Last Minute Easter Wreath

Easter has really snuck up on me this year.  With a week to go, no eggs have been dyed, no menu planned, no Easter baskets purchased, and no decorations to speak of.  This afternoon I decided I needed to do something, so after 15 minutes of goofing around with my glue gun I came up with this wreath!




I started with an old forsythia wreath that I've had on our door during spring the last 3-4 years.  I think I got it on sale at Joanns for $10 or so.

I thought some eggs might add a nice Easter touch, so I stole a few of Stella's plastic eggs, and found some scraps of ric rac.  I wanted to cover up the little line where they open to make them look a little nicer:

I cut strips of ric rac (ribbon would work great too!) long enough to wrap around the egg and then hot glued them on:

I love the extra pop of color from the ric rac and it kind of makes them look like decorated eggs:

Then I just put a big dab of hot glue glue on the back of each egg and pressed them into the inside edge of the wreath.  So easy!
