Well a cheery HELLO and Happy Easter! Last night while talkin’ to my mom-in-law, she asked what we were doin’ for Easter. Honestly, hadn’t really given it much thought. I’m just glad we won’t be on the road or have any major plans. Pretty sure Boo ‘n I will be takin’ it easy or whatever we fancy. We do want to go see the Kevin Costner (draft day) movie, so that’s on tap. Other than that, my contribution to Easter this year…
a spring-y wreath for the front door (it looks smashin’ on my yellow Hello) and some homemade lemon~coconut cupcakes. My itty-bitty way of sayin’ “Happy Easter” to my hubby and the neighbors!
But my Easter treat to YOU is the diy for the door wreath (simply cuz I can’t mail you a cupcake)!
The project is simple, inexpensive and you can personalize it with your monogram! But best of all—it doesn’t have to be just for the spring if you incorporate other colors. Have fun!
SPRING DOOR WREATH
24″ vine wreath
MDF letter of choice
1 sheet (your choice) scrapbook paper
1 large flower (your choice)
Trace your letter on the backside of the paper and cut. Using the foam brush and mod podge, brush a layer of it on the backside of paper and on the letter. Now, lay paper right side up on the letter and use brush to smooth out any bubbles and wrinkles being careful not to rip. Allow to dry completely. Once dry, use a paper towel to rub a small amount of medium on edges and wherever you want to give it more character.
(You know those soft drink can tabs? Well, I save ’em sometimes to use as picture hangers). I just nail the tab down with small nails or screws. That’s what I did here, or you can drill a tiny hole at top to run wire through for attaching to the wreath.
Next you will attach the greenery and flower to the wreath using the floral wire and then attach the letter and you’re done!
