Turn a plain grapevine wreath into a stunning DIY Easter egg wreath!
They are so festive for spring, don’t you think?
And there are so many styles!
A fun plastic egg wreath that kids would love.
Or one with the muted colors of a vintage-style wreath.
And, for me, one with a little farmhouse flair to it.
I’m so happy with how my DIY Easter egg wreath turned out!
Can you believe this started as a plain grapevine wreath?
Small grapevine wreath
8 foam eggs (affiliate link)
8 eucalyptus branches
2 berry branches
Acrylic paint (Americana Decor in Colonial Blue, Spa Blue, Coral, and Bright Salmon)
If the eggs you use are on picks like these, simply remove the skewers and invert them so you can paint the entire egg at one time.
Apply 2-3 coats as needed for good coverage.
Trim each the eucalyptus stems just under where all of the branches come together.
Push the ends of the stems into the grapevine wreath (see arrow).
Space them evenly around the wreath with all of the branches facing the same direction.
Cut small pieces of floral wire (~4″ long).
Pull the longer stems back toward the wreath and wrap them and the wreath together with the wire to keep the stems in place.
Trim off any excess wire and hide it under other eucalyptus stems.
Repeat with all of the long stems.
Now it’s time to add the berry branches.
These branches have several long stems on each branch.
Trim off each stem so that 2-5 clusters of berries are on each stem.
Tuck these branches into the grapevine wreath just as you did with the eucalyptus, evenly spaced around the wreath and with all of the stems facing the same direction.
Wire any unruly stems to the wreath.
Now it’s time to add the eggs.
You can either hot glue the eggs to the wreath or use the floral wire.
Before permanently adding the eggs, first place them on the wreath where you want them to go so that you can space them evenly.
I love the pops of color the berries bring to the eucalyptus stems.
I wired the eggs to the wreath so I can remove them and use the wreath after Easter and add the eggs back in next year!
