I got my Easter decor up last weekend. The only thing I am sad about is that Easter is so durn early this year. What is with that? And if I know myself, and I think I do, the second a holiday is over I get this overwhelming urge to take down all of said holiday’s decor. That means I will not be able to enjoy this for very long this year but still, always worth the effort, right?
First of all, I LOVED my rainbow boards from my St. Patrick’s Day mantel. So I thought I’d use them again for my Easter mantel. I only had to paint three of the boards and voila! Instant Easter colors.
I had this cute egg topiary and egg wreath that I got at, I promise, a grocery store about 8 years ago. I think an 8 year old grocery store purchase is allowed a little makeover, don’t you? So I did what any self-respecting crafter did and I spray painted the heck out of those things. I wanted something crisp and white to go against those boards and this was my solution.
My baker’s twine eggs were a perfect addition to what I had going on up in here (pronounced hee-yah).
I also added one of my Etsy Easter boards, reused the white flowers from my St. Patrick’s Day mantel, added some polka dot ribbon and I was done!
It’s beginning to look a lot like spring!
PS I am actually writing this live, here at 3:30am since I just got back from the Hunger Games movie and am completely wired. It was. so. good. WOW. I can’t even pick a favorite part! Jennifer Lawrence was the perfect choice for Katniss. End of story.
