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 mostly Dollar Tree supplies. The paint I bought at Walmart and the wire I purchased on Amazon.

This wreath is easy to make. Painting the eggs was a little messy but I love how this wreath came out! I also painted a few extra eggs to use as vase filler.

As a finishing touch, I used wire ribbon 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 or with a few floral accents.

Check out the steps and video below to learn how to make this fun spring wreath.

Painting the Eggs for Your Easter Egg Wreath

You’ll need 12 large (3-inch) plastic eggs. Separate the top and bottom to make them easier to paint.

Note: I used plastic Easter eggs. You will see a seam. This didn’t bother me but feel free to use wood or plaster of paris eggs if you prefer a more seamless look.

For paint, I used white chalk paint mixed with a drop or two of acrylic paint to make pastel colors.

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.

How to Assemble The Wreath

Once dry, 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.

Use wire to wire the two wreaths together (shown below). Securing with wire on four sides… top, bottom, left, and right.

    Do you have a tutorial on the bow? Or did you purchase it already made? Thank you!

    Thanks for sharing this cute wreath idea. I love the version I created based on your tutorial. I glued wide, wire-edged ribbon to the bottom wreath form to give the moss something to stick to, then interspersed dollar tree carrots amongst the eggs for more color and visual interest. Finally, I hung it in tandem with a bunny/Easter egg sign I found at dollar tree.

      Hi Connie, such a great idea to add the carrots! Dollar Tree is always coming out with new things and I love this year’s spring selection. Glad you enjoyed the tutorial. Happy Easter!

    Quick question. The dollar tree wreath forms do not fit together to fully enclose eggs. Is this ok? Just using wire will hold the in?

      Hi Bitsy! The two wire forms do not fully come together on the sides. The wire holds everything together.
