My wreath for Easter and Spring

Love LOVE this time of year. Beautiful weather which makes my kids want to play outside and ride their bikes for hours and hours! I also love seeing all the flowers and trees in bloom. I just love all the beautiful bright colors that come along with this fabulous season. When I was thinking about the type of wreath I wanted to make for spring I of course wanted something bright and cheery that would reflect this time of year. I have always adored the color blue which is still my all time favorite color. Yellow however, is becoming a close second. So I knew I had to incorporate that as well. Also if you know me or have been reading some previous posts you will know that anything chevron print is a new obsession of mine. So  I wanted to add in as well. Adding the bubble gum as an element of this wreath well, that was a random thought.  However, I think it was sparked by seeing all of the Easter egg wreaths in the stores. Yea weird I know but I think it inspired the look I wanted my wreath to be. Which was very clean simple and modern. I couldn't be  happier with how this wreath turned out which was exactly how I had envisioned!

                           
             



I bought this tub of gumballs at Walmart . However I ran out and had to buy some more. I used about 45 more gumballs which I know that these can be bought  in bulk to as little or as much as you need like at Winco ( a new favorite grocery store of mine!) if you didn't want to buy a whole other tub.I however just bought another tub because my kids LOVE gum and this is a great reward for them.


The size of this styrofoam wreath form is 16". It was super easy to glue these gumballs to the wreath with my glue gun. I just made sure to press each gumball down firmly so they would stay.


Loving the Blue Ocean Breeze spray paint by Krylon. The perfect blue for Spring! I want to use this color for so many more things! It coats great. However I still had to put about four coats of paint to make sure I covered all the gumballs completely.



For my fabric wreath hanger I just used an old white sheet that I had and I cut it to 6" in width. I used masking tape to make the chevron print than painted it with this butter cream color acrylic paint. Worked out great! When the paint had dried I used my iron to press down the sides so that had no frayed edges and it helped to give the wreath that nice clean look.

  6. Oh this is so cute! That's so creative using gum balls. And I love the yellow chevron and that color spray paint. I recently made a cake plate and used that color spray paint. I decided I could spray paint my whole house that color because I just love it.

    I would love for you to share this at my link party, either this week or next Tuesday

  19. I absolutely love this! I have made an acorn wreath before but it took a good amount of time collecting each one--how smart to simply buy a jumbo size container of gum balls!! I really love this and the colors go together perfect. I may be trying this myself, thank you for the amazing idea :) Have a great week!

  58. So cute!! Can I ask how long it last? I think the plain gumball before painting would be fun for a party but the other is classic. I was just wondering if i tried it should I use gumballs or somthing else. Thank you! It looks great!

    1. Thanks! My wreath is still doing great. I had coated the wreath with a clear protective spray so that it would last longer. I think mine will last for another couple of years :) That would be cute for a party just leaving it with the bright colors too!

  59. Adorable! My only quandary would be using hot glue for a wreath that will be hung outdoors. I did this many years ago and when the temp got too hot the glue melted. Likewise my friend made a wreath for Christmas with hot glue and it got very cold out and her ornaments fell off. Maybe hot glue has improved since then.
