Burlap, Twine, and fabric covered eggs!

I have been wanting to do this for forever and I finally just got it done.
I saw the cutest eggs over at The DIY show off, and it gave me the motivation to get mine done!

styrofoam eggs
strips of burlap
strips of fabric
jute or twine
hot glue gun

I took my styrofoam eggs and started hot gluing the twine in a circle

I took some left over burlap that I had and cut it into strips

Then start hot gluing the strips on the eggs

I did the same thing with the fabric.

Here they are all done!

I took an old basket (that I had stashed away in my many to-do projects) and took some thick white ribbon and hot glued the ribbon around the top of the basket.

Then I added some filler (I don't know what else to call it)
I buy it at the dollar store...it is in the craft section.

Then add your eggs and I through in some baby's breath.
I love how it turned out!

Perfect for spring!!

Wash rag bunnies

When I was a little girl, we would always go to my Grandma's house on Easter morning, and she would make a little wash rag bunny for all the grand kids!

Now that we are all grown and don't gather at my Grandma's house for Easter, everyone has started to come here for Easter dinner....so I thought it would be fun to give all the kids one of these cute wash rag bunnies for old time sake!

Just lay your cloth down....like so....

Next, start rolling at a diagonal to the middle

Then roll the other side to meet in the middle

Then take it in your hand and fold in half

Then take the part end that will be the ears and fold it back

Then I take it in one hand and hold it tight so I can fit the ribbon around the head

Then take your ribbon, or tulle, and tie it around what will be your head

This is what it should look like...if you can follow my directions!

Then add your eyes and nose

And if you want a tail too!

They really are super easy and very inexpensive to make!

Oh, and you can stick an Easter egg full of candy in the body part to make it extra fun for the kids!!!!


Easter week!

So we are super excited for Easter at my house!
My 4 year old Brooke is asking every day how many more days until Easter, so this week I am going to post lots of Easter ideas!

I thought these fabric Easter eggs were a perfect way to start the week!
I absolutely love this idea!

You can find the whole tutorial at Retro Mama!

Happy Easter week!!


My painting!

While I was trying to take a picture of my painting, my daughter kept saying cheese...wanting her picture taken. And of coarse I had to take a picture of this cute little face!!!

I have always loved to paint and draw, and one year for Christmas many years ago, I decided to paint a picture for my dad. He loves horses, so I chose a western style painting.

I think it turned out alright, and I keep meaning to paint again, but you know how life goes! I think he thought it was wonderful.....you know how parents are!!! It meant a lot to him, and since then, he has passed away, so now it means a lot to me! I will always think of my dad when I see this painting!
