DIY Easter Wreath and Vase

I am so happy to share two crafts that I did this past week.  I’m also really excited to bring to you the Sharing is Caring Blog Hop – Easter Edition hosted by Monika from Life With Lovebugs.  Monika is a great friend of mine and I’m so happy to be a part of this great blog hop!  Now, on to my simple crafts (because simple is what I do lol)

Spring Glass Jar Vase

I like keeping spaghetti jars, applesauce jars, pretty much any jar that I can get my hands on.  I’ve used jars to make owl vases before and I decided I want to make another one.  The jar I chose to use already had pretty flowers on it so I knew it was a great choice.

I spray painted the jar using Krylon’s Blue Ocean Breeze spray paint.

After spray painting it, I let it dry and then got back to work.

After heating up my glue gun, I grabbed the other two items I need for this project.  My daughter found these adorable tiny Easter baskets with eggs at Michael’s & I grabbed this twine because I loved how Monika from Life With Lovebugs vases looked with twine.

I started at one side and used the hot glue gun to secure the twine.

I kept wrapping the twine around the jar, gluing it as I went.  I wasn’t sure how many times I was going to wrap the twine but soon enough I realized I loved how it looked.

One last little touch was adding the little Easter basket that my daughter found at Michael’s.  It’s a really simple project but I’m really happy with how it turned out!

Spring/Easter Wreath

I’ve never made a wreath before but I keep seeing so many beautiful ones around & online so I decided to make one.  I grabbed some supplies from Michael’s and got to work.

The first thing I did was clip off a couple of the flowers.  I grabbed two of them and glued them to the wreath.  The speckled eggs I bought had a ribbon on them so I tied them around the flowers.

I arranged the speckled eggs to see how they would look and started gluing.  Then I used the other tiny Easter basket and glued it in with the eggs.  I love how it turned out & can’t wait to hang it on our front gate!

  1. pretty!! can’t wait to do these!

  2. I love both of the crafts! Sometimes I think simpler is better! I really like the color you decided to paint the vase – it is such a soft color.

    I found your page from the Sharing is Caring blog hop! I Have pinned these and will spend a few minutes looking around!

    Nice to meet you! Cynthia at

  3. I love the vase – did you paint the inside or the outside? I like the look of painting the inside, but I have been hesitant to do that on anything I might want to put liquid in.

      Megan, I mainly did the outside. I did spray a little inside when I was spray the top to make sure I covered everything

  4. Since I make little decorations like those nests, I absolutely love the idea of doing several vases with the charms and twine for different holidays. What an affordable way to switch up the decor!
