Are you thinking about Easter decor? In this post, you will learn how to make a cut and adorable Easter wreath that will be perfect for your front door.
I love a good wreath, as they can instantly add a seasonal twist to your plain old front door. Most people associate wreaths with Christmas, but I think you can easily adapt that tradition to suit a wide variety of seasons and holidays. Easter is usually one of the first holidays in spring, so I love working with the bright pastel colors and creating something that differs completely from the darker colors associated with Christmas or even Valentine’s day.
This wreath project should take you about a day to complete because you have to let the string eggs dry overnight! Beyond that, it’s a super easy and breezy way to dress up your front door just in time for Easter.
So grab your wreath and let’s get started!
What You Will Need:
- Leafy wreath
- Embroidery floss
- School glue (Or Elmer’s white glue)
- Container with lid
- Plastic decor eggs (optional)
You can also substitute liquid starch for the school glue and water.

Another economical option is to try your local dollar stores as well!
How To Make String Eggs
Start by making your glue mixture. Mix white glue with water to create a watery paste. I like to use the lid of your container to mix the paste as you will not need a lot.
Then you’re going to blow up the balloons. Your hands will get messy, so you don’t want to be switching between tasks for this!
I then like to feed the embroidery floss through the paste, working it into the paste in a circular pattern to avoid too much twisting. You can also use a foam paint brush to work the thread into the paste.
Start by wrapping one end of the glued floss around the stem of your balloon. It won’t slip around too much thanks to this.
Work the floss around the balloon.
Use the main part of your container to store the glued floss and balloon overnight. In the morning, gently pierce the balloon with a pin and work it away from the floss.
I find the glue mixture is fairly strong, but you don’t want to bend it around too much. I plan on hanging my wreath in a sheltered alcove, but you can use an outdoor sealant if you are concerned about moisture.
Bringing It All Together
Now that you have your string eggs, it’s time to attach them to your wreath. I enjoy using hot glue for this part.
I found that adding a ribbon and some plastic decor eggs add more fun to the wreath. To wrap the ribbon around the wreath, I like to use dots of hot glue on the back end to keep the ribbon in place.
You can also add a craft bunny or a cool sign if you prefer those instead. Simply use hot glue to secure everything together so it’ll stick together while it hangs on your front door.
Pop that Easter wreath on an over-the-door wreath hanger and onto your front door!
I love how fun and cute this Easter wreath turned out. It’s the perfect thing to add a pop of color to your door after a long and miserable winter!
This project is also highly customizable too. You can switch this wreath around completely by changing the leafy wreath into a grapevine wreath, for example. Switch out the color of ribbon or try some glittery eggs for a fresh look as well!
