Easter Wreath

We had a very lazy Sunday, which allowed me to work on some projects. I found really cute tulle in yellow, pink, and light blue at Goodwill last week and figured it would be perfect for some Easter decorations. 

First, I wrapped a straw wreath from Michael's in white satin ribbon.  I wanted a little sheen under the very see through tulle.
I then hot glued the three colors of tulle.  I kind of gathered the tulle so the color would show through.
I wrapped it around and just hot glued every so often to keep it secure.
Once all wrapped, I hot glued the end and placed a pin to just hold the tulle.
I had found these eggs at Michael's and had them in mind for another project, but the colors were perfect for this.  
I decided to wrap it around the wreath two rows at a time. 
My husband actually came up with this idea. I didn't want the back of the wreath to be bulky and didn't want to waste eggs on the back, so he asked me for a piece of yarn and came up with this.  I still hot glued the egg to the wreath, but the yarn allows me to not have to cut the string of eggs and acts as an extra support.  Can I tell you how sweet is was to see my husband working on this wreath. I think if he sees this post, he will not be too happy. 
Here's what the back looks like.
Here it is.  
The top loop looks a little different from the others, but let's just say that was intentional.  Cute, eh?  I'm hosting Easter brunch this year, so I gotta get some decorations going. I have nothing in my big old box of holiday stuff.

Love the wreath. I really like it in the sense that it's different. It doesn't have bunnies and flowers all over it. It's unique :)
