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
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!
