And you probably also know that I am a big fat copy-cat, so with the help of our lovely CEO Miss Ozzie, I checked my stash to see what I had on hand. This one is going to be super easy and inexpensive! Let’s see…Easter eggs…check, twig wreath…check! All I needed was a few stems of faux pussy willow (three, in fact) and…woo hoo!…they were on sale at Hobby Lobby for under $2.50 each!
First step…cut the pussy willow stems to the correct length and work them into the wreath at an angle. There are already little wires holding it together, so I just slipped the end of the stem under it and then bent them to follow the curve of the wreath.
Next step…hot glue the Easter eggs to the wreath in a random color pattern, varying sizes and angles as you go. I had to use the high temperature setting and hold the eggs until the glue set. Be careful…those hot glue burns hurt! Ouch! My eggs came from Hobby Lobby as well…
…and were left over from this super-easy spring wreath that I made earlier. You can find a tutorial for making it here.
And…taaa daaa…here it is! I love it! And best of all, I spent $7.50 on mine instead of the $79 for the Pottery Barn version…and that makes me very happy! :-)
