Happy Tuesday! I think we are all ready for a little more Spring, don’t you think? Goodbye winter:). A few weeks ago the kids had off from school and we made some spring crafts. Book page Easter eggs and this spring garland. This garland craft is soooo easy to make (a craft even kids can do:) and CHEAP! Perfect for your spring decorating. We only used half of the clay so it cost us roughly $2 for the garland shown. All you do is roll out the modeling clay, we used DAS. Next use cookie cutters to cut out your shapes. Eggs and bunnies for us:). Now, they are not quite as perfect as maybe I would have done but the kids made them:).
I used chop sticks to make the holes for the ribbon to go through. Let the clay dry 24 hrs and you are ready to hang them. I had a couple of places in mind for this garland so I might change my mind yet and move it but for today they are hanging on my dining room mantel:).
In keeping with the yellow accent color in my Spring decorating I picked up some yellow tulips from Trader Joe’s:). I love tulips! To see our yellow spring mantel in the living room click here.
That is a recycled Whole Foods apple juice jug (minus the label) for the centerpiece with some branches from our yard and a sprig of forsythia from AC Moore. (flowers are 1/2 off this week…I am not getting paid to say that, it’s just a good deal)! And for a large glass jug for $8 (and you get to drink the juice in it) that price can’t be beat either:). The glass jug looks very similar to some I have seen in the Pottery Barn catalog. It makes a beautiful simple centerpiece for really anywhere in your home:). And I still love my newly refinished farmhouse dining room table that Jason made me. To see how he made it to look like a popular Restoration Hardware one click here.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! Jason started laying the hardwood in our Master bedroom this past weekend! Yay! I can’t wait to show you the final reveal after we are all done!
