I have dusted off the box labeled Easter...and slowly pulled out my creations. I made these items a couple years ago and still when I pull them out, my chest swells with pride. I had seen a display like this is Pottery Barn and almost hit the floor on how much they were asking for their pieces. So, I had set out...frugal and with a master plan. I used grapevines from my mom's vines that she prunes back every early winter and saved them for a occasion just like this! And thank goodness I had picked up the flocked eggs at a craft store that was going out of business. I picked up 2 huge bags for a song. I stored them away (to my hubby's dismay) but I knew they would come in handy!
Bought a new glue gun and glue and set out. I rough sketched on how I would do the wreath first. I started to make all the eggs go the same way and just not the look I wanted. So, pulled off and DO OVER! Finally got what I was looking for!
I picked up these apothecary jars at a Ross that was closing for 4 dollars for the whole set! I know...I grabbed before some other frugal bargain hunter came by!
And the topiaries, were no joke. It took me a bit but finally got everything right. I painted the Terra cot ta pots white and shaped the green foam with a sharp knife. And even spray painted my moss more green. And then the job of hot gluing. Many spots of blisters later a finished project! I sat there beaming like a Cheshire Cat, proud as pudding for doing not one but TWO! Now they sit as a pair every Easter!
