April Wreath

easta1aI got a carried away with my April ‘Wreath of the Month
When I started making the wreath base by twisting newspapers and forming them into a circle it looked kind of oval shaped. Mmmm, Then inspiration took over and instead of fixing it and making it a nice and round, I kept it and finished making it into an egg shaped base. I really liked the way it looked.
I painted the base in light blue and light green to help give more color to the Easter grass and to hopefully lessen any gaps or thin spots the grass may have.

I had a great deal of fun making the pom-pom critters. It reminded of an Easter when my son was a toddler. I made pom-pom chicks for all my nieces and nephews. The kids really loved them.

I crocheted the little flowers and added a pearl bead for the center.

For the eggs, I had some left over plastic ones from years past. I thought they needed a bit of glam so I took some gold trim and hot glued it around them.

It was an easy choice to add a bow in yellow gingham. It’s kind of like the sun shining above the bunny & chick enjoying an Easter celebration.

This wreath is about 14 inches tall and bigger than my other wreaths.

My husband likes it alot. He says it looks like an Easter window display for a store.
My Bff loves the wreath and said, it’s the cutest wreath she’s ever seen.
I personally am pleased as peaches with it. πŸ˜‰

What do you think? Is my wreath too busy or about right?

Wishing you all sunshine and joy all month long.
Happy April!

  1. I think it’s just adorable! How perfect to have the oval shape….reminds me of an egg…! Your crocheted flowers are precious too, and I love the colors. Sweet that the pompom bunny and chick brought back memories of your children’s younger days; those memories are always bittersweet, aren’t they?

  2. This has to be my favorite so far! The lovely spring colors make it just right for Easter. You’re full of the most adorable ideas! I think the pom pom chicks are like one my daughter made in grade school; it used to go on the Christmas tree every year πŸ™‚

  3. I think it’s perfect! Did you end up with Easter grass all over the place? πŸ˜‰ The animals are adorable, your crochet flowers make the perfect meadow, and the sunny yellow bow shines.

      You know, oddly enough, I had very little grass-leavings get away from my work area. I’m glad because Shelibean would have grazed til he got his fill and that may have been bad. πŸ˜‰

      I think you’re right. I thought about it and perhaps Santa Claus will lend the Easter Bunny his sleigh and magical suit this year. Imagine a big bunny in a santa suit sliding down your chimney and hiding eggs all over your house… and then following Santa’s traditional routine he lays a finger aside of his nose and up the chimney he goes. lol
      Sending warm thoughts and wishes your way. πŸ™‚
