Easter Wreath, Felt Topiary and Tree


Yesterday I made this wreath for Easter.  I replaced the pinecone flower wreath that worked well for the winter.  I'm so tired of the cold though - can't wait for spring and the pretty colors!

I picked up a small grapevine wreath ($1.49) and 1/2 price eggs ($.99 a bag) at Hobby Lobby.  I used 4 bags, so the wreath was $5.50.  Total time - 30 minutes.  Not bad!
I started with a plain grapevine wreath, then began hot gluing eggs all around - different sizes worked well.

I added some ribbon that I had, and David hung it for me.  I'm pleased with it!

I turned my Valentine's Felt Topiary into an Easter Felt Topiary.  When I made it I did it in pink instead of red so I could use it for both holidays.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

Friends who come over really like the Easter tree.  I bought it somewhere (I think Lilian Vernon) several years ago.  The boys decorated it.  It's pretty cute too.


I'm linking up to some parties next week.  Stop by and see other great projects!
