Hey Y’all!!

I think Spring has finally sprung around here! All I can say to that is……WELCOME!!!

OH…and it’s about time! ;)

How about a little Easter inspiration today? My friends and I have gotten together to bring you a bunch.
I’ll be sharing a wreath I “made” and how to use it 3 ways.
At the end of this post you’ll also find 19 other great posts of inspiration as well. (more to come Thursday and Friday, so be sure to check back)

You know, creativity is a strange thing. It comes at the oddest times, I  tell ya.
But not usually when you need it to.
Sort of like trying too hard….and then….nothing.

Yep. I had nada for this latest challenge. But then it all fell together….like it usually does.
Most of the time anyway. ;)

Here’s what I came with…..

Easy EASTER decorations, 3 ways:Happy Easter Wreath - 3 Ways - artsychicksrule.com #easter #wreath

Okay, so it’s not phenomenal or out of this world fabulous…..BUT it is Easter decorations 3 ways. And it was EASY. ;)

I started out at JoAnn’s Fabrics (looking for fabric for a different project) and came across the above wreath.

It was originally 39.99 (um, no) and was on sale for 9.99 (yes).  But it was PLAIN.

See?

Okay, well, in that photo I’m already adding stuff to it. But you get the idea.

EGGS. That’s it.
They are really pretty, sparkly eggs though.

So I bought these 2 items to fill it in a bit. (flowers and those pearly things)
(and that really cool, colorful ribbon that I didn’t end up using :( )

I’m sure you’re wondering what that bunny is all about.
Well, that was a thrift store find and my original “inspiration” but it didn’t work out too well.
I had planned to put him behind the wreath (in the open area). NO, not so good.

Sometimes “vision” (what’s in this head of mine) doesn’t always come together like I “see” it. ;) ha!

So anyway, I’ll show you where and how the cute bunny ended up later. :)

Here’s what the wreath looks like with the added (and much needed) goodies:

MUCH better. Don’t you agree?
It needed that. Then maybe 39.99….no, still no. ;)

Here it is on my front door.
And oh! I sprayed my hanger black to match my door. Thanks friends!

I can also hang it on the big window on the front of my home, as shown below.

Or how about on the Hall Tree (that I painted AND put on my front porch!! ;) You can see the “before” and  read about it—>here)
And I LOVE it there, by the way. It is incredibly welcoming and inviting to me.

But then inspiration struck.

The wreath was boring to me. Even with the added “fluff”. Borrrring.

So I made this….

That can be used as is (like you see above).

OR….like this:

 YES. That’s it!!

There it is.
My EASTER inspiration for you all!

What do you think? Better with that, right? Or not. It can go either way!

I will have the tutorial on the “Happy Easter” framed picture next week. Super easy!

And do you want to see what I did with that bunny?

Here….

Poor thrift store bunny needed some love.
So I removed the lace around the edges and added some glass beads…and a ribbon…and hung it on the mirror in my foyer.

See my sweet “3rd child” laying at the door? Her favorite spot to “people watch”.

Although, she looks like she’s sleeping on the job in this photo. ;)

Hope you enjoyed my Easter inspiration, 3 ways. Well, technically is was more like 5 ways but who’s counting?

  1. It looks perfect! Love how you embellished it! Just adds such a spring like welcome! Of course I loved how you painted the hall tree and also where it landed on your front porch! Happy Spring and enjoy the beautiful day ahead… may not be quite as warm as I’d like but love the sunshine!

    1. Hi Lynn!

      Thanks so much. :) Oh yes, it’s been so gorgeous this week! I would like it a bit warmer too but I’ll definitely take it! ;)
      Hope you have a fabulous rest of the week and weekend!

    1. Thank you Christy! :) Inspiration hit late!! lol As in yesterday! ;) The poor bunny…I spared the post all he went through! (removing, gluing, ungluing, putting him back together haha)
      xo

  2. Nancy,
    I have pinned almost every picture in this post. Each idea and inspiration is perfect. I like the additions to the wreath. So sweet and just what it needed. Then the addition of your sign is perfect!
    I would have never thought of adding beads to your hoop. Such an updated look.
    Thanks for sharing! LOVE it!
    Make it a fabulous day!

    1. Awww thanks Meegan!! :) That is so sweet!! And the bunny, yes, poor thing! It needed something for sure! ;)

  3. Very cute wreath, Nancy! I love the embellishments you added. Totally made the wreath. I really love the bunny, too! That is just too cute! xo, K

  4. Nancy, I LOVE it! I also NEED your wreath.. sadly, I am wreathless :( LOL We must have had the same creative block yesterday.. I just wasn’t feeling it…how funny. Your project came out spectacular and I love the interchangeable pieces!

  5. I love what you added to the wreath- those flowers and little springs are beautiful with the eggs. And adding the removable sign is a perfect touch! And I like your hall tree too- it makes the porch look even more inviting! Thank you so much for joining the showcase this week Nancy. :)

  6. The flowers and sprigs definitely fill out your wreath and the addition of your sign is the perfect finishing touch. I love your hall tree on your porch and know that you’ll have fun for different seasons decorating it. I’m glad you saved that thrift shop bunny in the embroidery hoop. He’s extra cute with his update.

  7. Hi Nancy,
    My projects never end up as I envision them in my head. I’m so glad I’m not alone in the world ~ maybe we’re kindred spirits?? :) I think it’s cool how you embellished a simple egg wreath and really made it wonderful for Easter! And can I just say the bead touches on little bunny are perfect.

  8. I love it on the “tree” – really pretty. I am glad I am not the only one who’s visions don’t make the cut the first or second time.

    1. Thank you Ellen! You like how I painted my hanger??! ;) The obvious just escapes me at times. Looks so much better now..duh!
      And no way, my visions are always hit or miss!
      Have a great rest of the week!
      xo

    1. Thanks Andi!! I love sparkly anything! ;) And thanks…that’s not always the case (looking better after my hands get on it)!! lol

  9. Nancy, Don’t you just love it when our animal family member photo bomb our photos! She looks like she’s on guard! :) I love your wreath and especially the story of your vision. You always knew something needed to be in the middle of the wreath and you found the perfect thing. I also like the modernization of the thrift store bunny. Funny a few years ago we were adding lace to everything and now we’re removing it. :) ~Jeanette

    1. Thanks so much! And yes, I do..and she ends up in so many of them! ;)
      It is so funny our likes and dislikes of style evolve!! (and come back around!)
      xo

  10. $40.00? Who do these people think they are? So glad you found it on sale! They are adorable and you have so many amazing places to put them!! Love Love Love!!

    1. I know, isn’t that crazy?! But, of course, I’m sure it’s marked that way so it can be marked down. ;)
      Thanks so much, btw!!

      Nancy

  11. I love your wreath, Nancy, and that ‘outside’ hall tree is gorgeous!
