Easter Egg Wreath

For thousands of years, the egg has been a symbol of new life - and spring - for people the world over. Craft the time-honored symbol into a wreath for your door, and you've got the perfect way to welcome spring into your home.

Materials

  • 14 plastic pull-apart eggs
  • Puffy paint
  • Egg cartons
  • 2 large heavy-duty paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Green craft foam
  • Twist ties

Instructions

  1. First, decorate 14 plastic pull-apart eggs with puffy paint and let them dry. (Overturned egg cartons make great workstations and drying racks; just set each egg half over a carton cup bottom.)
  2. Cut the rims from the paper plates and glue them together. Glue green craft foam leaves around the ring, leaving 1 1/2 inches between them.
  3. To attach the eggs, tightly wrap twist ties (one for each egg) between the leaves around the paper plate ring, then simply close the egg halves together over the ties.
