EGGcellent Ways to Decorate Your Front Door for Easter... and a fantastic giveaway (valued at $349)

Disclosure: I received compensation from Schlage for including their lock in this post; however, be assured that the opinions expressed in this blog are 100% my own... and I know you are going to love my new DIY wreaths.

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I love to decorate my front door for the holidays. So, with Easter just around the corner, I have TWO new DIY wreath projects to share with you. I also have a fantastic giveaway (worth $349), so make sure you read to the very end.



The first project I have for you is an adorable burlap bunny made from embroidery hoops. I absolutely love the simplicity of this one, don't you?



To make a burlap Easter bunny from embroidery hoops:

1) Use strong tape to attach the smaller hoop to the larger hoop. (I used electrical tape because it is a little bit stretchy.)

2) Insert burlap into the hoops.

3) Trim the burlap.

4) Use hot glue to attach a ribbon to the neck (and hide the tape).

5) Cut ears from burlap, and use an elastic to create ears.

6) Use hot glue to attach ears to the bunny.

7) Use hot glue to attach a twine hanger, flower embellishments, and a pom pom tail.


Isn't my burlap bunny adorable hanging on the interior of my home?



And here it is hanging on the outside of my front door.




I also made this colourful Easter egg wreath from plastic eggs I purchased at the dollar store.




To make a plastic Easter egg wreath:

1) Use hot glue to attach eggs to the exterior of a wreath form.

2) Use hot glue to attach additional layers until the entire wreath is covered.




Doesn't my Easter egg wreath look great hanging on my front door? I love the way the bright colours contrast with my black door and satin coloured hardware.




Both of my new wreaths look fantastic with my new Schlage Encode handle (which is not only beautiful, but also functional). The smart, keyless entry is perfect for my busy family and my three boys (who are now sometimes coming home without a parent). 

No more worrying about whether the front door is locked. With a Schlage smart lock, you can enjoy peace of mind and freedom from keys. And, with the Schlage Home App, I can even receive a notification once my boys get home from school. It's so easy!



And... I have some great news! Schlage Canada has offered to give one of their Schlage Encode locks to one of my readers (in your choice of style and finish). This prize has a retail value of $349! Pretty awesome, right?
Just fill out the form below to enter.



I hope you take the time to enter this fantastic contest... and I encourage you to try making one of these easy and inexpensive Easter wreaths for your home. You'll be glad you did. Happy Easter!

  15. I like both wreaths but the plastic egg one is my favourite. I wonder how much cost for the total project?

    1. I can't remember exactly, but I think I used 3 or 4 bags of eggs from the dollar store. I don't remember how much the wreath form was (as I had it in my bin of craft supplies), but if you worried about cost, you could use some heavy cardboard or foam core cut into a circle. The eggs are light, so it should work.
