April 5, 2014 — Easter is but a few weeks away and the Torie and Tristan household is aflutter with spring and Easter decorations. Well, a decoration. I’ve designated the perch behind our couch as Easter Zone. I thought I’d share a few shots that resulted from my quest for Easter inspiration a few weeks back.
Meet Francis the bunny and Darling the chick:
Now meet Henry, bunny #2:
I’m all about easy, mildly ghetto seasonal art that I can print on whatever black and white printer I can mooch off of. To create the innards of the four frames, I first sought out a gardeny-spring, reminiscent-of-Biblical-scrolls type font. Success. I then typed white “allelujah” and “he is risen indeed” text into 8″x8″ black text boxes in Word, printed, cut out the boxes, centered them on white scrapbook paper and popped them into 12″x12″ record frames. I grabbed a clip art cross, bunny and chick from online and pasted them into Word, centering them on standard 8 1/2 by 11 paper. I didn’t even have to cut these out, I simply popped them in the matted 8 1/2 by 11 frames I already had. Don’t mind the reflection…
Good enough! I mean, this is Easter we are talking about – a tier three decorating holiday at best. For the next tier one decorating holiday, Halloween, I will definitely be exploring gold-foiled prints from SS Print Shop. Moving on…
Here’s the zoomed out view:
I am obsessed with these flower balls. I originally purchased them from Etsy from Curious Floral Crafts as centerpieces at my wedding, and this is the first opportunity I’ve had to repurpose them. Each flower is made of sola wood, so technically it’s “natural.”
Happy early Easter! I hope you enjoyed meeting our new little pets and taking a peek at our Easter vignette. What are you doing to celebrate? In true newlywed form, Tristan and I will be toggling between two sides of families; thankfully, their celebrations do not occur on the same day.
