Supplies needed to make your own DIY Easter wreath:

*(A grapevine wreath is used in this tutorial but STYROFOAM and wire wreath forms would also work with some project adjustments.)

Speckled-Egg-DIY-Easter-Wreath-Crafts-Unleashed-2Begin by painting the eggs. I held them between my fingers, painted all the visible surfaces, set them on a piece of plastic, then touched up the spots where my fingers were.

Speckled-Egg-DIY-Easter-Wreath-Crafts-Unleashed-3For best coverage, apply two coats of paint.

Speckled-Egg-DIY-Easter-Wreath-Crafts-Unleashed-4When the paint is completely dry, begin attaching the eggs to the wreath form with hot glue. I found that it helped to glue the eggs to each other where they touch.

Speckled-Egg-DIY-Easter-Wreath-Crafts-Unleashed-5Once you’ve covered your entire DIY Easter wreath with the painted eggs, brush Mod Podge onto a small section of eggs in a random, speckled pattern.

Speckled-Egg-DIY-Easter-Wreath-Crafts-Unleashed-6Lay a sheet of gold leaf over the glued section. Press gently with fingers to adhere to glue. Repeat with another section until every egg has gold leaf covering it.

Speckled-Egg-DIY-Easter-Wreath-Crafts-Unleashed-7Let your DIY Easter wreath dry overnight. In the morning, gently rub your fingers across the eggs to remove the excess gold leaf.

Speckled-Egg-DIY-Easter-Wreath-Crafts-Unleashed-8After all of the excess gold leaf is removed, your wreath will look like this:
