Hey, guys...it's Andi!
I'm sure you all have noticed, I LOVE to decorate for the holidays! I told you in the last blog I posted that I had something in mind for Easter, well, here it is!!!
I started with this wreath I found at The Dollar Tree...LOVE ME SOME cheap!
I took all the eggs off of the wreath. Since they are painted Styrofoam, some of them lost spots of the paint in the process. I got the moss I found at Walmart and began to cover the wreath in it. I used my handy hotglue gun for this.
Once I covered the whole front of the wreath with moss, I flipped it over and filled in the spaces on the sides (inside the circle and out) with more moss...to make sure it's even.
Then I began to add in the eggs again. Now as I'm sure you remember, I mentioned that some of the eggs were peeling their paint. I glued some moss to the spots and arranged them on the wreath where they were hidden.
I ended up not using all the eggs that were originally on the wreath, as I liked it a little less full. I also arranged them pointing in different ways, so it's less uniform.
I LOVE the finished project!!! I'm going to find a "Happy Easter" sign to attach to it! ; )
Now, I had some extra moss left over from the wreath, so sitting at my table I came up with another idea. I have some wood shims (you can get a cheap small bag of them at The Home Depot) that I'm using for another craft. I busted into those puppies and pulled out two and broke the tip off one.
I glued the two wood shims together in the shape of a cross.
I then began to hot glue moss to cover one side of the cross.
After I finished with that I realized that if I cover both sides, I could use it leaning up against something instead of just hanging on the wall. So, I covered the backside with moss, as well...here is the finished product!
Pretty cute, huh?!?! ; )
