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!
- 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)
- 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.
