Easter Wreath

While visiting family in Nebraska and playing with our 7 month old niece (who has puffy, soft, kissable cheeks I’m already missing), me, my mother-in-law, and sister-in-law tried some Easter crafting. This wreath was made mostly with deco mesh, tulle, and ribbon (all found at hobby lobby). Then we added embellishments with a wood letter, flowers, eggs, and wood skewers. It was very easy and can be put together however you’d like.

Materials I Used:

  • Styrofoam Wreath
  • Green and Purple Deco Mesh
  • Turquoise Tulle with Sparkles
  • Polka Dotted Ribbon (yellow, pink, green, purple, etc)
  • Felt Flower Embellishments (the other ladies also used some glittered egg embellishments)
  • Wooden Letter T (for our last name)
  • Wooden Skewers
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Push Pins
  • Hot Glue Gun

Process:

  1. We cut the deco mesh and tulle into 1 yard strips and the ribbon into a little more than 1 foot strips.
  2. We tied the deco mesh and tulle around the styrofoam wreath. I only tied mine around one time and it stayed just fine. The same kind of tie that you would do for the first step in tying your shoes. You can move the material around easily to look like you want. The tulle will stick to the mesh so I just scrunched and rolled it up after tying it on, and it stuck in place because of the mesh around it.
  3. Then we tied the ribbon in a knot and used a push pin to place it in between the mesh and tulle where we wanted it.
  4.  I painted my wooden T with acrylic paint in stripes and hot glued it on.
  5. The wooden skewers were also painted with acrylic paint and then I hot glued the felt flowers on the non-sharp side and used the sharp side to stick into the foam wreath where I wanted it.
  6. At the very end, before I hung it, I used the hot glue gun to glue down a few pieces so that it looked like I wanted it to.
