Easter Mesh Carrot Wreath

Happy Monday everyone! Continuing on with my Easter theme and sharing my new door/wall bling today… an Easter Mesh Carrot Wreath.

• Straw wreath
• Orange mesh & green mesh (got them 50% off at Michael’s)
• Greenery pins
• Knife
• Plastic cling wrap

So you’re going to start by chopping the straw wreath (still wrapped in the plastic) with your knife. I cut it into 3 even parts, then cut one of the pieces in half again (so basically 1/3, 1/3, 1/6 and 1/6). Form like below with the two larger pieces on the outside and the smaller pieces on the inside. And yes, this will get messy.

Like really wrap it until it feels pretty secure.

And lastly add a little loop in the back to hang (I just used an extra piece of mesh rolled tightly and pinned it to the back of the wreath form).

And your final piece will look a little something like this…

Yep, I think this is one of my favorite wreaths to date!

Easter Fabric Scrap Chair Ties

If you saw my Easter kitchen décor post on Monday, you may have noticed the fabric scrap chair ties. They were seriously my favorite part of this mini holiday makeover, plus they basically cost me only $6 to create!

There were 10 colors total in the fabric scrap roll so I just tied them onto the twine in a pattern using 2 sets for each chair (20 ties total).
