Can you tell I love spring? Preparing our homes for the season is so fun, and today you get to see some spring decorating ideas with velvet Easter eggs.
SPRING DECORATING IDEAS with VELVET EASTER EGGS
Before we start looking at some fun ideas for spring decorating, I wanted to say ‘thank you’ to y’all. The reason this blog is still kickin’ after just over a year is because of you. Getting to know you, seeing your comments, and learning with you makes for many fun days! Thank you for being such a HUGE part of this blog!
Now, on with the decorating!
And they’ve gotten a bit of attention, too! (Gotta admit, I did a happy dance when I saw that!)
So today, let’s take a look at some different ways to use these velvet covered Easter eggs.
Simple “Bowl Full O’ Eggs”
This simple bowl of velvet eggs adds a textural ‘punch’ to an open shelf or hutch. Just nestle two different sizes of pastel colored eggs in a small ironstone bowl. Add a sprig or two of greenery and some tiny flowers and you’re all set!
Add a little spritzer bottle to give an added touch of spring.
Using several colors of velvet (pink, lavender, aqua, and grey) in two different textures adds some interest to the collection.
(BTW… This is the first piece of ironstone I purchased… at the Goodwill for five bucks!!! Score!)
Spring Tire Wreath (Makeover) with Velvet Easter Eggs
This Unique Spring Tire Wreath was another popular diy project last year. So this year, it got a makeover!
Don’t you just love the velvet covered eggs with the lavender and white florals? And eucalyptus branches add just a touch of farmhouse, too!
Here is a full view of the spring tire wreath.
(BTW, it’s SO difficult to get a ‘face-on’ photo of my door. Inside it tends to shadow, and outside I have to hang over the stair railing to get far enough back. The neighbors get quite a show when I take outside photos! 😀 )
Update: (Yes, an update on the same day!) And then, when I woke up this morning, I remembered I had a light kit! (Photo learning curve… I think I need to just call it “PLC”!)
Spring Centerpiece or Vignette
There is a full post on how to create this Spring Centerpiece, which you can use as a vignette, too. As a matter of fact, I’m showing the vignette here again, but I changed two things. Can you spot the changes?
I couldn’t find the lavender velvet on my first shopping trip. I was tickled purple (see what I did there?) that I found it at another fabric store on my second outing.
The changes make me happy-sigh. 😉 I really like the ‘tighter’ color palette.
Can you tell I’m really diggin’ lavender and green this spring season?
Large Velvet Easter Eggs on Candle Holders
This is one of my favorite ideas. You can use large velvet covered eggs on candle holders! Add a little wreath around the base to steady the egg and you’re done!
Okay… I know this has nothing to do with the velvet eggs, but isn’t this little birdie so cute?
The large egg on the candle holder is makes such an impact, don’t you think? The velvet egg is a six-inch paper mache egg form with pastel blue stretch velvet.
Oh.. You want to know where to get this watering can printable? That’s easy! And there are more where this came from, too! Click HERE!
Such a sweet little vignette… perfect for a side table in any size home whether it’s small home, apartment, large home, or dorm room!
