Spring Decorations – Finally!

16 04 2011

Since Easter is next Sunday, I thought it was about time to fill in the empty space on my mantle. The Mr. T says the mantle doesn’t have to be perfect the first year in this house, but I’m not sure he’s right.  I don’t think it’s finished, but I like what I have so far.  I’ll try to make sure I give credit for all the ideas.  I try to mark them in de-lic-ious when I find them.

First up is the wooden sign.  No credit to be given because this is mine.  I found the quote from Robert Frost online and thought it made a cute sign for the mantle. I used contact paper for the relief image and then colored vinyl purchased from Expressions Vinyl for the sun, wind and April.  I had to outline the words with sharpie when I was finished because I couldn’t see them very well.

Next is the  felt chocolate bunny.  I got the idea from ______ (I’m still trying to find the post.)  I made a few for my teacher friends at school and put a sign on them that says 100% fat free chocolate bunny.  They make me smile.

I also made some Spring scrabble tiles – idea from Under my Polka Dot Umbrella. I LOVE these!!!

And last but not least, the big wooden bowl I mentioned in my last post is finished with some crinkly brown paper and my Spring eggs.

Since I went with more Spring than Easter on most of this, it can stay up past next week.

I’m working on some new “upcycled” Easter baskets.  I hope to have them posted this week.  Our Spring Break starts Wednesday afternoon. YEAH!!!
