Hello friends! This week we are here with a quick Easter craft. I have made progress on the wedding centerpieces and was planning on sharing that with you guys this week, but my mother and I made an Easter craft recently and it seemed like it would be better to share that before Easter came and went! This blog will not be so much of tutorial as people are not likely to have the same things in their crafty stash, but this will hopefully show you how easy it is to whip up something for spring. This type of craft can be customized to be more Easter-focused or more generally springy if you are not an Easter celebrator. Here is what my mother gathered up from her stash for us to use:
We have some pieces of wood, little ceramic bunnies, plastic eggs and carrots from the Dollar Tree, some paint, hot glue and stickers. We also went back into the stash to augment with some faux grass, stickers and other wood bits. I started off by sanding my wood and then painting it a whitewashed light blue. I also painted my little bunny a warm white rather than the greyish white that the ceramic originally was.
I decided that I wanted my sign to be for spring in general as I don't have much spring decor at the moment. I used some wooden letters that I painted pastel colors, as well as some spring stickers that I propped up on wooden pieces. I also painted my bunny's nose pink because he needed a cute nose!
I hot glued the painted letters to the eggs and then glued the eggs standing straight up on the wood. I then hot glued the little bunny and additional wood/sticker pieces to either end. Then for a finishing touch I hot glued some faux grass around the bottom to cover up any other glue globs. My mother went a different route and used rub on letters on her eggs and gave her wood and bunnies a brown wash for a more country feel.
And here they are! I love how my mother and I used fairly similar supplies and came out with two different decor pieces. Mine is the SPRING sign and hers is the HAPPY EASTER sign. Go raid your stash and see what you can make for spring!
