Easter Egg Tutu Wreath

You may remember our blog post Christmas Ornament Tutu Wreaths Tutorial. This is very similar to that post. ENJOY and BE CREATIVE! 

Supplies needed
Easter (styrofoam) Eggs
Wire
Tulle
Scissors
Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Measuring Tape
Wire Cutters

Tutu Wreath Tutorial

1. Cut wire with wire cutters at 40" and form into circle shape.
2. Close the circle by twisting the wires together to make a wire wreath.

3. Cut your tulle at 8" long

If you're using by the yard tulle it will be 8" long x 6" wide.
Pick any color tulle you want. I used Yellow, Lime, Orange, Pink, and Turquoise.

You will need about 150 strands of tulle.

4. Grab your tulle by threes
5. Line your tulle up
 6. Tie all three strands of tulle in a double knot around your wire.

7. Continue until you finish 50 or so knots.
 
8. Tie a long piece of tulle around the top of your Tutu Wreath to hang it up.

This is what the back of your Tutu Wreath will look like.


9. Hot Glue some Styrofoam Easter Egss on your Tutu Wreath (optional) and hang up on your front door.

I haven't made a Tutu Wreath since last year for a friends baby shower, so it was fun making this one.

Tutu Wreaths are fantastic for Infant Nuseries, Holidays, and Room Decor. What could you do with a Tutu Wreath?

  4. This is so cute! My son's class did similar ones for Christmas and used a wire hanger (the kind you get from the dry cleaners) and reshaped it to be circle. :)
