What Can I Use for The Wreath Base?
The embroidery hoop is a great affordable option but if you can't find them cheaply at your dollar store check out the ideas below instead.
- Grapevine wreath frame
- Styrofoam wreath form
- Old wire hanger formed into a circle
- Piece of cardboard cut into a wreath shape
- Metal wreath frames from past projects
- Hula hoop or similar round item that has been cut to size
- Pool noodles cut and taped together at the end
What Else Could I Wrap the Wreath With?
I found this super fuzzy thick yarn at my local dollar store for only $1 per skein. It worked great for this project to add a fluffy layer around the wreath, but isn't the only option. Below are some other ideas you could consider adding to your wreath.
- Thick white ribbon.
- Strips of old white t-shirts.
- Felt cut into strips and braided together.
- Scrap fabric in Easter colors or themes.
- Mesh puffs stretched around the form.
You just need to consider what will cover the base wreath form and create a solid base. I used white because it popped against the yellow feathers best, but you can make this in any color you prefer.
How Can I Display This Easter Wreath?
It's perfect for hanging on your front door, but if you are worried about rain damaging the yarn and feathers, it would be best to bring inside. I have pinned them to the doors leading into different rooms or bedrooms. You could even add this on your mantle as a centerpiece.
- Wooden embroidery hoop
- Yellow craft feathers
- Thick white yarn or ribbon
- Googly eyes
- Orange felt
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
How to Make a Chicken Wreath
Secure the end of your yarn or ribbon to the hoop with hot glue, then wrap around the hoop gluing as needed to secure. Make sure the yarn is tightly wrapped covering all of the base.
On the ends of the feathers, add a dot of glue, then press them to the bottom back of the hoop to secure. Add additional glue over the ends to hold into place if needed.
Once the feathers have dried and are secure, glue a pair of googly eyes onto the feathers about ¾ of the way up from the hoop edge.
Cut a small triangle of orange felt for the beak then glue in place below the eyes on the feathers.
Add a hanger to the back of the wreath and display!
