I love wreaths.
In Australia they only come out for Christmas, but I love them so much that I am going to start putting them up at other times of the year.
So for Easter I thought I better make an easy peasey one,
so that I actually finish it!
Ha! (I know myself well!)
* Wreath of any description (I bought mine at a gift shop for $14)
* Polystyrene eggs (I bought three packets for $7)
* Wide mouth jar
* Acrylic paint
* Paint brush
* Hot glue gun or white glue
* Wire or ribbon (for hanging)
Pile your eggs next to a paint colour tube so that you are happy with colour division
Working with one colour at a time firmly push a skewer into each egg
Paint each egg, giving a thicker than normal coat
Place the skewer in the jar to allow the egg to dry
Move onto the next colour
*each egg will need at least 2 coats of paint,
although lighter colours may need 3
Arrange eggs onto the wreath
Take a photo with your phone or camera, so that you can refer to it when you start glueing.
Remove all the eggs and then attach them (using your photo as guide) with hot glue gun or white glue (I use Helmar Tiger glue). Use the glue you are most confident with.
Attach a bow or little wire hook to the back of your wreath – and you’re done!
