DIY: $4 Easter Wreath
I meant to post this yesterday so you'd have time to try this before Easter, but I fell asleep early and slacked a little bit. If you decide to make this, I hope it's still in time! (Sorry about that.)

I saw this lovely Easter wreath at Target, but since it was $19.99 (and similar ones were equally-priced at Jo-Ann's)...you can guess what went through my mind.

DIY it for less!

So a quick trip to the Dollar Tree later, about 10 minutes assembling it at home with Lil Tot, and now I have an Easter decoration I'm really proud of.

How to Make a $4 Easter Wreath

  • Step 1

    Het up your glue gun.

  • Step 2

    Using lengths of wire, attach one leafy garland around the perimeter or your wreath base. (I circled the wire around the garland + wreath, and tied the ends like a twist-tie, twisting multiple times until it was secure. Then I folded the cut ends of the wire in-between the wreath wicker pieces so there were no sharp edges sticking out.)

  • Step 3

    Add the second leafy garland around the wreath, paying attention to any bare spots left by the first.

  • Step 4

    Close all the plastic eggs. Squeeze hot glue onto an egg; press egg onto wreath in order to camouflage a wire tie.

    Continue with all the eggs, paying attention to color, placement, and angle.

    You're done! Hang somewhere and admire.:-)

    Since I got the eggs, 2 garlands, and the wreath at the Dollar store (and already had hot glue, wire, and wire cutters on hand), the project cost me a total of 4 DOLLARS.

    You could also, if you were particularly enterprising, paint a layer of clear or pastel glitter on your eggs to make them even more like the $19.99 Target/Jo-Ann version.

    Bwahahahaha!

    Happy DIY'ing!
