It’s been sunny and warmer…and it’s March. So, I am ready for Spring. But, I fear spring is not ready for us. A snowstorm is scheduled to bring us 6-8 inches of snow Monday and Tuesday. Blech.
Regardless, I decided it was time to take down the Valentine mantle and find some things to make it a little more Spring-y around here.
I pulled out some of my ceramic birds, filled up the apothecary jars with Easter grass and plastic eggs and re-used some bottles I covered with yarn last year and stuck some fake blossoms in them.
I found this printable and put it in a frame!
I made a new wreath with felt flowers.
And made this little pallet bunny art inspired by this blog post. Just grabbed some shims from the garage and hot glued them together –
Then I painted them a minty-green that I mixed up with some craft paint I already had on hand.
I made a stencil by free-handing a bunny on some cardstock. When I was happy with how it looked, I cut it out, taped it to the shims in the place I liked it and then traced it on the boards.
Then I painted him white! I think he’s sweet.
I also found a cute little paint chip egg garland. Since the hubby was going to Home Depot anyway this weekend, I had him pick up a stack of spring colored swatches and made a quick little version of my own.
Now that the mantle is ready for spring….it can come any time! Hoppy Spring!
