Homemade Easter Wreath
Hi friends! Sorry for disappearing for a few days. We’ve been having fun, hanging with:
Honey! Ryan had a conference in Vegas this week (rough life), so my mom came to visit and spend some time with me and Lila! Lila has LOVED having Honey around—she’s a lot of fun.
And I’ve loved having the extra help during the crazy teaching juggle that is my life. Ryan got back from Vegas last night, and we all went out to dinner. My mom flies back home today. But, we’ll see her again in a few weeks when we head to Shreveport for spring break (Spring Break, 2013, what, what?!?).
I wanted to share this cute, quick (well, relatively speaking) craft project I completed a few weeks ago:
My Easter wreath! I got the idea from a few different Pinterest pins (ummmmm, JUST now getting into Pinterest—OBSESSED). Some of the yard wreaths I saw were SUPER complicated, but I kept mine simple. Just the wreath, a “W” (for our last name), and a few pretty pink eggs!
I started with a simple circle foam wreath:
I picked a nice green yarn for the wreath, and wrapped the yarn around it nice and tight—honestly, this was the longest part of the project. It probably took about an hour(ish). It also took longer because someone:
…was all too interested in the yarn. Don’t ever take on a yarn project when you have a crazy, destructive cat in the house. Apparently yarn is the cat version of a speedball.
At Michael’s, I also picked up some styrofoam eggs and a wooden “W.” To decorate the wreath, I wrapped pink yarn around the eggs, and blue yarn around the “W.” I attached the eggs and letter with a hot glue gun, tied a pretty yellow ribbon around the top for hanging, and voila! My Easter wreath was complete!
You can find much more complicated versions of this wreath on Pinterest, but again, I kind of like the simplicity of my creation!
