The calendar says Spring! But the weatherman says otherwise : ( However, that did not stop me from starting to add a few Spring and Easter touches around the house starting with the faux mantle.
Not a lot yet, but it’s a start. I was short on time so I ran down to the basement quick and grabbed whatever Easter decorations I could find. I still need “something” on the wall behind the shelf. I have something in mind – but I have to make it first ; )
My local grocery store had these pretty, pink, miniature carnations on sale and I just couldn’t resist. I put them in these cute, little bottles that I frosted by adding a few drops of pink craft paint to some Martha Stewart Frost Effect paint.
The frosted bottles pair up nicely with the glittery Easter bunny that I found at HomeGoods a few years ago.
The bunny banner took all of about 30 minutes to make.
To make it, I created pennant shapes in Silhouette® Studio and cut them out of pink, patterned card stock. I used a floral card stock for the bunnies.
After all of the shapes were cut, I glued the bunnies onto the pennant pieces and strung them together with ribbon.
After they were glued together, I decided that the bunnies needed a little definition. I rubbed some gray chalk around the edges. This would have been easier to do before the bunnies were glued onto the pennants, duh!

Have you started decorating for Spring or Easter yet?
Happy First Day of Spring!
