Easter Wreath

My friend Jamie and I made Easter wreaths based on some Pinterest inspiration.

We looked at the instructions and supplies from two blog posts (see below) and then just made it up as we went along.

Total cost: $12 and 2 hours to make two really pretty wreaths. Instead of using all the pastels we each picked a specific color palette. Jamie did blue and purple and I used pink and green with a couple yellow accents.

2 twelve inch wreaths ($3/ each at Walmart)
3 bags regular eater eggs (42 eggs in one bag for $2 at Walmart)
3 bags mini eggs ( $2/bag at hobby lobby)
1 bag tiny glitter eggs (hobby lobby)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
ribbon or tulle for hanging

Optional Decorations:
ribbon for bow
Ribbon trim, glitter glue, nail polish, washi tape, buttons, stickers

We raided our ribbon supplies and hot glued ribbon trim on a couple of the eggs, as well as some glitter glue designs. We also tried some nail polish stripes and had the buttons out to hot glue but ended up not using them. Our wreaths have 3 rows of large eggs (one on top, and inner row and outer row) with smaller eggs filling in any gaps to fully cover the wreath frame below.

I'm so happy with how this project turned out.   Allison likes it so much she's asked for one for her bedroom door.

We looked at these two tutorials:
