Prepare Your Wreath Craft Materials
We have used cardstock paper for the eggs and bunny features. But you could use regular construction paper if you have this laying around the house.
You can also substitute things like the pom-poms for other crafty decorations when adding features to the wreath.
In the example project, we have colored in all of the Easter egg patterns. You can also shortcut this by printing out ready-made Easter eggs and just gluing these on instead.
Easter Egg Wreath Craft Video Demonstration
Check out the video below for a full walkthrough of the project. This is in a time-lapse format and takes just a few minutes.
Most of the cutting is very easy but the kids may need help tracing out the shapes to start with.
Stage 1 - Cut All Your Wreath Craft Elements
- Step 1- Cut out the inner circle from a paper plate to create the base for your wreath. Keep the offcut circle as we will use this later on.
- Step 2 - Using the cardstock paper, trace the shape of a round bunny head and some ears and cut.
- Step 3 - Also using the cardstock, trace out an egg shape and cut. Then trace around the same egg shape to create multiple eggs. At least 8 depending on the density you want on your Easter Egg wreath.
Stage 2 - Assemble Your Easter Egg Wreath
- Step 4 - We will start with the Bunny face that will sit on top of the wreath. Paste the Googly eyes on the round piece of cardstock, pink pompoms as the nose, draw the mouth of the bunny, and yarn for the whiskers.
- Step 5 - Now the bunny ears. Color the ear lobes a pink color to give them a cute bunny effect and glue in place above the face.
- Step 6 - Next we will color in the Easter eggs. Take as much time as you need with this and go crazy with whatever patterns you would like to see on your wreath. Using the marker you could add a pattern on the cardstock and hand it over to the kids for coloring in.
- Step 7 - Take the offcut from the inner paper plate that was cut out in step 1. Cut this in half to create a semi-circle shape. This will be used as a support for the bunny face. Glue this at the top of the wreath so that the round edge of the semi-circle sticks out the top of the wreath base. Then glue the bunny face onto this area so it sits on top of the wreath base.
- Step 8 - Now we can glue our Easter eggs in place all around the wreath.
- Step 9 - Cut a length of ribbon and tie this up to resemble a bow-tie shape for the bunny. Glue in place just under the bunny face.
Stage 3 - Add the Hanger
- Step 10 - Cut a 12" length of yarn and tape it in place at the back on both sides of the wreath. Make sure there is plenty of slack so the excess can be used to hang up the wreath when complete.
- Step 11 - Your Easter Egg wreath is now ready to be hung up on your front door.
