Easter Egg and Vase Decor {Craft DIY}

Happy Good Friday lovely people.  Easter is my favorite holiday and sadly I haven't decorated much for this Holy celebration.  I have been so busy (I'm always saying that!) and I won't dare go up in the attic to get my decorations.  The attic freaks me out so I always send the hubby to get my things; although he too is a very busy man this tax season.  Anywho, I started this craft project a few weeks ago and just finished it this morning.  Seriously.

Pink Texas Chick

I love how it turned out and I was inspired to do this after pinning this on my Autum board.


Here's how I made my eggs and vases:
1. I bought six clear vases from Hobby Lobby at 50% off and painted them on the inside with American acrylic paint in Petal Pink, Baby Blue, and Yellow Light.

This was a little tedious because I squirted the paint inside the bottle, swirled it around in all sorts of directions until it was fully covered (or almost).  I then let the bottle dry upside down overnight.  This also lets excessive paint puddle on the bottom instead of gunking up inside the vase.

2.  Next I painted a package of six styrofoam eggs in Sour Apple and Purple Cow also by Americana.  I used the same method I did with my Easter carrots and Halloween Eyeball wreath.

3.  While the eggs dried, I snipped some individual stems of Easter Lily flowers with my husband's nose pliers.  Why go buy some floral clippers of my own when his pliers work just fine?  :)

4.  I then used some white floral stem wire to insert in each egg.  I poked a hole in each egg with an unfolded paper clip.  After that I bunched it with some snipped Lily stems and used the stem wire to wrap them together.  I left some stem wire by itself at the bottom to help stand it up in the vase.

5.  Almost done now!  I spelled out EASTER on the vases with scrapbook adhesive letters that I've used in other projects. I peeled the paper off the letters and glued them on with my oh so trusty craft glue.

6.  I was going to leave the eggs plain but decided to add a little prettyness to them.  I found these stickers at Michael's on clearance just last week so I thought they would be perfect on the eggs.

And here they are all put together on display... on display (channeling my inner Melissa Gorga) and looking quite pretty on my entry table next to my mail tray.  I'm so glad I copied thought of this project after seeing it on Pinterest.  :) 

I hope you all like it too and my you have a blessed Holy Week and wonderful Easter.

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…
