Can you believe that Easter is just around the corner? This year has flown by so far and I'm feeling a little late to the game when all of the holidays seem like they're jumbled together. We just finished Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day is just over a week?away. Then we've got Easter just 2 weeks after that! I wasn't sure if I should start decorating for St. Patrick's Day or Easter, so I decided I'd better just do both!
I love hanging wreaths on my door or just setting them around the house so I thought it would be fun to make my own. When I was at the dollar store a few weeks ago, I picked up everything that I needed for $6 - you really can't go wrong at that price!
DIY Easter Egg Wreath
- Foam wreath base
- Silk flowers - I chose yellow, pink, blue and white
- Easter egg ribbon
- Foam Easter eggs
- pins with ball heads
- Hot glue gun
Step 1. You'll start by taking?your flowers off each large'stem. You'll be left with just the buds and a small stem. (see pic below)
Step 2. Unroll your ribbon and straighten our any kinks. Fold one end over a bit, then attach to the wreath base with hot glue and insert a pin to make it extra secure.
Step 3. Win the ribbon a bit and repeat step 2.
Continue repeating steps 2 and 3 until your wreath base has ribbon all around it. It may not look perfect but that's ok because the flowers will fill it in to look beautiful!
Step 4. Start with one color of flowers and attach them all around the wreath base, using hot glue. If you're able to, you might want to stick the flowers through the wreath base. Unfortunately, mine wouldn't stick through so the glue gun worked great!
Repeat step 4 with the remaining colors of flowers, until you've reached the desired fullness of your wreath.
Step 5. Add some hot glue to the foam eggs and place them over each of the pins that you poked through to hold the ribbon in place This will hide the pins and create a decorative element.
Hang it on the door or gift it to a friend!
