Easter! Easter!

I've always wanted to be the kind of person that puts out cute decorations for the not as popular decorating holidays.  But I've never felt like putting my money towards the decorations.  Until I got a little crafty and realized I can get the look without the price.  For example here is a snapshot from my phone of some of my Valentine decorations this year.

I hung up red hearts that I already had from a few years ago and then my girl and I made cupcakes.  So for practically nothing I got that fun festive feeling every time I was in my kitchen.

For Easter I was keeping my eyes peeled for something I could put up.  It took awhile but eventually I came across some great stuff in Targets Dollar section at the front of the store.  I found a cute sequin bunny for $3 as well as some "wooden animal shapes" that came in a pack of 5 for $1.  I bought 3 packs.  So for the grand total of $6 I got my Easter decor.

Here's what I did...


 I already had some twine and the shapes came already "hole punched" with string through them.

 So I cut down the string and tied them every few inches onto the twine. 
 When it was all done I had adorable Easter/Spring "garland".  I strung it up on my mantle using some command hooks I already had.  Then I set my bunny up on the mantle and Ta-dah!  My Easter decor...


  1. Thats a great idea! Doesnt cost anything and it makes it more fun for the kids.
