Spring Grass Easter Wreath–Guest Tutorial

33
Hello CSI Project readers! My name is Courtney and I blog over at A Diamond in the Stuff. It’s really exciting and such an honor to be guest posting here!!!

 
Today I’m going to share my Spring Grass Wreath with you guys today! After all, what is Spring without a beautiful wreath to adorn your door?
 

I started out with a square of grass from Hobby Lobby.
I cut out the middle section, making a grass "frame".
Next I grabbed a couple bags of plastic eggs, also from Hobby Lobby.
I opened them all up and placed them on my "painting board". Nice huh? They all got a good coat of primer and half were painted cream with the other half getting painted light blue.
The eggs needed some speckles so I mixed up some brown paint and water. Using a paint brush I "flicked" the paint over the painted eggs.
I glued all the finished eggs to the grass wreath, alternating colors as I went. Trying to be "random" is sometimes hard for me; I can be a little OCD when it comes to my projects.
I added a nest to the corner and placed one of the speckled blue eggs inside. A painted butterfly is sitting perched on the side of the nest.
As you can see, I took a picture frame and painted it the same blue as the eggs. I hung the grass wreath to the blue frame with a bit of muslin tied off in a bow.
So there you have it, my new Spring wreath! It reminds me of an Easter egg hunt.
A BIG thanks to the lovely CSI girls for giving me the chance to post over here today. Please stop by over at A Diamond in the Stuff sometime and say hello!

  1. i can’t believe those are just plastic eggs! I’m definitely going to try this one– thanks for the great idea and beautiful step by step photos!

  2. Loved this so much I went right to Hobby Lobby but I couldn’t find the grass. I talked to the lady in the floral dept and she had no idea what I was talking about. I looked in the Easter section, too. 🙁 Have you seen the grass anywhere else?

    Great job, Jen–it’s just too cute!

  3. Thanks for the info, Courtney! (and sorry I called you Jen–I had just scrolled up above the comments for a name and didn’t go all the way to the top!) 🙂

  4. This is an adorable idea! I wish I had a Hobby Lobby close by so I could snag some of this grass!

  5. I clicked on the link Courtney mentioned but it;s not there anymore. I also went online to Hobby Lobby and it’s not there. Anyone else have a site or location? live in NJ, but De is close to me , also. Really love it. I have the frame, the eggs- just waiting for the grass.

  6. This is super cute. I had to laugh when you said you don’t do random well. I don’t either – it’s tricky sometimes, but your wreath looks great.
