Use your Easter Wreath as a Display!

Most people display wreaths vertically on a door or wall. This unusual idea, however, demonstrates another creative use for your decoration-in-the-round! It was born from my need to display a grouping of sweet, spring ornaments. But, this design would be just as beautiful on its own or using some-thing like Easter eggs too! Since my ornament collection consisted of little animals, dressed up in their spring finery, I decided to create a tiny, flower-dotted forest. The following are the directions so you can create your own little bog:

on one side of a grapevine wreath, glue preserved green moss. Cut single stems of silk spring flowers, at varying heights.  With a touch of glue on the (non-flower) end, insert each stem into the wreath. Fill in between & underneath the flowers with faux baby’s breath or other tiny silk flowers to create a lower floral element as well. Space your ornaments (if you have a collection to use) equal distances apart. Keep them in place by using a tiny touch of (low temp) hot glue or tack-it gummy temporary adhesive (sold in office supply sections of most stores). This design idea would also be adorable stretched vertically along a fireplace mantle as a garland!
Another Option: consider featuring something in the center of the wreath, like a large candle, apothecary jar (full of glittery eggs or an Easter house on basket grass), etc.
Enjoy the Creativity!
