This wreath was easy enough to make but it was NOT what I had envisioned.
I think accidents happen for a reason… because I love how the current wreath turned out!
After I showed you my spring foyer vignette yesterday, I thought I’d show you more about how I made this Easter egg wreath.
And if you read this post on Saturday, you’ll see that I attempted, miserably, to make a wreath out of chocolate malted milk balls. I wanted to attach the eggs with glue, then spray paint the whole wreath white. Using my hot glue gun was a mistake that turned into a sticky disaster!
I just stripped the melted milk ball mess off the wreath form and waded through my craft supplies and old Easter decor for a solution.
To make this wreath, I took the flat wooden wreath form and glued down some leftover egg vase filler I had from prior spring seasons. I did not really need all the vase filler anymore since I no longer need to fill my apothecary jars with decor. (I painted the jars white, remember?)
I did not open up the raffia to make bows or poufs. I just took the raffia rope and kept weaving and wrapping it around the eggs and wreath form until it looked right. I glued down sections and pieces of the raffia in the back with hot glue.
In hindsight, I’m glad I did not make it out of chocolate!
It will NOT melt in the sun and I can save it for next year!
