Easter Wreath Ideas

What Base to Use for an Easter Wreath?

As easter wreaths often contain an abundance of flowers, a moss base wrapped over a wire frame can work fantastically. The moss can create an oasis for your flowers and greenery and if it is watered regularly it will keep them looking luscious and full of colour.

What Colors Signify Easter?

Easter and spring wreaths are quite similar and there is often an overlap in the colors used. You can expect a range of pastel colors and lighter shades to reflect the new life blossoming of flowers. Typical easter colors include:

  • Purple

  • Pink

  • Yellow

  • White

  • Gold

  • Pastel Colours

Shades of pink, purple, yellow, and blue are often present, particularly in the flowers and natural elements of easter wreaths.

What Foliage is Best for Easter Wreaths?

Easter wreaths use similar foliage to spring wreaths with branches and leaves being used from birch, rowan, and hawthorn trees. 

  • Birch
  • Rowan
  • Hawthorn
  • Cherry blossom
  • Hyacinth
  • Pussy willow
  • Pansies
  • Anethum
  • Lavender

Aside from the tree foliage, you can expect many flowers, herbs, and shrubs that traditionally blossom during the spring including Lavender, Pansies, Pussy Willow, Anethum, and Cherry Blossom.

What Decorations Look Great on Easter Wreaths?

The decorative aspects of easter wreaths typically revolve around new birth and the animals we associate with springtime:

  • Easter Eggs

  • Bows

  • Toy or Paper Rabbits

Easter eggs feature prominently in various pastel shades and some wreaths get creative with cracked open eggs or even painted eggs with beautiful patterns on. Paper or toy rabbits and chicks are regularly added as easter wreath decorations too.
