Make it Monday: 4 Adorable and Easy Easter Crafts to Make RIGHT NOW!

Cute

 

One of my absolute favorite holidays is approaching and I’m looking forward to it. As a Christian, I absolutely love Easter. I also really love springtime. Easter is important because it celebrates the death and resurrection of my Risen Savior Jesus Christ, but it also represents a time of renewal and rebirth.

I love crafting and creating pretty things, but even more so, I love sharing those things with others. I haven’t had much time to create anything lately, so I decided to share some of my current favorite Pin-spirations.

  1. Easy pom-tailed bunny garland

How easy would this be? You’d only need some pretty scrapbook paper, some twine, pom-poms, and a little glue. I think this is just adorable and I’d love to put it on my fireplace!

2.  Farmhouse Twine Carrots

These cute little carrots are so simple and easy to make! I think they’d be cute just about any way you’d decide to display them.

3. Old Rugged Cross Wreath

This old rugged cross wreath is so simple and beautiful…and best of all, it represents the true meaning of Easter. I’d hang this above my mantle or maybe on a mirror like this blogger did.  I cannot wait to make this.

4. No Sew Sock Bunny

These super cute little bunnies will be adorable on top of my mantle! I cant wait to make them with my girls!

I hope you have enjoyed this round up today! Happy Crafting!

2019 Spring Home Tour

2019 Spring Home Tour
What a long, strange winter! Not surprisingly, I’ve decided to re-decorate the inside of the house to reflect the “almost-here” spring. I’m really loving our simplified, paired down spring decor. It’s bright, airy, and I feel like my house can breathe!

Our entry table boasts a simple wicker charger with a large jar, some florals, a faux birds’ nest and some colorful speckled eggs.

I absolutely love these colors together and I can’t help but smile every time I walk past this table. 

There are touches of greenery everywhere and natural woods- things that remind me of spring without being too overpowering.

On our coffee table, we have a little vignette with a tray, a candle, and some greenery. I love how simple and how farmhouse-ish this is.

We also repurposed our wood trough box on our dining room table for spring. We used this thing to decorate for Christmas  and winter, and it works nicely for spring too.

I can’t wait to fill in the spaces with some grapevine spheres or some greenery. 

Lastly, I decorated this ledge in our dining room. I call it our “mantle” because we don’t have a real mantle. I love how realistic these faux branches are…and how cute are those little eggs in the nest?

This is definitely a low-key spring home tour. Way less elaborate than what I’ve done in the past, but I like it! 

Have a great week. Join us on Friday for a roundup of farmhouse mudrooms. 

Spring crafts you should make RIGHT NOW

Hello, everyone! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful day. We have had so much rain lately that I’m excited anytime I look out my window and see sunshine.

I haven’t had a lot of time to create lately, but I’m itching to get back into my craft room. I wanted to share a few cheap, easy, and adorable spring crafts with you today.

  1. Create a simple spring or summer wreath

This article is about a summer wreath I created, but you could easily use this wreath for spring, too. This is still one of my favorite wreaths I’ve ever made. So simple and so pretty!

2. DIY moss spheres

These moss spheres are super easy and cheap to make…and if you buy real moss balls in the stores, they will be costly. This is a much cheaper, but still cute option.

3. Spanish moss topiaries

These topiaries are quick, easy, and fun to make. You all know I love a good farmhouse project, and these topiaries fall right in line with that. They remain one of my favorite projects, and I use them all the time.

I hope you enjoyed these spring crafts! Join me later this week for some spring decor tips and spring cleaning ideas.

Remember when I made these Spanish moss topiaries? After making them, I had tons of Spanish moss left over, so I decided to make something else. Grapevine and moss spheres can be costly if you buy them, but did you know you can make your own?

I had these supplies left over after making the topiaries:

I simply coated the styrofoam spheres with the Mod Podge and popped them into a Ziplock bag filled with Spanish moss…and shook it.

Just pretend you’re making Shake and Bake pork chops. Remember those?

They should be covered and look a bit like this:

Now, let them dry for 24 hours and then pop them into a pretty basket or bowl.

Making these spheres cost me nothing, since I had all the materials already on hand, but if you were to buy them, you’d spend less than $10.

I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Have a fabulous week!

Make something Monday: Spanish moss topiaries

Make something Monday: Spanish moss topiaries

I really like the look of moss topiaries but I don’t like how much they cost. Thankfully, you can DIY them pretty cheaply.

I went to “blue big box store that starts with a ‘w'” and bought the things you see above. I also collected two sticks from my yard (not pictured).

I then painted the outside of the terra cotta pots with white chalk paint.

I painted them on the inside, too.

Then I glued a little styrofoam ball to the bottom of the pot and shoved one of the sticks from the yard into it. This forms your topiary base.

I covered the “base” by gluing Spanish moss to it until it was well covered.

I then took two more styrofoam balls, glued Spanish moss to them, and attached them to the top of the sticks.

There you have it. Two farmhouse inspired moss topiaries for less than $20.

Cheap, easy and cute- my favorite type of craft.

Have a great week!
