I am Madigan from Madigan Made. I’m a 30-something working gal who lives with my hubby and pup in the northeast. I love to write about simple home decor and craft projects on my blog. (with the occasional easy recipe sprinkled in for good measure!)
When it comes to crafty equipment, I love my sewing machine, my crafty cutter and my paint brush. But I have to say, two of my most versatile tools in my tool box are my glue gun and a can of spray paint. Today, I wanted to share a project that uses both of those.
If you have never been to my blog, you should know that I love painting objects white.
I think that white paint can unify decor and make old items look more modern. Most recently, I painted the inside of my apothecary jars white to simulate the look of milkglass. You can read more about my
addiction ode to white paint in this post..
For Easter, I wanted to make a simple, big white wreath with eggs. I raided the dollar store for cheap plastic eggs and they worked perfectly. (Side note: I have to confess that I initially tried to make a white wreath out of malted milk balls, but that turned into a huge mess!)
This egg wreath needed a little something more, so I added "ribbon". Yes, if you look closely, that is NOT white ribbon wrapped around the wreath. It is dry wall tape instead! Sometimes a girl’s gotta get creative with materials!
Here is how I made this wreath:
I tried using traditional ribbon around the entire wreath, but it did not look quite right to me. I’m so glad I saw the dry wall tape on our workbench. It was the perfect solution! I love how the dry wall tape does not completely obscure the eggs but adds another layer of white texture to the wreath.
This wreath is a simple and big statement. It will be perfect for our front door this Easter.
It always amazes me what a little hot glue and spray paint can do!
