BURLAP Easter Wreath DIY

 Here is a cute Easter wreath that you can do with  just about $6 or $7.
All supplies came from the Dollar Mart except for the $5.00 roll of burlap that I found at the 
Dollar General Store.
 The Easter egg shaped cardboard cutout was a $1.00 at the Dollar Mart.
I bought spoons there too, but I didn’t use them for this craft.
 Just cut you a piece of burlap big enough to cover up the entire egg frame.
I removed the center Easter design picture and I will attach it back later.
It just had a string tie on the top that poked through to the back.
 I hot glued it all in place.
 This was the string, pop through, tie on.
It is very easy to stick back on.
 This was the back after I popped the string back in.
————-HINT————
This is the point where I now wish I had stopped.
Now looking back, this is where I wish I had stopped and just fixed a hanger for it.
I just love the plain ole’, burlap look in pastel colors.
 But too late now, cause I just kept on going. Seemed like it just wasn’t long enough a craft!
ha.
But I kept going determined to use the pretty burlap ribbon I had found for a $1.00!
 I just hot glued it all on, including the hand tied bow.
 And for the top, I just crinkled the ribbon up a bit.  Tacking it as I went with more hot glue.

And check out the Easter egg design. I cut out bits of the blue on the ribbon and hot glued them in.
Just to tie in the colors a bit more.
Photo below is of the grapevine twig that I cut from on a primitive tree I had.  I just had to have some, so I cut some off the bottom!
 I used the bits of twig garland to make a little nest to hold my hand painted egg.

 Here it is up close in the nest. I took sticks from the yard and spray painted them white and glued them in to. Just to give a little more spriggy detail.
And the little bits of white pip berry sticking out is just pieces I snipped off a string of garland I had hanging in the kitchen.
 And not really knowing how I was going to make a hanger, I just cut this out.
 Then I made sure it was big enough to slip a wreath hanger hook into.
Then just took hot glue and glued all the edges to make sure they wouldn’t peel out or stray.
And here’s the back again
 And here it is all done again:
And hanging on my front door.
I’m going to send this up to Miss Emma, age 11, in the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to brighten up her room while she is fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma.
 Fight Like a girl Emma!
And I hope ya’ll give this a try. I think my most favorite part looking back though, was when it was just finshed in burlap and no ribbons. 
So keep that in mind when you make yours!
See ya’ll next time,
~Lisa
