Cut a 12″ circle using a plate as a template, make a mark 2″ in and draw another circle and then cut with a sharp knife. It does not have to perfect. You can use a dinner and salad plate for template. Then tie a small piece of ribbon at the top for a hanger and make two pen marks where you don’t want to glue eggs.

The next step is to hot glue your eggs, butts together starting from one pen mark and going to the next. This is pretty simple, you can make a pattern or not.

It takes about 48 eggs to make it nice and full. You can also use the little small ones to make it fuller or the really large ones to make a BIG wreath.

Before adding the second layer of eggs, hot glue some grass in between the eggs. It just takes care of a few of the empty spaces and makes it look fuller.
