DIY He Is Risen Easter Wreath

Well since it is March I figured it was time to finally take down my Christmas wreath and replace it with something new. So I decided I would make an Easter wreath to celebrate this special time of the year. 



   Here is what you will need:

  • glue gun/glue Sticks
  • styrofoam wreath base
  • vintage broaches/flowers/embellishments
  • burlap ribbon (2-3 inches wide) 
  • moss ribbon
  • baker's twine
  • mini clothespins
  • alphabet stamps/ink pad
  • two sewing pins
  • ribbon/tulle

To start your wreath the first thing you need to do is wrap the styrofoam base with the burlap ribbon. I added a little bit of hot glue to the base and attatched my ribbon. After that I just wrapped the entire base until it was covered and hot glued the end so that it would stay in place. Then I did the same with my moss ribbon at the bottom of the wreath. 

So now is the fun part. I glued various embellishments onto my wreath. You can really do anything and put things wherever you think looks best. I found some really great packages of fabric flowers with vintage looking broaches at Michaels. Then I added a tulle bow to the top of the wreath to hang it from. 

Now for the letters. I got two sewing pins and placed them across from each other and tied a piece of pink baker's twine to them. I used a scalloped circle punch and punched out circles out of scrapbook paper scraps and stamped He Is Risen on them. Then I hung the stamped circles on the twine with mini clothespins. I tried other methods and this turned out the best and the cutest. 

And then you have a beautiful wreath to celebrate the Easter season! 

He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay.
