DIY Easter Ribbon Wreath!

I ran across a great supply of novelty Easter ribbon.  So, with Easter on my mind, I created a pretty DIY Easter Ribbon Wreath!

This colorful wreath was created using a sweet collection of Easter ribbons and a whole ton of pastel plastic Easter eggs!  And it is surprisingly easy to make!

For this project I used:

Colorful novelty Easter ribbons
16″ straw wreath form
Lime green mesh ribbon
72 plastic Easter Eggs (from the dollar store)
One silk flower
hot glue

Wrap the  ribbon around the circumference of an egg and cut it the length needed.

Add hot glue along the circumference of the egg and glue the ribbon around it.

Then do this 72 two more times!  Ha!  I used mostly the medium and narrow ribbons to wrap the eggs and saved the widest ribbons for the bow.

What a pretty mess of egg and color!

Use the mesh ribbon to wrap the wreath form.  I used a pin to hold the mesh at the beginning of the wrap and pushed in another pin at the end.

Now the fun part!  Start hot gluing eggs to the wreath form!  Cover the very front first and then start working around the edges.  The eggs don’t go as far as you might think, so cover the important areas first.  Turn the eggs this way and that while gluing them down and be sure to mix up the colors as best as you can.

Take any leftover ribbons (the wide ones and any leftover narrow ones) and wrap the ends together with wire.

Glue the wired end to the top of the wreath and cover the wire with a pretty silk flower.  The final touch is to clip the ribbons at angles at the bottom to neaten them up.

Easter has finally come to chez Suzy! Believe it or not, I had to take down a Christmas wreath to hang this one.  Yep, I know.  Christmas was months ago!  Just shows how organized I am.  The mailman is going to be so proud of me!

  • carrie mikulich March 31, 2014, 8:26 pm

    I like polka dots you can’t go wrong with them. However I really like the Rabbit one. Does the rabbit come in any other colors? Anyway this is a very cute wreath. Happy Easter!

  • shirley mills March 31, 2014, 8:05 pm

    GL everyone

  • Sarah March 31, 2014, 1:28 am

    I LOVE this project! It’s so cute. I’ve never made a wreath before but I’m going to try this.

    Since I’m really wanting to make this I love the Chocolate Bunny Chevron 18 Yd Easter Grosgrain Ribbon Lot you used, or the Hoppity Easter Bunny Ribbon Lot 16 Yd Grosgrain Ribbon Lot is really cute too for Easter.

  • Bridget Allen March 30, 2014, 9:21 pm

    As usual You have rocked it! Love all the pretty ribbons on the wreath. I have some pretty paper scraps that might work for wrapping around the eggs. I’ll have to try it out on a couple. I can’t really afford to buy that much ribbon at this time but I might be able to work something out with other materials I have on hand!
    Thanks for the great idea, Suzy!

  • Sheila March 30, 2014, 8:47 pm

    I love anything purple! I think the Chocolate Bunny’s are cute. The wreath you made is awesome!

  • Marylou March 30, 2014, 9:22 am

    I would absolutely go crazy trying to decide which ones to get. They are great!

  • Sharri March 27, 2014, 3:40 pm

  • K Bain March 27, 2014, 12:00 pm

  • Renee Kunkel March 27, 2014, 9:17 am

    Kinda liked the grouping called GLITTER SPIDERS. But next to those- the neon animal prints- I did take some time hunting through the groupings as well- sadly I couldn’t find any musical themed ones. 🙁 ….Did I miss them?

  • Ingrid March 27, 2014, 12:20 am

    PS–Love your wreath and will be making it for my daughter-in-law !

  • Ingrid March 27, 2014, 12:16 am

    There are too many to choose and say that I have one favorite. They are all beautiful. I have never heard of this website before,thank you for posting it. will probably be visiting in near future.

  • Christy March 26, 2014, 11:30 pm

    I love the MTMG bright tulip frog!

  • Karyle Byrd March 26, 2014, 11:25 pm

    What a cute wreath. All the ribbons are pretty, but I love the chocolate bunny chevron ribbon.

  • Lorrie Koenig March 26, 2014, 11:10 pm

    I loved the swiss dot ribbon assortment. Those cute little dots make me smile. Thanks for offering this neat drawing of adorable Easter ribbon. It has been a long winter and I enjoyed seeing your Easter wreath also.

  • Terri Hughes March 26, 2014, 10:24 pm

    Love them all, but I would pick the black and white paw print or the red paw print. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Jo March 26, 2014, 10:22 pm

    Love the pink and purple with the tiny dots, all lovely colors

  • Brenda Rowton March 26, 2014, 10:20 pm

    I love the pastels and the the polka dots ribbon. The things I could make out of these ribbons.

  • Delaine March 26, 2014, 9:26 pm

    Your wreath is beautiful! All of the ribbons are very pretty, but I like the Neon Animal Prints the best. Thanks!

  • Susan Jaisle March 26, 2014, 9:15 pm

    I love the Easter ribbons!

  • Melissa R March 26, 2014, 8:59 pm

    Love all of them. There are so many to choose from. I think I like the chevron ribbons best.

  • Norma Cooney March 26, 2014, 8:48 pm

    $9.50 28 yard Pink and Red Valentine’s Day Lot. My fave, untill I found the St Patricks day ribbons. Actually they are all great!

  • Susan March 26, 2014, 8:25 pm

    Bright Tulip Frog if I had to choose just one. I love the polka dot ribbons in pastels for the Easter wreath you’ve shown.

  • Pat Kichinko March 26, 2014, 7:15 pm

    PS: The wreath is awesome! I love the simplicity of wrapping the ribbon around the egg. Simple, yet very effective!

  • Pat Kichinko March 26, 2014, 7:13 pm

    I love the 105 yards of polka dot 7/8″ grosgrain, the 110 yards 7/8″ solid grosgrain, and the Red Paw Print 17 yard ribbon lot. I always end up making many GA Dogs dresses and outfits!!

  • Susan Broughton March 26, 2014, 7:12 pm

    I love ALL ribbons but I think I would like a solid color so it could be used for more than just Easter. I also like the wider ribbon mainly for the same reasoning. So my favorite is the 110 YARDS of Solid 1-1/2 inch Grosgrain Ribbon Lot. I had a hard time deciding between the 110 YARDS of 7/8 inch Solid Grosgrain Ribbon and the one i actually picked. I am still not sure I picked the right one haha

  • TheresaV March 26, 2014, 7:00 pm

    My favorite lot was 189 YARDS of Ribbon – 1 yard of Every Solid and Polka Dot Ribbon.

  • Priscilla Miller March 26, 2014, 6:50 pm

    Chicago Bears one of my favorites. Easter set as well. I love them all. If I could I would like to have them all. Lol

  • Nancy Jamba March 26, 2014, 6:08 pm

    I like so many it’s awfully hard to choose! But for a variety to make the Easter Egg wreatrh I think I would try it with the “Let It Snow Snowman Chevron Christmas 18 yard Ribbon Lot” set. Though that name really is in Easter colors. lol Your wreath is really very nice! You have such an imagination and such creativity! Thanks for this opportunity.

  • Kimberly Reilly March 26, 2014, 5:37 pm

    Solids? Polka Dots? Solids? Polka Dots? Oh, WHY choose when I love them all? My favorite lot is the 189 yards of every kind of ribbon! I have a two-year-old granddaughter and I know how to make some ribbon hair clips from when my daughter was little, but winning the ribbons used in the wreath would let me make a smaller wreath AND make some Easter hair clips for my granddaughter. (Thanks for the opportunity.) Win/Win! I’ve got to go back and look at all the ribbon on the Hairbow Supplies, Etc. site… 😀

  • Bridget Haig March 26, 2014, 5:34 pm

    Swiss Dot 3/8 inch Grosgrain Ribbon 🙂

  • Carla March 26, 2014, 4:11 pm

    I like the “fun in the sun” ribbons!

  • Rebecca March 26, 2014, 4:06 pm

    I have not been the Hairbow website before…I do appreciate the way they have “grouped” ribbons to help the consumer. I particularly like the collegiate series. The school where I work is reb and blue, Broncos (like the Denver Broncos)…I would love to see a Bronco ribbon!

  • Angela Conner March 26, 2014, 4:06 pm

    I love the swiss dot ribbon or maybe the chocolate bunny chevron. I just can’t decide… LOL! 🙂

  • Nance March 26, 2014, 4:04 pm

    Really, which “one”???
    I am a ribbon nut, so anyone any time, in any amount.
    Even snippets.
    Love it all.
    OK IF I had to pick just one, all the colors of the Swiss dot.
    Too too fun!

  • Ahmed March 26, 2014, 4:01 pm

    I looovee the wreath!! Would love to make one myself! Is this giveaway open worldwide???

  • MARTHA March 26, 2014, 3:59 pm

    Grosgrain ribbon in solid is my choice…

    • Patti Bell March 26, 2014, 4:17 pm
