Using a recycled grapevine wreath from Christmas, I bought 6 packages of different types of eggs from the dollar store. I used my hot glue gun to place the eggs. It only took about 1 hour to do, and the cost was about $8.

Thanks for posting this. I thought this was such a cute idea, I wanted to make one for my family as well. We have tons of plastic eggs and ribbon, so all I needed was the wreath, which I got at our local craft store on sale for 50% off (around $2 after sale).
Don't have an Easter wreath? You can make this simple one with plastic Easter eggs. You can find inexpensive Easter eggs at your local Dollar Tree, 99 cents store (or use any eggs you might already have.)

Getting ahead of the pack... here is an Easter Wreath of plastic eggs. All I did was to hot glue the plastic eggs to a wreath form that I had covered with spanish moss.
After the eggs were set, I poked in Easter "grass" to fill in the holes. I hung a plastic flocked bunny (bank) from the 99 cent store to the middle. Oh, and I got the eggs from Wal-Mart (after Easter the year before) and the 99 cent store.

I love how full it looks. Using different sized eggs looks great! (02/01/2006)
Adorable! I saw one at a shop last year and wanted to make one but didn't know where to begin. Thanks for the info (02/01/2006)
Cute and thank you for sharing your "how to"
with us. Very cute and sweet. (02/01/2006)
Wonderfully colorful idea, GreatGrannyVi. It would look especially welcome in the colorless northeast where I now call home, although I'm currently enjoying the beautiful 'winter' weather of Ventura county. (02/04/2006)
