Simple Easter Decorations


I finally put up some Easter decorations.
 

I love these blue/green colors. I also love the simple pop of pink.

 

I was inspired by the new line of paper and elements by American Crafts, Dear Lizzie Fifth & Frolic (now available at JoAnn's). The line features refreshing and crisp blues, greens (which I obviously LOVED), pinks and yellows.

There is also absolutely delightful glitter paper.


The paper inspired several projects, including some much needed Easter decorations.

I used my Silhouette to cut out a lot of bunnies in the blues and greens and one in pink.


With the help of Mr. Elmer, I attached my bunnies to a blank canvas.


I spaced them out "evenly", or as "evenly" as I could eye ball. 'Cause that is how I roll.


I also cut out some 1/2" strips.


I glued them to a piece of cardstock paper.


On the back of the cardstock I drew an Easter egg shape.


Then I cut it out. I flipped it over and it gave me a lovely stripped egg.


I put it in a handy dandy frame from Ikea.


I had some leftover scraps of the strips, so I started punching out circles from the scraps and from another piece of pink paper.



I sewed them all together to make a little banner.


Now I have a little spot befitting a little Spring festiveness.




I have another project using this paper that I am excited to show you next week sometime if I can get my act together between two birthday parties and Easter. A sweet and lovely girly project. The kind of project I don't often get to do in this house full of boys.

Thanks for reading!
Have a fabulous day.

Glitter + bunnies = magic. The only thing that would have made it better is an appearance from a unicorn or two. Also, the art of free handing a perfect egg shape is harder than it looks... So for that, I applaud you, sister.

That was Nat, not MacKenzie... She isn't nearly as clever as I am.
