Bright & Cheery Easter Wreath

Make a Bright & Cheery Easter Wreath for less than $15 @ Huddlenet.comI just turned Pandora on to listen to while I write this post and who do they have singing? The Bee Gees.. a little Staying Alive on a Saturday night? I think so!

Speaking of staying alive… That’s rather perfect for an Easter wreath, don’t you agree? Spring is the time of renewal, new life and counting blessings.

Let us lighten our hearts because we know that all things are possible through Christ.

1 Peter 1:3-5 – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time”

This wreath will brighten my door and remind me of all that I have and I will have. Happy Easter to all.

Everything for this wreath can be purchased at Walmart (2014) for less than $15. I paid about $9 – I already had the wreath form & ribbon. You can easily make your own flat wreath form from a heavy piece of cardboard. You can also use a Styrofoam wreath.
