DIY room to room: Easter

EASTER ROOM TO ROOMCLAY BUNNY BOWL DIY EASTER EGG TREEEaster!!! I love everything about Easter. I’m thinking of claiming it as my favorite holiday (but the government needs to give me some days off of work in order for that to happen.) Easter is all about pastels and flowers and whimsy and bunnies and candy, so yes, I’d say there’s much to love about it. Here are some of my favorite ways to decorate for Easter from around the web.

Easter egg shelf. Line your shelves with some cute eggs and crown toppers. I love the black wall and bright colors.

DIY Clay Easter bunny dish. Love this simple design.

Easter egg tree. This family in Germany decorates their tree with thousands of eggs and has been doing so for 40 years! I’m coming for a visit!

How will you be celebrating Easter?!?! See more projects here.

DIY fringe carrot candy holder

Giant fringe carrot candy holder

My friend Anne of Flax and Twine was in town a couple of weeks ago and we got together at Merrilee’s house for some good ole fashion crafting and photoshootin with Merrilee’s sweet daughter who is the world’s best little carrot-holding model. Isn’t she precious? This carrot goes along with a large project that Anne will be debuting at some point (stay tuned!) but for now, I present an oversized carrot candy holder, perfect for storing eggs from the hunt.giant fringe carrot edited

Gold and blue Easter table

Gold Easter table

Any plans for Easter this year? We are invited to a Påske gilde with some Danish friends of ours so we’re just in charge of showing up, but this is a spread we did last year for some friends. It was a gold & robin’s egg blue theme and I found it super easy to do especially with just a couple of cans of gold spray paint. Easy squeezy. The concept started when I found the basket at a thrift store that was already all gold. I decided to go all out. I took a few DIYs that I already used and spray painted them.
