Yarn Egg Wreath

Every holiday I attempt to make a wreath to hang over our mantel or on our door and then life comes along and re-prioritizes my life. Last year, I saw a wreath and though it was easy enough to make. Trisha @ The Sweet Survival made one with yarn and it turned out so adorable. I wanted to scale it down a little and not make it so full so I took my own spin on it and I like the outcome.  I decided to wrap the wreath with coordinating ribbon that matches the yarn. The eggs I covered are in two sizes.

You will need: 
14" round foam
Ribbon to wrap the foam in
4 different colors of yarn
4-6 large size cheap plastic eggs
8-12 small size cheap plastic eggs
Lots of hot glue



Once you wrap the foam, put a dab of glue on the end of the ribbon to adhere it to the wreath. Take an egg and put a little glue on the top and start wrapping the yarn around the egg. Be careful cause the eggs are slippery. Make sure you cover the egg and don't leave any gaps so the plastic doesn't show. Be creative on how you cover the eggs.


We're in full easter decorating mode and I'll share some more decorations with you in the coming days. I put the Paper Egg Garland up that I made last year.
