Easter Bonnet Wreath
Bits and pieces of inexpensive craft items can be used to create an eye-catching Easter wreath for your front door.
Approximate Time: 1 hour
- cellophane grass or shredded paper
- tacky glue and scissors
- craft foam
- colored plastic eggs
- crafting odds and ends, scraps of fabric trim scraps, pom poms, small bows, puff paint
- wide ribbon or a large bow
- piece of string or yarn
- Draw and cut a wreath shape from cardboard. I used the side of a cardboard box. Spread glue over the surface of the wreath shape and press cellophane grass or shredded paper into the glue. The circle I started with to make the wreath measured 13 inches across, and I cut a 6 1/4 inch circle from the middle to make the hole.
- Cut 3 inch circles from scraps of craft foam. I used decorative edging shears to cut these, but any scissors will work.
- Glue half of a colored egg to the center of each circle to create your hat shape and decorate your hat shapes with craft odds and ends.
- Glue the little hats around the surface of your wreath, leaving space for the bow.
- Make a large ribbon bow and glue it to the wreath. I used 3 yards of wide, wired ribbon to make mine, but you can use what you have on hand or use a pre-made bow.
- Make a loop from a piece of string or yarn and glue one end of the loop to the back of the wreath to make a hanger.
