It’s time for a nice, relaxing, crafty post!
One goal I have in life is to convert my daughters and sisters into crafters. I haven’t been too successful yet, but this project was so easy that I believe I might have made some progress. *wink-wink*
My sister wanted to make a wreath for Easter, and we found this project over at Live Laugh Rowe. I expanded it just a bit, adding in a flower garland for more color. We put this together in about 30 minutes, and I liked it so much that I went back to Hobby Lobby and picked up the garlands for myself.
I already had the floral wire from another project as well as a grapevine wreath from the local thrift store, so this was a very inexpensive project. I used my weekly Hobby Lobby coupon for 40% off the floral garland, and the egg garland was 50% off. Never pay full price at Hobby Lobby!
Here’s the (very short) supply list:
- grapevine wreath
- egg garland
- floral garland
- floral wire (it’s thin and green, so it hides well)
Giving credit where it’s due, I made this with my daughter Christine, who also took the photos. She makes beaded jewelry, so she’s pretty crafty already…
The directions for this wreath are short and sweet:
Wind the floral wreath around the egg wreath.
Bend the joined garlands into a circle and place them on top of the grapevine wreath. Cut lengths of floral wire and attach them to the wreath, making sure it’s secure.
That’s it! You have a pretty, springtime wreath for your front door or wall. You can easily change the look by using different colors or omitting the egg garland. What I love is how easy it is to just snip the wire and redo the wreath to match the changing seasons and holidays.
Believe it or not, the first day of spring is next week! If your landscape is still snow-covered like mine is, add some color with this quick project.
