PROJECT NOTES
For easier wrapping, make 3” [7.6 cm] balls of yarn of each color for the Styrofoam eggs and a 4” [10 cm] ball of yarn for the wreath. If using a straw wreath, leave the plastic wrap on the wreath for easier wrapping.

Tightly wrap the eggs vertically around until the Styrofoam is covered. Weave in a 3” [7.6 cm] tail on the back of the egg. When the wrapping is done, to keep yarn in place at the top and bottom of the egg, add a very small amount of white glue under the top strands of yarn.
Wreath Assembly
Insert a stem wire through the back of the each egg vertically. Attach the eggs to the wreath off center, in a row, with the stem wire by winding the stem wire around the wreath and twist tightly on the back to secure.

FINISHING
Before attaching the flowers, pin the flowers in place arranging different sizes and colors. This will allow you to decide what sizes, colors go well together. Once you have decided on your design take a digital picture for reference. Attach the flowers by sewing the back of the flower to the yarn wrapped on the eggs and wreath. Add a small amount of white glue to hold in place. Trim and weave in loose yarn.
