I am thrilled to report that this week is almost over! Not that its been a bad week, I'm just really looking forward to the weekend. AJ had to work the past two weekends, and last weekend I was in California, so it will be nice to have a regular weekend together!
Its also Palm Sunday weekend, which means that it is almost Easter!
Easter is the first "big" holiday that we've had the house, so I was really excited to decorate for it. Seriously, if I was this thrilled over Easter, Christmas is going to be insane!
I've never actually decorated for Easter before, so I started with making a wreath for our front door.
This one was super easy. I followed this tutorial pretty much exactly.
I had glue sticks and cardboard laying around, so all I needed were the eggs, which I got in a big giant bag from Target for $2. Oh, and the Easter grass. I had some, but it was blue and I wanted purple, so I got some of that at Target too.
I really wanted to create a pattern, so I laid everything out to make sure I had the right number of colors.
And then I started gluing everything down.
And before I knew it, we had a pretty new wreath for our front door.
And I had about a zillion eggs left over. So I decided to fill up my Ikea lanters + create an egg garland for the mantle. I love how cheerful it looks.
Now I just need to hold off on making the Easter baskets for another week. I've been dyyyying to make it for a while now, ever since I bought the candy for it!
Also, in an entirely unrelated to Easter comment, I just wanted to point out the artwork on the mantle. One of the things I love about it is that it was all handmade, and all give to us as gifts! The awesome monogram frame is from Jules, the maps were a bridal shower gift from a friend and the wedding frame was a Christmas gift made by my brother and his girlfriend!
Do you decorate for Easter, or do you just do a general spring theme? I am going to switch everything over to spring during my spring break!
