I had so much fun making this wreath!  Some of my favorite memories from my childhood were about Easter Egg hunts.  I mean – we got into it!  Waiting for the parents to hide eggs all over the back of a wooded hillside and then just tearing out after them like we were caged beasts!  It was so much fun.  So whenever I see a plastic Easter egg – I can’t help but have a little smirk on my face. 

What I started with was this ivy wreath I got on clearance from Ikea for $2.99.  I had gone out and hung it on the door earlier this weekend as a potential spring wreath candidate.  I love how full it is.  And that is what got me thinking about hidden Easter eggs.  (You guys should know by now how random my little brain can be!)

So I went out and got a pack of plastic eggs from the dollar store.  Then I dug into my floral supply stash and got some floral picks out.  My little eggs came with holes in the bottom – which was totally convenient for me.  I just ran the wire through and twisted it to secure.

Then I flipped the wreath over and wired all the eggs on from the back.  I was hoping this would provide the “hidden” look I was going for – and I think it did!

Check out the finished project!  I love it!

I think the ways the little eggs poke out from behind the leaves is just too cute!

I can’t wait to be able to do egg hunts with our little man.  It is so funny the things you start to look forward to once you know you have a little one to prepare them for!

Can you spot all eighteen eggs?  It might take a little while to find all of them!

I think it is the perfect wreath for about $4!  Here is one last shot!

So there you go!  What about you?  Got any Easter decorating going on at your house?  Do you have fun memories of Easter egg hunts from your past?  Planning one for this year?  I wanna know!

It's so cute and really does remind me of an Easter egg hunt. I LOVED those hunts as a kid too. I still do actually ;o)

That is a great idea! It turned out so cute. Some of my best childhood memories are of Easter egg hunts.

Seriously...just $4. Awesome! This adds a bit a fun to the simple ivy wreath.

I found all 18 eggs and I love your wreath.

This is a beautiful wreath. I love how the bright colors pop out behind all of the greenery.

So cute! I think you got the "hidden" effect perfectly. You don't want to hide them too well after all!

Too cute!

You're a genius!

It's amazing how something so simple can be so darn cute. Here all I did here was spend $7 on a Easter wreath from the Christmas Tree Shoppes. Now I feel silly.

That's so cute. I have about a zillion of those eggs from the days when my kids had egg hunts. Great way to use a few.

That is adorable and brilliant!
