Spring is fleeting in Southern California.
I think spring came and went from about 8:30 am to 11:45 am yesterday.
Then it was super hot and I was moving the umbrellas on the patio to shade my potted hydrangeas.
With this kinda of springtime, I have to move fast.
Fast like the Easter bunny looking for cover!
So I keep it simple.
** read on for a beautiful Springtime giveaway **
Today I am sharing three fast, simple, yet lovely ways to decorate for Easter – our springtime holiday.
Not only am I sharing, but three of my dear & talented friends are too and we have a wonderful prize for one of you!
Simple Fast & Lovely Easter Decor Ideas
Let your eggs go au’ natural in browns & whites.
Mix them in with skeins of yarn for a simple twist on an Easter basket.
For more on this simple combination of eggs & yarn visit HERE.
Forcing branches is a wonderful way to bring the Spring indoors.
But what if you don’t have budding branches outside your door?
Follow my super simple tutorial ( Got glue? Then you can do this. ) and you will have flowering branches every year.
( tip: I store mine in one of those wrapping paper plastic bins )
Click HERE for my tutorial on faux flowering branches. That sounds like I am forcing you. No pressure just pop over if you’d like!
The idea for a carrot arrangement came to me when I had no flowers for a impromptu Spring weekend lunch.
Sometimes great ideas spring forth from less then ideal circumstances.
I had a six pack of lettuce ( gardeners know I am not talking about a new veggie beer ) on hand to plant in my garden. And I had felt in my stash and some carrots in the fridge…
Sooo, those things turned into a carrot centerpiece in about 15 minutes. You can skip the felt tops and get it done in 5 minutes. Simple, fast and in this case, lovely and whimsical ! Get the tutorial HERE.
My friends have wonderful Springtime and Easter ideas for you too.
