Easter Wreath–Dollar Store updo



Say it isn’t so!  I took some dollar store colorful eggs and a dollar store grapevine wreath and hot glued them together.  You’ve seen this wreath a million times.  It’s cute and colorful and really just fine on it’s own, really it is!  However, this year for some reason, I’m just not feeling that colorful.

I’m feeling more earthy and natural with my décor.  Maybe because the kids are getting older and don’t care so much about cute and colorful things.  What ever the reason, I decided to tone this wreath down by painting it Sage green.

Then I added some reindeer moss from the Dollar Tree to deepen the earthiness and make it feel less like eggs on a wreath.

So now it’s starting to match my mood a little more.  I finished it up by adding some sage burlap.  I wanted it to be simple.  Some little rolls of burlap tucked into some openings and fringed out, and a simple sweet bow.

Viola!!  Another dollar store updo. 





Thanks for stopping by.  I’m working on getting my Easter mantel up and hope to have it posted soon.  Hope you’ll come back and see it!
