Hi Blog Friends,
I’ve been busy working on some Easter/ Spring items and have a few pics to share with you.
This is a prim grungy rabbit made from a Tennessee Ridge Primitives pattern. I had this pattern last year and never got to make him, so since I wanted to start making prim Easter goodies, I just had to try this one out. He is a big guy sitting about 18” not including his ears or feet.
And lots of Easter egg bowl fillers! I mean lots. They have sold out in my booth for the last two weekends. I’m so glad people have found my little booth and are enjoying the items I make. It really makes me feel loved to know others really want to purchase the items I make to decorate their homes.
I love how these turned out. I have to admit, I stole this idea. I was in a little shop a few weeks ago and seen these little flower pot arrangements and fell in love with them. First, when I picked one up it had made in China on it so it’s not like a private designer and then the price on it about blew me away at $16.95 each. I just knew I could make something similar and a lot cheaper.
So here’s what I did. You take a 3 1/2 to 4” clay flower pot and paint the pot with burnt umber paint. I only did one coat and let some of the clay pot show thru. Then get some twig roping and form it to make a nest on top of the pot. Use rusty wire to hold the twig roping in it nest form. Once you have the nest the way you want it take a hot glue gun and run a bead of hot glue around the top of the pot and press the nest down hard onto the rim. Hold for a minute to let glue set. then you can use spanish moss to fill the pot and center of nest. Then embellish with a small flower, violet or a few small eggs. I made the eggs from baking clay, then painted and speckled them. I also tied a natural color raffia around the pot and added a tag. How easy is that! I might have to include one in my secret box. shhhh. Don’t tell.
Don’t forget to sign up for the giveaway! Drawing is Sunday 2/20.
