DIY Easter Wreath
This project can be a little time consuming, and includes working with a hot glue gun, so be careful! I am not sure about you, but I tend to get glue all over my fingers every time I use one. Needless to say, it's still really fun to use! The wreath is made with very small amounts of materials. A cardboard box used as the circle base to create the wreath, usually we have something of the sorts lying around. The plastic eggs, which you can find pretty cheap at Wal-Mart. I actually bought a couple bags of eggs for only 10 cents after Easter with their clearance deals. The Easter grass, as well can be found cheaply at Wal-Mart. That stuff tends to get all over the place too, you'll most likely be picking it up for days! But the outcome will be so cute, and worth it. Then just find decorations you want to add onto the wreath. Cute, simple, and easy DIY project. What more could we ask for? :)
- Find a circle object to be your base. I actually used a cardboard box for this and cut it into a circle. It's almost more stable then it seems, once everything gets glued into place. A box cutter might be helpful for this- we used regular scissors, but it was struggle to cut it out. You need to make sure the inside of the circle gets cut out as well.
- Next take the plastic Easter Eggs and start gluing them to the circle cut out. Gluing them in different directions adds a cute pattern to the wreath. Once there is a full layer on the bottom, start adding a second layer on top off the first layer of eggs.
- The Easter grass comes next. A pencil or something with a smaller tip is going to be very helpful during this part. Be prepared for the mess left behind with the grass, you will literally be finding it for days! Add the grass in the cracks between the eggs with the glue. Make sure you add enough to present a fullness to the wreath.
- The final step is adding decorations, ones you find appealing. I found some cute glitter cut outs for the dollar store near me. The butterfly, bunny, and even a cute bow really made the wreath pop. I used a Popsicle stick to hold up the pink bunny in the middle of the wreath. Gluing one end to the bunny and one end to the back of the cardboard circle cut out.
