I’m usually really into decorating for the holidays, however, we just bought a house in November and I've been feeling overwhelmed with decorating. So, in an attempt to get in the Easter spirit I decided to add some Spring to my front doors.
I scoured Pinterest to find a cute and easy DIY Easter wreath. Luckily, I found a pin from Cindi’s Blog, showing a wreath made of Easter grass and plastic eggs. I study the picture for a few minutes and decided it met my cute and easy criteria. After going to Michael's for supplies I found it also met my cheap criteria too! The cost to make both wreaths was under $15!!
- 1-2 Wooden wreath forms (I purchased mine at Michael’s for $3.99 each, Cindi made her’s from cardboard)
- 1 bag of Easter grass (it was enough to cover 2+ wreaths) $0.79
- Approx. 2 dozen plastic Easter eggs for each wreath $4.25 for 3 bags.
- Hot glue gun and about 3 hot glue sticks for each form
|I laid the wreath form on a trash bag so when I was done trimming the grass, I could just bunch the bag up and toss it.|
|Make a 3-4 inch zig-zag of hot glue directly on the form.|
|Press grass onto the hot glue. Repeat until the entire wreath is covered in grass.|
|Hold your wreath upside down and trim the grass to about 3-4 inches long. You can do this step before or after you glue the eggs in place.|
|Add eggs to the wreath by placing hot glue directly on the grass and form then press the egg into the glue until it is secure. Next, add a pretty ribbon and hang up your wreath!!|
|Here is the finished project!! I'm really happy that I was able to throw both of these together in under an hour and get them up on my door to share with my neighbors.|
