Spring/Easter Wreath and The Bluebonnet Blog Hop

Happy Friday, y'all! Today I am joining my Texas blogging sisters in the Bluebonnet Blog Hop. Be sure to visit all the links for some Springtime inspiration!

Spring has sprung in Texas. The bluebonnets are starting to bloom and with the rain we've gotten this week, I'm sure they will be putting on quite the show shortly.

This Texas girl loves bluebonnet season! There is absolutely nothing like standing in a field of them and breathing in their unique scent!


To say I love Springtime in Texas is an understatement - it makes my heart happy to see everything bursting into bloom, leafing out, and the temperatures up in the 70's and low 80's. It makes me ready to celebrate!

With all the cute Easter stuff out there I have been inspired to create a Spring/Easter wreath.

I started off with a grapevine wreath I found at GW ages ago. It had some faded silk flowers on it I pulled off and ever since it has been waiting to be repurposed. It is really large so I knew I needed some kind of big elements to fill it up.

I was thrilled to find these carrots from At Home:

I tied and glued them on with my trusty glue gun:


Then I added these speckled eggs from World Market:

Next, I added a wooden rabbit I cut out using my scroll saw. I like that the lettering stamped onto the wood shows through my paint just a bit.


I added a bit of raffia and spanish moss and ta-da! Cute Easter/Spring Wreath for the front door!

Don't forget to visit all my Texas blogging friends!

How are you decorating for Easter?
Happy Spring! Hugs,
Cecilia

I've never used one and can't imagine that I would ever have the chance but I'm always amazed to see others creations. Your photos are stunning! As a Native Texan I've always loved bluebonnets! I'm a new follower and look forward to getting to know you.

  13. Cecilia,
    You make using a scroll saw sound easy. Somehow, I did NOT get the woodworking tool gene. I have a small scroll saw that just lies unused all the time. Whenever I use it, it jumps all over the wood. Aargh! Any bunny I made using a scroll saw would like it was scared to death because all the edges would be jagged. Your wreath is just great, no scared bunnies!
