Easter Wreath- Dollar Store Eggs

Easter Wreath- Dollar Store Eggs

EASTER WREATH This wreath was simple and inexpensive  to make. I used a 40 percent off coupon from Micheal’s to purchase the wreath. Then I used some eggs that I purchased from the dollar store, I adhere the eggs with my trusted hot glue. I didn’t have any nice ribbon so I used left over  gift  ribbon which was also purchased at the dollar store.

I have never been able to achieve it without divers. Now I can scoop out a pink bra no problem without having to dig for it.  It may not always stay arranged by color but at least it’s easier to find them. I also purchased them for my underwear; they are arranged in containers of darks, pastels, pattern and one for impractical.
