My {Super Cheap} Pottery Barn Inspired Spring Wreath

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Spring WreathI have a confession…I am addicted to wreaths! I am sure that you know about my plate addiction…and you probably already know about my pillow addiction...but I have to confess that I have a wreath addiction as well. :-) I have one on the inside and outside of every exterior door…not to mention an attic full just waiting their turn! Sooo…when I saw a spring wreath at Pottery Barn, I knew it would be perfect for the inside of my front door!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Supplies 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!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT WreathFirst 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.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Spring Wreath2 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…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Spring Wreath   …and were left over from this super-easy spring wreath that I made earlier. You can find a tutorial for making it here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Spring Wreath Square 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! :-)

  6. Looks like Miss Ozzie has to check everything out that you are doing. The wreath is beautiful and looks great. I also love wreaths but only hang on front door (outside). Will have to start putting on inside of door. Great post - thanks so much.

  7. Love your wreath [both of them, actually], but especially the PB inspired--and, love the shiny eggs! I also love the fact that you managed to do it for for a great price!

  8. Adorable, and brilliantly thrifty.
    LOVE IT.
    You may have inspired me to get off my derriere and make one.
    I love wreaths, too -- can't have too many of them!

  9. Debbie, this is super cute. I love it. Hugs, Marty

  10. I love your version, and you must admit that $79 is ridiculous (sorry PB)! You always make the cutest wreaths!

  11. Debbie, your furry assistants help you make such lovely decor for your home!

  12. Debbie, you are the Queen of knock offs! Baby Kitty has nothing on you! Seriously, very cute and may be an inspiration for a Hobby Lobby road trip. I can not understand why anyone would pay nearly $80 for the PB look alike.

  13. I love this... and I am copying it! Beautiful!!!!!! Thanks, Debbie!

  14. very sweet. I've been craving some pussy willow dec. Need to stop by Hobby Lobby. Thanks for the inspiration.

  15. I love it when we can figure out a way to copy an outrageously priced item for a little of nothing. You did a wonderful job reproducing it and yours is just as beautiful!

  16. What a great wreath, the cat was a little curious.


  17. Another great wreath, Debbie. Pussy willows just say spring, don't they?! I need to get something on my front door and pussy willows would be perfect. Thanks for the inspiration!

  18. Debbie I really like the softness of this wreath! Great job as always!

  19. Love it, Debbie. You are really so crafty and creative....Christine

  20. Fabulous! I like yours better than the Pottery Barn version. Heading to Hobby Lobby ASAP!

  22. So cute! I'm a wreath addict as well!

  23. What a pretty wreath! Great knock off.

  24. Your beautiful eggs dream me to spring ! But in French Britain is snow and great wind. It's incroyable and I have very cold.

  25. Hi Debbie, I made my burlap runner today using your tutorial!It was super easy and looks so good.. thanks for all the tips! love the wreath, I kind of have a thing for wreaths too..

  26. This is really a great wreath, Debbie and it looks so easy to make. Thanks for sharing.

  27. Debbie, this wreath puts the PB one to shame!!! I love it. And you did get a great deal on the pussy willows. The real ones are selling around here for a very high price, and if you ever bring real ones into your house you will find that the little catkins drop everywhere! Wonderful job and inspiring as well! Linda

  28. Your wreath looks every bit as good as the Pottery Barn version. Wonderful job!

  29. Boy, Debbie! You certainly have some good help there with Ozzie. She really knows how to wield a glue gun!

    Cute wreaths both. I'm glad you shared this as I needed a little perk me up. Thanks.

    Love you...
