Project number one...
I have this terrarium-like container on my dining room table throughout the year. Most of the time, it holds candles, but at Christmas I fill it with colorful ornaments. After I spread the grass/moss mixture around the bottom, I placed a few of the chalk eggs and some smaller jelly beans around the area. Two brown ceramic bunnies are in the middle of the Easter egg hunt. If you don't have any ceramic rabbits, I've seen chocolate bunnies used instead.
Here it is from the side..
The second project is similar except I used a glass jar that sits on my kitchen table. When making this, I used the same method as above, but I used only one bunny and one chalk egg, along with the jelly beans.
I like how proud he looks in the jar. After Easter, I'm going to continue to use the moss, but replace the bunny and eggs with a bird my grandfather carved. I love it when I can get multiple uses out of the same things!
Are you a holiday decorator that goes all out or do you tend to do the minimum like me? Anyone boycott seasonal decorations altogether?

Dear Marie, I love your centerpieces, especially the bunnies in the terrarium! I would've never thought of using chalk eggs in decor. I think their matte finish is quite pretty! Great choice :0)
I used to go 'all out' when I decorated for the holidays, but the busier I get with my family, the less time I have to decorate (and then clean up, ugh). I'm also a big fan of "less is more" and decorating with "natural elements" like flowers.
My little ones get so excited when they see holiday decor, so they're also a drive for me :0)
Have a beautiful weekend and a Happy, Happy Easter!
Thanks, Suzanne! I thought my girls would be so excited to see the decorations, but what they really wanted to do was eat the jellybeans! :)Delete
Too Cute! I'd like to switch places with one of those bunnies for a day. I'm with you on minimal holiday decorating. I can enjoy it in other peoples' homes, but for me, it's less stressful and more breathable in my own home to have a few special statement pieces to enjoy :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! Statement pieces all the way! :)Delete
Adorable spring touches and I love those chalk eggs!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Christine! :)Delete
