Even though we don’t really celebrate Easter in my family, I can’t help but get excited when the store shelves start to fill up with bunnies. This year I decided to throw together an Easter wreath for my front door. I wanted it to be similar to my mid-century modern Christmas wreath but on a smaller scale. I was lucky that I was able to purchase everything I needed for just $5 at the dollar store.
I started by wrapping the foam wreath form with Easter garland. It took two 9′ strands to cover the whole wreath with garland. I used hot glue to attach each strand at the beginning, then end, and in the middle.
Once the wreath was covered in the garland I started adding on the decorations. In addition to a cute pink bunny I also added a few glittered eggs as well. These were originally ornaments so I just had to cut off the ribbon hanging loops before attaching them.
I decided to use some purple glitter ribbon that I had on hand to hang it by (that also matched one of the eggs). I went back and forth about how to hang it on the front door. I have and over-the-door wreath hanger but felt it was too large for this smaller sized wreath. I finally remembered that I had some VELCRO brand HANGables left over from Christmas and knew just what to do.
HANGables are removable wall fasteners that are meant for frames and can hold up to 4 pounds. They were perfect for this project! My plan was to loop the ribbon from the wreath over the top of the door and attach it on the inside. I put the permanent side of the fastener on the back of the ribbon and the removable side on the door. It is plenty strong enough to hold up the wreath through Easter AND it is totally removable.
Once the wreath was up I decided to add a bow to the end of the ribbon since it does show on the inside of the door. I’m the only one that will most likely see it, but it looked more finished in the end.
For just $5 and about 30 minutes I was able to put together a super cute Easter wreath for my front door. I see a holiday tinsel wreath trend forming here… which holiday is next??
