Like I've said before, I like to have a reminder of the real reason for the Easter season (still love bunnies and eggs, don't get me wrong), so I wanted our Easter wreath to reflect that. I also wanted it to have a touch of Easter how we think of it--- hence the eggs. (Although, did you know they are also a symbol for Easter because chicks break free of their shell just as Christ broke free from the bands of death--- everything points to Him.)
- Grapevine Wreath--- I got mine at Hobby Lobby with 40% coupon
- Wooden Eggs--- I got 2 pack for 4 for 1.99 each. In the wood section of HL. I honestly picked the size by holding them up to the wreath
- Vinyl, stencil, alphabet stickers or a permanent marker
- Glue Gun & Accessories
- Paint the eggs whatever color you want. I put two coats on mine.
- Create the Letters in the medium which suits you. I used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl out. It could also be done with stencil and paint, permanent marker free-handed or alphabet stickers.
- After the eggs are dry, apply the letters and seal it (either with spray or paint-on acrylic sealer. My front porch gets A LOT of sun and I wanted to make sure the letters and colors didn't warp.
- Arrange and glue on the eggs. I had a perfect section on my wreath to fit the word 'risen' and I thought the other ones looked nice above. There's many ways to do this. Then CAREFULLY glue on an egg at a time. I've used a glue gun multiple times in my life and right after I told my almost 4-yr-old how dangerous they can be, one egg slipped out of my hand and onto my thumb, with fresh glue on it. Seriously, be extra careful.
- After you ice a finger or two (if needed) sit back and enjoy your new Easter wreath.
Happy Easter, everyone!
