Its that time of year again, the time when one holiday or special occasion fades away and another is just around the corner. Well this year that corner is a very short corner, St Patricks Day fades very quickly away and Easter will be upon is in a very few days. So the Fireplace Wreath needed changing. Today I share yet another Homemade Easter Wreath.
Creating the Easter Wreath
I love my Fireplace Wreath, it stays up year round and with a few quick changes it just brightens up the room. For the past few years I have left the burlap ribbon as a base, it creates additional fullness and texture to what ever ribbons and colours I choose.
To begin the transformation I first remove all the decor related to the holiday, so the poinsettias and red were removed. I took the decor off the wreath and then ensured the red theme was gone. My 2019 oops was not creating a St Patrick’s Day wreath and keeping the Christmas up way too long. I do love the Christmas Season though, so the wreath made me happy.
Lately I have been loving the seasonal garlands from Michaels. Wait for a great sale and pick up a few fun garlands. It helps create the perfect wreath for the holiday. If you recall, I started that trend back in the fall with the Pumpkin Wreath.
My 2019 Easter Wreath has three unique garlands, a felt swag, a bunny garland and a full greenery Easter egg swag.I add each garland swag individually and create the perfect seasonal decor.
Making a homemade Wreath for Easter
If you have been around you know I have a very large wreath on my mantle that I de-frock and re-decorate each season. I love my wreaths and adore creating fun new looks. The last few years deco mesh has been my claim to fame but I think I may be on a new trend.
- de-frock Wreath from winter but leave the burlap
- pick up a garland from Michaels and wrap it around your wreath
- add the egg and greenery garland
- add bunny garland
Wreath is done. FYI I was able to find the three exact garlands I used at Michaels on line. I have linked them in case you are interested in creating a similar look.
