DIY Easter Wreath

As I mentioned earlier this week, I managed to get myself and the boys to Michael’s last weekend and grabbed some cute Easter things all at 40% off.  Yay!  That was the easy part.  The more difficult part was figuring out what I was going to do with them.  I knew for sure that I wanted to make a wreath of some sort for the front door so I grabbed the biggest mdf wreath base I could find.

Did I remember to take a picture of the big mdf base?  No.  I was fixated on moving quick since both boys were awake and I had no idea how many minutes I had until someone cried.  I started by hot-gluing the moss to the base until it was completely covered.

I love the look of the moss but I had no idea it would be so messy.  I had to vacuum twice after this project was complete. Three times if you count my dropping it in the foyer and moss bits flying everywhere.

Then I hot-glued hollow plastic eggs in random patterns to the moss.  I usually take apart anything that comes as a set because the supplies go further so I cut those little sparkly eggs right off their stems.  Then I glued those little cuties, some little carrot decorations, and even the ribbons to the rest of the wreath, just sort of filling in bare spots as I went.

I attached the wreath to the door with this super cute ribbon.

And we have a wreath for the front door!
