Come learn how to make a sweet Spring and Easter wreath featuring speckled eggs, ribbon, pom-poms, moss and a bird house... all from the dollar store!
This creation is one of 26 DIY Spring wreath ideas for the Seasonal Simplicity blog hop hosted by The Happy Housie today! Make sure to check out all of the other ideas at the bottom of this blog post.
Want to make a cute wreath on a budget? This one is perfect for you! It's colourful and sweet, but all the supplies are from the dollar store. I love how this one turned out!
Supplies (I found all of mine at Dollar Tree):
- wire wreath form
- 30 plastic speckled eggs
- 1 spool ribbon
- small wooden birdhouse ornament
- hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
- latex or chalk style paint
Cut the ribbon into 8" lengths and tie the pieces on different parts of the wire wreath form at random.
Glue the eggs on to the wreath form with a hot glue gun. Change the directions of the eggs to give the wreath a casual look. Leave an empty space large enough to attach the wooden bird house ornament.
Use latex or chalk style paint to paint the wooden bird house to coordinate with your wreath. Cut off the top string and let dry.
Attach the bird house to the wreath with a hot glue gun.
Create 5-7 pom-poms with yarn by wrapping the yarn about 50 times around your hand, removing the yarn from your hand, and then tying a scrap piece of yarn around the center. Cut both looped ends & fluff to create a pom-pom.
Glue the pom-poms to any open spots on the wreath with the hot glue gun.
Pull some moss apart into smaller pieces and hot glue it to any open spots on the wreath.
And you're all done! I love how whimsical and colourful this wreath was, and that it was so inexpensive to create.
