Please, please feel free to take the look of my wreath and run with it yourself! I love helping people find their creative side, and hope this inspires you, too!!
First and foremost, you should not use the green floral foam wreath forms!! While I was researching the project, I came across someone who used a floral foam wreath and it broke into pieces after they finished! Oh, I felt so bad for them, but they were able to glue it back together!! Phew... So, that's why I started with a white Styrofoam wreath (about 8"). I wrapped it with white 2" ribbon. I don't usually wrap my wreaths with ribbon, though...
So, my supplies were:
1. An 8" Styrofoam wreath
2. 2" ribbon to wrap the wreath with, if needed
3. Chick Peeps (I chose to use all of the Peep colors: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple, but you can be monochromatic if you'd like). I bought about 20 packages of 5 Peeps chicks. The bunnies were in packages of 4, and the chicks are in packages of 5!! So, that's why I decided to use chicks instead of bunnies... Also, I had approximately 4 packages left over.
4. Glue gun & glue sticks
5. Ribbon for hanging
First, I wrapped the ribbon around the wreath where I wanted to make the hanger, and I glued it in place. I glued the chicks facing the same way in rainbow order on the face of the wreath. Then, I glued the chicks on the outside of the wreath, trying to match up the order on the front of the wreath. Next, I glued the chicks on the inside of the wreath, again trying to match up the color order. I chose this pattern because I didn't want any of the white marshmallow stuff to show... Last, I tied a bow around the hanger part of the ribbon. That's it!!
Let me know if you made a wreath for Easter or Spring.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!
