Ok, I know I said Easter is my "least favorite" holiday,
but I can't help but make something when I see all these super cute things in the stores...
|Ok not so cute now...|
|Now, you have to agree, they are nice|
|And these, just TOO CUTE to pass up!|
SO with all of these, I decided to make wreaths for our doors!
The wreaths are $3.99 each (50% off now, so I only paid #3.99 for 2 - Ka-Ching!) from Hobby Lobby. The carrots ($4.95 for 3 - yes, more expensive than the wreath) and the moss-covered bunnies ($2.95 each) are from Pier 1 Imports. I also bought these...
|$1 at the dollar store|
|59 cent flowers from "Steven's" - is used 2 for each|
After I decided the placement of my ornaments, I did this...
The carrots come with it's own jute rope tie, so I just tied it to the wreath, then, used floral wire to attach the bunny stick on the wreath. I did not break the long stem of the bunny, I just bent it and hid it behind the wreath.
Then I added Mod Podge and Spray Adhesive to attach my moss...
|Must-haves for any crafter|
I cut the flowers and glued them on using glue gun. The finished product is this...
|Not bad for my first wreath|
|Bunny tries to hang-on|
|Door is now all set for spring|
|Doorway for spring - almost done!|
Well, there you have it, my simple and super easy craft project. Total cost is about $11 for each!
Have a nice Spring day!
DISCLAIMER: I saw a wreath very similar to this one on etsy. However, when I tried to find it again to give credit to the original idea, I did not see the wreath anymore. The wreath there cost around $35 each + shipping.
