No matter the season or holiday, there’s one particular kind of classic, nearly old fashioned craft that we just can’t help adoring- we’re obsessed with the concept of making DIY door wreaths! Now that springtime is every so slowly rolling in, our full attention has turned primarily to Easter themed projects, meaning that we’ve spent a decent amount of time this last week scrolling through the craftiest spots on the Internet in search of inspiration for making some fantastic Easter wreaths this season.
Just in case you love the concept of making awesome DIY Easter wreaths just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials we’ve come across so far in our search!
1. DIY yarn wreath
Even though most of the DIY wreath designs you’ll find out there are actually made with slightly harder materials, did you know that you can also make pretty wreaths out of wrapped and braided yarn too? We’re completely in love with the way Sew Much Ado made three different kinds of yarn wreaths with lovely little greenery details to give each one a subtle spring aesthetic.
2. Dollar store Easter wreath
If you’re going to put in the time and effort it takes to create a DIY Easter wreath from scratch, would you actually much prefer to go all out and really make it look like Easter cheer exploded all across your door? In that case, we think you’ll get a huge kick out of the way 100 Things 2 Do made this fantastically colourful ribbon and egg wreath from awesomely affordable dollar store supplies.
3. Plastic Easter eggs wreath
Each year at Easter, after packing up the kids’ Easter baskets and hiding the eggs for their hunt, do you find yourself with a huge surplus of those plastic Easter eggs that open in the middle and come in all kinds of pastel colours? We know we sure do! That’s part of the reason we thought this plastic egg and sparkling Easter tinsel concept outlined step by step on Creative Homemaking was such a fantastic idea.
4. Natural spring wreath
Maybe you’re in love with the idea of making a wreath around this time of year, but you’d rather go seasonal than holiday specific? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll get along way better with something like this springtime themed burlap and bird’s egg nest outlined step by simple step on Crafts Unleashed.
5. Easy burlap spring wreath
Are you actually a huge fan of the burlap and bird’s eggs idea that we showed you above but you recently did some other kind of string, ribbon, or yarn wrapping project not that long long ago so you’d prefer to use a different technique? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at this scrunched, almost ruffled looking alternative design featured on Duke Manor Farm!
6. Spring tulip wreath
If you’re going to put in the time and effort it takes to make yourself an awesome springtime Easter wreath from scratch, would you actually much prefer to make something almost entirely floral, since fresh spring blossoms are one of your very favourite parts of the season anyways? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how From The Family made this lovely multicoloured door wreath that’s covered in incredibly real looking faux tulips!
7. Sunflower and lady bug wreath
Just in case you’re still thinking about how much you actually loved the idea of working with burlap ribbon because you enjoy its sort of rustic feel, here’s another idea that will help you add a little more colour to your springtime door where guests are greeted! Check out this idea featured on Trendy Tree that uses green and yellow burlap strips to make a lovely sunflower complete with a couple pretty springtime lady bugs.
8. Rainbow peeps wreath
In our house, some of the most popular crafts that our kids take the most interest involve playing with their food. There’s just something about getting unconventional with things they’re used to that really strikes their fancy! That’s why we just knew this wonderfully bright easter wreath made out of marshmallow peeps was going to be a hit. Get the full details for making one of your own on Tried & True!
9. Faux tulip tutorial
Were you a pretty big fan of the basic concept of a springtime tulip door wreath but you’re just not sure you want quite as many flowers on yours as the idea we showed you previously? In that case, we suspect you might get along a little better with this idea from U-Create Crafts, which shows you how to make something similar but a little less busy letting wrapped branches show through between flowers to complement a brown burlap bow.
10. 5-minute dollar store wreath
Are you actually torn between the concept of making a fun dollar store based wreath craft and a lovely floral one for springtime, but either way you just know that you don’t have a whole lot of time to dedicate to the project? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how The Happy Housie created this lovely baby’s breath inspired design that literally only takes five minutes to make despite looking so nice.
11. Pom pom Easter wreath
Perhaps the DIY skills you’re used to using the most are those based in yarn crafts, so you’re always looking for alternative projects that are made from yarn because you have a nice, big stash of leftovers waiting to be used up? In that case, we’re absolutely convinced that you’ll love the way Lil’ Luna did some string wrapping and then surrounded a sweet little felt bunny with handmade yarn pom pom for texture.
12. Easter bunny spring wreath
Have you and your kids always been huge fans of simple glue based crafts, but you love using 3D objects and unconventional things in that process? Then you just might be the perfect people to create something like this embellished bunny wreath from The Happy Housie that features Cadbury Mini Eggs on textured fabric, surrounding a whole porcelain bunny decoration!
13. Curled paper Easter wreath
Maybe your favourite decor pieces are usually those made of paper, so you’re looking for a way to incorporate that into your crafting process, even if it means doing something that’s a little less explicitly Easter themed than some of what you’ve seen so far? In that case, we think you’ll really appreciate the way Fun 365 created this stunning curled paper wreath and kept the Easter element present in their colour choices by chooses seasonal shades for their cut pieces!
14. Fluffy Easter bunny wreath
In our house, the Easter Bunny is absolutely the most popular part of the whole springtime season for our kids. The idea of a cute, fluffy bunny coming to visit them positively fills them with glee and, to be honest, we can’t blame them! That’s why we thought they’d get such a kick out of the way Busy Creating Memories used faux fur to create a fuzzy bunny door wreath, complete with little ears and paws. We made this one last spring and we were correct; it was a huge hit!
15. Jewel toned Easter wreath
If you’re going to hang a lovely DIY piece in your home, would you actually prefer to create something a little more mod or chic looking so that it blends in a little better with the overall decor scheme in the rest of your home? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how A Home for Design made this pretty spring, eggs, and branch themed door wreath that’s painted and chosen entirely in bright jewel tones, just to contrast a bit with the emphasis on pastels around this time of year.
