I decided our Front Door could use a little sprucing up so I headed to two of my favorite places for cheap crafts - the Dollar Tree and Hobby Lobby.
Here are the supplies I found:
Grapevine Wreath - $1 - Dollar Tree
Large Carrot - $1.79* - Hobby Lobby
Greenery - $1.50* - Hobby Lobby
Yellow Flowers - $1 - Dollar Tree
Mini Easter Eggs - $1 - Dollar Tree
*These were sale prices
I started by setting out a large piece of cardboard on my kitchen table to prevent any crafting mishaps. (This is always a good idea when using a hot glue gun.) I glued the large carrot to the right side of the grapevine wreath.
After the carrot was properly secured, I cut off the long stem of the greenery and glued this to the left side of the wreath. I glued this down in several different places. I wanted to make sure it was secure but still left some wild branches for the texture.
I almost stopped here because I loved the simple look of the carrot with the greenery, but Patrick persuaded me to add the yellow flowers that were in my original plan. I cut off each flower and glued them in a row. It really does brighten up the wreath.
The last step of the project is to add the mini Easter eggs in the greenery. I chose to only use the blue, pink & purple eggs because I already had green, yellow and orange colors in my wreath. I played around with the number of mini eggs to add and finally settled on 6. I think it turned out great. There are tons of great options so it really just boils down to personal preference.
Here is the finished product hanging on our front door - LOVE!
