I have been busy all day preparing for Easter brunch tomorrow. But I also found some time to craft and hit some yard sales. Here is the project I completed today.
I found the chip board P at Michael's after Christmas and paid 25 cents for it. I knew I wanted to turn it into something springy. I picked up some Reindeer Moss at the Dollar Tree (though I would recommend using a more solid moss for this project). I hot glued moss all over until it was covered then made a little nest out of a different type of moss.
The eggs are wooden Easter eggs that I painted my favorite aqua blue color and added a few speckles. The corner of the P was the perfect place for the sweet little nest. The aqua ribbon is left over from my wedding. After Easter is over, this monogram spring wreath will hang on my front door!
We also hit some yard sales today. I found these switch plate covers and got all of them for $3. I don't have any light switches that these will fit, but I hope to someday soon. They need to be washed but the details of them are what I got them for!
Do you know of other ways people might use these instead of switch plate covers? I am trying to think what else I can do with them but nothing comes to mind right now!
These zinc jar lids were $1 for all of them! The box is in bad shape but it is fun to read the text on it. Not sure if my lids will be used as lids or as something else. Have any ideas for these as well?
I can never pass up a set of sweet vintage embroidered pillow cases and these were no exception. I love the daisies and red hearts. Can't beat the price--2 for 25 cents!
And one more look at my monogram spring wreath. These colors make me so happy!
