Decorate to Celebrate #47 - Easter

For the Spring Blog Hop, click HERE!!
For My 2nd Blogaversary Giveaway, click HERE!!

Happy Wednesday!! This is the first of two posts today. For the Spring Blog Hop, please scroll up. It's time for a super-fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! For Challenge #47, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for an Easter Get-Together, Party or Event. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about bunnies, chocolates, Good Friday and the Resurrection with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more  :)


For my Easter party, I created an Easter basket with decoupaged Easter eggs. The paper is from First Edition Spring Feast stack. For the base, 2 four inch strips of paper were punched with an EK Success scalloped edge punch. They were scored every half inch and then the two sheets were pasted together. Four inches was trimmed off, and then the two ends were attached together. It was then hot glued to a cardboard circle base. Another larger circle was placed inside and keep the sides fanned out. The handle is braided sisal ribbon, hot glued to a piece of wire. The tag is a Marvy Uchida tag punch. Happy Easter are letter stickers.


Bits of the paper were torn into small pieces and then Mod-Podged to a plastic Easter egg. They are resting on a nest of white tissue paper, torn into thin strips.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - March Linky Party
  2. Sunday Funday #7 - March Linky Party
  3. Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky #2 - Easter
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Easter project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, this is such a beautiful and sprightly Easter basket! :o) I love the papers, the pretty scalloped trim, and of course the fantastic eggs. Such a brilliant idea to create your decoupage look to cover plain ol' plastic eggs! They look incredible. :o) The handle is so rustic and pretty, and I just adore the sweet tag. This project is precious and will be such a sweet accent to Easter celebrations. :o) Marvelous work as always, my dear Lisa! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
