I needed an Easter Wreath for my front door and after seeing how someone had made one with fun fur, I thought I would give it a try as well.
Of course I had a very different vision in mind, and ended up with a pink creation with hanging eggs.
So to get this project started, I first went to Michael’s and picked up a 12 inch wreath form, 2 packages of Lion Brand Yarn Fun Fur in Pink (I had to make a second trip for package number 2), and a package of 18 Small Egg Ornaments. Of course I used a Michaels coupon and some of the items were on sale. I also found a piece of pink ribbon I had, and would use that as the hanger for the wreath. The final cost was around $15.00, which is a lot cheaper than buying a finished product in most cases.
So here is what you need to Make Your Own Easter Wreath:
To start making the wreath, I first stapled the egg ornaments all around the wreath form.
I then began to wrap the Fun Fur. There are two ways that you can do this, either cut strips and then tie them as you go around that way you don’t have the large package of yarn that you will have to keep wrapping.
Or you can keep the package in tact and just keep wrapping it around. Either way you need to wrap the Fun Fur close together so the green of the form does not show through. In addition, you will wrap the Fun Fur around the staples, that way you don’t see them, and the ornaments stay in place.
You can either wrap the ornaments so that they hang, or lay the ornament’s string flat across the top of the wreath and wrap the Fun Fur over it until the ornament is flush with the top. I did a little of both.
To finish, I tied the end of the ribbon and looped and pulled through at the top to make a hanger. I then hung it up.
