It all started when I scored a huge amount of plastic speckled eggs on a garage sale site. I bought 10 boxes of 16 for $6. I knew I HAD to make an egg wreath for next year. Eight months later, I finally got to use them...
I hot glued eggs to a styrofoam wreath form and then I took some burlap ribbon (the kind with rough edges) and shoved it in between the eggs to fill in any major gaps. It looks like grass from a nest.
I found the blue milk can at the Habitat for Humanity Home Store for $1, the green wire basket at Goodwill for $1, the burlap is a random scrap.
The candle holders are both consignment finds for less than $5 each. I painted both with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and distressed and waxed. The boxwood topiaries are from save-on_crafts.com. They were a splurge for me, for sure, but are very beautiful in person and will get a ton of use. Warning: This website is super addicting! I just hope my Hubby doesn't read this and go see how much they actually cost vs. what I told him ;)
