Egg Wreath

I am in love with these egg wreaths. 
They can be found at Pier 1, Target and Pottery Barn.

But a $40 price tag also accompanies these circles of plastic and grapevine. 

So a trip to the dollar store for an 18" wreath....
(which is WAY bigger since the stores sell a 12",  as shown above!)

and a trip to Marshall's where I bought 2 boxes of these eggs at $6 each...

I heated up my glue gun and ended up with this 2 hours later....

If my kids would have left me alone, things would have gone a lot quicker...
Unfortunately, they insisted on helping with "Mommy crafttime"

Lucas carefully chose which color egg would come next, and held the egg while I applied the glue. 

By the end of the day, we had completed our creation.

What easter/spring crafts are you working on?

I think your wreath looks AWESOME! I am loving the new blog D.
