An Easter wreath with dried flowers and eggs creates the ultimate springlike feeling wherever it's hung. Place the wreath on your front door and give your guests (and yourself!) a warm welcome into yuor home, or hang it on the wall for a cheerful Easter atmosphere in your living room or kitchen. It can also be fun to put your homemade wreath on the dining table as a radiant centrepiece and, for extra atmosphere, add candles.

Once Easter is over, simply remove the fake Easter eggs from the wreath and you'll be able to enjoy it for months to come, thanks to its hardy nature. Read our instructions, grab your supplies and get started on this Easter DIY sooner rather than later!

for a large easter wreath, you will need:

  • Dried flowers and grasses. We used Helipterum (sunflower), gypsophila, solidago, avena (oat), Massasa, limonium and Phalaris (canary grass) 
  • Fake eggs to add to the wreath 
  • Iron wire
  • A round frame (we used a basic wreath made of straw)
  • Ribbon or tape (to hang the wreath)

how to make a large easter wreath

  1. Collect the dried flowers and fake eggs you want to use for the wreath. You can buy dried flowers at the garden centre, the florist or online. Tip: work within a colour scheme. Think about the colours you want to use for your wreath and find the prettiest dried flowers to match.
  2. Stick the dried flowers into the frame one by one or fix them to your frame with fine wire. Also add some fake eggs to the frame in the desired spots. 
  3. Continue doing this until the frame is no longer visible and you are happy with the result. 
  4. Hang the Easter wreath on your front door or in another spot of your choice with the ribbon or tape.
