Easter Egg Wreath {tutorial}

I’ve had the idea for this Easter Egg Wreath brewing in my head for several weeks. I was excited because it {mostly} turned out as I was envisioning. You know the famous Faberge Eggs? Well this is my take on that with my Fabricege Eggs {ha!} or we could just call them fabric covered eggs…. fabricege sounds much fancier though! Easter Egg Wreath

This project was great becuase I mostly used up scraps and things I had on hand. To make one you will need:

Plastic Easter Eggs

Yarn

Wire Wreath

Fabric scraps in spring/Easter colors

hot glue

1 yard of 2″ wide ribbon

I started by wrapping my wire wreath in the yarn. I had the yarn on hand, but you could also use ribbon for this step. I wrapped two colors together. Easter Egg wreath

Next, we need to cover the eggs. get the hot glue flowing and cut your fabric into squares about 6×6″. The size will depend on your eggs. Place an egg in the middle {if it has a bump on it where the top and bottom join you want that facing up, which will be the back} Put a dot of glue on both sides, then the top and bottom. Pull the fabric and hold to glue. Now, pull and glue the four corners to the back of the egg and smooth.  I should look something like the egg on the right. It took me a few tries to get it {mostly} wrinkly free. wreath7 wreath10

Once you have a nice pile of eggs, start playing around with design. I ended up placing the eggs end-to-end around… not side-by-side, and adding a egg flower at the bottom.  wreath5

Here is where the wide ribbon comes in. I first glue the four green eggs to the wreath. Then I cut the ribbon and glued on petal at a time around the eggs.  wreath4

Finish the flower with a bright colored egg on top of the leaves. wreath11

Then glue the other eggs around the rest of the wreath as you want. I laid out the pattern first then used hot glue to attach one at a time. wreath12
