Easter Wreath | Lifestyle & DIY

Here is the first in my DIY Easter series. I thought I would begin with something simple, an Easter wreath. Now of course you can use this idea for other celebrations and occasions throughout the year, it really is that simple to change! I did take inspiration from Pinterest however, there wasn't a particular tutorial available so I have just done as seen. I will explain it all to you now. A big thank you to Country Baskets for providing me with a voucher to put towards my materials. 
What you will need:
Cute bunny(!)
(the above were purchases from Country Baskets)
Scissors or pinking shears
Hat pins (optional)
Cotton
Wool
Step 1:
Wrap the ball of wool around the oasis foam ring. Warning: this can take a lot of time, and those with allergies are best to wear a mask (as I did!) it can be very fine and get up your nose. 

Step 2: 
Cut your felt into strips (size entirely up to you) and wrap around to make flowers, secure these with the cotton. Use the hat pins to secure into place, you can glue them if you prefer. Stick the stems of the roses into the oasis. 

Step 3:
Cut and tie a length of lace to the top of your wreath for hanging. 
Step 4:
Add your super cute Easter bunny to the middle! 

There you have it. A quick and easy Easter wreath that doesn't break your bank, and will brighten up anyone's home. You can use any colour scheme you like, perhaps brighter colours for Spring however, I really liked the colour choice I've picked as it matches my decor.

    1. It's such a simple thing to do! And with pinning the flowers in can be changed depending on the season and your decor! :) x
