Easter decor

I can't believe we have our air conditioning on in the first half of March! This is so rare. We've had temps in the 80s for a few days, and its here to stay for atleast several more days. So I do believe Spring is Here! It was time to finish my Easter decorations.

First I updated my front door wreath. I wrapped a styrofoam wreath with multicolored yarn and hot glued a springy green flower on the front - super easy! And under $10!

Then I gave my dining room table some love. Featuring my first ever no-sew table runner! I made this last fall and had put it away during the holidays. I am so happy with my choice of fabric; I even had enough leftover to make this memo board! To make the table runner, all I did was fold in an inch on each underside, place stitch witchery inside the fold, and iron away...on all 4 sides. Voila! When I made it last fall, I added a bowl of green apples to it for some fall decor, but at the time, I had no idea how well it was going to work with my spring decor!  It was so easy that I'm tempted to make one for every season!

The bunny/wagon is an heirloom from my grandmother. And the smaller figurines are from my husband's grandmother. The centerpiece I crafted this afternoon.

*Important update: after posting this, I found out from my aunt that not only was this my grandmothers bunny/wagon, it was made by my great-grandmother when she took a ceramic class in 1969! Her initials and the date are carved in the bottom! So maybe I got a little of my artsy/craftsy side from her!

I used an almond colored Krylon spray paint on an old glass vase. Then hot glued Hershey's robin eggs onto sticks I collected from the front yard. The ribbon I had on hand in my craft stash. Total cost of paint + candy~ $5 (vase and sticks I already had).

Its the same idea I used for Halloween where I glued candy corn onto sticks.

And for Christmas where I glued tiny ornaments.

Once I find something that works well, sometimes I go a little crazy with it!

Happy Spring!
