Easter bunnies and birds
When I got out the Easter decorations last week this was the only wreath for the front door. I am sure that at one time I liked it, but now it seems bad to me. It's way too small, it's become misshapen and it's too pink.
Wait, did I just say something was too pink? Whoa.
So a few weeks ago Shara found these tiny speckled eggs and I asked if we could do a little swap. I wanted the eggs to fill up my kitchen apothecary jars.*
The little eggs arrived and they were just so sweet I knew I needed a new wreath.
I started digging around in all my junk trying to come up with an idea. I had some green moss Dave bought me for Valentine's day, I had a left over bird from that long ago sparkly stick Martha project and the little eggs.
Hmmmmmm, I needed something else. I knew I would be forever gluing on thousands of tiny eggs.
And then my light bulb went off. I plucked all the eggs off that pink wreath, spray painted them robin's egg blue and spent a few hours burning my flesh off with the hot glue gun.
And I LOVE it in all of it's earthy, springy goodness.
(It's hard to get a photo of my front door. Who knew? I put this photo in because I know some of you like to see a broader shot of our house.)
At some point I picked up a paper mache egg. I immediately thought it wanted to be a rabbit. I only have one of those spun cotton rabbit heads and I wanted to use it. Then I saw the tutorial for fabric covered eggs and decided to give it all a go at once.
She's cute enough except that even though I *promise* I wasn't trying to copy one of Laurie's bunnies , she is almost an exact copy down to the flower and the button. LOLOL
And yea, she doesn't stand up straight for the life of her.
So, 1 projik that is a total winner and 1 that is not my favorite.
It all balances out in the end, eh?
*I still had plenty of eggs to fill my jars, thank you Shara!
