Hey there, friends! I wanted to share my super-simple Easter wreath I made using the same chalkboard I hung on the front door last month. I love this thing! It’s so versatile. Adding stain to the frame really helped give it that rustic look I was going for, too. Since I really like the look of boxwood on a chalkboard surface–and I already have a small boxwood wreath from West Elm–I was in business!
All I had to do was loop some burlap ribbon through the wreath, then I brought the ends together and folded them over to make it a little thicker.
Then I just stapled this flap to the back of my chalkboard frame.
I freehanded “He Lives” on the inside of the wreath. Although I love decorating with chicks and bunnies for Easter, too, I’m trying to keep the real meaning of the holiday in mind when I make decor this year. (Here’s a quick note on using freeze-dried boxwood: don’t keep it in direct sunlight. Since our front door is most often in the shade, I can keep it there, but if your door heats up in the sun, this may be a project you’d just want to put on your mantel or something. You’re supposed to spritz this kind of wreath with water every once in awhile. I confess that I never have and it’s holding up beautifully without any care, even after more than a year.)
So that’s it! So simple, right? Here are some other spring crafts you may like:
