Good afternoon y’all!
I’ve been having some media issues- aka. I can’t find my memory card!!!!!! So anyway, trying to use phone pictures in the meantime & apologies.
But I wanted to share this fun wreath I made over the weekend. I actually decided it would be a great time to launch my YouTube career ha! It’s pretty rough, but I’ll share the video later.
Here’s the one photo I have of the wreath in all it’s wonder.
Making your own is easy peasy. You’ll need a grapevine wreath (super affordable at Walmart, less than $5!), plastic Easter eggs, black craft paint, a paintbrush & burlap/ribbon of choice for bow (again, Walmart).
Open up all of your plastic eggs & set them out opened side down on some newspaper, preferably outside. Dip your paintbrush in the black paint & start speckling away! You can see more of the method in the video (coming soon), but I used a pencil to tap lightly on the paintbrush. This gives you just the right size specks. I’d recommend doing a few extra just in case you’re not happy with how some of them turn out.
Once dry, clip back together & arrange on your wreath. Top with a nice big bow & it’s all finished. What a friendly spring wreath!
I made an Easter egg garland with the leftovers & its soooooo easy!
All you need to make one is those super cheap eggs & fishing line. I bummed some leftover line off my fisherman.
Each egg has 2 pinholes on the top & bottom sides. We’ll use that to string them together with the fishing line. For the first & last pieces you’ll use both the holes at one to create a loop & tie it off inside of the egg. if you leave a little extra space, you can use it to tie bows onto the ends. Just perfect for a mantle or above your door!
This would even be a really cute way to lead kids to their Easter basket in the morning or to rope off egg hunt areas.
Happy Crafting Y’all!
