On Easter, I like to strike a balance between the Easter bunny and Jesus.
I made this straw bunting wreath with a phrase every good Presbyterian knows. “He is Risen!” Now you say “He is Risen indeed!” My budget was initially 10 dollars. The wreath was $5.50. The thing that got me were the burlap stick on letters at $4.99 a pack. I have a lot left for other projects, so that’s good at least. I bought one sheet of honeycomb patterned scrapbook paper at 50 cents. Then I got a stem of white poppies and a dahlia (maybe?) for half off each. I think they came in around 6 dollars. I went with white because Easter lilies are white and also “What can make us white as snow? Nothing but the blood of Jesus” I had some of the twine laying around from some project.
I cut out some triangles, glued them to the twine, and stuck on the letters. Then I glued the bunting to the wreath. Then I glued the flowers on! How easy is that? I’m almost embarrassed typing this paragraph for you, it’s like DUH!
HGTV Magazine had a little feature where it showed you what to do with decorative Easter eggs. I tried one suggestion, to mod podge on some fabric, but since I’m frugal I chose Dollar Tree styrofoam eggs. I had big plans featuring toile, gingham and gold paint. I had lots of eggs. Three dollars worth in fact. This project failed miserably because I failed high school geometry. I couldn’t get the ovals the correct shape to adhere to the egg without puckering. Instead of calling the 30 minutes I spent a waste- I threw in some Easter grass, hoping it’s voluminous crinkles would hide the imperfections on the eggs.
Finally, Owen and I made some TP roll bunnies! Aren’t they cute?! Owen loves them.
Here they are with all the stuff I used to make them, I’m not explaining it because once again… DUH!
He loved them so much that when I turned my back he dipped them in my chai. Now they are ombre Easter bunnies.
