I'm a sucker for Easter decor. If I had to choose between Christmas and Easter there would be no contest. I even tell my kids that they can spend Christmas elsewhere if they want, but they better be home for Easter! I put out a huge brunch and I make awesome Easter baskets. When they were young we did Spring crafts with them for a month. To me, it means: renewal, birth, joy and Resurrection Sunday. It's warm out, the birds are singing and the flowers are popping. I prefer it to all other holidays.
This wreath uses calico covered eggs mixed with antique lace, flowers and a mossy straw wreath. Decidedly a natural look. No glitter and garish neon eggs here!
I have to apologize here. I messed up by not making a proper tutorial for the fabric eggs. But basically you place the egg on the fabric, cut to fit and then using Elmer's glue you cover it snugly. In this picture I'm cutting the egg in half, to get more eggs for the wreath and save on work. The scissors must be very sharp. I cut part way through and they used a knife to finish.
Glue the moss on the wreath, add the bow
Scatter the eggs, don't line them up like soldiers.
Finish by adding flowers. I also used woodshavings (my new favorite dried material).
