DIY Decorated Easter Wreaths

DIY Wreath

It’s amazing how a wreath can transform an entryway, mantel or wall. I’ve really started experimenting with wreathmaking over the last 2-3 years, and I can promise you it’s very simple to assemble your own wreath—not to mention rewarding. Here are some DIY Easter wreaths that are sure to spruce up your home for spring.

Traditional Easter Wreath

The first is a traditional Easter wreath complete with faux gilded eggs. I purchased all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby.

You’ll need:

  • Grapevine wreaths
  • Flowers and greens
  • Eggs
  • Ribbon
  • Glue gun & glue sticks
  • Wire cutter
  • Green floral wire

I started by wiring greenery to the grapevine with floral wire. These particular greens had three strands that I separated with floral wire, arranged on the grape vine wreath, and secured to the wreath with floral wire. Basically, I just arranged it based on what looked the best and most balanced.

I then added the blue and pink gilded eggs in clusters of three and secured it to the greens with a hot glue gun, arranged according to preference. Choosing clusters of two pink, one blue, and then two blue, one pink, created a balanced color pattern.  I completed the wreath with a colorful pink satin and gold polka dotted ribbon.

Floral Wreath

I also used a grapevine wreath from Hobby Lobby for this wreath and added a pink silk hydrangea, rose, and two ranunculus. I actually borrowed a bow from one of my fall wreaths, which cut down on a little time and money.

You’ll need:

  • Grapevine wreath
  • Silk flowers of your choice
  • Green floral wire
  • Glue gun & glue stick
  • Ribbon for bow

I added the bows with green floral wire so they’re pretty easy to transfer. Some of the larger blooms such as roses & hydrangeas can be a little spendy—that’s one of the reasons why I don’t fill an entire wreath with the blooms. Personally, I also think it can be a bit of overkill and I like a more subtle spray of flowers.

Succulents Wreath

Finally, for my third wreath I experimented with succulents.  To be honest, succulents have grown on me. I definitely lean more traditional than modern and have had to get used to the look, but after a few seasons of watching them crop up on Pinterest and all over nurseries and craft stores, I’m all in!

You’ll need:

  • Wire wreath form
  • Succulents of your choice
  • Glue gun and glue stick
  • Floral wire (also used moss covered floral wire)
  • Twine for hanging wreath

For this wreath, I chose a wire wreath form and added peat moss to it with a hot glue gun. I then added succulents of my choice and hung it with a bit of twine. My only concern at this point is the peat moss shedding. So far, it’s stayed in place, but if anyone has tips on working with peat moss, I would love to hear them!
