No longer resigned to Christmas décor, wreaths are now big business all year long. With Easter décor growing in popularity thanks to clever crafter’s and Pinterest addicts, spring-time wreaths are usually covered in fresh seasonal flowers or Easter Eggs and make a beautiful statement piece on your front door.
If you don’t fancy going floral, read on to discover some fantastic alternatives for slightly more unusual, but equally as striking looks. These quirky Easter wreaths are sure to wow your guests!
Don’t fancy exercising your DIY skills too much this Easter? A fabulous alternative is to hang a shabby chic planter filled with bright spring flowers, such as tulips and daffodils, on your door. Hang the planter from a sturdy hook and tie with a large ribbon. We particularly like this Metal Flower Plant Pot from Amazon with pastel colours that are perfect for the season.

Say it with Yarn
When we think of spring we think of natural fabrics, calming colours and inspiration taken straight from nature. This quick and easy tutorial from Very Truly Me is the perfect combination of these aspects – creating a quirky wreath that can be used year after year. Try your own take on this by wrapping a Styrofoam donut in grey yarn and craft spring-time flowers out of felt. Add a sweet bunny for a kitsch and cute Easter look.

A Sweet Treat
If Easter for you is all about indulging in the sweeter things in life, why not create a delicious chocolate egg wreath? Perfect to impress the kids in the family; simply cut skewers into two-inch lengths leaving one end sharp. Then, with a knife, pierce the shells of pastel malted-milk eggs and insert the skewer tips. Then push them into a foam wreath. Top it off with a bright ribbon and voila!

Most probably the quirkiest idea on the list, courtesy of Random Thoughts, is the umbrella wreath. Take a large vintage umbrella and tie the bottom with brightly coloured ribbon, then fill with an abundance of fresh spring flowers. This is definitely a great conversation starter!
