Making a menu for your dinners not only helps you stay organized it helps you save money.
I made a few things for Easter to help decorate my house . They turned out really cute. I’ve seen some on blogs and some on Pinterest. I had a few decorations but needed some new ones so I googled Easter Wreaths and found a ton of really cute ones. Wow are there some crafty talented people out there. I found a good tutorial for a Ribbon Wreath and Topiary on debbiedoescreations.com. The great part is you can do them for fairly inexpensive. You can buy most of the stuff at the dollar store. Here’s a few pictures of what I did.
I love candy displays and they fit in easily along a garland or table landscape. So hilarious that I found gummy carrots to go with my bunny mallows. There’s a lot of cute Easter candy out there that you can use. Those eggs are actually wooden eggs that I painted and I found the cute chicken wire wrapped glass bowl at Ross for $4.00. Love that place to find different things you can use to decorate and for a great price.
I also made a Peep topiary. My kids love Peeps! Me included. I started using a toothpick to attach these to the styrofoam ball but a lot were falling off after I finished so I had to hot glue some. I would go that route unless you want them to be a display for a dessert table and to be eaten.
The next morning they were drier and therefore shrunk a bit which then makes spaces show in between. Even so its so cute. I used the tutorial by thehungrymouse.com but that is the toothpick way and I would recommend hot gluing.
I’d have to say these are the cutest craft and so simple. I found this on thecsiproject.com by a guest blogger called JC’s Loft, but when I tried to find her blog or site it kept saying not found. Sad because i’m sure she has some great ideas after seeing this one. Aren’t they Eggcellent?! Sorry Ha!
My last picture is of some decorations I already had I just added the subway art. I love Subway Art for Holidays so cute and you can usually find quite a bit out there that’s free.:0)
This subway art was from eighteen25.blogspot.com. You can google Easter Subway art and take your pick of many.
Thanks to all these talented people I have a whole bunch of new Easter decor. Check out their blogs or websites for more holiday crafts.
My name is Shauna and I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mom with 5 kids and a loving husband. I’m a native of Arizona and absolutely love it here.(Yes I have been other places cause we love to travel as well.) I graduated from Westwood High school then graduated from ASU with a short year at Utah Valley College along the way.
I have been cooking and baking since I was young. My mom taught me initially and then I took off with it from there. I helped teach cooking classes in Mesa years ago and had a little catering and Sugar cookie business as well. I love to Cook and Bake! Plain and simple it is therapy for me. I get to create something and feed it to the ones I love and share it with others too.
