DIY Easter Wreath.

Over the weekend I was bored so I decided to make an Easter wreath I thought I would share it with you all, I love the speckled eggs and a couple of years ago Johnny and myself spent hours blowing out eggs, then painting but they are very fragile. I had seen on other blogs where people had spray painted the plastic egg so I decided to try it.
First I opened all my eggs

then lightly spray painted them because I did want the color to show just muted
Next I took some brown paint, an old toothbrush and my finger. Just dip the toothbrush in the brown paint then I took my finger across the bristle to splatter the paint. Warning this is a little messy.

I hot glued the eggs to a grapevine wreath added some flowers here and there a cute bow.
Now you have a great Easter wreath :D
How is every one's Monday going its COLD here yuck!
I am getting excited Johnny and I leave on Thursday morning for Savannah! This is the first trip the we have ever been on alone in 17 years can you believe it!

hugs and loves
Carrie

Seriously, this makes my night!! I am vegan so I don't dye eggs. Now I know how to make some awesome cutie eggs for my son to find. I may even have to create a wreath for myself :)

Thank You!!

Have a great time on your vacation :)
