Are you looking for inspiration for an Easter Wreath? This rustic Easter Wreath is inspired by what is happening in nature at this time with spring and new life beginning. This wreath uses moss, with a rustic natural wrapped wreath form, featuring an origami paper butterfly and decoupaged eggs.
This an indoor wreath, and a lot lighter in feel than Christmas wreaths that I often make with natural foliage and flowers. The wreath may not stand up to wet weather if hung on an outside door but of course with spring beginning the weather is warm and sunny all the time- no?
To make this I wrapped a polystyrene wreath form with hessian tape and pinned it in place. Then I wrapped it in some pink ribbon and then I pinned some natural moss in place. I decoupaged some small polystyrene eggs in decoupage paper and glued them to the moss. I then had to add extra pins to the moss beside the eggs to hold the eggs down a bit.
I made an origami butterfly with some small paper and pinned it with two pearl headed pins to look like a butterfly’s antennae.
I made a false bow with some green satin ribbon and hung the wreath with some more gingham ribbon.
I think the overall effect is fairly simple but effective. Working with moss was a first for me, I like the freshness and different texture that it brings. The different greens are beautiful too.
