A Little Easter for Ya

We don't usually decorate for Easter around here.

We're Easter-Scrooges. Especially since it's been SNOWING so much lately, it really doesn't feel like spring or Easter.

Very Sad. (With a capital S)

But, I decided to push those dreary thoughts to the back of my head and bring out some of my Easter decor.

I found these sparkly eggs at the $1 spot at Target. My first thought was to hang them up in our tree in the front yard...but snow sort of put a damper on those plans.


I used my twine and hot glue to cover some styrafoam eggs and then some plastic camouflage eggs I found at the $1 Store. Who makes camouflage eggs? Strange.

 


This lovely birdhouse and stand I found at GW. I didn't do anything to the stand but clean it, but I did remove a lot of fake vines and flowers from the birdhouses and gave them a good paint job.


Here's a before:

 Another after:


All together now!


I took some extra sparkly eggs and a twine egg to add to my spring cloche.




Oh, I'm totally diggin' the sparkles. Perfect for Easter!

  5. Love it, girl! I have almost the exact same birdhouse set. I haven't performed surgery on them yet, but I guess I better get to it. It'll be time for Fall projects before we know it! :-)

  6. LOVE the sparkly and twine eggs....too cute! We had big plans for Easter decor and pre-Easter fun...but we got too busy decorating the nursery and none of it happened. Oh well. We're celebrating the REAL reason for Easter and that's what matters.
