$3 Easter Egg Decoration

I'm all about an inexpensive find...especially when it looks good. I give you the $3 Easter Egg Decoration that you can do too!

How and where you say? Target is selling a package of six faux Easter eggs for $1...with the grass! I know. Hobby Lobby sells a dozen faux eggs for $7, but they do look a little nicer having a more natural look. I actually used both in our house to get more bang for my buck.

But back to the $3 decoration...

What you need:
- cake plate
- glass dome
- packages of faux eggs from Target ($1 per package)

How you do it:
- place eggs in upside down dome
- place fake straw on top of eggs
- put cake plate on top of dome
- flip dome over

How easy and simple is that? I hope you Love it!

Easy Bunny Silhouette Project

Hippity Hoppity Easter's On It's Way!  Do you have 10-15 minutes of free time? What about white paper or cardstock?  Yes?  Let's make a bunny silhouette for some inexpensive (practically free) Easter decor!

How you say?  Below are the step by step instructions:

1 - Go to and print out the bunny clipart onto regular paper.

2 - Cut out the silhouette of the bunny, trace onto card stock and cut shape out of white card stock.

3 - Find anything with a flat surface (and the size you would like) and wrap burlap around object.  Use hot glue to secure.  I used a flat artist canvas panel I had lying around from a project I goofed on.  You can use anything from cardboard, a cereal box, a shoe box lid....literally anything.

4 - Hot glue card stock bunny to front of burlap panel.  Try to use as little glue as possible and smooth out the glue quickly with clean hands.  Annnnd you're done!  How easy is that?

You can make this project as large or as small as you like.  Whatever works for your space.  I adore how simple and sweet this little guy (or gal) is.  It really stands out but works well with what I have out for Easter.

So what are you waiting for?  Start on your little bunny and please let me know how it goes.  Everyone could use some bunny cuteness in their space.  Happy Easter!
