I’ve been short on time here lately trying to get Revyn’s room wrapped up for you all to see. Plus I’ve had lots of reports at work that are due by April 1st for 2013. These reports just keep coming, but I finished them all! Woohoo! I was trying to come up with a spring wreath idea, and then one day in the school parking lot waiting on Rev I figured it out. I’m sure lots of you out there get in some pinterest time while waiting on your kiddos! Those parking lots should now come with free Wifi for us moms so we can check out pinterest and Facebook. Wouldn’t that be great and save on our data plans.
I wanted a smaller wreath to hang in our house to bring in the bright spring colors. So here is what I came up with.
It costs me under $5 to make it! As I searched pinterest here was the inspiration I kept focusing on from Patina White.
I was short on time and was trying to think of an inexpensive way to make it. Then one day in Target I found these slinky’s in the dollar bin.
So I picked up a few, and we made a wire circle from electric fence wire. Here is how it looked around the wire circle to help keep its form.
I attached it to the wire circle with tie wraps.
Next I painted the whole thing white so that my eggs would pop against the white color. I painted it the lazy way as it was getting dark and was super windy. I found a semi calm spot, held the wreath in my hand, and then just twisted around as I painted. I may have ended up with white fingers and nails.
Then I just started stuffing in the package of eggs I bought.
For the top I had this flower (you can get some similar at Michaels for a buck) and just made a junk bow behind it.
So for under $5 you can have this bright colored spring wreath to put in your home. I hope you all are enjoying spring blooming as much as I am. The wild flowers coming up here in Texas are stunning.
