Easter Wreaths

I wanted to make an Easter wreath for my front door this year. After all, the state of your front door can really impact the impression the rest of your house gives to visitors and passers-by. I was looking for some ideas on the web and came across some fantastic Easter wreaths. The problem is that now I can’t decide which one I want to make. Here are the 5 which made  my final short list. Which one would you choose?

Easter Wreaths

Easter egg wreath

Easter-egg-WreathI loved this Easter Egg Wreath(I found it on Amazon) because the eggs look good enough to eat. Actually, I thought they were edible until I saw a close-up picture of the wreath. I was originally looking for an Easter wreath I could make, but this one made me think again, after all, all I’d have to do is pop it on the door. My door is white so this wreath will brighten it up wonderfully.

Easter wreath with Easter bunny

Easter-Wreath-with-BunnyThis one is cute, not only because of the beautiful colours of flowers/eggs you can see in the background. I think of all the Easter wreaths I looked at, I was mostly attracted to this one because of the Easter bunny hat and booties that stand out to greet your guest before they knock on the door. This Wreath with bunny will make your door stand out in the neighbourhood this Easter. I live near the road, so the only thing I’m worried about if is I’ll be able to keep those pristine, white ears clean so I could re-use it again next year.

Grapevine Easter wreath

This Grapevine Easter wreath is beautiful because for me, it’s reminiscent of Christmas. I think it’s the shades of greens and blues that make that mixture so festive. I have a feeling this Easter wreath will last for years and years. I’ve got a similar Christmas wreath for my front door which I’ve had for 6 years and it still looks brand new. After all, holiday wreaths are only used for approximately 2-weeks periods, aren’t they? This wreath is definitely up there in my top 5 list!

Cross Easter wreaths

This Cross Easter wreath will obviously only appeal to believers in Christ. Isn’t it so beautiful? Regardless of your religious inclinations, you have to admit that this is such a beautiful, sweet Easter wreath. It looks especially good against the red door. I chose this one because it’s so simple, yet says so much.  I love it.

Wispy Forsythia Easter wreath

This wispy Forsythia Easter wreath works on most door colours and surfaces. The beauty of it is that you can see straight through the wisps and it doesn’t take up too much solid space. For the minimalist, this wreath is probably the best choice. It’s simple, yet impacting. The yellow forsythias are perfect for this time of year.

So which one of these wreaths is your favourite? Which one would you love to have displayed on your front door? On second thoughts, I think I’m going to order one of the forsythia ones. I love the Easter bunnies, but I couldn’t keep them  clean for long, especially when it rains (which it does a lot around here).

    I probably prefer the easter egg wreath. It is really cute and so attractive among the other four.

    Easter baskets do not seem to be as common in the UK as they do in the US. However if I was making up an Easter basket for children I would out some crayons, coloring pages, sweets, and chocolate. For little girls I would put some hair accessories like clips, hairbands and for little boys toy cars or trucks.

    Speaking of religious significance, I’ve got to to say that, if you take away the bright colors, the Forsythia Wreath is sort of constructed like the crown of thorns they made Jesus wear (maybe it’s just me).

    I like the Easter cross best because I feel we forget the significance of Easter.

    I just made one of these Easter egg wreathes last week. I bought a circle cut out at the local craft store for like $6 or $8 though. It turned out great but I could have used a little more imagination and saved some money creating the background armature to glue the plastic eggs on to. I am going to try one of these other ones you have, they all look so cute.

      I was looking for one to make as well, Angie. However, when I found these ones I thought it’d be better to be lazy and just purchase one instead. Some of these look hand-made, so I can cheat :-)

    I like the forsythia one. I’m really enjoying the articles in this blog by the way, interior decorating is one of my passions (although as I mentioned in my last comment I have a tiny studio flat and it’s so cluttered already that I can’t justify decorating it any more than it is!)

    I like the idea of the Cross Easter Wreath, it would make a nice Easter present for my Grandparents who like handmade decorative things like that! Thanks for the idea.

    I love the Cross Easter wreath, Anne :) I’m Catholic and we always have this kind of wreath on our door during the Lenten season.
