DIY | Dollar Tree Easter Wreath

Hi Lovelies!

Being that I am home with my daughter during the day while Max is at school, I find myself itching to release some creative energy. I have always loved DIY projects but kind of just used to pin them on Pinterest and forget about them.  Now that I’m home I find myself with a bit more time on my hands so I take the opportunity to experiment. It’s great to see what works for me and what doesn’t.. (Iron on decals for t-shirts are totally NOT my thing, lol.)

I am literally obsessed with watching Youtube videos on how to transform Dollar Tree pieces into beautiful décor for my house.  There are so many people doing these and I honestly didn’t even know it was a thing! So, again since everyone’s style is different I love to tweak them and put my own personal touch to them. 

This project cost me exactly $10 and about 45 minutes to complete from start to finish! Both are a plus for me, because let’s face it; I get tired of décor pretty easily and & Easter will be over in a few weeks and I will be on to the next!

Here is what you will need:

7– Packs of eggs (Your choice, I went with the glittered eggs)

1– Floral Garden Metal Wreath Ring (14.25 in.)

1– roll of burlap

1- Pack of Reindeer Moss

Hot glue gun & glue sticks

Step 1:

Take your wreath and wrap it in the burlap all around so you have surface to attach the eggs.

Step 2: 

Create a loop in order to hang the wreath by gluing both ends together on the back.

Step 3:

Begin with the middle row of eggs. I made sure they were all facing the same directions & alternated the colors in the same sequence they came in the package. Once you are done with that row, you can begin the next. I went with the most inner row and my last one was the most outer. All personal preference on how you would like to glue them on.

Step 4: I checked all of the eggs to make sure they were stuck on nicely & added more glue anywhere it was needed, whether it was on the bottom or the sides. I even put some glue in between the eggs to make sure they were secure.

Step 5:

Last & final step, I took the reindeer moss and placed it in between all of the eggs to make sure the empty spaces were covered and it made it look more full.

Ta-da! There you have it, your very own Easter egg wreath! I would love to hear some feedback from you guys! Let me know how it went, how long it took you, send me pictures! I’m down for it all!

Here is my final product, I’m obsessed with it! I plan on storing it well enough so that I can reuse it next year!

Honestly, DIYs are like therapy for me. It brings me such joy when I nail it and a lot of laughter when it ends up a hot mess. Life is too short, try the DIY, you may just surprise yourself. 

Until next time- your girl,
