Homemade wreaths add a warm and inviting touch to any household. This beautiful Easter wreath via the CSI Project is a great example of an inexpensive way to decorate for Easter or Spring. I love the use of colorful spring grass mixed with the soothing pastel colors .
For this project, you'll need:
- Square of spring grass
- X-Acto knife
- Plastic easter eggs
- Paint Brush
- Glue/Hot glue gun
To make this Easter wreath, create a "frame" by cutting out the middle section of the grass square. Open the Easter eggs and coat them with primer. Then paint the outside of the eggs the colors you like. Here, the eggs are painted cream and light blue. Then, mix brown paint with a little water and use a paint brush to flick speckles on the eggs.
Glue the eggs to the grass wreath, alternating the colors. Then, glue on any spring or Easter embellishments you like. In this case, the original poster added a bird’s nest and a butterfly. Paint a picture frame in a coordinating color and then use a short length of muslin to hang the grass wreath on the frame.
Here are a few money-saving tips: If you’re making several wreaths, you can buy a roll of grass for crafts at your craft store for about $10. Most of the materials can be purchased inexpensively at your local dollar store or thrift store.
