A few weeks ago, I was at Michaels and saw the most darling wreath. It was covered in yellow feathers then dotted with Easter eggs and really, really cute. The frugal decorator in me knew I could make it for less than the $30 price tag Michaels wanted...so I went on a scavenger hunt. It took two trips to do it cheaply!
I bought 3 Craft Boas (they are next to the costume boas, wrapped on cards and cost $1.99 each), 3 picks of small glitter Easter eggs (99 cents each). I went twice so I could use 2 of the 40% off coupons on 2 of the boas.
At home I found a wreath form (styrofoam) I bought at Dollar Tree a while back, and I cut a length of sheer pink ribbon. I wrapped the boas (2 hot pink, 1 light pink) around and around the wreath. I glued the ends down. Then I cut the eggs so that each had about 1 1/2" of pick left to stick in the wreath. Once it was done, I tied the ribbon around the top of the wreath and hung it on my wreath hanger. Voila!!! Instant Easter decor and it's all the things I love about Easter decorating: bright, glittery and FUN! Even better, it was very inexpensive - even with tax, I believe it was about $9 for everything! I absolutely love it. I think it looks adorable with my teal front door!
