How to make an Easter Door Wreath

You will need

  • A plain wreath shape – or cut out the centre of a paper plate and use the wide rim.
  • Doilie
  • Spring pictures – I used eggs and chicks but flowers would be fine too. See what you can find in magazines and catalogues.
  • Ribbon
  • A large cake case to use as a nest for chicks (If you only have flowers make it a vase)
  • Some shredded tissue paper
  • Tissue paper or paint to cover the wreath
  • Glue

To make – be as creative as you want – these are suggestions!

  • Start by covering the wreath with paint or paper
  • Add pictures of eggs, chicks and/or flowers
  • If your doilie is the right size cut out the plain centre and add the lace part to the wreath. If not just cut some of the lace part and add around the wreath.
  • Add the ribbon
  • Add the nest/ vase by glueing half the cake case to the wreath. Add the shredded tissue paper and then slightly stick both ends of the cup case to secure (it should be like a pocket).

Sometimes I have cut out wreath shapes from paper plates but when you need to make 50 that can take a while! So when I found that Baker Ross were selling cardboard wreath shapes I was really keen to try them out. As you can see they are dark brown, obviously made of card and come with a hole and some string so they can be displayed at home. A big win! Here’s the link to Baker Ross with all the info about the craft wreaths.

The embellishments are from Hobbycraft (eggs and bunnies) Take the eggs out of the packaging well ahead as they really do smell! The paper hearts and circles are made with a paper punch and the confetti is the biodegradable kind. I cut the bird and ladybird from molliemakes magazine. The Easter greeting is on sugar paper and I did write happy Easter 50 times. Part way through I began to worry that I was spelling Easter incorrectly!

I will definitely be using the craft wreaths for other crafts. Really great find.
