I think I was overly ambitious when I started my wreath of the month project. I might have had better luck if I just chose to make a wreath each season instead. So in compromise I've decided to tweak my project a bit to become a wreath every other month instead. And then next year I'll complete the missing months as needed. Whew.
So in honor of Easter and all things spring this month, I chose to make an egg wreath. Coincidentally it also was the easiest wreath I've made so far and all I needed were some pastel eggs (nicely speckled from Joann's), a grapevine wreath, and a hot glue gun. My kind of project.
- Grapevine wreath: $3 (at Joanns)
- 2 boxes of speckled pastel eggs: $8 (50% on sale at Joanns and well worth it)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks: free
- Total cost: $11
- Total time: 10 min to make, 24 days to gather up the resolve to actually get the materials and get started
Oh and here is where the wreaths I make usually hang--by the back door that leads into the garage. That way we get to admire it each time we leave the house!
