My Entryway is Ready for Spring

Good morning! It’s March! And Easter is at the end of the month! I don’t like when Easter is so early. It just seems too soon and then it’s a long time until summer. Plus it’s too cold to wear a cute little summery dress for Easter. 🙂  Have you done some spring decorating? I have done a little. Mostly my entryway and living room. Lauren had a jewelry party at my home a week ago, so I spruced everything up! It’s nice to look around and see the cheerful spring colors.

I keep my same basic pieces here-my door table, the beach striped stool, and the green picnic basket. Then I change around the accessories.

I really like the soft colors of spring. It really brightens up the house when outside may be rainy and gloomy.

I added some speckled yellow and blue eggs to the lantern. I also placed some moss ones at the bottom to fill it up a bit more.

I found these cute little eggs a the 99 Cent Store. I love the turquoise and gold! By placing them under a cloche, it makes them seem more special.

See the little egg next to the bird? It’s an real bird egg. At our old house, we had a lot of trees, including a huge, old oak tree. We would find bird’s nest and eggs quite often. This one happened to survive the fall to the ground.

Of course, I had to add a bunny! It’s Easter! This one has such as sweet little face. I used a moss green blanket in the basket and it’s the perfect background for the bunny.

I am ready for spring! Not only my house, but myself too!  For your convenience, I have included some links below for similar items. Have fun decorating for spring!

Cute and Simple Easter Egg Decorations

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful week!  I am reposting this because I found that you can still purchase these items or similar items.  Enjoy!

So, this project started when I was walking through the 99 cent store.  And to be honest, I love shopping at the 99 cent store.  I can go and buy dog treats, Arnold Palmers, lunchables, spatulas, mixing bowls, and stuff for your car all in one spot.  It’s like a lesser version of Walmart!

While shopping through the 99 cent store, I came across some Styrofoam eggs that could be used for decorating for Easter.  And then I saw some smaller eggs on Kabob sticks.  And I thought, what if I put the smaller eggs in the larger egg to make an arrangement?

And then I bought the supplies!

I bought two of the bigger eggs, one package of bigger eggs on sticks, and two packages of the smaller eggs.

I split all the eggs into two separate piles.  There were four big eggs in each arrangement and ten smaller eggs in each arrangements.  I knew that the biggest problem was going to be the long Kabob sticks.  So as I went along, I broke off the sticks to make them shorter and easier to stick into the large Styrofoam eggs.

And here are the end results.

So…I’m not completely happy with how they turned out.  I like all the colors worked together, but it didn’t go exactly as planned for how the eggs looked once they were in the giant eggs.  I had a completely different idea of what they would look like when they were done, and this isn’t what I had in mind.

But other than that, it was a very simple project to do for Easter.  I only spent $5 creating this, but you could spend a little more if you wanted to add more egg Kabobs (or whatever they are actually called), go for it.  This is what I made with what I had, but I might go back and buy more egg Kabobs to fill in the arrangement.

Creative Easter Eggs!

I AM SO SORRY FOR THIS BEING LATE TODAY!  WE HAD NO INTERNET YESTERDAY SO I COULDN’T UPLOAD UNTIL NOW!  PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGY!

So, Easter is coming fairly soon (April 16th to be exact).  And of course, what is the number one thing that people think of for Easter?  PEEPS!

No, just kidding. It’s the Easter eggs.

And don’t you think that most Easter eggs are boring?  They are just a single color, for the most part, with nothing creative.  So here are some ideas for how to have more creative Easter Eggs!

Supplies you need are eggs, glue, glitter, ribbon, acrylic jewels, and any other things that you think you want to decorate your plastic eggs.

So I started with a pink egg (obviously).  It is very simple and I knew what I wanted to do on the egg.

I took my glue and drew my own design in it to cover with glitter.  I decided to draw a sun with some other designs like dots and swirls.

Next, I went with a yellow egg.  This one was going to get a very simple makeover.  I decided to use my pink ribbon to add something to the egg.

Finally, I went with a green egg that has white polka dots on it.  So, it is a little more creative.

Easter Egg Green Before

So I decided to add a little glue to each dot and bedazzle it!  Is that super obvious for me?  Here is the first one I did before I covered the egg.

So here is the finished eggs in a cute Easter basket!

I love how they turned out!  They were super easy and it only took about 10 minutes for each egg! I did have some trouble with the green egg because while the glue was drying, the jewels slipped into a different spot.  But, they still look pretty!
