Spring Craftery

Over the past week I have been "Spring-izing" our place. Living in small quarters only allows for a touch of decorating, but I still get so excited for every holiday.

Easter Eggs: I was at Michael's last week and stumbled upon these paper mache plain eggs and for some reason HAD to buy them. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to use them for, but I found a purpose during my sister (see her fun projects over at Things to be Stroud of) this past weekend! I painted some designs on them, added a little burlap and modge podge and threw them in a Mason Jar with some burlap on top.

Wreath [this is the 3rd season of using my twig wreath-I decorated the same one for Fall and Christmas]: I really wanted to incorporate my favorite flowers [Tulips], and I wish I could use real ones but that is just not practical! So, I was able to find some pretty real looking silk ones, and a pop of pink to add some color and I recycled the burlap I had from previous crafts for the bow.

I had bought a silk bouquet of the flowers, so I snipped them to be individual so I could place them around the wreath, then cut portions of the pink bouquet to place in between. I then just used tacky-glue to put the bow on and voilĂ !

A little touch of St. Patty's day with one of my favorite Irish blessings on the chalkboard and some miscellaneous Spring items I'm loving in my small space!
