March 2022 – The Easter holidays are just around the corner and the smell of freshly baked goodies will soon be wafting out from homes. A marvellous Easter tradition, in addition to painting eggs and baking ‘potica’ (a sweet yeasted bread), is making an Easter wreath.

Easter is a colourful holiday, characterised by pastel colours, blossoming flowers, colourful Easter cakes and traditional delicacies, such as traditional walnut ‘potica’ and Easter ham. This spring, decorate your home in the Easter spirit and make your own Easter wreath, to hang on the door or place on a table rich with Easter goodies.

A colourful Easter wreath

Celebrate Easter with a colourful Easter wreath decorated with colourful Easter eggs.


You will need:

Use a bare wreath, without ornaments, as the base. It can be intertwined with different branches or straw. In addition to the basic wreath, the DIY shop should supply white plastic eggs. The chosen paints for decorating and colouring the Easter eggs should correspond to the material of the eggs.  This will avoid the paint sticking to the surface. You can also choose to decorate with crepe paper, colourful tissues, glitter, etc. If you decide to use this type of material, you will also need a suitable adhesive to stick it to the surface. We recommend Neostik UNIVERSAL TRANSPARENT adhesive.


Before continuing to decorate your colourful Easter wreath, ensure the painted and decorated eggs have completely dried. This will avoid damaging or smearing the applied paint before attaching the eggs to the wreath. Once the paint or glued material has dried, the colourful eggs can be attached to the wreath using Neostik UNIVERSAL TRANSPARENT adhesive.

An Easter wreath from natural materials

It is also possible to use natural materials for a more sustainable wreath.


You will need:


Gather twigs for the base of the wreath from a nearby forest. Ensure the branches are pliable enough to round them into a wreath. For additional decoration and a more natural look, pick up some moss or spruce twigs. This will also add some colour. Once you have woven the wreath from the twigs, use Neostik UNIVERSAL TRANSPARENT adhesive to stick the dried moss.


Then stick the wooden eggs onto the wreath in the arrangement of your choice. Once the glue has dried, you can add a bow to the wreath made from the string. It will look particularly elegant at the bottom or top of your wreath. And at the end, you can add a spring flower to the wreath for a splash of colour.


An Easter wreath with an Easter bunny

Make a very special Easter wreath to welcome the spring and upcoming holidays.


You will need:

Wrap the entire surface of the round plastic or styrofoam wreath base with string or ribbon, gluing it to the base using Neostik UNIVERSAL TRANSPARENT adhesive. Once the glue has dried, you can start decorating the Easter wreath. First, decide how you will arrange the decorative elements, then start gluing them to the surface of the wreath. You will need Neostik UNIVERSAL TRANSPARENT adhesive to attach decorations such as eggs, flowers and the Easter bunny. You can complete the design with a colourful ribbon at the top of the Easter wreath, which will provide a lovely frame the overall look.
