|our DIY Easter wreath: glitter applied by my kids, rhinestones hot glued by me|
Last year we made a St. Patrick's door hanger out of a placemat, so I thought we'd do the same for Easter this year.
What we used:
Egg shaped ornate placemat - JoAnns Easter section
Jumbo gold glitter - JoAnns
Mod-Podge or any craft glue
brush and disposable mixing container
Mod-Podge Clear Acrylic Sealant Spray
Rhinestones, pearls, glitter glue or glitter paint
Yarn, cord or string for hanging
Fancy ribbon for a bow (optional)
Hot glue gun
In a container mix glitter and Mod-Podge. Paint the placemat with glitter and glue mixture. Let it dry and cover with another coat of glitter+glue mixture. Spray with Clear Acrylic Sealant. The weather was warm, and we did this craft outside. Warning: Mod-Podge Acrylic Spray stinks!

Also, last week we tried stamping with handmade foam shapes using glue+glitter mixture to decorate our Leprechaun trap. Sadly, Leprechaun got away, AGAIN :(

Edit: woops! I guess this is technically not a wreath but a door hanger.
