My kids and I love rubber ducks! The obsession began a few years ago when my daughter was a young toddler. She absolutely loved ducks, so I started buying her new ducks whenever I saw one in the baby department at the store. At one point I order a bunch of ducks offline. However, when the package arrived, I discovered that these particular ducks were not safe or recommended for young children. After much thought and consideration, I decided to use the unsafe ducks as craft materials so that I could safely display the rubber ducks out of reach of my daughter but within sight for her to enjoy. My toddler son also loves ducks just like his big sister!
I started by making a Halloween duck-oration wreath and then created a Thanksgiving duck-oration wreath followed by a Christmas duck-oration wreath. I also recently made ducky wreaths for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day. I am also a bit obsessed with making wreaths for all the other holidays and seasons of the year. Most recently I purchased some Easter rubber ducks from Amazon so that I could create a wreath to display in my home from St. Patrick’s Day through Easter.
If you too love rubber ducks, here are my simple instructions for making an Easter duck-oration wreath.
- Wrap the clear tape around the wire wreath.
- Use the needle and thread to sew the rubber ducks securely onto the wreath. Sew the ducks on with two or more stitches for maximum stability.
- Wrap the garland around the wreath. Weave the garland around the ducks.
- Use the hot glue to secure the garland as necessary on the back of the wreath.
- Display the Easter duck-oration wreath.
