Happy Wednesday Friends! Today's project was inspired by memories of childhood. When I was a little girl, attending my church's Easter egg hunt was an annual event. Hunt though I might, somehow the prized golden egg always escaped me!
I have been getting busy with gold paint lately and I am enjoying adding the gilded accents to my spring decor. After painting some thrifted plastic eggs gold, I added white polka dots with the end of my paint brush. This one's resting on my spool of ribbon, ready for drying.
I found this mossy ribbon half price at Michael's and decided it would serve as the "grass" for my eggs.
I attached the moss with the hot glue gun, stretching a piece and then gluing until the wreath form was covered. I used exactly one 2 1/2 yard roll of ribbon for a 12" wreath.
Before adding the eggs, I combined two types of ribbon to make a double bow. Making bows is not one of my strengths, but I've learned to create a simple, not-to-frilly version by tying one bow on top of the other.
Last, I glued on the dotted golden eggs and
a little bee...just bee-cause ;)
Don't forget to pin it!
