Who is excited for Spring? Easter is just a few weeks away so it’s time to get those decorations out!

It seems every year I like things more simple. Easy put up and down is priority!

This year I bought large paper mache eggs from Hobby Lobby (HERE), painted them with my favorite gold paint (HERE) and hung them to our dining light with lace and tulle.

I love copper right now. I put out my Jelly molds and set them on white cake stands for the centerpiece.

How could I pass up this copper bunny Jelly mold for $1 at the thrift store?!

Happy Monday everyone! It may be snowing outside, but inside we are thinking of spring!

We made the EASIEST garland for Easter, and LOVE that it only took five mins!

SUPPLIES:

We used THESE eggs. So cute and less than $5 for the dozen!

Jute rope (HERE)

Pearl pins (HERE)

HOW TO:

These eggs are made of foam and are light-weight, which made them perfect to pin onto a rope.

Decorating for holidays in just a few mins with just a few dollars is our absolute favorite, how about you?

Easy Spring Garland

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Today, we’re sharing this springy bunting that we whipped up in just a few minutes…

We know a classic bunting is overdone, but hey, it’s timeless and hard to beat!

Sarah had remnants of this yellow gingham fabric which was our starting point. We simply cut into triangles and cut two little holes in each piece to thread the twine through.

Next we tied yellow, tan and cream ribbons onto the twine for a fuller look.

We love how this simple garland brightens up the home for spring, especially because we only used what materials we already had! Now we just need a vase of bright daffodils!

How are you decorating this spring?
