Spring Fling- Easter Egg Wreath

Jennifer from The Polka-Dot Umbrella

I am thrilled Dianna asked us to participate on her darling blog for her Spring Fling!
The Polka-dot Umbrella is a blog of 5 ladies that all add something fun, different, and creative to the table. Here are just a few tutorials. You can click on the image to jump to the tutorial.

Some of us focus more on sewing, others quilting, refinishing furniture, or paper crafts. In addition we also have a great gal that posts recipes, and another that has some brilliant activity ideas for you and your kids. So, come on by to The Polka-dot Umbrella.
Let's get started!
I was doing a search on a spring or easter door wreaths, and came across two I loved! Something Wonderful, had a brilliant idea for putting paper mache over her eggs to give them texture and a different color. Debbie Doodlings, had a darling idea of putting easter grass in between the eggs as a filler. I had just the plan...
I began by making a flower and water paste, and then used it to glue my paper to the eggs.

I painted my eggs the color I wanted them. If you don't have a pastel paints don't forget you can add white to any color to make it lighter. After I painted them, I speckled my eggs to give them extra texture and color.

I made a frame from cardboard like Debbie did. I hot glued my eggs down and added a little grass and a bow, and it was all ready to hang on the door!

The great part is, not only does it look beautiful and very full, but I only spent $4 at the dollar store!
I hope you find this inspirational! Please come and visit us for more wonderful and inspirational ideas.
