Do you remember on Friday, when I told you how excited I was that we were going to have our first Spring Break here in a million years with beautiful weather? Well, apparently Mr Weatherman is a big fat liar: Friday was nice out, and the first half of Saturday … then it got cold and started pouring rain (which then turned into hail for a good portion of the day). Then Sunday, it was freezing — as in Shanna-could-not-use-her-paint-sprayer-like-she-planned-to freezing. Yesterday, it was in the 50’s and not terrible. And have I mentioned the wind … For people like me that do a lot of our projects outdoors, Kansas is just not the right place to live. There’s not a lot of spray paint that finds its target in 50mph wind gusts. With the kiddo off school, we decided to start watching a new series: Hart of Dixie is our new obsession. We have been watching 4-5 episodes a night, which has had us staying up until 2 or 3 in the morning. I can’t recommend this show enough! I have been painting like crazy (indoors), and last weekend I started moving my pieces into the new storefront where I’ll have a space. I will give you all of the details when it gets a little closer to the April 1st grand opening! Getting ready for this new venture has had me running a bit behind with my Easter decor. With the unnamed child home, I set her to work for me making my Easter Egg Trees. Here is what you will need:
- 2 terra cotta pots
- 2 styrofoam trees
- A sheet of moss
- A roll of ribbon
- A can of spray paint, and
- Some plastic easter eggs
I got all of my supplies at Michaels, and I used their 40% off coupons I found online. First spray paint your pots, I used three coats. Next hot glue your moss onto your styrofoam trees.
Then glue your trees into your pots so they’re steady. Next glue your eggs all over your tree. Once your tree is completely covered, glue on your ribbon and make a bow. Super easy!
Now my mantel isn’t looking so naked, and I’m feeling a bit more prepared for Easter. Make sure you come back tomorrow to see my new dresser makeover!!!
