Easter Mantel

This year I have decided to start decorate more for the various holidays now that our daughter is getting older. Similar to what I did with Valentine's Day I decided I would also make a few new decorations for Easter and added them to our mantel. I first made a "Happy Easter" banner using my Silhouette die cut machine (if you haven't heard me rave about them you should check them out for yourself)

Then I made a simple egg decoration using buttons. I got an old frame from the thrift store and painted it yellow. I took the glass and other stuff out and cut a piece of white card stock paper to fit. I then drew a faint egg shape and began to fill it with buttons. I laid it all out first then went back and super glued all the buttons down! Easy, cheap and cute!

I also printed an Easter subway art picture from Eighteen 25 and put it into another old frame that I had purchased at the thrift store and repainted. It was also very easy and cheap to put together and it gave my mantel some fun pops of color!!
