An easy-to-make DIY Easter wreath with speckled eggs and natural materials.
Do you ever get that thing where you know you want to make something but you’re just not sure how you want it to look?
That’s what I had with this Easter wreath. I was trying for days to come up with a solid plan without any success. Eventually, I just said…words that are not appropriate for this blog and decided to start work in the hope inspiration would strike.
Armed with my hot glue gun and some bad TV, I started making my DIY Easter wreath. Annnnndddd…
It was a mess. I got twigs everywhere. I ruined several foam eggs along the way. I stabbed myself in the foot stepping on a twig that had fallen and lodged itself vertically in my living room rug (thanks, twig). It took me at least six tries to create something I was happy with.
But it got there in the end. That’s what counts, right?
After I got past the whole “stabbing myself in the foot” thing, the wreath was actually really easy to make. It’s really just a matter of layering foam eggs, artificial moss, twigs, feathers, and jute fibres on top of a grapevine wreath form.

DIY Easter wreath with speckled eggs
- A 12″grapevine wreath
- Foam eggs + acrylic paint. You can save yourself a bit of time by buying premade speckled eggs, but if you want to paint them, I used:
- Jute twine, torn apart with your hands until the fibres are separated
- Twigs and sticks
- A hot glue gun + hot glue sticks
Preparing the eggs:
I began by painting my foam eggs blue, white, and beige using acrylic paint. Once the eggs were dry, I added the speckle effect using the instructions in this tutorial by Molly @ Just a Little Creativity. It’s really easy (if not a little messy).
Creating the Easter wreath
While my eggs were drying, I started work on the wreath itself.
Using my hot glue gun, I glued sticks and twigs to the wreath form at random to give it a little more body. I then glued jute fibres (just jute rope I had torn up by hand) to the bottom 2/3rds of the wreath form.
Next, I used my hot glue gun to glue the speckled eggs, feathers, jute fibres, twigs, and artificial moss on top of the jute fibres.
There’s honestly 0 skill involved in this part – just do whatever you think looks nice. I did find that adding the elements at random (i.e. not in layers, but instead “I’ll put this moss here, then that egg there, then a twig here”) gave the wreath a nice, natural look.
I kept layering the twigs/moss/jute fibres/etc until the wreath was full enough by the very scientific standard of “Looks alright to me”.
And with that, the DIY Easter wreath is finished.
