Do you ever get the urge around the holidays to get crafty?
But I don’t have a lot of time, so it needs to be simple, or I will probably give up half way through.
I have seen these tulle wreaths all over – like This adorable turkey wreath that you can sure bet will be on my front door this November – and decided Easter is the time for my first try.
You will need the following:
- Rolls of tulle (however many colors you want – I went with 4)
- A styrofoam wreath
- Hot glue gun
- Decorative eggs
Basically you cut the tulle and tie it onto the wreath. As I mentioned in my St Pats blog with the shake, I don’t really measure. I wrapped the first piece around, cut where I thought would be a good length, and tried to cut the rest similarly. I trimmed the pieces that where way longer to help it all blend together.
This is how I tied the tulle
After tying a TON of tulle through a few episodes of CSI cyber crimes or whatever the FBI show with Dawson is (or James Van Der Beek), I had my wreath.
I plugged in the glue gun, and glued the eggs on. And voilà – an Easter Wreath!
I’m probably making one for every holiday now. It was that simple!
So even if you’re like me, and waited until a couple days before Easter to start your festive project, this is one you can finish before your guests arrive on Sunday.
