Easter Wreaths I cut cardboard circles for the base. Mine were 12 inches on the outside and the inside was cut at 9 inches. If your cardboard is not really heavy, cut 2 circles and glue them together, that is what I had to do to get them firm enough to hold all the eggs. I used 4 dozen (I know that sounds like a lot, I was surprised too). I used the iridescent eggs and grass. It took almost an entire package of grass. I found the eggs at Walmart and the grass at K-Mart.
