Decorate your front door with this beautiful Blue & Gold Easter Wreath made with painted faux eggs & moss. So perfect to welcome spring!
I have to tell you- I usually change out my wreath on the front door at least once a month. But because I left at Thanksgiving and didn’t return until nearly the New Year, I never got the chance to decorate for Christmas.
When I came home from my mom’s I expected to see my Thanksgiving wreath still on the front door. But I found that the hubs was sweet enough to have pulled out a couple of the holiday decorations (including the wreath) and tried to make it feel like Christmas.
Since I came home at the end of December- I enjoyed those decorations for just a couple of days & I packed it all away. I threw up some random wreath that I actually don’t even like, vowing that I was going to make some new ones.
Well- all the supplies I bought for a Valentine wreath & a St. Patty’s Day wreath are still sitting in my closet & that wreath I can’t stand was still on my front door when April came rolling on in. Go figure.
So I sent the hubs out with a list – paintable eggs & a few colors of spray paint. After a few hours, I finally have something new on my front door- this Blue & Gold Easter Wreath.
I’m thinking that if I start planning now for May, I might actually get one created before the month changes again.

I started with 4 dozen paintable eggs. They are white & actually look just like real eggs.
I spray painted half of them in brown & the other half in robin’s egg blue. Once dry, I hot glued them randomly in place along with some ribbon onto a grapevine wreath.
Then I used some reindeer moss to fill in the holes.

Once complete I took some gold spray paint & sprayed a little into a little bowl of tin foil so I could get enough to dip into.
Then I dry brushed it on to the eggs – just a couple dabs for each one, not being too careful with placement. That’s it.
I’m sure the neighbors are thinking “geesh- it’s about time”. I can’t tell you just how good it feels to have that little thing off my shoulders & no longer nagging me.
I can sleep again. (yes things like this keep me up at night – what can I say?!)
easter wreaths to make
Here are some commonly asked questions
Can this be made with a different type of wreath form?
I would imagine that you could do it with another wreath form, such as a styrofoam form. I don’t think this would work well with a wire form as you need something to attach the eggs to.
Can this be made with another type of glue?
I would imagine that it is possible. But because it would take a long time for a traditional glue to dry before you could move on to another portion, it wouldn’t be as easy to do.
I also don’t know how sturdy it would be or how long it would hold.
Hot glue not only dries almost instantly, but it will hold for years – even with in-climate weather.
