Hit or Miss – Easter Basket Wreath

by Alli

This past weekend I decided to try my hand at an Easter Basket Wreath that I had seen on Pinterest and you can find the inspiration for my wreath and all the directions by clicking here!

The first thing you will notice when you visit the website is that their wreath and mine looks totally different.  I couldn’t find some of the products and I took several easy routes.

The directions for making the wreath include cutting a 14″ wire wreath frame in half.  My basic craft wire cutters refused to cut through that heavy wire.  And then I thought, “Why don’t I leave it as it is and make the top half the handle and the bottom half will remain the basket?”  Then I squashed in the handle part so that it would look more like a basket.

Once I cut the chicken wire, (you may want to use heavy duty gloves) and fashioned it into the shape of a basket around the bottom half of the wreath, I was ready to insert the burlap.  Instead of tying it all off, I just inserted bits into the hexagons of the chicken wire to hold it, kinda like I did with my fall burlap wreath, found here.   It worked for me and was so much more simplistic.

I really loved how my wreath turned out!  It was a big hit (at least to me)!  Well, I may buy some more eggs to add to it because I bought one pack, intending to buy two, but I got distracted by the 4th of July products that have already filled several aisles at Hobby Lobby.  And then I forgot to go back to the egg aisle.  Oh, well,  it’s all good.

I really enjoyed making this Easter Basket Wreath.  It was fun, easy and my patience didn’t run out before I was done.  And that’s a good thing!
