Spring!

Today really felt like spring here!  After a few days of muggy, warm weather and a big thunderstormy day yesterday, today was cool and sunny.  Jay and I went to an Orioles/Red Sox game and it was a beautiful day to watch a spring training game.

 

I’ve seen lots of spring wreaths and spring decor online and saw one that was easy to do.  Here it is:

I took two grapevine wreaths and set them on top of one another.  In the middle I placed some moss that I had on hand, set the bunny in the middle and cut up a couple artificial flower stems I had.  Then I added a few speckled eggs from my Easter things.  I think he’s cute!  

And here’s a banner I made to hang on the mantle in our family room:

This is a closeup of one of the letters.

 

The chipboard shapes were covered in dictionary pages and edged with ink.  Then I painted the letters, stamped lightly with a sanded look stamp, and painted the scalloped circle.  I got some little wooden half eggs from Michael’s and painted them, then stamped a flourish in gold on them.  I glued them on top of a bit of moss.  The little scalloped circles at the ends are stamped with a bird and a nest.
