Easter is a great time to get crafty, so why not make your own Easter wreath?

Step 1

Begin by cutting your foam base. Draw a circle with a 16 inch diameter, and inside the circle draw a smaller circle about 2 inches smaller – the board will mostly be covered so this does not need to be too neat.

 

Cut out the ring, paint it green and leave to dry.

Step 2

Paint the egg cartons in pink, blue, peach and yellow. You will need a few coats to get a vivid, even colour.

 

Leave to dry.

Step 3
Cut different sized leaves out of green card and felt. Put a generous amount of PVA glue all over the foam ring and stick the leaves on in small clusters so they are hanging over the outer and inner edges.
Step 4

Whilst the glue is still wet, stick on the egg cartons, alternating colours until the ring is full.

 

Leave it to dry overnight.

Step 5
Squirt glue into the centre of each egg carton and glue a pom pom into the centre. Dot paper butterflies onto a few of the cartons.
