Vintage Easter Wreath

I took a class last night at The Emporium at Thanksgiving Point....

We each received a box full of goodies to make our Vintage Easter Wreaths with....

We started with a wire wreath and some vintage Easter cards printed on cardstock 

I sat next to this cute lady who was blogging the event from Today's Mama  


She and I happily muddled through our projects...the ladies from Thanksgiving Point were great helpers!

The burlap strips are great fillers....first we glued them to the back of the wreath and then ripped them off and ended up tying them onto the wire wreath....burlap seems to be the new see it everywhere now...

Baskets full of easter grasses were readily available...

Thanksgiving Point provided delicious cookies and bottled water...their oatmeal raisin cookies are to die for...I know.  I had two!

This was the Emporium's first time doing a class like this...they originally planned for about 20 slots and ended up with 49 adding a second was worth it...lots of crafty women turned out to play!

Here we are at mid-point...they give you all kinds of options in your little box of things to add...glittery eggs, shiny butterflies, toille in sparkly pinks, creamy ribbons and I also learned how to make a tissue flower and a little nest out of newspaper...I definitely got my craft on in spite of hot glue gun burns...part of my flesh is on my wreath....literally!

And here's the end result....pretty dang cute don't ya think? 
So Happy Birthday to my sister Laurie...this is for you babe...but we are making MORE because I want one for myself!
