Square Grass Wreath

My beautiful Spring Moss Wreath was moved inside and placed on my mantle. I love it there, but now my front door is naked again. What’s a crafty girl to do? Ah yes, make another wreath!  You may of seen this post over at The CSI Project last week. Just in case you missed it, here ya go:
I started out with a square of grass from Hobby Lobby.
I cut out the middle section, making a grass “frame”.
Next I grabbed a couple bags of plastic eggs, also from Hobby Lobby.
I opened them all up and placed them on my “painting board”. Nice huh? They all got a good coat of primer and half were painted cream with the other half getting painted my new Spring favorite, Peakaboo Blue by Krylon.
The eggs needed some speckles so I mixed up some brown paint and water. Using a paint brush I “flicked” the paint over the painted eggs.
I glued all the finished eggs to the grass wreath, alternating colors as I went. Trying to be “random” is sometimes hard for me; I can be a little OCD when it comes to my projects.
I added a nest to the corner and placed one of the speckled blue eggs inside. A painted butterfly is sitting perched on the side of the nest.
As you can see, I took a picture frame and painted it the same blue as the eggs. I hung the grass wreath to the blue frame with a bit of muslin tied off in a bow.
So there you have it, my new Spring wreath! It reminds me of an Easter egg hunt.
I’m going to try and keep this one on my front door!
Linking up to these great link parties!

    @ Sue: The frame is a 11×14!
