Poofy Cheeks: Thoughtful Thursday & My Easter Decorations

Thoughtful Thursday & My Easter Decorations

 

Easter isn’t like Christmas or Halloween, but I still love to decorate. As a kid I remember my mom had a basket she filled with ceramic eggs my grandma had made. I’m not sure where it is now – but I wish I had it.

This year I saw the coolest idea at That’s My Letter – and I admit – I copied! I couldn’t resist this great idea. Jaime used fake turf as a table runner.

I went to Lowe’s and bought some of that ugly green outdoor grass carpet stuff. I bought one linear foot for $5.56 and covered both of my tables and entryway table with it. It might look ugly as flooring … but it looks darn good as decoration!

For the bucket (which I got last year at the Target dollar spot), I put my usual vase inside of it, then put crumpled newspaper around it. Covered the top with Spanish moss to hide the newspaper and stuck some plastic Easter eggs from last year in it. Cost = $3.50 for Spanish moss, the rest I already had!

For the entryway bookshelf I used more of the green grass carpet stuff and then made an Easter printable in a 5x7 $3 frame from Wal-Mart. Get the printable HERE. I had everything else.

The only things I bought for my entryway shelf were the ceramic bird (on clearance at Michael’s for $1.25) and the ‘Welcome Spring’ sign ($3.50 at Target right now!).

Last but not least, I found a cheese dome at Goodwill a few weeks ago for $3 and couldn’t pass it up. After just reading this post at Thrifty Decor Chick I had to bring the ole thing home with me. A coat of spray paint and it was lovely. I put some Spanish moss and plastic eggs from last year under it. (BTW – found the cool metal scoop thing at Goodwill too for $0.50)

Hope you enjoyed my Easter decor!
