Easter Decor and Baskets

I am way behind on any seasonal decor...I totally skipped Valentines and St. Patrick's Day and wasn't going to do Easter, but a couple weeks ago I just felt like making Spring decor changes. Maybe it was the blizzard warning we were under that was bringing out the need for some soft Spring colors and fresh decor... I am totally over winter already! So, I quickly rummaged my Spring decor bin and tried to whip up something quick and easy. We have these two cut outs in our house that I decorate for seasons/holidays. I started with the larger one in the upstairs hallway and settled on this:


It came together fairly quickly and for free using items I had on hand. I first took a 16 x 20 frame we have had downstairs for over 5 years and took out the mat. I added some fresh floral wrapping paper from Walmart and hung it on the wall. Next, I created a 3D Egg banner inspired by this tutorial. I did my eggs a little different to hide the back sides being white or a different print and I simply hole punched my paper at the top to string it up. I also would have loved to use book pages, but didn't have any old books to tear up on hand :(

In one corner I grabbed a thrifted pitcher I spray painted cream a long time ago and filled it with sticks and grassy things that I also had downstairs. Throw two little cute birdies next to it and call it good. On the other side I printed an Easter printable and framed it with a moss bunny behind. The bunny and birds came from my husband's aunt who sells these types of decorations wholesale to stores. I love digging through her sale racks of display items to find little treasures.

I wish I could say I finished the downstairs nook...but it sits with a half completed chalkboard project and a nest with no eggs in it...well, maybe next year!

And here is a little look at a project I did last year. Quick little baskets using this tutorial from Positively Splendid

Happy Easter-
