Easter Wreaths

I love wreaths that are a "Where's Waldo" type look. Last Halloween I took all the leftover stuff I had and turned it into a wreath and it is just perfect! I also did it with a bunch of tiny Santa's at Christmas.
Here is an Easter wreath with all kinds of fun stuff on it!

My friend Paige from Arizona, made this darling wreath - I have included her notes at the bottom of the picture of how she made it.

Basically it started with a straw wreath that I already had in my craft supplies, I hot glued yellow and green Easter grass around the wreath in about 6" patches, alternating, along with a couple swaths of a 2 1/2" wire Easter ribbon I had already. Then I cut the stems off of white & pink tiny flowers I got for $1 each at Walmart, alternated them around the circle - 6 stems each color. I cut the flowers off a purple (??? - maybe hydrangea?) and glued them around.

I did a search for "vintage Easter graphics" and saved 7 of them to my photos file and printed them off in wallet size. I spaced them around, glued in 6 or 7 small plastic eggs I got at Walgreens, made "chicks" out of yellow pom-poms with orange felt beaks and Google eyes. I found tiny little ducks at Fry's grocery store and used them, too.

I had some 2" straw hats in my craft cupboard so I added in 3 of those, and hot glued a ladybug button on each. Finally, I had a package of 3/8" pearl beads and I just added in about a dozen of those for effect.

This is a Peep's Wreath...the lights are peeps lights. I attached them to a wreath in bunches then covered them with tulle. The pictures really don't do this wreath justice, it is fun in person. There are also mini eggs here and there under the tulle.
