Colorful, modern, elegant, and fun. This Kate Spade Inspired Easter Wreath can be easily made with a little time and Easter inspiration. Materials used in the wreath cost me less than $15 total however the result looks far more expensive.
Kate Spade Inspired Easter Wreath
- Styrofoam wreath form
- Plastic Easter Eggs – large and small sized
- Matte white spray paint
- Acrylic paints in assorted colors – colors used in this tutorial are Martha Stewart Mother of Pearl,Martha Stewart Florentine Gold, Folk Art in Citrus Green, Folk Art Antique Gold, Craft Smart Pool Blue (Michael’s Crafts store brand), and Craft Smart Paint Pen in Black
- Tissue paper – I purchased this at Target, it was on clearance for $4.98 in store
- Mod Podge Matte
- Wax paper
- Hot glue gun with sticks
- Sawtooth and small nails
Open Easter eggs and spread onto a surface for spray painting. The surface I chose was a black trash bag that had been pulled over the lid of a plastic pin, this allowed the eggs to be on a flat surface and stable enough to move. Repeat this process with the wreath form.
Spray paint until the eggs are mostly covered and look pretty much all white. Allow to dry for one hour.
Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to eggs using a brush. The coat should feel a little bit tacky to the touch.
Wrap pieces of tissue paper on eggs with fingers, smoothing as best you can.
For eggs with black and white stripes, touch up spots on the eggs with white acryllic paint as needed if coverage with spray paint was not sufficient. Using a black paint marker, paint stripes onto eggs all around, letting a few stripes at a time dry for 4-5 minutes before moving on to the next section. I placed eggs onto the wax paper for balance and control as I was drawing the stripes.
When the wreath has been filled in to your liking place a saw tooth on the back using two small nails and then hot glue over the nails for an extra seal. Wreath can be sprayed with Mod Podge Matte Clear Acrylic Sealer for extra protection from the elements if it will be exposed to the elements.
