It was especially fun to decorate for Easter this year in a new house. New ideas. New perspective. New places to put knick-knacks.
For the mantle: I made the wreath by wrapping pussy willow stems around a grapevine wreath. The glass jar in the center is filled with 2-inch moss balls purchased at my local craft store. The ceramic bunnies I found at Marshall's a couple of years ago. The potted lily on the far right was a gift from friends. I made the "Happy Easter" sign by cutting triangles out of burlap fabric and gluing it to twine. I used white acrylic paint and letter stamps to stamp a letter on each triangle.
I bunched burlap ribbon together and wove it through the decorative items from one side of the mantle to the other. Other items include sticks, moss balls, eggs, pussy willow stems, etc.
For the table centerpiece: I used a birdcage for my kitchen table centerpiece. Inside, I placed two pottery bunnies I purchased at Target a couple of years ago, along with a twig birds' nest and eggs. I also added some green moss and green moss balls.
