wooden eggs easter wreath ♥ how-to


please continue reading for the 'how-to' instructions...

















my inspiration for this wooden wreath came from martha stewart's 'easter egg wreath' and my good friend's 'easter wreath' over at nalle's house... aren't they beautiful? ♥

although i love the fact that they've both used blown out hollow natural eggs, i wanted to make a wreath that would be easy to store and hard-wearing as an outdoor wreath for our front door. i had bought wooden eggs for lucy's easter gift and quickly realized i should have bought more! 14 eggs from lee valley costs $11.90...

i'm really happy with how the wreath turned out - even though they aren't natural eggs, they are made of wood which of course is a natural element. if i grow tired of the wreath, i can always switch the ribbon, stain, paint or wax the eggs or use the eggs in a garland (seeing as the eggs really do look cute with beads between them each).

are you 'into' wreaths? what do you have hanging from your doors, walls or mirrors for easter?

  1. I love the simplicity of the wooden eggs although they would also look beautiful all painted a soft pastel colour or even white. I'm going to have to check out the Lee Valley eggs.

      yes i really love the natural wood of the eggs... but that's the idea, if i get tired of it, i can always stain, paint or wax them to change it up ;)
