How are you doing? Did you have a wonderful Easter? It was such a lovely day here, sunshiny and full of spring.
Things are pretty busy around here, as usual, but I did manage to get a few fun Easter-y decorations up around the house. And of course, I snapped some pictures to share with you!
As a result of my limited crafty time right now, most of these projects work up pretty quickly, like this easy Easter Egg display 🙂
I just love using cake plates as centerpieces. They bring a little height and an easy elegance to things, don’t you think?
Here’s another quick and easy Easter Egg centerpiece, this time using a domed cake plate:
Domed cake plates are perfect for displaying seasonal decorations, you just swap out what’s inside the dome (think pretty bulbs at Christmas, or mini pumpkins for the fall!).
I used to wonder how to fill these up perfectly, until I saw it one day on QVC!
Here’s the trick: take the dome and turn it upside down, and fill it with your chosen décor.
Next, while still holding the dome upside down, place the base over the open end of the dome, and holding it in place, carefully turn both the dome and base right side up.
And there you have it! It’s really absurdly simple, but it just never occurred to me before seeing it done that way, ya know? 😉
Have you ever noticed that plastic Easter eggs each have a tiny hole in their top and bottom halves? I believe they’re to let air escape when you shut them. Whatever their purpose, it struck me the other day that they would be perfect for stringing together a garland!
To make this garland, I strung baker’s twine through the top and bottom holes of each egg using a large embroidery needle. After a little testing, I decided the eggs needed a bit of space between them, so I grabbed some white pom-poms left over from another Easter project years ago, and strung those on in between the eggs. I think they add to the whimsy, don’t you?
Finally, I felt like the garland needed a focal point, so I hung the bright green bow I made for last Christmas’ wreath, and hung that on the hook at the center of the garland. Perfect!
I also made some fun Easter Egg ornaments, but I’ll have to save those for next time. Until then, friends!
