I really wanted to make a nice Easter wreath for my front door, but I wasn’t sure exactly what to make it with. For a while I toyed with the idea of gluing that plastic Easter Basket grass all over a wreath form…clearly there was something wrong with me, because that stuff is the worst!! I thought fake moss could look nice, and then I came across a roll of fake moss and knew I’d found a winner. This wreath only took about 10 minutes to make! The next time I make one, I’ll get enough eggs to go all the way around the wreath.
12-inch green foam wreath
Three 2.5-inch by 36-inch Moss Rolls
Decorative Easter Eggs (mine were similar to these ornaments, but I cut off the strings)
Matching ribbon (not pictured)
Secure an end of the moss roll to the back of the wreath using floral pins. Don’t wrap the moss too tightly or it will look bunchy.
Continue wrapping, pinning a new roll of moss whenever one runs out.
Once the wreath is covered, check to see if any places need to be pinned for more security. This stuff sheds like crazy!
Put hot glue onto the back of an egg.
Press it firmly onto the wreath, holding it in place for about 15-20 seconds.
Continue gluing eggs in whatever pattern you’d like.
If you want, you can add a bow to the top of the wreath. You can glue it or use floral pins to secure it.
Pin a loop of fabric about 8-inches long onto the back of the wreath (you might want to add or shorten this ribbon depending on where your wreath will be hanging).
That’s it! Easy and it looks very pretty.
Any questions, let me know. Have fun!
