Easy Whimsical Easter Wreath

The frigid cold had me feeling more than a little lazy this weekend, but John and I still went out for brunch on Saturday morning as usual and I was able to do a little thrifting.
I’m never too lazy for that. lol.
I did find some good stuff, which I’ll share later, but I didn’t find anything to inspire a pink project. So Sunday afternoon came and I still didn’t know what I was going to make for this week’s Think Pink Monday project.

Scarf Easter WreathUntil I started looking through my stash, and I found everything I needed to make an Easter wreath.

First was the scarf.

Well you had to know another scarf project was going to show up sometime.

I haven’t done one in awhile.

I found this gorgeous scarf before Christmas and I had to have it.  I knew if would be perfect for a project some day. Look at those colours!! They definitely say Easter to me.

So I had this 10″ wreath form, and then I remembered the $1 bunny couple that I thrifted last Easter.

Aren’t they sweet?

They’re made out of bass wood, are hand painted, and as light as feathers.

I went to put the laundry into the dryer, and I came back to discover Pixie had decided she liked the scarf too. I have to say that it is very soft and cozy.

Once Pixie was finished napping, I wrapped the wreath with the scarf and simply pinned the two ends together at the back.

Easy peasy.

I hung the wreath on the chicken wire with an unfolded paper clip.

Then I added the bunny couple with fishing line.

I simply tied the fishing line around their necks and then around the wreath.

I adore this colourful bunny couple, they’re so fun and whimsical.

 

I’m really loving the barn board frame that I put together in my master bedroom. It’s so easy to change things up for different occasions, and the chicken wire makes it easy to hang things. I’m planning to make more versions of this for other rooms.

I decided not to go with a bow this time. I kinda like the frame as is.

Crafting with scarves is one of my favourite things to do. They do most of the work for you, and you get so much bang for your buck. Literally one buck… and sometimes even less

Here’s another look at it. I moved my book birdcage from my dresser to the table beside my settee. I think it just looks better there.

It was a beautiful bright sunny day yesterday with a wind chill of -37(C). To say it’s been cold here is an understatement.

During these frigid days I need fun and whimsical things around me to remind me that spring and summer are not just figments of my pink imagination. lol.

Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
Think Pink!

  1. Love the scarf projects! This wreath screams Easter. Love it Tuula! And I love how you can change up the chicken wire frame with the seasons. Perfect!

  2. My first reaction was…what a beautiful cat you have!!! I do love cats. Have 2 myself. But on to the project! LOVE it! You have me looking at my scarf collection with a different eye! I've been avoiding the whole chicken- wire-in-a-frame thing for years. But you've sold me. A SMALL one!! I've seen it before on your posts, but for some reason, today I really SAW it! Thank you, girl! You've inspired me! Dona

    1. Thanks Dona! Pixie is a real sweetheart. We have 3 other cats too, and they all like to help me out from time to time. lol. If you make a chicken wire frame I don't think you'll regret it. It's also really easy to change the backing of it too if you just apply something with tape or a few staples. Mine has a white feather boa that I'm still loving. It's just applied with 3 staples along the top at the back of the frame. So easy! I'm so glad I've inspired you!

  3. Pixie-approved Easter wreath. Why am I always surprised when you do something amazing with a scarf. The Bunnies are hung by there necks!?!

  4. I love the way you use those scarves. Genius. This Easter wreath is adorable and fits in perfectly with your bedroom! As much as I love winter -37 is just nasty. We are in a warm weather pattern right now so I will tell our winds to blow your way.

  5. Cute wreath! THANK YOU for showing me that I'm not the only one that gets to 'enjoy' cat participation in projects.

  6. So cute and fun, my friend! I love how you are using your framed chicken wire for every holiday – such a sweet idea! And your kitty is darling!

  8. I just have to echo every other commenter's sentiments because it's true…the wreath is truly beautiful and very easy. Wouldn't take more than 5minutes. I love easy projects!

    Do enjoy the rest of your week.

  9. Adorable, Tuula! And the bunny couple adds an air of sophistication to your whimsical wreath! I like their expressions! Sorry I'm late seeing this but Blogger just posted this to my site – a whole day later.

  10. I love the versatility of this piece, Tuula. Too cute…
    I am surprised that you haven't ripped that blue off of the chenille pillow! LOL
    I don't begin to know how you ladies deal with this frigid cold.
    Sending sunshine your way!

  11. You didn't think for one second that the scarf wouldn't have a cat snuggled up on it the minute you set it down, did you? I really love the chicken wire frame and your Easter arrangement is gorgeous!

  12. I'm a scarf nut, I always have at least 2 on between September and May, but I never would have thought to turn one into a wreath!! Your's looks perfectly Easter ready. I love it!! I'm thinking I'm gonna have to find a scarf like that for my kitty, lol.

  13. Hey there lovely lady! Just dropping in to let you know this pretty wreath has been featured at Rose of Inspiration – thanks for sharing it with us 🙂 Hugs to you!

  14. Cute pink project Tuula. The scarf worked out perfectly! Very spring looking. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

  15. Gosh you are busy! Just found you whilst blog hopping. I need to thankyou – I never thought of using scarves for fabric, but you're right they are so inexpensive. I have no fabric shops nearby but the local shopping centre has a small scarf concession, I will definitely consider that next time I need fabric for a project 🙂
