Easter Entryway Shelf

This week, I haven't had many kids.  It seems they all have been ill.  With fewer kids, and nice days, I have been outside and crafting up a storm.  I think I have two more post ready to go, and I have at least three projects in the makes.  I have to remember to pace myself so I don't end up without any posts after Easter.  Well, I think I am finally done with my entryway shelf and my red hutch.  These are the main areas I decorate for any holiday.  I had fun this year, made a couple of new things, and, I always repurpose something.  

Here is where my repurposed Eggs in a Nest rest - he he.

I made this when I made my wreath.  I didn't really like it at first.  I wanted to use the pretty speckled eggs, but, I just didn't have enough and I can't find them anymore.

I still don't know, what do you think?  Should I keep this one, or,

my vase with pastel eggs?

Pin wheels are tricky for me.  I love how everybody uses them.  I will continue to try them until I get them right.

This is my repurposed tree.  I have used it for Christmas (snowflakes), Valentines Day (glitter hearts), and now for my Easter eggs.

That's it for my entryway shelf.  It sits across from my transformed bookcase.

This is my big red hutch.  I love it, and, it sits in my living room.  Under the shelves, in the cabinets, sits my stereo.  I will show you that one day (when I get out music under control).

I got the Easter spelled out in eggs at Target.

I got my Spring sign and egg holder at the Dollar Tree last year.   The bunnies below, came from there too.

I love how my ribbon wrapped candle arrangement turned out.  It makes me smile : )

This is on my dining room table.  I really like the two tiered tin thingy I got from Hobby Lobby.  

The candle stick was from a recent thrift store visit.  I will have to show you some of the cool stuff I got (talk about SCORE...).  I just tied a little ribbon on my candle.

I have a little brown hutch that I put my DIY frosted vase and flowers on.  I just love this little basket, and, I think the bunny matches it pretty good.

Last, but, not least, is my glowing floral arrangement.  I repurposed it from Christmas.  The little bunny sitting on top of my tea lights is a sweetie.

I hope you enjoyed my little Easter parade, and, I hope you have a very Happy Easter!

  9. These are so fun! I LOVE the white easter branch tree idea; I should get one of those and use it as you do for easter and christmas. It's very elegant. And as for the pastel eggs, those are elegant too but I vote for the colored ones a lot of fun Also LOVE that red hutch. did you happen to get that on line? visiting from the friday hop.

  10. Hmmm...I must admit that I'm a huge spray paint addict so if you don't like your colored could tape off the vase and do something dramatic (like all gold or silver) or one at a time works of art!

    Adorable ideas!
