Last Minute Easter "Wreath" Idea/Pin Win

Hello!
I have been MIA due to a myriad of life events, alas I am here today though! Easter is next weekend, maybe your in-laws are coming over and you are less than seasonally/holiday ready d├ęcor wise?? Or you feel like some craftiness can get you in the Easter season spirit! I haven't decorated for Spring/Easter at all but I LOVE this pin that Susanne sent us and I thought I would share. For those of you who don't feel crafty, take after Susanne and get brave! The results will be darling :) (...and in the off chance they aren't, send them our way and we will commiserate with you!).

The Original
A beautiful and unique piece for the Easter season, and or any other time of year for that matter!
The Pin-Win



"When I saw this Easter "Wreath" I got all excited because I thought “I can handle this!”  If you know me I am not such a crafty diy kind of gal.  So challenge accepted.  I did however call in back up, my friend who is the crafty kind of gal especially when it comes to wreaths.  I had all these long twigs sitting downstairs that I didn’t know what to do with so we broke them into the size of sticks we wanted and to give it that rustic look.  In doing the craft we noticed that the twigs we were using were way thicker than the original picture in the pin but that’s what we had so we went with it.  Here’s our results.  We left off the little flowers throughout as both of us preferred the more simple look.  We were both pleased with the results.   I would say it was a Pin Win, wouldn’t you?"

We sure would Susanne! I love it! And, I love that it isn't just for outdoors during Easter, it can be an inside piece as well!

So for all of you looking for a last minute project, look no further! The twigs you can get at Walmart in the floral department (next to crafts) or any craft store and you could use fresh or silk flowers for this arrangement as well. Most of the other supplies are household items and Susanne said this took her less than an hour to complete.

Happy crafting!

  1. Full of win! I like the version with the thicker twigs better, anyway -- more modern and dramatic.

  2. I love this wreath, but Easter isn't this weekend, it's next weekend! I googled it twice to double check.

    1. Sorry for the confusion! I was already in weekend mode for this weekend and meant next weekend. Got that wording fixed. Thanks!

  4. Well probably a good idea that this posted a week early; gives people a chance to do the craft.
