Bright Easter wreath


This bright Easter wreath is easy to make and perfect to brighten up your front door over the holidays.
We chose bright Easter colours for our door wreath, inspired by daffodils and irises - yellow, orange, green and purple.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
1 sheet thick card
1 pipe cleaner
1 egg box
Yellow paint
Crayons
Scraps of yellow, orange, green, purple materials (e.g. Tissue paper, feathers, fabric, paper, beads etc)
Piece of ribbon
Glue

Method
Draw a ring on the piece of card and cut it out. We used a large round dinner plate and a smaller round plate to draw around to make the circle shapes.

Ready to decorate


Decorate the cardboard ring with your crayons. We picked out yellow, orange, purple and green crayons to keep the colour theme.

Cut out 4 cups from your egg carton and then cut petal shapes around the edge of each one. This makes your daffodil flowers.

Egg box cups make great daffodils


Paint the egg box cups with yellow paint

Scrunch some orange tissue paper into the base of the egg carton cup to make the middle of the daffodil flower. We also used some purple sparkly pom poms in the middle of two of the flowers to add some extra colour.

Stick your egg box flowers onto the cardboard ring
Decorate the rest of the wreath by sticking on scraps of coloured paper, material, feathers and beads. We also cut some leaf shapes from some green plastic.

We found some shiny purple beads to stick on


Tie a bow from a ribbon and stick to the bottom of the wreath
Finish the wreath by looping a pipe cleaner through the top and twisting. You can use this to fix to your door e.g. onto a door knocker.
