Easter craft.

It appears I'll be blogging once a month. Whoops. My roommate and I made an Easter wreath the other day and I actually thought to take pictures so I could put it on here! I got the idea from my mom, who I believe got the idea from Southern Living. You'll need:

plain wreath (I used a green plastifoam)
plastic eggs (depending on what size wreath!)
glue gun & sticks
hook or wreath hanger (I used a green 3D hook)

If I could do it again... I would opt against the shiny ribbon. eek. Also, I wanted a straw wreath but they were all sold out! With that you wouldn't have to wrap it in ribbon.

If you get the horrendous plastifoam wreath, work the ribbon around it. I just taped it at the beginning and end. Then, attach the ribbon to hang it with. I didn't want to knot it, so I put a dab of hot glue to keep it from sliding. There is no method to placing the Easter eggs--just have fun! Easy as that!

I know Easter is about way more than plastic eggs and bunnies... but I love crafty, cute activities!
