Better late than never.

So I never really thought fabric wreaths were my thing. But I keep seeing super cute yarn and fabric wreaths all over the place. And I never thought I had a good spot to hang a wreath inside my house, but I have seen people hanging their wreaths from curtain rods, and I realized that duh, where I hung my shamrock bunting would be the perfect place for a wreath. So I picked up a wreath form and got to work with some supplies I had on hand to make a super simple Easter wreath.

This is what I came up with:

Ugh, venetian blinds, how I loathe you! I can't wait until we have our own home.

All I did was wrap the wreath in burlap using hot glue, and attach (also using hot glue) the little nest and eggs I had bought for another project but decided not to do. The buntings are actually made out of scrapbook paper I had on hand (since I didn't have Easter-appropriate fabric scraps) that I just strung with white embroidery floss and tied on the wreath. I'm super happy with it, except for the letters - I wish I bought some scrapbook stickers or even chipboard letters, but I was being cheap. Not bad for $3.50 though, right?

Now to finish the rest of my Easter decorating. I usually like to enjoy my holiday decorations for at least a couple weeks, but I've just been too busy. Better late than never I guess?

  16. What a great spot to hang a wreath! And I, too, didn't notice the blinds because of all of the wreathy-cuteness!

    Love the idea of the simple wreath. If you attached everything with straight-pins, you could change out the wreath for each holiday (REALLY stretching that $3.50!) : )
