Yesterday, I shared with you a few Easter decorations around the house. Here are the rest…
For the front porch, I added large Easter eggs in the bushes. I added Easter Bunny banners (tutorial to follow) to the front doors. Hydrangeas (thanks to my students from TAW) and a moss bunny beside front door. And, of course tulips and pansies planted in the fall coming to fruition.
Bunny Banner Tutorial:
A good friend and I made these a couple of years ago together for our doors, and I always get excited when it is time to put them out.
You will need duck canvas cloth found at craft stores. Measure your door(s) and cut accordingly. Draw or trace a picture of your choice on the canvas. If you have access to a SmartBoard, you can trace the picture on the board.
Paint your canvas with acrylic paint. Let dry. Staple-gun to a a wooden dowel, and hot-glue bottom half of flap to the back, leaving room between the dowel to thread your ribbon.
Gorilla glue or hot glue fishing weights to the bottom, so they do not blow off of your door constantly.
Thread your ribbon of choice through the top and tie. Hang and enjoy!
I decided to add some glitter to his nose and some pom-poms to his hat, too. I used regular glue for glitter and hot glue for pom-poms.
Notice those darn oak, pollen-filled thingamagiggers at the bottom right corner. They are everywhere now!!
You could also add pom-pom fringe to the bottom edges. My friend added tule to hers, and it was very cute!
I love spring! Such a renewal time of year! (Believe or not,,, we just saw a hummingbird around the feeders. Rather early because they usually come in May, but a good sign that warmer weather is here to stay!)
