Plastic Egg & Scrap Wood Wreath

diy plastic egg and scrap wood wreath

Spring is on the horizon and Easter is around the corner so I made this super easy scrap wood wreath with plastic eggs for the door.  Of course you could make the wood wreath and fill it with anything but I thought Easter eggs would be a great fit.

It makes a super fun and colorful addition to the door plus it only cost me $4 for the eggs!  I had some green paper gift box filler that I shoved in between the eggs and it works great to fill in the gaps and adds texture.

Below are the step by step instructions to make the plastic egg wreath:

Step 1: Use 1x4 scrap wood to make a square from 2 - 14" pieces and 2 - 7" pieces.  Attach the shorter sides to the long sides using wood glue and 1 1/4" pocket hole screws.

Step 2: Add 1 3/8" x 1/4" flat molding around the edges to create the sides.  Use wood glue and 1 1/4" finish nails.

I love this clever idea... I have so many of those eggs laying around (hahahahaha, no pun intended) that it'd be nice to put them to some good use. :) - Jerusha,
