So, every year my daughter goes to a few Easter egg hunts and every year I just add the eggs she brings home to all of the others that we have collected. I think I may have some hoarding tendencies. I always figured that I could use them for something other than just hiding them around the house for Kinsley to find. Since Easter is only a month away I was trying to come up with crafts I could use them for. That is when I thought about making some type of wreath. I didn’t want to do the normal plastic egg wreaths I have seen on the internet though; I wanted to do something different. Then the idea of using the eggs to make a bunny wreath came to mind. I knew that I couldn’t use the whole egg , so I only used one half of them. Again, Like most of the other crafts I have made, this cost me nothing. I used things that I already had around the house. However, if you do have to buy the plastic eggs they are pretty cheap.
**NOTE** Make sure to cut the circles wide enough so that about 2 eggs can fit on it. Mine is a little narrow and the eggs hang over the edge . When I picked it up a couple of times I accidentally popped a couple off. I feel that if you made it wide enough so that they don’t hang over, that you wouldn’t be able to pop them off like that.
- 2 circles (1 large and 1 smaller) and 2 ear shaped pieces.
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- Hot Glue Gun
- White and pink paint
Cut your circles and ears. I cut mine out of pizza boxes. I traced the circles onto the cardboard by using round objects found in my house.
Glue the circles together with the larger one on the bottom and the smaller one on top. Then glue the ears onto circle for the head.
Paint it all white and then paint some pink in the middle of the ears.
Start gluing one half of the eggs to the cardboard . I just put the glue around the lip of the egg.
Once you are done gluing the eggs down you could also add some other details like a bow if you want.
