Easter Egg Wreath

I had an idea to make a wreath with plastic eggs and after I googled it I found several ideas I like but I really liked  this blog post with a tutorial and thought I would give it a try! I hope you like my wreath and it inspires you to make one! 


I started out by cutting a cardboard ring to be the base of my wreath.



I purchased my eggs at the dollar tree, I ended up using 4 packs of 18. 

I just glued the eggs on in the pattern I liked.






After I glued all my eggs in place it was time to add the Easter grass! I took a clump of grass and put hot glue on the end and stuck it into place with a pencil.  This step was pretty messy.  After I would do some I would trim the grass and use it again until I filled all my holes.  I also glued grass around the outside of the wreath where the cardboard would show



After I had all the grass in place and trimmed I started on my bow. 

I'm not 100% sure I like this bow, what do you think?  I'm thinking I might get some different ribbon that isn't as transparent and make another.  Also, do you think it's too big????

I used my handy Bowdabra to make the bow (do you like my pajama pants?). 





Now it's time to hand the wreath!  I just used a piece of the same ribbon I used to make the bow and tied a knot in the back.


Then I hot glued the bow onto the front corner of the wreath..... be honest, what do you think of the bow?



And now for the final product!



Updated 3/10 - I decided to change the bow out, what do you think of the new one???

Love it and I love the new blog! I agree though...the bow is missing something. I think its the fact that its sheer.

I love this! It's so colorful and pretty. I also like that you used cardboard as a wreath form. I use a lot of cardboard in my crafts. :)
