DIY Easter Garland

DIY Easter Egg Garland by Two Purple Couches

I really loved how my Valentine’s garland turned out, so I whipped up an easy DIY Easter garland to make my mantel more festive.

I created eggs with felt and a variety of ribbon and the pom-poms with some fun multi-colored yarn. I picked up all of the supplies at my local craft store.

This would be super-cute with felt bunnies or chicks, too!

Here’s a shot of the garland and my Easter-ized mantel:

I think it’s pretty cute! And I love all of the bright, springy colors popping off our white mantel.

Spring Forward?

Is it really the end of March? If so, could someone please tell the weather patterns to start cooperating with the normal average temperatures and behaviors for this time of the year? I don’t know how much more of this dreary, snowy, rainy stuff I can take. It literally took everything in me to muster my bee-hind off the sofa yesterday, change out of my flannel pjs into sweats (yea, you read that right), and attempt to put together some springy/Eastery vignettes around the house. Who can get motivated for Easter decor when there’s two inches of snow on the ground? At this point, I firmly believe that it will be 35-degrees with grey, cloudy skies for the rest of 2013. Blah.

Anywho, here are a few signs of Spring that I sprinkled around our house…

My grandma made the eggs in the foreground – she even personalized one for me <3

Hopefully these little signs of Spring inside will encourage more signs outside. Hopefully.
