Creating a Fabulous Easter Wreath

Aug 17, 2007
Easter is a wonderful time for celebration. It is a time where families gather together and celebrate the miracle of life. During Easter decorations abound as well as pale colored sweets, chocolate candies, and the childhood treasured Easter basket. Easter lilies, bunnies, and eggs symbolize the power of resurrection, fertility, and life. When creating a fabulous Easter wreath, using pastel colors will ensure that the wreath blends well with other decorations. However, it isn't uncommon to find an Easter wreath that is adorned with bright and vivid hues such as emerald green grass that plays backdrop to dazzling fuchsia, brilliant turquoise, and hot pink eggs.

Your first step in creating your Easter wreath will be in determining what type of material and theme you would like to use. You may want a sprig like wreath that is composed of natural vine materials, such as Grapevine or Willow. Or you can purchase a foam wreath, straw wreath, or even use a wire (such as a coat hanger wire) to use as the basis for your wreath frame. Equipped with a hot glue gun, you can basically create your wreath from any of the above materials with certainty that your wreath will be durable and strong.

If you choose a Grapevine, Willow, Straw, or Foam wreath, you can purchase them at your local craft and hobby stores ready to be decorated. Another option is to make your own wreath out of vines that you have collected. You can also purchase various greenery vines from your local nursery or flower shop that will serve as the basis for your wreath. When using natural vines, it is imperative to soak them before using. This allows the vine to become soft, pliable, and easy to bend into the wreath shape. You can simply twist the natural vines into the wreath shape, then let them air dry before adding your embellishments. For wreaths that were pre purchased, you can begin creating your finished Easter wreath by adding your decorations.

One of the best things about being creative is that you can use a host of materials that are available in your immediate environment. You can save decorations, Easter eggs from previous years, etc. and use them for your new Easter wreath. If you don't have any thing saved, then you can purchase plenty of items that are available at dollar stores or department stores. Here, you are in control. You decide what decorations will adorn your wreath. Make sure to use plenty of floral wire, ribbons, and use your hot glue gun to attach other items to the wreath. Here is a suggested listing of items that make great adornments for an Easter wreath.

Pastel colored ribbons
Small stuffed animals (bunnies, chicks, etc.)
Grass used for Easter baskets
Plastic Easter eggs (the type used for filling with candy)
Artificial flowers: Lilies, Baby's Breath,

By using your natural creativity and plenty of imagination, you can create fabulous Easter wreaths.
