DIY Easter Egg Wreath Just in Time for Spring

 
That Spring feeling is definitely floating in the air these days. With the temperature pretty consistently above 50 degrees, the streets are lush with blooming daffodils and the tulips are beginning to show their colors. Spring always carries a certain excitement. That promise of warmer days, colorful flowers, BBQs and a lot less layers of clothing. Because of this dreadful, dreary winter, I've been more excited than ever to welcome Spring. If I'm being honest though, that March and April edition of Martha Stewart Living has always made my blood run wild with hope, optimism and the joy of unexpected surprises.

This season of Lent has brought more doing and less consuming into my life. Forever inspired by some glue and some glitter, I picked up some more paper mache eggs from Jo-Ann Fabrics along with a kit of spring glitter and then I successfully wondered around the store for 30 minutes trying to decide what I would do with the eggs once they were glittered. Of course the very last place I looked and voila! I found this twiggy little wreath.

Find out how to make your own Easter egg wreath below.
