Happy Second week in March! Can you believe it?
Well, I just about cannot.
I started looking around the house and realized that we did not have a wreath for our front door.
How did that happen??
I love to make wreaths and while we were in our apartment waiting for our new home to be completed, I think I made one or two wreaths…maybe.
I also think I forgot that I could make a wreath, does that make sense?
For this wreath I wanted to incorporate the symbolism, of the Resurrection into my DIY Easter Wreath.
Some of you may not know this about me but I have a passion for making wreaths and I have been making wreaths for twenty years or more, oh goodness, that really dates me, doesn’t it??
When I had my little Etsy shop I usually filled my wreath shop with brightly colored wreaths.
However, I find that I am becoming partial to neutral hues, earthy elements and natural materials.
For me personally, Easter is a somber as well as euphoric period of time.
So for this wreath I kept the colors soft, natural and pure.
I did add a black check bow, to represent the darkness of the Crucifixion of Jesus and the white cross to glorify the Resurrection of Jesus.
These are the supplies that I used for this project.
But naturally, you will use the colors of your choice, as this project has endless possibilities.
Supplies For Easter Wreath
1-14 ” Foam Wreath
2-Burlap Ribbon 2 1/2 inch wide (large roll)
Instrucitons For DIY Easter Wreath
1-Gather all supplies together and cover work area
2-Wrap and hot glue burlap ribbon to foam wreath
3-Cover entire wreath with burlap
4-Make or buy pre-made bow and add to wreath with florist wire
5-Hot glue Cross and flowers
I suggest that you keep the burlap ribbon tight as you wrap, that way you will only need to hot glue a few times.
The time allotted for this wreath should be just around one hour.
If you enjoy creating Wreaths you might also enjoy this tutorial that I shared a few years
ago, Spring Easter Wreath.
