Simple Easter Craft and Decorating Ideas
Hello Foxy Friends!!
If you follow me around on various social media sites, like Instagram & Facebook, you might have heard me mention the Marshfield Vintage Market. It’s a local event that started last year and I was lucky to get to be a part of it! It went so well, it’s being held again, this March 28th & 29th. Jim and I were invited back, and we’ll be participating again, yay, so we are busy creating, crafting, making, picking & painting!!
I know a lot of you have had tons of snow, (I’m so sorry) but we have had sun, sun & more sun! Which is crazy awesome. I’m going to cry when all the rain starts, I just know it. All this sunshine is spoiling me!! It’s also got me feeling the pull of Spring so strongly. I want to decorate for Spring & Easter, make pretty crafts, and get my hands in some dirt!! But pulled I am, because my top priority after my family, has to be show prep. We have so much to do to get ready and to ensure we have enough product for the two day show. We came home with hardly a thing last time, and I think this show is going to be even bigger now that people know what it is.
That leads me too this post. I wanted to share some Spring with you, say “hello” and check-in. I thought I’d share some of my favorite Spring-y and Easter projects, in case I don’t have a chance to get my bunny on this season. And I love my bunnies, so I better figure this all out, clone myself, or come up with some way I can do everything, and still have time to decorate.
Oh, you can also follow me on Pinterest! Because while I might not have the time to be creating and sharing a ton of new content on the blog right now… I’m still pinning and swooning over the season and I’ve got some fab stuff saved! I know it’s all about balance, and sometimes with this blogging gig, I’m still finding mine.
The aqua paint was fun, but you know I love change. I’m surprised the chalkboard paint has lasted this long. Probably because it goes with a lot more than aqua. Even with nothing chalked on it.. there is a great complexity about it. Very shadows & light.
I’m sure you’ve seen this idea elsewhere by now, but in case you haven’t. Spray paint, a branch & some Dollar Tree eggs create a pretty darn cute trifecta.
This is another super low-budget decorating idea, and involves one of my go-to craft basics. A tin can! You can re-create a look similar to this on a shelf, buffet or dresser top as well!
One of my favorite printables, is the fluffy cute bunny, on burlap!
Last year was all about sparkly bunnies and a vintage vibe.
I put all the bunnies together and just loved it so much!!
My only wish, is that they had multiplied.
You can never have too many glitter-dusted bunny rabbits.
(in my opinion)
If you are like me, you might think one of the best things about Spring is planting time!
We are challenged here, because of the Deer. I’ve resorted to potted gardening. They have yet to climb the stairs, so the deck of the sun room is my main garden area for flowers. I tried something fun last Spring, and it worked great! The photo below is planting day, but the plants got so tall, full and lush. I had to add extra hooks too because the Clematis climbed like crazy!
Great if you have limited space too, or maybe just a patio off a sliding glass door.
It seems like it was just Valentine’s Day! How are we less than a month from Easter? Next thing I know, it’ll be June, and Austin will be graduating (gulp).
I’m trying to pretend that is not happening.
… and I’ve yet to DIY that time-machine.
My priorities are clearly all out of whack.
PS: if you’ve been reading The Girl Behind Fox Hollow Cottage, thank you… I’ll get the next part written this week. Maybe tomorrow? Since I just shared this totally awesome, and never before seen content with you. haha…
PPS: it’s late (again) and I’m off to unwind and watch The Walking Dead. That makes perfect sense right? Thank goodness for DVR’s!
