DIY Easter Egg Wreath
Easter is soon approaching and one of my favorite holidays.
I wanted a new wreath for my front door.
Something different, unique and of course.... handmade. I decided on a shabby chic meets burlap look. I love the natural look of burlap but can't resist adding roses, lace and pearls to the mix.
The first step was to prepare the eggs.
I painted paper mache eggs in different shades of blue and let them dry overnight. I used Americana Decor Chalk Finish paint found at Michaels. Then decorated them with vintage lace, buttons, pearls and little paper flowers.
Tip: use an empty egg carton to sit them in to dry.
The next step was to prepared the wreath.
I was elated to find a natural grapevine wreath shaped like an "egg".... well, sort of.
I sprayed the wreath with a thin coat of clear Matte spray paint to add a bit of shine to the grapevine. Then added chicken wire to the bottom half of the wreath to form a "basket" and filled the cavity with spanish moss (to resemble a "nest" to hold the eggs). Using hot glue, I added the vintage lace and handmade burlap rose directly to the chicken wire..... and finished off by adding the burlap bow and decorated eggs.
I love how it came out!
It looks great on my front door.
Hope you enjoyed my Easter DIY project.
Have a wonderful week!
