivid colors to best suit your decor.

If you’d like to speckle your eggs, use an old toothbrush to flick brown paint onto them. I added a little water to brown acrylic paint to make a wash. This made it easier to flick paint off of the toothbrush. Assemble your eggs first if you want the speckles to line up.
Last Note: To save time, I speckled my eggs as separate halves. The speckles do not line up perfectly. Assemble your eggs and speckle one side at a time if you like.
How to Assemble Your Wreath
Put all twelve eggs back together. If your plastic eggs pop open easily you may want to glue them together.
Add Spanish moss to the inside of one of the wreath rings and place the eggs on top. Then top with the second wreath ring.
Wire the two wreaths together (shown below) to create a wreath cage. Securing the wire on four sides… top, bottom, left and right.
