Spring Wreaths

Only a few days till Easter Sunday and we are having family over for Easter lunch.  Time to bring out the springtime décor!

My girls and I had fun making Easter wreaths with chalk paint, a glue gun, some burlap ribbon and, of course, dyed Easter eggs. 

Ella and Sophie enjoyed blowing out the eggs over the kitchen sink and dying them, while I put a quick light coat of pink on the plain wreath we had purchased at the craft store and even painted a few eggs with it.

Ella carefully used the glue gun to attach the eggs and we made a bow with the ribbon. 

Voila!  Our own personal Easter wreaths that I will treasure for years to come...

Here they are with the rest of our Easter mantel. 
Ella grew the grass last month from seed for our "Haft Seen" table (this is the Persian holiday celebrated on the first day of Spring).  
This, added to my children's crafts they have made through the years and a few family pictures make it a personalized Easter mantle. 

All ready for Sunday lunch.  I only wish it would actually start to warm up in Maryland so it would actually feel like spring!
