Carrot Easter Wreath

easter-wreath

You guys are well aware...it’s a little known fact that I love making wreaths and surprisingly I have never made an Easter wreath!

I really wanted to make the carrots pop, so after I spray painted the wreath white, I got started making my carrots.

A few months ago I shared this Owl Leaf Wreath over at Darice and today I thought I'd share it with you guys in case you missed it!! Fall is officially here and one of my FAVORITE times of the year.
