Easter Wreath

I can’t have a holiday go by without a wreath on my door to celebrate it.  Easter is no exception.  All of the florals in this wreath were purchased at the Dollar Tree, so it wasn’t expensive to make.  I hope you enjoy it.

I started off with a grapevine wreath that I had on hand.  The first thing that I did was to add a chenille stem loop to the back to hang the wreath.

Then I added ribbon to the wreath & added a bow to the top.  After the ribbon & bow were in place, I wired in some ribbon to make long tails from the bow.

I got all of the florals together that I’d gotten from the Dollar Tree.  They also had bushes of glittered berries in lovely Easter colors!  Naturally, I had to get a few of them!

I cut the florals apart and glittered a bunch of plastic eggs.

I started by adding the lilies, florals & eggs to the bow at the top.

Then I added more eggs & florals to the sides, spacing out the colors of the eggs so that there weren’t  2 of the same colors together.

I wired in a stuffed bunny at the center bottom using a chenille stem.  Since the bunny wanted to fall forward, I tied fishing line around one of the ears & attached it to the top of the wreath.  (You can’t see the fishing line holding the bunny)

Then I printed an Easter message on some vellum paper, cut it out & glued the message to the bunny’s hands.

The message completed the wreath.

And it could be hung on the door to greet everyone.

And I love the way the sun makes the glitter on the berries & eggs glow.

(No big surprise there.)
