It's that time of the year again... no, not Christmas... Easter!! :) I love decorating with bunnies and sheep and chicks and using pastel colors everywhere. So to start with my Easter layouts, I went with the Doodlebug Easter collection from last year, called Hippity Hoppity and I mixed in a few little embellishments from other collections and from the basics.

A wreath design is always a good choice when you want to use a ton of embellishments. This layout came together pretty fast, since I only needed to find the embellishments that I wanted to use and basically create a circle with them.   I mainly used stickers and die cuts from the Hippity Hoppity collection. I decided to give the eggs and little characters more dimension and interest to make them stand out more by stitching patterns on them with embroidery thread. For the little characters, I used my Distress Oxides to give them cheeks and a colored border. 

I also distressed the edges of the characters, I just love that effect. To start the wreath, I placed the big eggs and characters on my prepped patterned paper. You always want to start with the bigger embellishments and then go smaller and smaller. I adhered them to the page using foam squares and foam tape.

Then I started placing my middle-sized embellishments... the smaller eggs, flowers and leaves. I tried to fill in the circle being careful to create a perfect shape. Next I added small embellishments like mini eggs, tiny flowers etc. just before adding the final touches, the enamel dots.

When placing the super small objects, I tried to fill in any gaps that remained to keep a perfect circle. 
I also used the enamel dots in the center of the flowers, to decorate some eggs, and I used tiny black ones on the eyes of the characters.  For my title, I went super simple. I used the Abigail and Sunshine alpha stickers.

I love creating wreaths, they are super fun to make and as I said, you can use a ton of embellishments, which I really love! I hope you were inspired to start your Easter projects too. I look forward to the new spring collections from Doodlebug, I can't wait. :)

See you soon...
