Spring is on the horizon and Easter is around the corner so I made this super easy scrap wood wreath with plastic eggs for the front door. You could make this wood wreath and fill it with anything but I thought Easter eggs were fitting for this season.
A DIY tutorial to make an Easter wreath using plastic eggs and scrap wood. Create this fun and simple Spring wreath with eggs!
The bright plastic eggs make a super fun and colorful addition to the door plus it only cost me $4! I already had the scrap wood on hand and the bits of shredded green paper filler. The paper shreds add great texture and fill in the gaps between the eggs.
Below are the step by step instructions to make the plastic egg wreath. The overall dimensions of this wreath are 14 1/2″ x 14 1/2″.
- 1×4 scrap wood pieces (2 @ 14″, 2 @ 7″)
- 1 3/8″ x 1/4″ flat molding (about 8′ total)
- pocket hole jig
- 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws
- miter saw
- wood glue
- nail gun
- 1″ finish nails
- plastic Easter eggs
- hot glue gun & glue
- green shredded paper filler (or easter grass)
- hanging wire
Step 1: Use 1×4 scrap wood to make a square from 2 – 14″ pieces and 2 – 7″ pieces. Attach the shorter sides to the long sides using wood glue and 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws.
Step 2: Add 1 3/8″ x 1/4″ flat molding around the edges to create the sides. Use wood glue and 1 1/4″ finish nails.
Step 3: Hot glue plastic eggs in place.
Step 4: Shove easter grass filler in between the eggs. It should be tight enough to stay put but you could secure with hot glue.
Step 5: Add a hanging wire to the back. Staple ribbon at the back corners and tie in a bow at center.
Use the wire to hang the wreath. Because of the weight of the wreath I don’t recommend hanging the wreath from the ribbon. The ribbon is purely decoration.
