Dollar Tree Easter Craft

Note from Laurie: My friend Cheryl made this Easter craft all using items from the Dollar Tree, and I just love it as a way to fluff up for Spring!  Thank you so much Cheryl for sharing ~ it’s perfect!

I saw an idea over here to use Dollar Tree items for Easter decor, and knew I had to try and make it on my own!

Here's what I used:

  • wreath mold
  • plastic eggs
  • spray paint
  • floral bunches
  • ribbon (any will do, I had plenty laying around)
  • moss
  • hot glue gun

First I spray painted the eggs. It was a rainy day so I used a shipping box we had laying around so the spray paint didn't get everywhere. These needed a few coats.

I put the moss on the wreath mold, then glued on the mini eggs to create the wreath and glued in green moss in between the eggs.

I love the way they turned out!

Next, I worked on the topiaries.  Since I couldn't find a topiary mold, I thought these vases would work out just fine.

I glued on the moss and then started adding the eggs with just a little green moss in between to really pull it together.

Then I snipped up the floral bunches to place around the topiaries, and for a few dollars they make great Easter centerpieces.

So fun! 🙂

Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)

  1. I have a ton of plastic Easter eggs, and it never occurred to me that they could be painted.I just took down the Christmas wreath from our front door, and made a spring wreath to put up. (We still have snow here, so it takes me awhile to get in the “spring” mode.) I’m going to try painting some eggs and add them to my wreath. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. Above you say, “Next, I worked on the topiaries. Since I couldn’t find a topiary mold, I thought these vases would work out just fine.” What do you mean by ‘these vases’? Do not see any vases pictured or described.

  3. I love the wreath, Laurie. Wouldn’t it be adorable if the eggs were a Robin’s egg blue color and you could speckle them by splashing a little light brown paint on them with a paint brush?

  4. Hi, where you buy the green bunnys

  5. Where did you buy the chalky spray paint?
