Rick-Rack Easter Wreath

 

Hi everyone!  I’m Priscilla and I blog over at Thrifty Crafty Girl!  I’m so thrilled to be here to share with you more Reasons to Skip the Housework! Today I’m going to show you the cutest little rick-rack easter wreath you’ve ever seen.

But first, say “rick-rack wreath”.  Rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it? 🙂

You’ll need a few items from your crafting stockpile: namely, a wreath form, pastel felt, rick-rack, some scrap fabric and a hot glue gun.

 

Wrap your scrap fabric around your wreath form…

 

…and then get ready to cut out a million eggs out of felt.  OK, it’s only a dozen or so… but it felt like a million.  Then again, I’m a tad dramatic.  For the egg shape, I used a clip art picture to get the proportions right.  I tried to freehand it, but it ended up looking like Humpty Dumpty got implants.  Not terrific.

 

Next, pin those pretty little felt eggs to your wreath.  The pins aren’t staying in, they’re just a placeholder so don’t worry too much about it.

 

Here’s where the rick-rack makes its entrance.  Cut a small length of it and wrap it around the felt egg and wreath.

I did say this was easy, didn’t I?  ‘Cause you’re almost done.

 

Once you have your rick-rack where you want it, hot glue it in the back.

 

Remove the pins and admire all your hard work!  OK, well it wasn’t hard… but no one else has to know that.  I added an over-sized egg to mine to enhance the adorable-ness.

 

I hope you all come visit my blog soon!
