This wreath idea was something I came up with after seeing all the fun and pretty spring and Easter wreaths on pinterest. I have actually had this 4 inch roll of burlap ribbon that I got at Hobby Lobby a couple of months ago and it was time to use it for something.
This wreath is super simple and easy to make. I think you can easily make one in 45 minutes or less. Here is what you need to make one:
- 1 wired frame wreath whatever size you choose – mine was smaller as I wanted it for the back door that we go in and out of a lot
- 1 roll 4 inch wide burlap ribbon
- 1 package small plastic easter eggs
- 1 chenille stem to fasten bow
- glue gun
Step 1: Wrap burlap around wire wreath, overlapping edges as you go – glue at back when get to where you began to secure
Step 2: Glue plastic eggs onto burlap in desired areas – leaving an open area where the burlap overlaps for your bow
Step 3: Make a bow with the burlap ribbon and secure to wreath with chenille stem – do this where burlap is glued to cover
Step 4: Glue a plastic egg in middle of bow to hide chenille stem- you could glue more than one if you wanted to
That’s it – you are done – find a place to hang your new wreath and admire it!
Note: For hanging purposes you may not want an egg in the top center – mine is hanging a little off center because I glued one there – but it doesn’t bother me.
Below you can see a better view on the door of the size and how small it is. I didn’t want a really big wreath because we go in and out this door to our patio a lot. Also, for the purpose of storing the wreath I think this will fit in my Easter storage box that goes in the attic.
I hope everyone is having a great start to the second week in April.
