My cravings for variety have led me to volunteer at a school. I tutor a 17 year old student from China (1st year in America) in English and U.S. History, type study guides, handout tests and quizzes, organize everything from tests and materials to alumni outreach, supervise high schoolers as needed, create bulletin boards and decor, and a multitude of other random (I just love that word) tasks.
So, when February ended, it was time to come up with something to replace the festive little hearts that adorned our classroom door. One day, while rummaging through the cheap bins at Target, I came across colored egg wreath for only $2.50. As can be expected with a 2 Buck wreath, it was small, boring and looked, well, cheap. I knew...if I really thought about it, I could jazz it up.
Pink Feather Boa
First, I cut a piece of scrapbook paper into the shape of the wreath, only slightly larger. Then, I drizzled glitter glue on each egg, to add a little pizazz. Next, I created a bow from matching sheer ribbon, stuck a butterfly sticker in the center for an extra spring touch, and added a piece to the top as a "hanger". For the last step, I wrapped a pink feather boa, and Ta Da...we have a fancy, modern Spring wreath.
For added effect on the actual door, I added some Spring decals that I bought last year at Target. As you can see, my next project needs to be fixing the door at the school. :)
