Easter Egg Wreath Revisited

Last year I made one of these wreaths for myself. This year I made one for my sweet Mama!  Go HERE to see mine from last year.  It's a bigger wreath form, color blocked and darker shaded eggs.  Mama's is a 14" wreath form, the colors are mingled and I used the lighter colored eggs this time.
Of course I love how mine turned out, but I really like this one too!  Such a fun, fast and easy craft to put together.
I got all my supplies at Walmart back during Valentines.  Don't you hate when they rush one holiday through another one?  Really Walmart? Really? Any who....you will need the following items to recreate this wreath:

1) 14" wreath form (I used straw on this one)
1) package of plastic Easter eggs (42 count)
1) package of basket filler (preferably the paper type and not the plastic type)
Hot glue gun (use the low setting)
Flat head screwdriver (for pushing the filler into the open spaces)
I just picked a color (blue) and used one of each color egg until I got to the blue one again and kept repeating around the wreath form.  Glue, hold, cool and repeat.
When you are finished gluing the eggs to the wreath form, fill in the open spaces with the basket filler.  Add a little glue if necessary, sometimes its a tight enough squeeze you don't need glue.
I think I may make one more for a friend of mine.  These wreaths are so easy to make that you really don't have to think much about it.  What have you made for Easter this year? Leave me a link!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!

What a beautiful wreath! This is the first wreath I've seen using the "grass". I really like it with that. Great job!

The wreaths are both beautiful! The one I prefer is the one with green basket filler, it looks like fresh grass and is more spring-y! :)
