Today’s post is part of a fantastic event that I have started. I don’t like to brag, but it’s pretty awesome. I’ve teamed up with a few other bloggers to bring you a whole bunch of great Easter posts! At the end of this post there is a list of all the other Easter posts for you to enjoy!
Every year for Easter we have brunch at my house. I’ve always focused all of my time and energy into preparing the food and literally no time in decorating. I don’t even hide the eggs for the hunt, I have my husband do it. Who has time to hide eggs when you’ve been cooking all night and all morning! But now that I have been blogging for about 2 years, I’ve picked a few tips about decorating. Pinterest helps a bit too. I have plenty of time to prepare my decorations for Easter brunch and I need to write posts for my site too, right? So here is my first item – an Easter wreath for the door!
What better way to great someone at the door than this bright and colorful wreath! I made one for Fall with yarn and it took for-ev-er to wrap that thing in little tiny strands of yarn. So this time, I got smart. I went through my giant pile of fabric scraps and found a large piece of pastel pink fabric that had little tiny dots and circles on it. I cut a few stripes 4 inched wide and started to wrap a plain foam circle. Now, I am all about re-using and don’t want to have to buy another foam circle so I used clear tape to secure each piece of fabric and you can’t even tell!
Next I made some felt flowers in different size and attached then to the wreath with pearl pins. This way, I can just remove the pins and re-use the wreath! Also, the pearl pins looks really cute in the middle of the flowers and it’s much easier to re-arrange the flowers with pins instead of glue.
I’m so happy with the way it turned out and can’t wait to make one for the next holiday! Thanks for visiting today and be sure to check out all of the other participating blogs in the Sharing is Caring Easter Blog Hop!
