This Upcycled Easter Door Decor is one of the easiest thangs I've ever put together, y'all.
It's also a part of the Thrifty Style Team series this month.
Every month, I'm fully aware that my monthly Thrifty Style Team series is coming...and *usually* I get behind and have to scramble to create something for the series (honestly, I do my best creating when I'm rushed, but it's still nice to actually be prepared every now and then). This month, I actually got it together. I grabbed the outer part of this wreath at a thrift store well before Valentine's day...and knew exactly what to use it for (don't you love it when that happens?). So, believe it or not...I was actually prepared this month! I have to say, this is probably the simplest tutorial I've ever done...it's like one step, y'all. Check it out below...along with lots of fun projects from my bloggy friends.
I purchased the metal part of the wreath at local charity gift store that I frequent. They had all of their Easter items out well before Valentines, so that worked out great for me (I'm in the middle of a self-imposed-no-spending-on-crafts-or-decor-month...glad I grabbed this last month!). I had the yellow wreath on hand, already. I purchased it on clearance right after Easter, last year at Big Lots (five bucks...yeehaw!). I loved that the yellow polka dots on the metal piece perfectly coordinated with the flowers in the wreath. It's also got a little rusted patina on the edges of the egg!
Seriously, I didn't do anything fancy here...I simply put the metal egg on top of the wreath and tied it together with some twine. No cutting or gluing or anything.
The twine I tied the two items together with worked as the hanger for the entire piece, too.
It turned out so bright and cheery!
Don't you just love what you can stumble onto in a thrift store?
Below are a couple of my other Easter thrift store finds.
I found, what I affectionately call, my "bag o' bunnies" at a Goodwill a few years back. It was a gallon-sized Ziploc bag filled to the brim with miniature, ceramic, white Easter bunnies for like a buck. Ever since then, I seem to spot little, white, ceramic bunnies at lots of thrift stores. They're always like a quarter a piece. Some have paint on their eyes and ears, but I've often just spray painted them glossy white to keep them all consistent (or even just left them, if it's subtle).
I actually filled them in all throughout my built-in shelves. Bunnies everywhere!
One of my other favorite thrift store finds was a bag of ceramic eggs at the Salvation Army...for fifty cents! These are heavy ceramic eggs, too...and each one is a different pattern and color. I buried them in a little moss here on my pedestal in the entryway.
Do you hunt for holiday decor at thrift stores, too?
