Craft Day - Easter Mantle

easter mantle
Easter is so early this year.  I had the hardest time getting my bunnies and such out in the beginning of March, but since my hearts were still up I figured I better just bite the bullet.  =)

I made the bunny garland using my Silhouette.  Then I added a cotton ball to each one for a tail, and a little ribbon bow tie.  The picture in the center is a place-mat that I found at Meijers the other day.  Can't get any easier than that! 

I also used my Silhouette to make Easter themed cut outs to decorate the flower basket on my hearth and the bowl on my kitchen table.  After I had them cut out, I just used double sided tape to attach some floral wire.

You may recognize the little bunnies above.  They are left over from my Bunny Eggs last weekMy son also thinks that they make great little puppets to play with when I am not looking!  

Both of these designs were simply purchased through the Silhouette store.  If you have a silhouette and would like to make a garland of your own, the Design ID # is 8154.  The bunny and chick cut outs are Design ID #9332.


All in all, the house is ready and waiting for Spring to arrive! Which means it will probably snow here tomorrow.

  2. Seeing this paper project I am just so tempted to buy a shiloutte! Right now I am using a Cricut but it looks like there is so much more you can do with a shiloute.

  3. If you're not looking how do you know your son's doing it (the puppets)? hehehe That made me laugh because my mom always said parents have eyes in the back of their heads. ;)

    Everything looks great, very festive!

    I'm visiting today from Linkin' with my Ladies. :)
