Decorating for Easter

In between bouts of horrible gastro (that seems to have effected everyone in this house except Sean) I've managed to get a bit of Easter decorating done.

I haven't gone overboard, but have changed up the dining room side-board to include a nod to all things Easter.








The bunny silhouette was a really simple DIY and it's one of my favourite things.


I started out with some fabric that I had left over from my Christmas Tree Skirt, and I pinned it down onto a board so that it wouldn't move around.

 

I found a bunny image on google, printed it out onto card stock, added a bit of double sided tape to the back so that it would stay still, and then traced it onto my fabric using a sharpie.




After that I just coloured it in, stuck on a bow with hot glue, popped it into a frame and I was done. Simple, but very sweet.

 




I think it would look really sweet in a baby girl's nursery too!

Tell me, do you decorate for Easter?

    1. Hi Jennifer, they were actually some flowers I picked up in a store. They're made of a thin papery/foam material. I just tied them onto some string and hung them.

      Happy Easter :)

  5. This is such a pretty idea! We don't really do anything special for Easter.. now I feel like we should!! Mind you, my kids are only 2 and 6 months, maybe when they get a bit older :) X

  6. Gorgeous! I love the magic you create with a Sharpie!! We have an old set of drawers acting as our Easter table. Brian thinks it's his though, so it's decorated by a 3 year old!

    1. Sounds adorable :) Max has just worked out the little eggs in the apothecary jar are actually chocolate (he caught me eating them!), so now he thinks this table belongs to him too!
