I can’t believe that tomorrow is the first day of April. I say this all the time, but seriously, this year seems to be flying by! Easter is only three weeks away so I decided to make an easy DIY Easter Wreath to spruce up my front door. It’s super simple just like every other wreath I’ve made. I just don’t have the patience for the tedious projects. This wreath took me about 10-15 minutes to make and cost me less than $20 in materials. The cute Easter wreaths at the stores are usually either too expensive or too small for my taste so I did what any other DIY enthusiast would do and made my own. I seriously don’t remember the last time that I bought a complete wreath from a store.
This wreath uses a grapevine wreath for the base just like my summer wreath, indoor 5 minute wreath and fall wreath. Also, just like some of my other tutorials, I went with garland for the greenery. Using garland for the greenery saves a ton of time and usually saves money too. The garland tends to be less expensive than if you were to buy multiple greenery stems. I found the lambs wool garland at Hobby Lobby on sale for 50% off so it cost me $9.99. You probably won’t guess where I got the cute little eggs….Big Lots! That’s right, if you don’t shop at Big Lots you should really check it out. They have really revamped their stores over the years and they have a great selection of home decor and seasonal items for a fraction of the price that you would pay elsewhere.

Grapevine wreath base
Decorative Easter Eggs (I bought mine at Big Lots)
Scissors or wire cutters
Hot glue gun and glue
Start by laying out the garland on the grapevine wreath. I used an 18″ grapevine wreath so the garland was a tad longer than what I needed. I cut the excess off and used it to fill in bare spots later.
Use floral wire to attach the garland to the grapevine wreath. I cut about 2″ long pieces and wrapped it around a twig to attach the garland as shown below. I did this about every 4-6 inches to make sure that the garland was attached well. Since I made mine to put outside it will have to endure high winds and rain.
Here is what the garland looks like after is has been attached.
After the garland has been attached you can now use hot glue to attach the decorative Easter eggs. As I mentioned, I bought mine at Big Lots. They were the exact color that I wanted and were also speckled which was great. I’ve seen decorative eggs at places like Walmart but the colors are a bit different. It all depends on what look you prefer. I tend to like more neutral/muted colors.
When I glued the eggs down I was intentional not to put the same colors next to each other. I also tried to vary them on the outside of the wreath, the inside and more toward the centerline of the circle.
If you have extra length of garland left over, you can cut it into small pieces (as shown in the top of the photo below) and use those pieces to fill in any of the bare spots.
Finished Easter Wreath Pictures
Here is the finished Easter wreath on my front door. As I mentioned, my front door is exposed to the weather. It isn’t covered by a a roof or awning and doesn’t have a storm door so this thing gets weathered quickly. It definitely needs some new paint (I’ll share that process on a future post).
I love how this Easter wreath turned out. It’s simple just like I wanted but it looks pretty expensive (at least in my opinion). for less than $20 this wreath will add some much needed spring decor to my front stoop. Now only if the spring weather would come!

Do you go all out with Easter decor or do you tend to just go with Spring decor so that you can leave it up longer?
