Spring is here (well kinda, it’s March 31st and it was snowing this morning) but technically it is in fact Spring here in Connecticut. Since the weather is still a bit too bitter to enjoy some outside activities, I spent the weekend mostly indoors shopping, running errands and may have gotten a massage (oh the perks of being a media planner!)
My shopping ventures this weekend took me to Jo-Ann Fabrics (no surprise there) where I stumbled upon an egg wreath that I feel IN LOVE with (pictured below). The only problem – it was 40 dollars!! Yes, Jo-Ann’s offers great coupons (I highly recommend you download their store app here) but the price still seemed a bit steep for a mid-twenties girl living on her own.
Here are the directions to making the Egg Wreath on your own:
Supplies you will need:
- Plastic Easter Eggs (I got mine for super cheap at the Christmas Tree Shop. The wreath took about 48-60 Eggs but this will really depend on how full you want it to look)
- 10in Straw Wreath (or any floral wreath)
- Spanish Moss
- Acrylic pastel paint
- Hot Glue Gun
- Paint the plastic eggs the color of your choice. I chose natural pastels and then speckled them with a brownish/red paint to really give them the realistic loo
- Take the hot glue and glue the eggs around the wreath.
- Fill in all the bare spots by hot gluing the Spanish moss onto the wreath. I used a skewer to really poke the moss into the open holes to make sure it all stayed to get a fuller look.
- That’s it! Pretty simple as long as you know how to hot glue!
