Easter Egg Wreath

I bought a ton of those glitter eggs from the Dollar Tree last month when they first put them out and finally got around to making my egg wreath yesterday afternoon.  Love the colors on this, because it looks so springy!!

To make this, you will need:
Eggs (mine came from the dollar store), Wreath Base, Ribbon, Stick Pins, Hot Glue, Scissors and Cricut Cuts if you want to embellish it.

I started out by wrapping my wreath in ribbon and using the stick pins to secure it in place.  This way, if you can see through some of the eggs, you won't just see the base of the wreath.

Next, I removed the eggs from the sticks they were on and layed them out to get an idea of how I would place them on the wreath.

Once I was happy with that, I used hot glue and began to place them around the wreath.  Here is that in progress.

Once all of my eggs were glued on (I used two bags each of the large, medium and small sized eggs from the Dollar Tree), I added some ribbon to the back to make a hanger.  (You could leave the wreath like this if you wanted and it would be fine)

I did want to dress mine up a little more, so I added a premade bunny diecut and used the Cricut Cartridges Jubilee and Designer's Calendar to make a little banner that said Easter.  I hot glued these directly to the wreath.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
