Easter Wreaths 1 & 2

First, I must say that Easter is my favorite holiday to decorate for! I just love all of the bunnies and chickens and the wonderful colors! Two of my friends asked if I would make an Easter wreath for them. Since I LOVE a good wreath, of course I said yes! Here is what I came up with...

I will admit that when I started the first wreath, I was so indecisive and could not figure out exactly what I wanted the wreath to look like. Here are the supplies that I ended up using for wreath 1:
  • 18 inch grapevine wreath
  • 1 roll of poly mesh (I used the 21 inch wide mesh and I used about 3/4 of the roll)
  • 2 rolls of wired pink ribbon
  • 1 roll of polka dot ribbon
  • wooden bunny for center (This was a yard pick that I had to cut the stake off of.)
  • 7 Easter egg picks (from Michaels, everything else was from Hobby Lobby)
  • lots of gas making multiple trips to Michaels and Hobby Lobby because I was so indecisive about what I was doing. :)
  • Total cost to make wreath - roughly $30
Soooo tada here she is..
After the headaches, frustration, and plenty of gas fumes - I think the wreath finally turned out cute! My friend was pleased with it, so at the end of the process that is all that matters. :)

After my experience with wreath # 1, I was pretty scared to even get near Hobby Lobby or Michaels to start on another wreath! I was a little anti-wreath and anti-hot glue gun. Butttt I had already commited to making another wreath. So here is what I came up with for wreath # 2...
  • 15 inch grapevine wreath
  • left over mesh from wreath # 1
  • 1 roll of Easter egg ribbon (I totally fell in love with this ribbon!)
  • bunny for the middle
  • 4 large, sequined Easter eggs
  • Total cost to make wreath # 2 - roughly $20 (not including the cost of the mesh)
This is what I used for the center of her wreath. It had 3 bunnies hanging from the welcome sign. I cut the 2 bottom bunnies off because it was too long, so I will use the 2 extra bunnies for another project to be determined at a later date. :) So ladies and gentlmen, I now present to you wreath # 2... (Sorry for the poor picture on this one.. I took the pic with my phone.)
Next on my to-do list is my own Easter wreath. I have decided (so I think) to make mine out of all Easter eggs. We shall see how that turns out! :) I am linking up to the following parties today: :)
