Happy Monday everyone! Continuing on with my Easter theme and sharing my new door/wall bling today… an Easter Mesh Carrot Wreath.
Supplies for an Easter Mesh Carrot Wreath
This is a pretty easy project, but I promise you it’s gonna look like a hot mess for a little bit. Have faith and it will turn out ok!
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.
Then wrap the sucker in cling wrap.
Like really wrap it until it feels pretty secure.
Next you’re going to use the greenery pins to completely cover the form in orange mesh.
Pretty soon it will look like below.
Now it’s time to add your final orange layer of small “bubbles” to the wreath form. Fill in the top with your green “bubbles” keeping it kind of behind the orange layer. 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…
If you remember my Christmas sun room décor, I made this little wood background to go above our TV hutch to display my wreaths. The Easter mesh carrot wreath just hangs on here with a Command Brand hook. Super simple.
And I love how this is something a little different than your normal Easter wreath. I’m going to hang this eventually on the front door… ya know, once the snow melts.
I love how the mesh shimmers too in the sunlight.
Yep, I think this is one of my favorite wreaths to date!
