HAPPY EASTER one and all. I hope you are having a nice restful day and, if you received any, being sensible with your Easter eggs and chocolates. Sensible as in making sure you eat plenty whilst it’s officially allowed. 🙂
Today I am sharing two of the projects that I made for the Gecko Galz Spring Fling. Hitch a ride with the Easter Bunny and hop on over to take a look. There’s a different project being added every other day.
First up is this little Easter bunny garden, complete with chocolate eggs (or at least it was!!!). This was so so easy to make but so so difficult to photograph. First, I covered a wooden canape cup with Jane’s Garden paper from the Gecko Galz Wild Roses paper collection, added an Easter Greeting from the Peeps and Hops ephemera set, then gave it all a coat of clear crackle paint. I attached pink mini pom-pom trim around the top of the pot and a strip of cream crochet lace under the Easter greeting.
I added dry floristy foam to the pot and then topped it with some moss. I cut out bunny images, again from the Peeps and Hops ephemera set, and added some lace and ribbon to each. I used cocktail sticks, hot glued to the back, to secure the images inside the pot.
There were two ways to go with this pot. One, leave the mini-eggs in it and watch them disappear as my family helped themselves (with no thought to the aesthetics of the piece I might add) or, eat them myself. I’ll leave it you to decide which way it went!!! I’m going to share this project over at Papercraft Star for their current Easter challenge.
My second offering is this cute little Easter decoration. Again, super easy to make and, thankfully, much easier to photograph.
This was just a wooden egg tag that I covered with Splendor paper from the Wild Roses and the front is and image from the Peeps and Hops ephemera set. I added some ultra fine Flowersoft in Sage and Raspberry to add some texture to the grass and bouquet. I went around the edge of the egg with a large glue pen and then sprinkled on pink glitter.
I gave the bunny a little fluffy pom-pom tail.
I added some pink ruffle lace to the bottom half of the egg and added some candy pink twine and pink ribbon bows at the top. A little pink button just finishes it off.
Enjoy the rest of your Easter and thanks for buzzing by.
