In this post, I'll show you my super-quick costume change from that St. Patrick's Day wreath to this Easter Wreath!
First, gather your supplies. I got a bag of cheapo plastic Easter eggs from Target, though you can find them pretty much anywhere. I also needed some quilting pins.
Now, if you're lucky (like me), your Easter eggs will already have these handy little holes at each end and therefore on each half of the egg. If you're not as lucky, I can think of a number of easy ways to make similar holes. My first stop would involve a candle, a nail, and a pair of rubber-handled pliers. :)
So, pop the egg in half and notice how the pin slides nicely into that handy hole.
Place the half where you'd like the egg to be and just slide the needle all the way in. Your egg will now look something like this.
Pop the top half on, et Voila! An Easter egg which is VERY easily removable.
Now repeat the previous steps for as many eggs as you want to use. I varied pinning the bottom or top half for my karma (also known as OCD), but however you prefer to do it is great. I opted not to use the green eggs because I didn't think they would show up very well against all the other greenery. Finally, the finished product!
I admit, they kind of look like Christmas lights to me in this picture, but they're VERY Easter-y in person. Trust me. ;)
I'll be linking to the parties on the left.
