Although I have some flowers on my front door for spring, I found myself still wanting to make a wreath. This is a great recycling project and fun for kids! I made flowers from a couple of egg cartons. With Easter coming up, there should be a good supply of egg cartons available! You just cut the egg cartons into flower shapes. They should look like this:
After cutting out all of my little flowers, I painted them in nice, bright spring colors.
While those were drying, I cut out a wreath shape from cardboard.
I painted it spring green.
For the center of the flowers, I cut little circles from brightly colored fabric, felt, and scrap paper and hot glued them on. I also added some buttons.
The next step was to hot glue all of the flowers onto the wreath form.
I went around the entire wreath, gluing the flowers on, trying to not put too many of the same color too close together.
Here it is with the fresh eggs sign …
And here it is framed (I think I like it this way best).
Of course, it’s cute all by itself.
