A Spring Wreath

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon some brown tulle begging to be used. You see, the original owners of this tulle only saw one use for the beautiful decoration. I saw many possibilities and, therefore, dug it out of the trash can. A friend Kari saw me with these huge mound of tulle and challenged me to make something with it. Thus, my first brown tulle creation. And Kari, you can spray paint plastic easter eggs!

Easter's On It's Way!

Greta,

I LOVE IT! Can you speckle the eggs with brown paint? I never thought about painting easter eggs!

YOU ARE FABULOUS!!!

smiles, kari

How cute that is. You are re-using it which is fabulous for our planet. No brown tulle in the landfill!!!! I like Kari's idea of brown speckles. Would give them an antique effect and match the color of the tulle!

I love everything brown. Whenever I think about it I laugh and remember all the brown appliances, couches etc. from the '70's. In 30 years are we going to look back and think everything we have now is ugly? Great job!
