Hello, everyone! I hope you all are doing well and not eating too many jelly beans like me! I'm a jelly bean freak. Anyway, Easter is just around the corner, and if you've not gotten your decorations out (or if you don't have any), I've got some fabulous links for you!
Item #1 is from therustygoose
I chose this little chick decoration because it's so freaking cute! I'm also a huge fan of the distressed look as well. This little cutie is made of 2 inch thick wood and measures in at 7.5 x 5.75 inches. Not too tiny, but not huge either. It comes with pink ribbon, but there are other options to choose from. Love this little shelf sitter :)
Item #2 is from SugarTreeDecor
Oh...this wreath. I like it because it's not like most wreaths you end up seeing around Easter time. You've got your bunny in the middle (love the glasses; gives him a sophisticated look), hydrangeas, peonies, a few eggs, and what else? CARROTS! The combination of the different prints of ribbon flows really well with the theme of this wreath and to top everything off--a "Happy Easter" sign. If you have the space between your front door and storm door (unlike me) or don't have a storm door, this is a fantastic wreath for you!
Item #3 is from thelittlegreenbean
I couldn't do an Easter post without including a banner now could I? Nope. Each pennant is made of burlap, and is wither a carrot or bunny. The bunnies have a cute little cotton tail, and the carrots have raffia for the leaves. These won't come off easily because they are sewn onto the twine. At the end there are 3 feet of extra twine on both ends. Too cute! The bunny pillow is also listed in her shop if you want to complete the look!
Item #4 is from UkrainianEasterEggs
Let me tell ya'll now. I saw this egg, and my mouth dropped because I thought it was so GORGEGOUS. Look at the tiny, tiny details on this egg (it's a chicken egg, so you know how tiny these details are). The entire piece is handmade (well, except for laying the egg, but you know what I mean). It has been emptied, washed, painted with hot beeswax, dyed, and sealed. I don't know how many of you have tried to blow out the contents of an egg through a tiny hole, but believe me, it isn't easy. I tried it before, and I had to give up. The process these artists go through is so intricate and is not for the patience-lacking. This specific type of egg painting is called Pysanky. Those that do this are extremely talented and drawers, designers, and painters, and I'm so glad to see that this traditional way of painting eggs has been passed down and maintained throughout the generations! Below is a video showing how this is done!
Item #5 is from BonjourLuna
I don't know what it is about fabric carrots, but I love them! They're just too cute. The maker of these carrots uses cotton fabric and polyester filling. As an option, you get to choose what fabric you want your carrot made out of (1 of 3), but if you're buying more than one, you can mix and match or go with just one print. I personally like the mixture of prints because they do go so well together. You can use these a number of ways: shelf sitters, basket fillers, bowl fillers, or whatever else you can think of. I could honestly see these being used in the summer as an addition to a indoor gardening sign!
Item #6 is from KatandCoCrafts
As I said earlier, I'm a huge fan of distressed things, and this Easter Bunny sign fits the bill. Pink is definitely not my favorite color, but the maker of this item is willing to work with those of us who aren't "pink fans" and change the color! The sign is 7.25 x 7.25 inches and 3/4 of an inch thick. The bunny itself is really cute, but the vines add a little more visual interest to the piece along with the distressing technique.
