Bless our Nest Wreath

My initial plan was to make a cute Easter wreath covered in pretty painted eggs.  
Plans change.
This is my final product, and 
I love it even more than my original vision for it! 

Courtney at A Diamond in the Stuff painted plastic eggs and they looked great.  
It inspired me to make this wreath!

I coated the eggs in primer and then in Krylon's "catalina mist."  
I tried covering the wreath in eggs, but I just wasn't loving the look I had going.  So, I left my partially started wreath mess all over the counter and played outside with the ladybug and little guy.  (It was a gorgeous day here!)  I returned with fresh eyes and a new idea.  

These types of wreaths remind me of a nest so I added 4 of my painted eggs to the bottom 
(4 eggs for the four people in our family).

I cut triangles for the pennant from leftover muslin.  I cut the letters from card stock on my Cricut.  Then I strung the pennant together using brown and white bakers twine. 

Happy Crafting!

Your wreath is so pretty. I love the natural elements - the burlap and grapevine wreath and even the eggs. Those eggs look so real.
