I love making wreaths because they are a simple, affordable craft project that pretty much anyone can do. This easy Easter wreath idea is no exception- it’s a simple craft that takes just a few supplies—including an embroidery hoop! I noticed embroidery hoop crafts start to pop up a few years ago, and I totally get why…they are so cute.
To me, the Easter season is all about simplicity and gratitude (and Jesus of course!). I wanted to reflect the beauty of the holiday by keeping this wreath simple—lots of room to breathe, if you will. I’ll call it a minimalist-ish craft. Take 15 minutes out of your day to create this and celebrate the season!
These can all be found at your local craft store (I purchased everything at Hobby Lobby!) but you can also purchase off Amazon via my affiliate link below at no additional cost.
- large embroidery hoop
- foam Easter eggs
- hot glue gun + sticks
- hot glue gun finger caps (highly, highly recommend!)
- ribbon of your choice
Assemble the Wreath
Putting this together is so easy! I toyed around with the idea of painting or staining the embroidery hoop, but in the end, I decided to embrace the natural wood. For the record, I think this in a pastel mint would be super cute.
Take your wreath, and cover a section with moss. You can do as much or as little as you like, but I kept it simple and just did the lower left “corner”. Use the hot glue to glue the moss to the hoop—make sure you cover the outside, inside and bottom.
This is where those hot glue finger caps come in handy! I feel like I am always raving about them, but that’s because life before them was so painful. #neverforget Use them to press the moss down into the glue so it stays put.
Once your moss is glued down, take your eggs and come up with how you want them to be laid out. I laid everything out before I started gluing them down to decide my final pattern, then snapped a quick pic with my iphone to have a guide.
It’s important to use foam eggs for this project, because they are light enough to be bound with hot glue. Each egg was either glued to the moss on the hoop, to another egg, or both. Hot glue is the perfect medium for this project because it dries so fast. Simply apply a generous amount of hot glue, place the egg and hold it in place for about 15 seconds.
Once your eggs are glued in place, you can hang the wreath as is, or add a ribbon like I did. Burlap could also look cute on this, but I went with a simple pink ribbon.
I’m pretty terrible at tying bows, but perhaps having a daughter will give me a crash course at some point. One thing I do to help it look a tiny bit better is I use hot glue to secure the bow once I get it even.
And that’s it! 15 minutes later you have an embroidery hoop wreath idea that is the perfect simple Easter wreath DIY.
