I am gearing up for this Saturday for my annual Easter party. The kids are so excited. In preparation for our fun filled morning, I have been busy revamping some of my easter decorations. I thought I would give you a peek at what I have been working on. Most of the projects are using things I already had, so very little money was spent which I love.
This sweet bunny went for hot pink to white and mossy.
I sprayed him white and then stuffed him full of moss. SO much better!
These plastic eggs were the target of my next transformation.
I used gesso applied with a pallet knife to add texture. Then I painted, glazed and speckled the eggs. They are perfect nestled in a white wire basket with moss. You would never know that they were once colorful plastic eggs. If you are interested in how I painted the eggs, you can check out a similar tutorial I did for these eggs.
I next attacked two over sized lime green eggs. I found them at the thrift store for 80 cents. When I bought these wonderful eggs, Annika (my 4 year old) questioned what we were going to do with them. There always has to be a skeptic! Ha!
Here it is one all covered in moss. So much better.
And the last one I covered in chalkboard paint and made it into a cute topiary tree. I love my chalkboard pens, they are so fun to work with. Thanks Dad and Mom
I love easter trees. This one has been around for a number of years, but it is always getting tipped over. I went on a mission to make it stable. Sorry, I forgot to take a before picture. I combined the tree with a metal container and some moss. I love how it turned out. I painted and glazed the container, added a piece of wood for height and covered the whole thing in moss. Quick, easy and stable. I’m so glad that I don’t have to crawl under any furniture this year looking for missing eggs!
Now I just have to get the rest of the house ready for the party. I love crafting and get lost in it. However, there comes a point when I have to put down my paint brush and glue gun and get cleaning. There will be 17 kiddos running around gathering eggs and dying eggs on Saturday do you think they will notice if I don’t wash my floors
