Updated wreath this year on our front door.
Last year, on Easter, I brought it inside to the buffet.
It worked because last year the dining room was accented with turquoise.
This year, since I'm using pinks, greens, and gold - I added them to the wreath.
(That raffia wreath was a .50 cent find that I used to get my craft on - lol)
I found BAGS of eggs for $1 and some for .50 cents at Poverello Thrift. The multi-textured ones were $2 and after spraying them gold, they are the ones hanging on the blossoms & branches on the buffet.
I started by removing a few of the blue & chocolate eggs
Afterwards, I added in (with hot glue - ouch!!) some pink, green and white eggs.
I added back the blues and browns I originally removed, but it still needed a little something. A little more green to relate to the garden...
Last years wreath on the front door...
This years refreshed wreath on the front door.
Simple - and it also picks up on the two metal pink bunnies in the planters.
It will be EZ to remove and store after Easter... however, I don't think I'll be able to store it up in the attic since the eggs were hot glued... hmmmm. Unless I just take my chances and wrap it up tightly to hold the eggs in place.
I like the mix. When I first started it, just adding the pinks, it was looking too much like a baby shower wreath. Mixing in the greens and a few whites helped it say Easter (especially the chocolate!) It's simple and not over done.
Do you make or use a wreath on your door for Easter? for Spring?
or do you use something else?
