I wish I could tell you that my house is all done up for Easter and I am ready for the good ol’ Easter bunny to come down my chimney or knocking at my door (how does he get in?) but I’m not. So in the spirit of needing an Easter decoration stat, I put together a little wreath, using mostly stuff I had on hand.
The eggs are real eggs that had given me a headache after spending an hour blowing their guts out. They were brown eggs and the easiest way I could think of to get good color was…wait for it…SPRAY PAINT! Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. I wasn’t too sure how the paint would stick, so on half of them I sprayed a coat of primer on first. The others I just painted without the primer. The paint stuck just fine, but the ones with the primer came out glossier. Just so you know.
I had the moss sitting on my dryer forever,
making a mess waiting to be used. And the wreath form kind of looked like a nest, so it worked.
Then I used my glue gun and stuck everything on. I can’t seem to not burn myself with the glue gun. Blisters on my fingertips make it hard to type.
Anyhow, the wreath was super easy to make. I’m really loving the candy-colored eggs and the bright springy moss.
P.S. Do you like my new side table? It’s on casters! You can get one here.
