Upcycled for Easter

So you may have noticed that I haven’t blogged since October.  I’ve changed my mind about blogging about every little I make.   I’ve decided (for now) that I will probably only blog when I feel I have something good and crafty to share with you which is why I am here today.

This Easter Basket took me 30 minutes to make.  It’s pretty darn cute and it’s recycling plastic. Cans will work too.  All you need is a glue gun, some quilt batting (optional) and some material and the possibilities are endless.  You can use ice cream, margarine, yogurt, salad containers, coffee cans etc!!!

add a big bow on the front or two little bows on the handles and you have yourself a cute little basket!

Hello April

Although our winter was not really very cold and we hardly got any snow this year, it always seems like the longest season in Ontario.  April is here and spring is in the air.  The sun is shining, the trees and flowers are blooming and the grass is getting nice and green.  My husband mowed the lawn today and then we gardened all day in our backyard.  It’s a lot of work but it’s fun work and so rewarding when you get to sit, relax and enjoy the beauty!

I was in need of some new outdoor Easter decor this year so I picked up a couple of vases, some easter eggs and some silk flowers from the dollar store. I added some stone to the bottom of the vases for weight then added the eggs and arranged the flowers.   So simple and they look so pretty and colourful sitting on the table on my front porch.

I found this cute wood bunny on an awesome blog I am following  skiptomylou.org.  That was my inspiration for my 3 new little garden bunnies.  I used some scrap plywood and cut out the bunnies and the stakes with my scroll saw.   I glued the stakes on, painted them brown, put a bow on them and planted them in my garden.  They look pretty cute!

Thank-You for the inspiration Cindy. Your bunny looks delicious!!!

HAPPY EASTER
