We had the most productive weekend ever. There’s something about having warmer weather and more daylight that makes me want to get things done. It’s hard for me to sit still when the sun is beaming through the windows. We have been working hard on the porch makeover (pics coming soon!) I topped off the makeover with a little fun and easy DIY Carrot Wreath for Easter. I’ve always loved carrots for Easter decor. Does anyone remember when my blog logo used to have the carrot in it? All of my flowers from last year are making their way up! I have been documenting all of it for a future blog post. It’s truly looking and feeling like spring here, especially with all of the blossoms on the trees. Since the flowers are so colorful and happy, I’ve decided to match them up with some decor. Don’t mind the baskets by the door. I’m going to put trees in them, but I’m trying to find the right ones!
Our porch has gotten a complete makeover. From the concrete color, brick color, removal of the railings, furniture, rugs, and more! I absolutely love this $14.99 wreath from Homegoods. I plan to leave it up on my door most of the year! I wanted to give it a little Easter makeover without ruining it completely and making it an Easter-only wreath. The good thing about hot glue is that it peels right off when you need it to. Once Easter is over, I’ll peel these right off. Or if you want to use it again next year, just store it! The best thing about Hobby Lobby is that the holiday decor is ALWAYS 50% off. I picked up some cute cloth eggs and twine carrots for the wreath. I wanted to keep it simple because the carrots added enough color. They have all kinds of Easter decor for wreaths. If you like colorful speckled eggs, they have a bunch! Before you start gluing the pieces, lay them out on the wreath to make sure they are where you want them. It’s easier to style them before gluing them on. I added about a dime-sized glue drop on each to make it easier for later removal. Let the wreath dry for about 30-minutes, and then you can hang it up!
I love how it turned out, and it only took about ten minutes to make.
Questions for you!
- What do you like to decorate during the spring?
- Are any of your perennials coming up yet?
- Do you change out your front door wreath several times a year?
