Easter Wreath

This is a great project to do with kids.

Supplies needed:
  • Approx. 48 regular sized plastic eggs
  • Easter grass
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Coordinating Ribbon
  • Cardboard ring
  • Pencil
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
First you will need to get your ring cut from a card board box. I made the outside circle approx. 12in. in diameter, and the middle ring 8 in.
Next I alternated colors put a smudge of glue on the cardboard and placed an egg with the big end on the inside. And continued this around the outside edge.For the inside edge I put glue on the card board, and on the egg that the new egg would be touching with the big ends facing each other, and continued all the way around.Now glue the remaining eggs on top of the other eggs and kind of fill in the gaps. Don't worry if there are holes this is where you'll place the grass.
Place some glue in where a hole is and using the butt of the pencil (eraser end) push the grass into the gaps. Continue on until there are no gaps remaining. When finished trim around the outside edge of the grass using the scissors.
Make a hanger with the piper cleaner and glue on the back.
(I am also going to make a bow to put on the top middle, but we had forgot to purchase them.)
