Cabinet Door Easter Wreath

I needed an Easter wreath for my front door. I decided to make my wreath with fabric and I added it to an old cabinet door. Seeing this on my front door makes me smile. It's a happy welcoming sight.
I will now show you how I made my wreath. You will need to start with a Styrofoam wreath form. I decided to make my form since I had some Styrofoam on hand. I created my wreath by tracing bowls to get the size I wanted. I cut it out with an exacto knife and then wrapped the form with ribbon.
I then gathered some fabric scraps and ripped into strips. I then took the strips and glued them to plastic eggs. I started at one end of the egg, glued the fabric to the egg and then wrapped the fabric around the egg and glue it. I continued this process until the egg was completely covered. I used regular sized eggs and small eggs to create my wreath.

Once I had all of my eggs covered I glued the eggs to my wreath form.
I even added ribbon for a fun variation.

I then took an old cabinet door painted it blue and then added my wreath to it by drilling a small hole in the cabinet door and strung ribbon through the hole to hang from my door. I then added a bow to complete the wreath.

I love how springy and bright it looks. And I love it on the cabinet door.
