Old/New Easter Wreath

Not so darling anymore!
I bought a darling Easter wreath a few years ago at TJ Maxx. The wreath structure was foam that over the years had really worn out. The poor little eggs kept falling off and didn't have anything to hold them in place.

I went to Joann's and bought a new round foam wreath for $5. I was going to pick up another white boa but the cheap thrifty side of me couldn't see spending that much to fix this little wreath. I decided to take one of Old Mac's old white shirts and cut it up. I tied the strips around the wreath.

Once I had the whole thing covered I figured where I wanted the eggs to be placed. I also put hot glue at the base of the eggs. The final thing I did was took a strip of ribbon and glued the ends together. I made a knot so there was a loop to hang the wreath from. I'm so pleased with how it turned out!! I think it's just as cute as the original! 

The Dollar Store has darling eggs right now that have sticks on the ends. If you are wanting to make one before Easter next week, those would work perfect! 



Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!! I read all of them and they all make my day!!
