Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
How in the world can it already be April? This year has flown by,
and even though I can’t believe Easter is right around the corner, it’s happening just the same.
As far as holidays go, I am a big Easter fan. Of course, the meaning of the holiday is incredibly important. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is a powerful message, and one I like to remind myself of every day.
Not to mention, it’s the last holiday for a long time that can be celebrated (usually) without sun screen.
To get myself in the Easter spirit—and indulge in my love of bunnies—I spent some time crafting a new wreath. And I’m excited to share this tutorial so you can, too!
DIY Easter Wreath
Time: 1 Hour
Approximate Cost: $20
Materials: Wreath form, artificial moss, yarn (or ribbon), decorative eggs, decorative bunny, glue gun, scissors
First, wrap the yarn around the wreath form and tie it securely in place. You can also use ribbon for this for a different (and quicker) effect.
Next, work your way around the wreath by wrapping the yarn and keeping it pulled tight. This does take a while, so prepare to be patient.
When finished, simply cut and hot glue the end of the string in place.
This step is optional. For an added effect, I wrapped a string of burlap around the wreath as well. This layer is applied much wider.
Cut the string and hot glue in place. Then, hot glue two sections of moss to the bottom of your wreath.
Now, it’s time for the eggs. Hot glue the decorative pieces on top of the moss.
Lastly, add the bunny (or other decorative piece). After I hot glued the bunny in place, I glued some more moss underneath him.
Add a string to the top of the wreath so you can hang it up, and you’re done!
