Easter Wreath Tutorial

Last week I whipped up a little Easter wreath for our front door. I had the egg garland on hand from last year but I purchased the wreath, sign, and ribbon from the Dollar Tree. Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE that place!! :)

The first thing I did was cut the garland and then I un-strung (is that even a word??) all the eggs from the string. I then separated them into piles according to their color. After the hot glue gun was warmed up I started glueing the eggs onto the wreath like so.

Here is what it will look like when you get all the way around the wreath. I then started glueing another layer eggs on the outside and inside of the first layer. Kind of overlapping them as I went.

You should end up with something like this when you are finished.

I then took the sign and tied it around the wreath with the ribbon and glued it in a couple spots so it would stay put. I finished it off by tying a bow with the same ribbon to hang it from. Here it is on my front door. (Excuse my reflection in the window)

I am very pleased with the way it turned out and even more pleased that it only cost me $3 to make since I already had the eggs on hand. I will try and share the rest of my Easter decor very soon. See you later on for Mmm Mmm Mondays. Until next time, BYE!
