Picture Tutorial: DIY Easter Wreath!!

Hi Everyone and Happy Easter! 

I’ve wanted to make an Easter Wreath for the longest time and this year I finally did it!  I purchased a wire frame and used ribbons to attach the sparkly mesh to the frame.  This is a simple, no sew project that can be made by any beginner.


Supplies:

1/2 yard of each color sparkly mesh.  I chose to use 4 different colors.  Pink, Aqua, Lavender, Green.

24 pieces of 1/2″ wide white double faced satin ribbon cut into 10″ sections.

1 roll white wired ribbon for bow

1 12″ wire wreath frame

1 package of glittered Easter Eggs

glue to attach Easter Eggs

a few small rubber bands
1.  Cut the 1/2″ ribbon on the diagonal into 10″ sections.  Tie at intervals around the wire frame. I staggered the ribbons around the frame.  This will create a basket woven effect with the mesh.
2.  Select the first color and finger gather the mesh into sections and secured it to the frame with the pre-tied ribbons.  Tie each ribbon into a knot to secure the mesh.  Continue working your way around the frame with each color mesh until finishing 4 colorful rows.  Pull mesh ends to the back of your frame for a clean finish.  Cut extra mesh and secure with rubber bands.
3.  Nestle the glittered eggs into the mesh around the wreath and glue them into place.


4.  Create a focal bow for your wreath out of wired ribbon.  I used an organza ribbon with satin edges.  I chose a plain white because the rest of the wreath was very colorful.  Wrap the bow ends around your finger tightly and pull down gently to create the curly cues.  
There you have it!  A simple DIY Easter Wreath full of Color and Cheerfulness for the Holiday!  It’s a quick project that requires minimal fabric and supplies.  I hope you give it a try and personalize it to fit your taste and style.

Have a Happy Creative Day!!
