With all of the rain, and dreary-ness, and cold weather, it hasn't been very Spring like to me.
And, even though I knew which day Easter would fall on,
a whole year in advance, (You know it's one of those holidays that changes dates every year), I still procrastinated decorating this year.
Two weeks ago, I found this idea
on the House of Hepworth's blog and loved the idea.
Then I saw this post at Decor Chick recently,
that just happened to reference HoH's post.
I knew that I could find the cheese domes at Goodwill, and I already had the prefect candle stick holder...
so I took the plunge!
Here is the Before picture. (Both items were Goodwill treasures, total cost $5)
I spray painted them with VALSPAR paint, and used gorilla glue to attach the wood base to the candlestick.
I love the Aqua blue color right now, so I just knew it had to be the right choice!
Here is the final project, along with my Easter/Spring decor.
Not too bad for putting this together last night?!!
Greenhouse was purchased at Big Lots about 8 years ago for $5. The Glass jars inside are antiques. One is an old ink well for a student desk, one a blue vase,and one is from a pharmacy.
The bunny was a Gabriel Brothers find for $2.99 and the litte green bird was from Michaels for $1.99
E and I made the garland by simply putting plastic eggs on ribbon!
