DIY Easter Egg Garland

I have a quick and easy Easter project for you today.  I made Easter egg garland for my stairs and it only cost $6.00.  I purchased these great plastic speckled eggs from Hobby Lobby and used some burlap and ribbon that I already had in my craft closet.  Most plastic eggs have small holes already in the top and bottom so I simply make the hole a little larger and started pushing the ribbon through the holes.  I tied a knot in the end eggs so they would not move and that’s it!  I hung the egg garland on my stairs and made three burlap bows along the staircase.

That’s it!!!  Now you have some easy and affordable decoration for Easter.  This garland would also be great to hang on a mantel, on a dessert table or on the front porch!

Have fun!

Displaying Christmas Cards

I love all of the different ways that people display their Christmas cards. This year I used my Christmas cards as a centerpiece on my dining room table.
(sorry for the phone quality pictures…my computer has crashed!)

I simply spray painted some branches with gold glitter paint and then arranged them in a vase. I used red and gold beads in the vase to hold the branches in place. Then as you receive Christmas cards, start tying them on the branches for a festive display.
