CELEBRATIONS: Miniature Crepe Paper & Moss Carrots

Miniature Crepe Paper Carrots - homework (5)Easter is around the corner and now that I don’t have a little one at home, I don’t go all out on an Easter basket for cute bunny décor anymore. But it wouldn’t be any fun without some type of Easter project.

INKLING: Printable Dear Easter Bunny Cards

Dear Easter Bunny Printable Note (2)Here’s a cute last minute printable for you. If you have little ones and you’re planning on leaving carrots for the Easter bunny, print out this Dear Easter Bunny card that I created. I miss the days when my son would leave the Easter Bunny a card and some carrots. Every year after he went to bed, I’d take bites out of the carrots as “proof” the bunny had actually stopped by.

Celebrations: dyed & speckled easter eggs

What would Easter or spring décor be without some fun eggs? I try to do something different every year and this year I went back to basics with good old fashioned dyed eggs.

Celebrations: egg place cards

Pin It


I’ve been saving my egg shells for my final Easter décor post – and I’ve been cracking eggs differently too. I’ve had this project in mind and instead of wasting a bunch of eggs, I’ve been using a knife to crack the tops of the eggs and soaking the egg shells in hot soapy water and letting them dry.



Once I had enough egg shells, I decided I would rather have brown eggs for my project. I didn’t do any research but jumped in and soaked my egg shells in a muddy bath of used coffee grinds and a little water. For this light brown shade, I soaked them for about a half hour.



I love the uneven light brown shades on the eggs. 



The eggs were gently stuffed with tissue paper and then a layer of moss added to peek over the edges. A pink silk flower and a few pink faux berries gives the neutral eggs a little splash of color.



I used my new favorite craft supply – vintage seam binding for the place card names.

Here’s a trick: to write on soft ribbon or fabric, use double sided tape to secure your ribbon to your desk or writing surface. Use a fine tip pen and handwrite your words. I used a silver gel pen.



To hold up the eggs, I used cardboard egg cartons also dipped in the coffee mud and quickly rinsed and then dried.



Hope to see you tomorrow for the Inspiration Board Spotlight. And for those of you who celebrate Easter, I want to wish you a glorious and wonderful day. 


Thanks for visiting.

Etceteras: easter inspiration

The project that was planned for today is still on the craft table. I’ve hit a bit of a snag and I’m going to try to salvage the project. If I can’t, it will be another one for the craft fail file. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

In the meantime, I thought some pretty Easter inspiration would do me some good and I wanted to share these beautiful projects and ideas with you.  Enjoy!

Celebrations: spring napkin rings

Pin It


Spring flowers are popping up all over my house 
{unfortunately not in my garden yet}.



Last week I posted about this spring centerpiece that I made out of painted paper napkins. You can see the post here.



I had some leftover painted napkins and made a few more flowers that I used to create these napkin rings.



The rings are made out of floral wire and covered with a green paper napkin and Mod Podge. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the flowers to the wire and covered the flower base with more of the green napkin.



As I mentioned in my original centerpiece post, the napkins are super thin {cheap} which makes them all the more delicate and airy. Great for crafting but not very good for using with a meal.



A trial run place setting for Easter.




Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for visiting!

Etceteras: golden eggs

Add a touch of elegance to your décor with golden eggs.

These eggs started out as regular plastic Easter eggs. I gave them several coats of gold spray paint. Added some organza ribbon and topped them with a silk flower.

Use them as place cards by simply adding a tag or nameplate tucked into the ribbon. Or, display them on candleholders, champagne flutes or vases as I did for a centerpiece.
I love the pastels of spring but a little touch of elegance is a nice break.
