Easter Ruffle Wreath

Posted on March 18, 2012
Hi, Everybody! I hope that you all had a great weekend and that the weather is just as beautiful where you are as it’s been here in New Jersey! It feels more like the beginning of summer, not spring here! I’m loving it! I realized that Easter is just three short weeks away… time to get started on some Easter decorations! I’m so excited to share my Easter Ruffle Wreath with you today, and teach you how you can make your own!

EASTER RUFFLE WREATH
TUTORIAL
 ..
For this project, you will need a wreath form (I didn’t have one on hand, so I cut one out of a piece of cardboard!), some burlap and two other different colored fabrics (about 1/4 yard of each), a little nest, three faux eggs and some ribbon! And don’t forget your glue gun, of course! First, prepare your fabric strips. You will need three different kinds of fabric, you can pick whatever kinds and colors you like. Cut them into 2 x 8 inch strips. Begin making your ruffles by taking a strip of fabric, folding it over and creating layers and bunching them together in the center. Glue each ruffle down onto your wreath form using your glue gun. Continue making ruffles and attaching them to the form, overlapping them slightly, as the picture shows, and cover the whole wreath with the ruffles. Now, use hot glue to stick the eggs inside the nest, then using hot glue again, attach the nest onto the wreath. Now pick some ribbon that complements your wreath and use it to make a bow and to hang your wreath up! Here are some more pictures of the wreath…

I hope you are inspired to make your own wreath, and customize it to fit your taste! I love the neutral colors I used, and they fit perfectly into our living room! And the best part was… I already had all my supplies and didn’t have to go out to buy anything! The fabric was all scraps I found in my craft room and I already had the ribbon, eggs and little nest!
Have a great week, Everyone!
Happy Crafting!

    Ahhh- I love this!! I am going to make one- I had been looking for a wreath that was cute and didn’t take a ton of time. This one is adorable. I also think it is a great idea to use the cardboard. The space between my door and screen door is pretty shallow so I that will work perfectly for me!
