Materials:

  • Rattan (or twig) wreath
  •  Selection of artificial foliage leaves and flowers
  •  Polystyrene eggs in various sizes
  •  White feathers
  •  Light blue and brown acrylic paint
  •  Turquoise satin ribbon
  •  Glue gun
  •  Scissors
  •  Wire cutters
  •  Pins
  •  Paint brush

Instructions:

  1. Cut the sprigs of artificial foliage and flowers from the stem using wire cutters. It's a good idea to arrange your spray first before attaching it to your wreath. Once you are happy with arrangement add some hot glue to the end of the sprig and then push it into the rattan wreath.
  2. Paint the eggs with blue acrylic paint. When the paint is dry, water down the brown acrylic paint and gently ‘spray’ the eggs by flicking the bristles of the paint brush with your fingernail. This is a messy job, so it’s a good idea to make sure that there is plenty of protective covering around.
    Top tip: To make painting the egg easier and less messy, stick a pin in the bottom of it so it gives you something to hold onto whilst painting.
  3. Arrange the feathers around the spray and attach them in the same way as the sprigs.
  4. Once the eggs are dry, arrange them in the spray and make sure that they are nestling nicely amongst the sprigs of foliage and feathers, and then glue them into place with the glue gun.
  5. To hang the wreath, wrap the ribbon once around the rattan wreath and then tie a big bow.
