Easter Wreath

Have your children started their Easter break? Want a craft to fill the time? Do you want to decorate for Easter? Well, if you liked the Easter Bunting you'll love this too!

To make the wreath you will need
  • A paper plate or a thick piece of card/cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Pack of coloured card or paper (£1.00 a pack @ Poundland)
  • Glue (50p @ Wilko)
  • String or ribbon (50p @ Wilko)
  • Tape
Craft supplies, including card, paper plate, tape, glue, egg template, pencil, scissors, string

To start if you are using a paper plate cut out the centre. If you are using a piece of card or cardboard you'll need to draw one large circle and a smaller one within it, so it resembles the plate picture.

Next you'll need to draw out your eggs. You can go for all the same size or various sizes. You may want to make a template if you're not confident or don't have the time to draw them freehand.

Cut out the eggs and then using the glue, stick the eggs to the plate, overlapping them slightly as you go.

I started with the larger ones and used the small ones for the last few layers.

When all your eggs are used up turn the wreath over. Cut a piece of your string or ribbon and tie the ends together to make a loop. Tape it on to the back of the wreath.

Hang in pride of place and that's it you're done!
