Cheerful Spring Wreath and Tree

· ·

Just like the darling groundhog (Punxsutawney Phil) predicted, it seems like Spring has arrived early this year. Our backyard, which was covered with snow last weekend, has now turned into a carpet of fat-breasted robins, hopping around like popcorn while they overturn dead leaves and scratch at the lawn in search of yummy grubs and worms. Since Spring is ringing our door bell, I started my preparations with a cheerful Spring wreath and tree to celebrate its early arrival.

You may know my unstable relationship with wreaths from my previous post ‘Wrea-thinking my J-O-Y‘. Therefore, this time I picked a fail-proof wreath which is incredibly easy to make.

I used 3 bags of medium-sized foam Easter eggs from Hobby Lobby and a bag of small Easter eggs from Dollar Store. I also used some green Spanish moss, a Styrofoam cone, a wreath form and a hot glue gun.

Now that we’re all set with the supplies, let’s begin crafting shall we?

I started with the Spring tree by hot gluing the medium-sized foam Easter eggs randomly on the Styrofoam cone. The more random, the better.

Previously when I made the Moss Topiaries, I painted the form with green acrylic paint, because the area where I was hot gluing the moss was wider. Therefore, I either had to use a lot of moss to cover everywhere or paint the form green so any missed coverage wouldn’t show the white foam underneath. But this time I didn’t need to paint the tree form green, because I didn’t leave too much opening between the eggs and with a little amount of moss, I could fully cover the white foam.

Next, I started hot gluing the green Spanish moss in between the eggs.

Once the Spring tree was all covered with moss and medium-sized eggs, I hot glued the small-sized eggs on top of the moss, again in a random pattern. The reason I left the small eggs for last is so they wouldn’t get lost in the moss. Also it was easier for me to achieve a uniform depth by gluing the small eggs on top of the moss.

After finishing the tree, I started working on the wreath. First I spray painted the wreath green. This is totally optional. The only reason I did this is because we have French glass entry doors in our house, so I always try to have a decent finished look at the back of each wreath I make.

Another note on the wreath form: if you make this wreath with a foam form, your job would be lot easier during the hot gluing process. As I found this wreath form for $1 in our local thrift store (the Second Chance Shop), I didn’t want to spend money on a foam wreath form.

The rest of the process was exactly the same, so I didn’t take a lot of progress pictures of the wreath-making. I first hot glued the eggs in a random pattern, then covered the gaps in between the eggs with green Spanish moss.

I love celebrating Spring/Easter with colorful things. It gives such a great and lively mood to our family.

Since I was at it with colorful decoration, I also made these Easter branches which are so simple to make. As that process doesn’t merit its own post, I am just going to explain how I made them right here: I gathered some branches from the woods and spray painted them with flat white spray paint.

Then I hot glued some tiny colorful pom poms here and there, and that was it.

I bought my pom poms from Dollar Store, so this small project cost me next to nothing, but if you don’t have a Dollar Store nearby, you can find these colorful pom poms also on Amazon.com.

In my Moss Ball and Topiaries post, you might have seen my first Spring wreath among the pictures. I also added some pictures of it in this post, as I wanted to show you another Spring wreath made entirely with Dollar Store products.

I am so happy with the way both my wreaths turned out. With every wreath I make, I think I am getting a little better, which helps me to forget the troublesome times I had with wreath-making before.
