Upcycled Plastic Easter Egg Wreath



I didn't realize how close Easter is --  I better get busy.  I was going through last year's decorations when I came across my plastic Easter egg wreath.  I like how it turned out, but, as my daughter would say, "That, is so last year!"  While gluing some of the eggs back on, I got an idea.  What if I just painted it?



What do you think?





This is what it looked like last year.





I really like it and think I will keep it in kitchen for a while.  Now, what am I gonna use for Easter?

Here is where I get my Party On......
