Spring is on its way folks! I know most of you have seen me lamenting about it this past week, and it’s kind of funny that I love Winter so much, but really can’t wait for Spring. I’m fickle about whether I guess. Haha! I thought since I had such a nice response about my Valentine’s Day wreath, on Instagram, that I would share how to make a wreath for Easter with you all. You see, wreath making just might be the thing I’m best at, and I find it to be a quick, easy, and fulfilling craft. I’ve been making them for years now, and I don’t see an end in sight. While I was out and about the last couple of weeks, I ran across some cute supplies. I found a vine of flowers, a burlap bunny, a patch of green grass, and adorable colored eggs, at Hobby Lobby. I purchased a couple of wreaths from Target’s dollar spot, knowing I would use them for upcoming projects, so I had that on hand already. Browsing the dollar spot yesterday, yep I was back again, I ran across the cutest burlap flowers on tiny clothes pins. When I saw them I knew they would work with the rest of the supplies I had at home, so I snatched up three sets, not knowing how many I might need in the end. Most of the time, I don’t set out with any particular idea in mind when I’m making my own wreath. I find that as I come across supplies, they just sort of speak to me, and I know I can do something with them together. Even as I was creating this wreath it morphed from the original layout I came up with to what it is now. That’s the best part about creating something. You can make it to your likes, and don’t have to settle! I thought it might be easier to follow along in pictures, and maybe a little instruction, but honestly, I don’t do anything special. I just glue the pieces as I go along, and well, if a happy little mistake happens, you can always “fix” it, and honestly, since it’s one of a kind, who will know?!

Burlap Flowers (Target Dollar Spot)
Adhesive (I used a glue gun for this project.)
1: Figure out how much of the vine you want showing, and then cut down your flowers to fit. I used three twigs off the vine of flowers, so I have a ton left over for other projects.
2: Add the grass. The grass that I purchased came in a small patch, so I was able to pull a few sets off and attach them with glue.
3: Add the bunny! Just glue it wherever you’d like. I preferred mine to sit in the grass.
4: Add the eggs. You can choose to use more or less than I did of course. I found that I wanted more than I had planned and ended up with five. (Tip: Find the layout and direction of each egg before you add the glue. This will help you avoid seeing clumps of glue if you changed your mind.)
5: Attach the burlap flowers. I just clipped them on instead of gluing, but you can always glue them if you’d like.
And that’s it! I absolutely love the outcome of my wreath, and I really hope you do too. Please let me know if you attempt to make your own based on this tutorial. I’d love to see your work!
Have a wonderful day, friends!
