Things Got Crafty...

In an unprecedented turn of events, I had a whole weekend to myself. Eric went to visit friends in Pitt & Ella went to his mom's for a couple nights. I was excited for some freedom, but I wasn't really sure what to do with it. So Friday night I decided to start tackling some Pinterest projects that have caught my eye recently. They're all Easter related because I wanted to have the house decorated for Ella's homecoming. I'm not really sure if she'll even notice, but it's the thought that counts...

I'm going to do a tutorial on the top image, my bunny garland, because the pin was just a picture with no instructions. I figured it out though & I think it turned out awesome. I even made my sister one for her new house! 

The middle image was easy peezy because it was a free printable from Everyday Cheer & I love it!! 

Last up was the Easter egg garland made from paint chips. So cheap & I love how it turned out. I have to say I felt a little sketchy hoarding a ton of paint samples from Lowes, but it was worth it :) 

Inspiration struck while I was in Target Saturday morning too & I ended up buying all the supplies for this centerpiece for less than $3! I have two trifle bowls & honestly never use them, so I was happy to pull it out & put it to use! 

The rest of my weekend was spent rotating between helping my sister clean at her new house & doing some spring cleaning/yard work at our house. The weather was perfect, so I even got to open up all the windows & air everything out. It's finally starting to feel like spring, which is perfect because today is the first day of our Spring Break! The weather is supposed to be beautiful again, so I think we're headed to the zoo! 


  1. Awww this is so cute! I love decorations made with paint chips - but like you said, I would feel so weird just walking in for some and then leaving lol.

  2. Very cute! I too have paint chips sitting around waiting to do the same egg garland!
