Making an Easter Wreath

Sunday, March 15, 2015

I made a very simple Easter wreath for my front door this weekend.

I started with an old oval picture frame, an unfinished cross and two floral stems of forsythia.

I found some old hymn books at an estate sale and tucked inside one was a loose tattered page of "Have Faith in God" so I added it to the cross. (I'm not sure I could have torn a page out of the hymnal.)

I glued the pieces in a rustic patch work pattern.

I wired the forsythia into place and tied the cross on with jute.

After Easter, I can disassemble the wreath and re-use the parts in new projects.

It's fitting that we celebrate Easter in Spring, at the time when new life comes forth.
Jesus conquered death on the cross that we might have new life through Him.

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
Anyone who believes in me will have eternal life. For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 
John 3:15-16

Wishing you God's best,

  1. I like your cross idea for the wreath,thanks Elaine.

  2. I love this idea of using a picture frame as a wreath. That is something I never thought of. It makes a great impact on the door and you only used a few items. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Such a clever idea to use a picture frame! I have a couple of Forsythia wreaths. Love them for spring! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
