Show-n-Share Egg Wreath Makeover

Did you know that March 20th marks the first day of spring? I guess it's officially time to take down the winter wreath. I've got a simple and inexpensive spring wreath tutorial for you.

Raise your hand if you love Target's dollar bins?

When I saw their Styrofoam egg wreath for $2.50, I knew it had great potential.

This wreath cost me less than $3 dollars (the silk flowers were .50 cents from Dollar Tree) and the glue, glitter and ribbon, I already had in my stash of craft supplies.

Supplies:

Wreath
Brush
White glue
Glue gun
White glitter
Silk flowers
Ribbon

Step 1. Using a brush, lightly coat each egg with white glue and sprinkle glitter over the glue. Shake excess glitter onto paper.

Step 2. Remove silk flower blossoms and attach to the wreath using a glue gun.

3. Brush silk flower blossoms with white glue and sprinkle with glitter. Shake excess glitter.

Step 4. Hang wreath with a silk ribbon and enjoy!

Happy Spring!
XOXO

I hit the dollar bins there last night and got the same wreath for my classroom. I may have to give it a little spruce up before Monday!

Oh man...that is sooo much cuter with the embellishments!! I heart the Target $1 bin. You are amazing!

Definately going to do this.. I love wreaths but usually don't buy them because of the cost. I have 7 doors that need wreaths so it can be a little costly! Thanks for sharing all of your ideas

You know I never like those wreaths because they are so plain. It never dawned on me to add to them and glitter them. Honestly, I think I way overthink things far too often. Thanks for sharing...Renee
