How To Make A DIY Easter Egg Wreath
Making a DIY Easter egg wreath is the perfect project for rainy days or when you have spring fever. We use eggs from our rainbow layers to do our wreaths, if you don’t have chickens you can check with local farms, or dye the eggs to make the colors you want.
We like to gather the ladies of the family around the table in the kitchen on an early spring day once the hens have started laying again and spend the afternoon chatting and blowing eggs together before we start building these beautiful wreaths. It’s a wonderful way to spend the afternoon with family or friends with lots of laughter and good conversations. Like with any project this project is more fun with others, but it can be done by yourself.
What You Need To Make A DIY Easter Egg Wreath:
- Floral Wire or Fishing Line
- Grapevine Base Wreath
- Blown Eggs

DIY Easter Egg Wreath Step 1:
Select your eggs, any kind will do -quail, turkey, chicken- we happened to have Americana/easter eggers so we used their eggs. Just be mindful of the fact that the small of an egg you use the more you will need to fill the wreath.

Use floral wire or fishing line to attach the eggs to a grapevine wreath base. Don’t pull too tight or you will crack the eggs. You can use grapevine branches or other bendable vines to fill in gaps and cover the wire. I recommend doing one batch around the outside of the wreath and then go around again adding on the inside to fill in the blanks. When you are done with the egg wreath loop a ribbon around one part and use it to hang your new wreath.
Tips For Creating A DIY Easter Egg Wreath
- Be really careful while you attach the eggs to the wreath base, they are very fragile and crack easily. It may be easier to have someone gently hold the eggs and wreath base still while you attach the egg.
- Alternately instead of fishing line or wire use a hot glue gun to attach the eggs.
- Want to skip the fragile eggs? Use faux or plastic Easter eggs to create a DIY egg wreath.
