Easter Wreath


While walking around Target last
weekend I found their
way too cute Easter egg wreaths
and fell in love.
Then quickly had to break things off
when I saw how much my love
was going to cost me...
$24.99

So instead I went and bought
these...

Ok, so I already had the
styrofoam wreath and glue gun
and I bought the eggs and grass at
Walmart instead.

But for a mere
$1.50 for eggs (I bought 2)
and $1.00 for the grass
I made my own
Easter egg wreath that I love
just as equally as the Target version.


I started a nice little pattern with the colors
and hot glued into they were all in place.

I even think of myself more as a crafter
now since I got my very
first hot glue gun burn.
I know I'm lame.

So to fill in all those gaping
holes I took the Easter grass
and dropped some hot glue
into the cracks and shoved the grass
in with a pencil.
It ended up looking like this...
I took some green and blue
polka dotted ribbon
and hung that thing on my door.

Start to finished and hanging on my front door
20 minutes.
I think it turned out cute.
Plus it only cost me $4.00

Love me some Easter and springy things!
Too bad we are supposed to get a
horrible northeastern Friday
with a possible foot of snow.
I sure hope this is an
April Fool's joke.
