Wood Slice Easter Egg Wreath {and Blog Hop}

I might as well call this Easter week around here… as today I have another cute little Easter craft to share with you: this Wood Slice Easter Egg Wreath Wall Décor… This may be my favourite Easter project so far… though I did really love the Easter Bunny Bunting that I shared with y’all yesterday. And, of course, I have one more project to share with you tomorrow. I wonder which one you will like best??

Wood Slice Easter Egg Wreath 5 at The Happy Housie

To make this I used:

– Wood Slices (you can buy these at some craft stores but my husband cut these for me using some branches from our yard and his mitre saw)
– Glue gun and glue
– Scissors
– Ribbon (I used this beautiful chevron patterned ribbon in blue and pink as well as some burlap ribbon – both from MayArts)

I started by arranging my wood slices into an egg shape and decided to go with three layers, overlapping the wood slices as I went. I used my glue gun to glue the middle layer of overlapped wood slices to the bottom layer.

Then I continued and glued the top (or third layer) to the middle layer. It was super quick and easy to do…

I let it set for a few minutes, and worked on the bow.

I’m not going to lie to you. I pretty much suck at making bows. I kind of fumbled my way through the whole process…. using loops and cutting and gluing… until it all came together in some semblance of order. I must thank my crafty lady friends for helping me out with my bow-crisis. So I can’t offer you any photos of this process because, at any point, I was convinced it was all going to explode apart on me.

Here is a little verbal explanation instead, supplemented with some post-crafting photos… just in case you struggle with bow-making as much as I do.

I used hot glue and made my bow in parts. No sewing.

I created the top part first by creating a loop (Loop 1 in the picture) using the burlap and two layers of ribbon and attaching them together at the back with glue. Then I made  a smaller looped piece (Loop 2) and hot glued it around the middle of the larger loop to cinch it together. The sides of the bow were folded in to create that fun little double bow look and attaced together using a few dots of hot glue.

The long loose ends are just two separate pieces of burlap/ribbon layers that I glued directly onto the wood slice wreath behind the bowy-bow top loopy part.

Okay, so I hope you get the idea… it was a little traumatic for me but I was desperate to make a beautiful bow because the ribbon from MayArts was so stunning and really deserved to be shown in all it’s glory. Good luck with yours. I only almost cried twice and burned myself 17 times with my hot glue gun. Minor injuries when the results are taken into account…

I pretty much love it and am thrilled to have it as the centerpiece of our dining room gallery wall. The other day when I shared our new dining room rug I was careful not to show too much of the rest of the dining room… but here you can have a little sneak peak at it.
