I have decorations for every holiday, except Easter. It’s strange because Easter is really cute, and I’m a big fan of cute things, so you would think I would have a house full of chicks and bunnies and crosses.
Not so much.
So of course, I had to make something for this year. I really wanted a wreath to hang on our door, but I didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on it. I decided to make it with supplies from Dollar Tree.
DIY Paper Easter Egg Wreath
What You’ll Need:
- Hole punch
What You’ll Do:
Cut out an egg-shaped stencil from a white sheet of cardstock. If you have an egg-shaped cookie cutter, you can use that but my Dollar Tree didn’t carry them. I just freehanded my egg shape and it came out fine.
Cut apart the gift bag. Cut a slit down one edge of the bag, then cut off the bottom of the bag. You can then unfold it. After you do, remove the string handles from the bag.
Trace the egg-shaped stencil on the blank side of the bag and cut out eggs.
Do the same on a piece of purple cardstock.
I made five solid eggs and six from the gift bag, but you will decide what works for your wreath.
From the white cardstock, cut out one large round circle, then cut a smaller circle from the center of it.
Tape (or glue) the eggs to the cardstock circle in whatever order you like.
You can leave it as is, or you can continue with the optional part.
Hole punch at the top two of the eggs (skipping one in between). Thread the gift bag’s handle through the holes and tie it in the back.
You can leave it this way, and it’s so cute.
Or you can make it even cuter with a banner.
Draw a banner on the white cardstock. Write something like “Happy Easter” across it and tape it to the front of the paper Easter egg wreath.
I freehanded the banner and the lettering on the banner, but you could probably print something online if you don’t like your handwriting.
If you’re not feeling super creative, you can purchase something at Dollar Tree instead. There are a ton of Easter decorations there that are so cute — and only $1.
You can also purchase everything you need to fill your Easter baskets too, in case the Easter Bunny asks you for a little help this year.
