Step-by-Step Guide to Making a DIY Easter Wreath

Are you ready to make a fun and beautiful Easter wreath? We’re going to show you exactly how to get started with our step-by-step guide to DIY Easter wreath making!

Preparing for Easter is truly the gateway to spring and we can’t help but feel the excitement of the impending Easter season. In anticipation of the blossoming of the flowers and the brightening of the skies, it’s the perfect time of year to get creative and make some DIY home decor. 

Plus, there are so many options for how to approach Easter. Whether you choose to make a cross wreath as a tribute or create a cute Easter Bunny, chick, carrot, or a general floral wreath, the creative choices are endless.

Making a DIY Easter Wreath starts with our unique wreath making system:

1. Start with a UITC™ board 

Choose The Right Wreath Board For Your Creative Vision

Our wreath boards are made in a variety of shapes and sizes to support whatever your imagination would like to create! Any shape could work for your Easter wreath. Take a look at the full selection:

Step-by-Step Guide to Making a DIY Easter Wreath

The primary materials for your Easter wreath could be mesh or ribbon, or you might choose fabric or another type of material. The main materials that you choose will define the primary texture of your finished wreath. Around here, we are particularly fond of mesh because you can create such full-bodied texture for the base of your wreath.

We have so much mesh to choose from in our online shop that there’s just too much to show here, but we’ve included a few photos of some of the pink mesh that’s currently in stock. Click here to browse the full selection of mesh.

You can also add additional materials like ribbon as well as more accessories and finishing touches in Step 4. Here is just a small sampling of ribbon. Click here to browse the full selection of ribbon.

3. Use Zipties to Attach Your Materials to the Board

Here’s how the whole thing really comes together. Our wreath boards are fitted with strategically placed holes so that you can easily attach your materials to the board using zipties, aka cable ties. Let’s take a look at the process in action:

Here Laurie is using the Large Wreath Board to create a pink Easter bunny wreath. She starts by folding the mesh into the desired shape and then adds it to the board using zipties. You can see that she has preloaded the board with the zipties to speed up the process. Let’s see the next step:

Thanks to the clever positioning of the holes on the board, Laurie can fly through adding her mesh with zipties. The whole wreath really comes together quickly!

4. Add Accessories, Wreath Signs & Finishing Touches

To finish off this particular wreath, Laurie adds a bunny face sign. This is also easy with zipties.

Of course, you could add any type of finishing touches to your wreath! If you didn’t already use ribbon, you could attach some now. And were’ a big fan of wreath signs too!

We have so many Easter accessories in our shop, here is just a small selection:
