I utilized the same technique for the Easter napkin wreath as I did with my Valentine napkin wreath found here.
I did do something a little different with this wreath...I utilized a swim noodle from the Dollar Store for my wreath form. I hot glued and taped the two ends together...making a wreath form! Much cheaper...$1!!! The Easter napkins were purchased @ Dollar Tree (I used 5 packs of napkins on this wreath)...so this wreath was VERY AFFORDABLE!!!
I also wanted a cute banner to go along with my Easter wreath for the mantel. So, I decided to make an Easter egg banner. I used paint chips to make my banner. My husband works part time at a paint store...so, this was easy to obtain! Here is a close up of the banner:
To create the banner:
- I made an egg pattern on some cardboard by using a large serving spoon (due to its "egg shape").
- I then picked a variety of pastels (20). I traced and cut out the "egg shape" on each paint chip. I used each paint strip to make 2 separate eggs...one in the light pastels and one in the darker pastels.
- After cutting each "egg shape", I began spacing and hot gluing them onto twine that I cut for the banner.
- I had a few too many...so I made a flower out of some of my extra "egg shapes".
I love the finished product!!
And, another view of the Easter Mantel:
What do you think? Isn't it amazing that all of these decorations are made from things that are fairly inexpensive and/or FREE!! I am in love with the napkin wreath...SO EASY and SO CHEAP to create! I thank my pinspiration pin @ Today is my day...Easy Valentines Napkin Wreath for this amazing idea. I've now created two awesome wreaths due to her tutorial!
