In today’s video, we’ll show you how to make Easter egg angel ornaments with Easter craft supplies.
I know not everyone has an Easter tree but I usually leave up at least one of my little Christmas trees all year long. Mainly, it’s for taking pictures of the Christmas ornaments we sell on Etsy, Amazon Handmade, and our online shop. But I also love to decorate it for every holiday!
In the past, I’ve shared it decorated for:
Today you’ll get to see how to make one of the decorations we used for our Easter tree!

Supplies for DIY Easter Egg Ornament
- Easter eggs — I used styrofoam in the video which works well if you’re using hot glue. If you want these to last longer I recommend using wooden eggs and E6000
- light blue paint
- burnt umber paint
- old toothbrush
- jute and/or string, lace, or other trim
- rusty wire
- metal angel wings
How to Make Easter Egg Angel Ornaments
Step One: Paint the Egg
Paint the egg a light blue, let dry, add a second coat. Once the second coat is completely dry, water down a little bit of burnt umber paint and “flick” it on with an old toothbrush.
Optional: My styrofoam eggs had a seam in the center. I hot glued a piece of jute on to cover it up. You could use lace, ribbon, or any other trim you have.
Step Two: Add a Halo
Cut a piece of wire a little longer than you think you’ll need. (I didn’t measure… as usual!) Make a circle on one end and bend it to a 90-degree angle. Trim off the end of the wire if necessary to get the height you want.
Styrofoam egg: Just stick the wire into some glue and stick it into the styrofoam. The glue isn’t actually necessary either.
Wooden egg: Drill a hole in the top of the egg with your tiniest drill bit. Dip the end of the wire into E600, then stick it in the top. Hold for a few seconds to let the glue set a little bit.
Watch the video below to see just how I made the halo.
Step Three: Attach Angel Wings
Glue the wings onto the egg with either hot glue or E6000. I found that when using E6000, it was easier to let the ornament dry completely laying on top of a little tart tin. That way the wings didn’t move around. The back of the ornament won’t be flat… the egg sticks out a little further than the wings.

If you’re a more visual person (like me) you’ll probably prefer watching the video. Bikeman is currently working on a shorter version for you but until then, here’s the Facebook Live I did.
