I don't know about you, but I always want nice stuff. I drool over beautiful wreaths, interiors looking more like a showroom and tables set for royal.
Nothing wrong with that - except when you are a bit cash-strapped....
This morning I set a challenge to myself (and to you) - make something with what you have - there you go...no online shopping or more drooling.
What you'll need:
Any wreath or wall-hanging-form (I used a wicker heart)
- You can bend a wire hanger into a circle, like in this tutorial;
- Or, bend the wire hanger in a heart shape,
- Use an old frame
- Or, an embroidery hoop
- Try using a pool noodle
- Willow tree branches
- Thick carton cut into shape
- A LAUNDRY basket
- Wood cut into a circle or other shape
Lots of ribbon or pieces of scrap fabric
Glue gun and sticks (optional)
Chocolate Marshmallow Easter eggs (individually wrapped) - the only thing you are allowed to buy (unless you have the perfect recipe).
Easter related decorations (from last year or some stuff that you bought years ago and never used!)
- Eg. wooden Easter bunny cutouts
- Easter chicks
- A centrepiece if you like
Some of the links are affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make any purchase. If you do, thank you so much!
How to make the wreath:
Shape the wreath in the desired shape.
Start at the top (or bottom), working your way down (or up).
You will have to experiment with the length of the ribbon or fabric. Tie the ribbon around your wreath and egg and make a bow. Cut the rest of your ribbon accordingly.
The marshmallow eggs are soft enough to be tightly wrapped.
Ensure that the eggs are falling into the same direction (it makes it so much easier).
Attach the centrepiece and decorate as you please.
I added small wooden bunny cutouts here and there (you can use the glue gun - I used press stick (multi purpose re-usable adhesive).
Attach a bigger bow to the top.
The world is your oyster - you can have ribbon with little bells hanging from the bottom or make felt bunnies.
Felt Bunny Patterns:
Passion Forum is a Russian site with loads of felt ideas and patterns. You have to scroll down about three quarters of the page to get to the bunny patter.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and would love to know if this inspired you to make something out of what-you-haves!
