Pottery Barn Inspired Spring Wreath

Oh, how I love making Pottery Barn knockoffs!

This project I entered in So You Think You're Crafty, 
knockoff round, and I LOST! 
Such a bummer

Anyway, this project was easy and free to make!

Leaves or Branches

First I took some of my chicken eggs, and blew out the yolk. Then washed them and let them dry. I sprayed them with blue spray paint, and let that dry. I took a little bit of black paint and spattered it on the eggs. 

I picked a few leaves and branches from my yard and placed them around the wreath.
Then I made a little next out of the moss and stuck it on the wreath. I kinda placed it so it wouldn't fall over by putting some of the branches around and through it.

Free              $49.00

It was a fun inexpensive project , and I love that I can reuse the wreath too!

Yours looks exactly the same! I wouldn't even know which was the original if you hadn't told us. I love it! :)

You did such a good job on your wreath! I actually think yours looks better than the Pottery Barn one.
