Welcome Spring: Floral Egg Wreath Under $10


I didn't do any Easter / Spring decorating last year since we were in the middle of moving, but this year since I get to decorate of course I had to make something new. I started out thinking I was gong to do a wreath full of plastic eggs but as projects go with me, it morphed into something else. HA!

Supplies: 
  • Plastic Eggs ( Target $1 per package). Bought 5 ; used 4
  • Wreath Form ( Dollar Tree $1)
  • Felt  (on hand)
  • Drop cloth scraps (on hand)
  • Ribbon (JoAnn $3 on sale)
  • Cuttlebug
  • Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die
  • Scrapbook paper ( on hand) 
  • Glue Sticks
  • Glue Gun


I knew I wanted an ombre look so I laid the eggs around the wreath form to make sure I liked it. 


I also learned from a previous project that I didn't want any of the wreath form to show so I wrapped it in strips of drop cloth I had on hand. 


Then it was glue, glue, glue around the form. I left a space where I knew I would put the ribbon and which was just that much too tight to fit one more egg. 


I kind of made this up as I went along and my brain said "leaves" so I cut a leaf  template from paper freehand then used it to cut leaves from felt with pinking shears. 


I put a dot of glue on each leaf, pinched it together then glued to the form. Now, what to do to finish? 

I cut 16 flowers using my Cuttlebug and Metallic Yellow and Cream Scrapbook papers ( 8 from each color). I debated about alternating them or alternating the layers of each and ended up as shown doing half and half. 


Finished with a bow!
