Making an Easter Egg Tree centerpiece is a fun craft to do with kids. My daughter had a great time helping me make ours–she took her time finding the perfect little branches for our tree. To make one, all you need are a few branches, plastic or decorative eggs, a vase, and string. Add a bow and paint the branches if you want to!
The decorative eggs I used were foam on the inside. I ran a needle through the top and made a knot. You can also glue the string to the eggs.
Tie the eggs to the branches and your Easter egg tree is done!

New spring wreaths are popping up all over my neighborhood, how about yours? I went with a Picture Frame Wreath this year:

Here’s what I added:
I stained the backs and seats of the rocking chairs with Rustoleum Summer Oak stain. It dried in about a day and really brought the chairs back to life. The cute pillow covers came from The Pillow People. It’s an Etsy store that I absolutely love. Mandy is super talented and has a ton of different patterns and colors.
I found these silk orchids at Michaels and it gave the table (and the porch!) a pop of color that it needed. Lanterns are a great place to display everything from candles, flowers, or in this case a little bunny for Easter.
Do you remember this table that I painted last week? It fit right in with the rockers. I added a burlap tray from Hobby Lobby so I have a handy place for my gardening gloves and small tools this summer.
I found this old ladder at a really cool antique shop up the road for $15. After I painted and distressed it, the ladder became the perfect place for my little succulent and herbs.
This cute indoor/outdoor rug came from Joss and Main. That website is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
I just love my new porch! It’s my family’s favorite space now and I can’t wait for the weather to stay warm so that we can enjoy it more.

I’m so glad that it’s finally starting to feel like spring outside! Making a seasonal wreath is one of my favorite things to do. Since I loved how the St. Patrick’s Day Picture Frame Wreath turned out, I made one for spring. It was so easy, here is what I used:
8×10 wooden picture frame
Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze Spray Paint (Gloss)
8 inch wooden letter
1/2 yard patterned fabric (you’ll have extra)
1 1/2″ ribbon
Hot glue gun
Spray paint the wooden letter and picture frame. (I used 2 coats).
Remove the back of the frame. Cut the fabric to fit the backing of the frame plus an extra inch or two on each side so that you can glue it to the back with hot glue.
Put this back into the picture frame. Center the letter and attach it with hot glue.
Add any embellishments you want like a bow, and add a ribbon loop at the top for hanging.
That’s it! If you need a more detailed tutorial, click here. Do you have your spring decorations up? What’s your favorite spring decoration?

Remember that spring floral door hanging I showed you last week? Well, I loved those little pre-arranged bouquets from Michaels so much, I bought another one. Only this time, I used it for a centerpiece! It was so easy to put together, anyone can do this. Here is all you need:
White ceramic pitcher (Michaels)
Artificial flower bouquet (Michaels)
Untie the bouquet to spread the flowers out, and place in the pitcher.
It’s that easy!

The breakfast bar needed something. Ever have one of those spaces? Without decorations, it looks empty, but go too big or too busy and the space is overloaded. Since I decorated the top of my cabinets with birdhouses for spring, I wanted to tie in birds somehow. That’s when the apothecary idea came to mind! I’ve seen these everywhere and just had to make one for myself. Here’s what I used:
Grapevine twig garland
Artificial decorative eggs
Craft wire cutters
Create the bird’s nest by cutting small sections of the grapevine garland and placing it the apothecary jar.
Your nest should look something like this:
Place 3 or 4 eggs in the middle of the nest.
Put the lid on, and your Bird’s Nest Apothecary is done!
Easy, right? For more spring decoration ideas, check out the Holiday & Seasonal page!
I don’t do much floral stuff. I go through the aisles at Michaels and get completely overloaded by all the choices. But when I found these pretty spring bouquets already put together at Michaels, I got so excited! I wanted a pretty, floral wreath alternative for my front door for spring and can finally make one! It was easy and will take you no time at all. Here’s what you need:
3 artificial flower bouquets
Metal cone wall basket
Untie the bouquets so that the flowers are loose.
Once all three are untied, bunch all the loose flowers together into one large bouquet.
Place the large bouquet in the cone basket. (I didn’t need to use any filler in the bottom of my basket.)
Adjust the flowers as needed and hang.
That’s it! Wasn’t that easy? For more spring projects, check out the Holiday and Seasonal page!
