My mom has been a huge fan of gifting holiday decor door wreaths to friends and family. With Easter coming up, she had asked me to make her an Easter wreath for my Aunt, who is very festive during all holiday seasons. Here’s a quick DIY tutorial on making an Easter wreath. Now, this isn’t my kind of style to hang in front of my house, but it’s pretty darn cute. I’ll most likely make a few for my mom, and for my sons teacher as an end of the school year gift. I would probably make one in all burlap instead of using deco mesh material for myself. Anywho, let’s get started.
Materials You’ll Need:
-Zip Ties (I always buy mine at the DollarTree or Daiso)
-Plush Easter Bunny/Duck (Optional)
-Hot Glue Gun
- Take your deco mesh material and gather your zip ties near by.
- Pinch the end of the start of the deco mesh, and place it to the desired spot on the wreath, where you plan to begin the start of the “poofs.”
- Take your zip tie and secure the deco mesh within the grapevine wreath.
Note: Decor Mesh is very flexible, and can be shaped very easily to create an easy, fun and full wreath.
Can I also mention, zip ties are AWESOME! I can’t think of any other material that would help secure the
deco mesh any tighter,and easy to use!
Pinch, place, zip tie, cut. Easy! Then repeat!!
4. Create a poof like “popcorn,” shape with the deco mesh and pinch, and zip tie again.
5. Repeat over and over as you go around the entire wreath. Creating something like this:
Be sure to stay towards the outside part of the wreath, which leave space for any additional decorations you’re planning to add.
At this point, this is where you can add all the fun festive details. Having this be an Easter wreath, my mom provided me a few things she purchased at the Dollar Tree including, an Easter Egg fringe garland, easter eggs, and a plush easter yellow duck toy (totally optional!)
6. I wrapped the Easter Egg fringe garland around each of the popcorn “poofs,” covering up the zip ties.
This is what the back of the wreath would look like after wrapping the fringe garland.
7. I then scattered and hot glued a few random easter eggs.
8. (Optional) Add in an Easter Duck or bunny to the middle center of the wreath.
And there you have it! And Easter Wreath! Totally inexpensive to make! I can’t wait to make more for my son’s teacher, and a few Spring florals ones for Mother’s Day! Stay tuned for that!
Happy decorating! Stay tuned for my thrifted Easter projects! I a few coming up next week!
