Easter Wreath ~ Home Sweet Home







 Easter Wreath

Home Sweet Home.
I love a welcoming front door......  especially for the holidays.
I made this cute Easter wreath using vintage flowers and little wooden eggs.
I found the wire base at the crafts store several years ago.  It has a rusted patina and six little coiled egg holders.  I painted the little wooden eggs with craft paint.  After letting them dry thoroughly....  I scuffed them up a bit with sand paper to give them an aged look.....  then hot glued them into the egg holders.  I used simple silk flowers from the crafts store and added vintage velvet pansies.  I found the velvet pansies many years ago at the flea market.  They are so soft and sweet.  Just perfect for my wreath.
I love how it turned out!  So shabby chic.

Happy Easter!
Elizabeth
