I decided to get into the holiday spirit with this fun and colorful wreath! Having POTS and several chronic illnesses, I always have to battle extreme fatigue, and my hands become numb after awhile. There are a lot of things I am not able to complete but I decided to get involved in the Easter spirit and make a craft! Remember, even though life can be difficult at times, and you’re hurting it’s important to still have fun, and do things to get your mind off of things. I loved this craft and it makes you feel good to accomplish it! Anyone can do it, however, for those with a chronic illness, it’s suitable for you! It was inexpensive, and I did it in my bed! It didn’t overly tire me out and didn’t make my hands go numb. I did take several breaks, so the break option is completely up to you! It is an easy project to have a lot of stopping points, therefore, it allows you to take breaks whenever you need to. Let’s get started!
- 48 small eggs
- 16 large eggs (*optional*Used to fill in holes)
- Hot glue gun
- 12inch round ring wreath
- Hot glue the bottom of the plastic egg. Make sure the egg is fully closed.
- Place the egg on the wreath on the outside of the ring. *Tip* when you place the egg on the ring with glue, hold both sides and a finger on top of the egg to ensure it doesn’t pop open.
- Press the egg on for 10 seconds.
- Place the ribbon and tie it anyway you prefer, it’s easiest to put the ribbon on before you completely fill the ring with eggs.
- Repeat the first 3 steps until the outside of the ring is full.
- Create another row of eggs on the inside. Try to stagger them as much as possible.
- Continue steps until the ring is full.
- Optional* place the large eggs on open spaces.
That’s it! Pretty easy and it turns out pretty cute! It’s always nice to find activities for those with a chronic illness to be able to complete without becoming over exhausted. It’s important for us to still have fun! I hope you enjoy this craft! Happy Easter!! ♡
