Spring Grass Easter Wreath–Guest Tutorial

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!

    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.

    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.

  7. This is exactly why I love to get home ideas from bloggers! Plus I have always wondered how to make those speckled eggs! Last time I tried doing eggs that way they turned out just horrible. Really super cute! Thanks bunches!
