I have been enjoying the month of love so much, that I hate to take down Valentines decor ... but with Easter next month, its time!!
This sweet wreath took a whole package of coffee filters to make. I stacked three together, then pinched them into flowers and used a hot glue gun to attach them to a vine type wreath from the dollar store.
Then I chose these antique Easter postcards from the huge selection available on Graphics Fairy. I tried to choose designs that would allow me to add the glue and glitter letters, swirling them around the designs, as you see. Next I cut them out, and glued them onto old manila tags, adding rickrack and trimming the bottoms. I used old silver garland to suspend the tags, figuring it would bring out the silver glitter of the letter. I am pretty happy with this simple wreath ... and what a bargain. $1 for coffee filters, and $1 for the wreath base, the few tags, hot glue, glitter, and colored ink together were less than a dollar, I am sure, for a total of $3!!
Welcome Spring and Easter, with all its chicks, birds and bunnies ... Now if I could just have something other than snowy forecasts, I would be perfectly content.
