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!

    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

    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!

      Thank you so much, Nicole! I’m in love with the color of the jar too. Every time I walk by it now I smile :)

      Thank you so much, Kathy! I am loving the decoration you made for your kitchen. Those big candy jars are awesome!

    So pretty. Love the color but I think I might make white so I could change out the chotzkies for different times

    I love these crafts!! They are so perfect for Easter! I try to save glass jars from various things too, but I never thought of making it into a vase! The design on the glass really stood out when you painted the jar!

    Too bad I missed this for Easter but am already thinking of all the other seasons that this simple yet great craft could be used at home and as a gift. Thanks for getting the wheels turning.
