It's April Already?!

Yay!
I love redecorating my table!
My inspiration came from -can you guess?-Pinterest.
Or a majority of the ideas did.
I threw most of this together last night when the hubby was out.

Now I'll brake it down and tell you where I got all these fun ideas and how I did them!

1. Candles: white cardstock w/ribbon{Walmart} and purple polka-dots glued on.
You'll notice that I added the dots after the main pics were taken - I thought they would make it look cuter!
2. Mirror + Banner: the mirror I got from my grandma's house, and spray painted white.
The banner was cut with my silhouette.
3. Carrots: idea from Pinterest. Fabric bought from Walmart and then just hot glued together w/cotton stuffing.
4. Button Egg: idea from Pinterest. I made this back in March when Kerr{sis-in-law} came to visit.


We went to Porters and sorted through a BIIIIG bucket of buttons.
Then simply hot glued them to paper!
5. Bunny Thumbprint: yet another cute idea from Pinterest. I copied the pic and took it to Photoshop, blew it up, and used the color-replacement tool to make it purple.
6. Easter Egg Tree: hands down this is my FAVORITE! Credit, again, is to Pinterest{gotta LOVE it!} I took an old vase and spray painted it white, and grabbed some twigs from our front yard. Then I got some smaller plastic Easter eggs from Walmart {.50cents}, covered them in mod podge and rolled them in glitter.

I let those sit overnight to dry.
When I woke up I sprayed them with a coat of fixative.
It's clear, and usually sprayed on my pencil drawings,
but I thought I'd try it on the eggs because I didn't want the glitter coming off easily.
Worked like a charm and sealed the glitter without dulling it!

When that was dry {5min tops} I hot glued some embroidery floss to the backs of each egg,
and hung it on the tree!

Now you go have some fun and get in the mood for SPRING!

  3. Audrey, I couldn't get into your normal blog, but I wanted to let you know that the yellow chevron bathing suit my cousin was wearing was volcom brand. She got it at a surf shop in huntington beach last summer, but you could probably find it online. :)
