Make Easter Decorations from Old Wreaths

March 25th, 2013

Create an amazing Easter atmosphere for your home by making your own Easter decorations using your old Christmas wreaths.

Repurposing your old wreaths saves you money and gives you a new decoration for your home. Here are three quick and easy decorations to help you save time, especially during this busy holiday. Before you get started, though, make sure that the wreath you’ll be using can be altered.

Decorating your wreath for Easter is easy and takes about an hour or so. All you need are plastic eggs in pastel colors, hot glue, and colorful ribbons.

  1. Spruce up your wreath after taking it out of storage. Yes, it’s old but it’s also artificial, and that means you can easily make it look like new again.
  2. Using the hot glue, add the Easter eggs to your wreath. You can either bunch them up in one section of the wreath or scatter them all over. Use as many eggs as you want. Personally, I like my Easter wreath all covered in those cute, pastel-colored eggs. Tip: For a no-mess project, hold the plastic eggs in place for about ten seconds to let the hot glue dry up.
  3. Use the ribbon to hang the wreath. Most wreaths have their own string to hang them up with, but an Easter wreath looks better with more colors. Using two ribbons of different colors, tie a bow on the wreath for hanging.

Easter Centerpiece

 

You can also use your old small or medium-sized wreaths as a centerpiece for your dining table. This one, however, doesn’t require gluing the eggs to the wreath. For your Easter centerpiece, tie a thick ribbon wire to make a bow on one section of the wreath. Make sure that the ribbon is facing outside. Position your wreath flat on the middle of your dining table. Afterwards, place all your plastic Easter eggs, or a big one, if you have it, in the middle.

This is the perfect centerpiece for your Easter party with family and friends. You can also add a few Easter leaves to go around the centerpiece for that spring effect.

Broken wreaths can also be repurposed as decoration for your Easter basket. Cut your broken wreath into four parts or about 4-6 inches in length. Place these wreath pieces on the bottom of your basket to make a good bedding for your Easter goodies.
