Easter Wreath {Tutorial}

I've been a really bad blogger lately, and an even worst crafter.  Life has just been crazy with my work, Jer's school, and such.  Now that things have settled for the moment...I am back!  Ready to craft for Spring and Easter and share with the two or three of you who are so sweet to read The Telelporting Toddler.  I {heart} you!

I was in the mood to make an Easter wreath while spending as little cash as possible.  I have been wanting to make the cute wreaths I have seen around with fabric scraps, so here is my Easter version...

You really just need a coat hanger and some cute, fun, "springy" fabric scraps.  I added a couple of more embellishments, but it isn't necessary.

Bend the coat hanger into an egg or oval shape.
Cut the fabric scraps into strips about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long.
Cut enough strips to fill your hangers.  I used about 1/4 yard of each of the four fabrics shown was plenty for the basic hanger I used.
Begin tying the strips of fabric to your hanger with a simple knot.
Alternate the different colors of fabric as desired.
Keep tying until the coat hanger is full.  Fluff and shape into an Easter egg shape.
I found a cute little bunny pick at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.  I just broke off the pick, ran some ribbon through her ears, and hung her in the middle of the wreath.  I added a big tulle bow on top....tada...a cute super easy Easter egg wreath!  I did the whole project while watching Grey's last is that simple and quick!

  2. That is so adorable! What a brilliant idea. I have a rag wreath on my door right now but it's not in the shape of an egg. I love the oval shape and the beautiful colors of yours.

  3. I've made these for Halloween and Christmas and this one is cuter than those by far! Thanks for sharing!

  9. VERY impressed that you took the time to cut all your strips with pinking shears. didn't your hand hurt? i always take the easy (nonpainful) route and use my rotary cutter.

    Love the Egg shape.
