Oh and that giant brown blob that I call a server is going to get it's own post sometime because I need to redo the finish and I want some advice.
Here is my server in it's current springiness!
So everyone is doing these, here is my version. I made it with last year's pastel easter eggs, a terra cotta pot, a foam cone, and some moss all hot glued together.
My banners are what I really want to tell you about. Mostly because they cost FREE! I'm on maternity leave and I am TRYING to be super frugal since I'm not bringing in any bacon to be spending on decor and craftiness.
The top garland was inspired by pottery barn. They have a glitter garland with bunny, egg etc silhouettes. I just used pastel paper. I'm a pastel springy person. I have a cricut...but I don't have a spring time cartridge wah waaaah! Sooooo........I used my cookie cutters as a stencil. I cut a bunch out and sewed them together.
I was nervous about sewing paper but it was AWESOME! Afterwards, I safety pinned it to my trusty green tapestry wannabe.
And moved on to the "SPRING" bunting. I used the same paper colors. I again used cookie cutters as stencils for the poofy flower and for the letters. To give it some umph I added accordion circles to make it 3d. Then I hot glued the bunting triangles onto a piece of ribbon.
The way I hung it was my favorite. I went to the neighbor's yard and borrowed 2 of the hundreds of sticks that are left over when a branch fell in their yard last spring. They haven't
moved used them yet so I figured they were fair game. (Cleaning up my neighbor hood one craft at a time!) I spray painted said sticks white. I wanted to make them look springier so I hot glued jellybeans on in little clusters to look like buds.
I like it. Do you?
