I think it was about holiday time when I started seeing cool yarn ball holiday wreaths. They were so adorable. I was thinking I would love to make something for Easter with yarn. I have zero Easter decor so I decided to get a head start. I thought that if the yarn ball wreaths were cute why not make a yarn EGG wreath. You know some projects you do you have a good feeling about at the start. This was not one for me. The wreath didn't really come together for me until the end. I decided to make the wreath with two different sized eggs and four different colors of yarn.
You will need
14" round foam
4 different colors of yarn
4 bags of large size cheap plastic eggs by the dozen
2 bags of small size cheap plastic eggs by the dozen.
Lots of hot glue
I also decided to make the wreath with two different types of yarn eggs. First is your typical yarn ball wrapped hap-hazardly with yarn of choice. Did you know eggs are much harder to wrap than balls? Those plastic guys are slippery. I used hot glue to get it started. I also made a more modern (if that is possible using yarn) egg simply wrapping a single layer of yarn from top to bottom. For this type of egg you start at the top with a little hot glue and glue the end down. Then wrap around adding hot glue here and there to keep the yarn in place.
I secured the eggs as I made them to the foam wreath alternating size, color, and type. In the end I wish I would have gone for a smaller foam circle. As it looks great on the door it is too big to hang on the mirror which is where I wanted it to go. But isn't is super springy and fun and quirky! It has motivated me to work on the rest of the Easter stuff.
