Greetings A Spectacled Owl readers! My name is Barbara and I am the author of Chase the Star where I write about DIY projects and crafts. I’m thrilled to be here with you guys today, especially during the beginning of the beautiful Spring season. Today I’m sharing an easy Easter Wreath tutorial, from my archives…enjoy!
A Unique Easter Wreath!
Can you believe that Easter is right around the corner? Wasn’t it just Christmas?! Colored eggs, Peeps (yum!), and pastels are everywhere! I’m already behind on my spring decorating, so today I spent the afternoon making an Easter wreath, hoping I can get some more spring projects in this week (not holding my breath!!).
At Michael’s as I was looking for wreath moulds I came across this gorgeousness and just couldn’t pass it up:
Then it dawned on me..who says my ‘wreath’ has to be a perfect circle, or a ‘wreath’ at all? It was an ‘aha’ moment, complete with a light bulb over my head and everything.
I looked through the aisles making it up as I went along, and threw these items in my cart:

While this dried I began working on the wood plank sign with the same method I used here, and then added a quick coat of white spray paint to it.
More drying time, so I taped all my stencil letters together to form the words for my sign.
Once everything was completely dry I nailed the wood sign on to to the back of the wreath, added the turquoise paint with a foam brush and some black and white striped ribbon I had lying around from an old project.
Very cool side note: this project was cheeeap! I used a coupon directly scanned from my iPhone (check out my ideas for Decorating and Crafting on a Budget), spent about $12 and I can use this Easter Wreath for years to come! DEAL!
Do you have other ‘outside the box’ decorating ideas?
I just want to thank Barbara for stopping by A Spectacled Owl today & sharing an awesome project that she did. She is definitely my biggest DIY/Craft inspiration and is always just a text or Facebook message away for me to bounce ideas off of. I’d love for you guys to check out her site, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks, Barbara!
