I know I had this at least one Easter at my old house, so I’m guessing I made it in 2002 or 2003. I get lots of comments on it and lots of people asking if I made it, so I thought I’d give you a quick how-to.
Most wreath forms are on the narrow side, and you’ll want this bulked up. I hot glued 2 straw wreath forms together. I *believe* mine are 6” and 12”. Play around with them at the store until you find one that fits perfectly inside of another.
Use LOTS of hot glue.
I used 2” wooden eggs, like these. My wreath used 74. There used to be a crazy old craft store in town that sold bags of 50 and I got mine there. Then I painted them with regular old cheapy acrylic craft paint. Once they were dry, I hot glued them to the wreath and then sprayed the whole thing with a clear sealer.
Next I took more hot glue and filled in the gaps with Spanish moss.
(Be warned that this step could lead to your front window being shot out by a neighbor kid with a pellet gun, but that’s a story for another time.)
