Look at the EGGS now!

Okay, so remember those jute eggs from a few days ago. Look at them now! They were super cute just on their own, but check out this spring wreath! ADORABLE! I am in absolute LOVE with it!

Spring Wreath, She Made it

My neighbor Melissa and I put this beauty together last night! We glued the jute eggs onto the wreath with hot glue. Added a cutie little nest we found at JoAnn’s. Tied some ribbon and a bow on it. And my favorite part…..the SIGN! Doesn’t it just make the wreath?


We used paint sticks (you know the free ones from the hardware store, I always grab a few when I am there, never know what you might need them for!) This sign used 2 paint sticks. We cute them down to size, and them glued them together with gorilla glue (one of my faves Smileit will glue anything together!) Then we sanded it by hand just a bit to hide the line where the sticks met and then painted it white. A little glaze to distress it and it was so cute. The word “Spring” cut out with my cricut in pink vinyl completed the look. Isn’t that font cute? It is Boingo, and it might be my new favorite!


So what do you think? I think I may need one for myself!!!! How many wreaths can you hang on your door? I already have one…..would TWO look funny? One of the outside of the door and one on the inside????? Smile

Jute Eggs

My good friend (and neighbor) Melissa, has been trying to come up with a way to put those plastic easter eggs on a grapevine wreath to hang on her front door.

I have been helping her out. First we glued them shut and spray painted them. FAIL, they looked horrible ( I should have taken a picture!) The paint dripped while wet, and then cracked as it dried, and you could see the seam where the eggs closed. So…we then filled the seam with wood filler, sanded it smooth and THEN spray painted. The eggs looked good, but let’s face it, TOO MUCH WORK!!!

I saw on a blog somewhere (sorry don’t remember where) jute wrapped easter eggs. They looked fantastic, all organic and brown. Totally cute. When I presented the idea to Melissa she loved it, but didn’t love the brown jute color. So, Melissa wrapped them in jute (hot glueing as she went) she left a long tail so we could hold them up and spray paint them in bright spring colors. So much better than the brown!!

Jute Easter Eggs, She Made it

There are small eggs (foam ones I got at the dollar store) and then regular plastic ones (also from dollar store.)

After spray painting them we used binder clips to hang them from a crate so they could dry without touching anything. Leaving that long tail was a genius idea. It was SO helpful for painting and for drying! After they were all done we just cut off the tail!

Jute Easter Eggs, She Made it (2)

These eggs are gonna look AWESOME on her wreath, and they would look awesome pretty much anywhere in your spring/Easter décor! Can’t you just see them all gathered in a bowl on your table? I am planning on making some for myself to put in an apothecary jar. Can’t wait, these are just what I have been looking for to finish my Easter decorated mantle!
