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 was a little messy but I love how this wreath came out! I actually 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.
Easter Egg Wreath DIY – How-to 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
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.
