Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail...

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

There is roughly 18 days until Easter and I got a little crafty tonight after sitting around on Pinterest for a while looking at Easter decorations. So after Anthony left to go home I ventured into my mess of a scrapbook room (there are still decorations I was working on for Christmas laying around) and threw together some decorations for the window frame I have hanging in the kitchen. I still need to get something for the shelf in the kitchen but its one step at a time for this chick. Here is some of my inspiration from pinterest:
How stinkin' adorable are these banners?!!?!!

This one is by far my favorite, probably going to make one for the office and the mantle here at the house and possibly the bathroom.

Pretty simple, just print and throw in a frame, not much easier than that.

Well here are my Easter banner masterpieces:
I already had the easter eggs cut out and strung up but was racking my brain for something to add because it was too plain. I decided on a banner but didn't want it to be like the tradtional banner that all the measurements are the same so I mixed it up and cut random sizes for the triangles. The letters were cut on my Cricut machine using the School Book cartridge and so were the eggs but I just cut ovals for them. I strung the eggs on thread and banner is hanging on pink jute twine.










I have been pretty busy this week getting into all kinds of fun stuff outside because Spring just skipped over us here in Ohio and its pretty much Summer. I mean Monday was a high of 74, today was 78-80 and tomorrow is a high of 88! This girl is not complaining though, I love it!!!

  3. I absolutely LOVE how your banner came out! You should pin it to pinterest, it's really that good! I hope to try my hand at some crafts this weekend but I'm not sure my turnout will be nearly as stunning.

    Happy Thursday!

  7. Hi! Found you through Whimsy Wednesday, and I love your Easter banner! I, too, have been looking around for cute ideas and decorations... so I'm glad I found you. I am going to make one of these pennant banners for my daughter's first birthday-- and use it for Easter too (Easter on one side, Birthday on the other!). Thanks for the inspiration!
