Robin’s egg Easter wreath…

I know, I know—I already have a wreath for spring!!  But my Spring balloon wreath is “cute” and I wanted something “earthy” too.  Bonnie and Trish from Uncommon Designs Online made up a beautiful robin’s egg wreath that you can see here—it is stunning!
I bought my supplies from JoAnn's, and the teal eggs they had match my décor so much that I ended up leaving them teal.  I also decided just to put them on the bottom half of the wreath like it is a nest;)  And I used the burlap ribbon I found last week—still in love with that stuff!!  The only other thing I had to buy was the moss to go around the eggs.
Here’s how mine turned out…

The whole project probably took about an hour to do.  I hot glued the moss down first, leaving some holes to glue the eggs in afterwards.  Then I glued the eggs in to place (this was the most time consuming part because I had to wait for the hot glue to dry and it didn’t stick incredibly well)  After the hot glue dried, I stuffed moss in between the eggs and it made it look like they were really nestled in there.

It turned out pretty sweet!!

  2. I was marveling at the balloon wreath and then I scrolled down to this. Both are amazing but this one speaks to me. I had to analyze it for about 10 minutes to see how yo did it. Everything works together so well. I love it, just pinned both!
