Welcome, friends, to this month’s $10 on the 10th! Today we are featuring posts all about Spring Crafts…
I’d like to thank Tammy from Patina and Paint for hosting the party. We have a lot of fun ideas for springtime to inspired you!
To create this vignette or one like it, you’ll need:
- whimsical rabbits, sheep and ducks from your stash or from the local hobby store
- Easter grass and colorful plastic eggs
- something to use as your Easter basket (I’ve used this door basket I found at Joanne Fabrics a couple of years ago.)
- a string of wooden beads or eggs
- moss covered balls
- springtime plates
- a linen dish towel
- any other items you’d like to include!
Arrange the tea towel in the bottom of the basket, then add in “risers” to lift the rear plate. Place some fun spring melamine plates next. I used some of the beads from the bead garland underneath to lift the back bunny plate.
Add in some moss-covered balls and plastic eggs into the basket. Drape the bead garland (or an egg garland) over and around the basket, then add sweet little rabbits and other farm animals to your scene. I’ve used a curly wool sheep, a small duckling and several rabbits old and new.
A touch of Easter grass hides another lift underneath the mother and baby rabbit.
My spring vignette covers the gamut of holidays in the springtime! The addition of a small heart pillow and a clover door hanger round out my springtime display.
Total cost? $7.99 for the four melamine plates found at Tuesday Morning a couple of weeks ago. Everything else I’ve picked up in previous years and the littlest bunny in blue jeans I’ve had since the 1990’s when making bunnies was popular.
Total cost for the moss covered balls was about $9 for the bag of moss last year. I have noticed that the cost for moss has shot way up this year! Do check out your local dollar store first.
Thank you for stopping by! Please enjoy your visit today to all the other ladies on the $10 on the 10th tour ~
