 1. Wrap the wreath in raffia and add a length of sequin ribbon. Secure at the back with hot glue.

2.  Push the eggs onto the wooden craft sticks and paint with the chalk paint.

3. Add speckles with the Bark Brown

 4. Tie together with twine and glue to the ring.

 5. Add a twine bow and glue the wooden mushrooms to the centre of the ring.

 6.  Glue short pieces of twine below the mushrooms . Add dots of white foam clay to the tops of the mushrooms. Then paint another 3 eggs as before and glue to the opposite side of the wreath.

7. Add a double twine loop at the top for hanging.
