A week ago, while at a super cute shop in Denver called Talulah Jones, I saw the most adorable spring/Easter display. There were pompom garlands, and mini carrots, and chicks. Lots of cute chicks. I was struck with inspiration, and since I now have a great mantle on my new fireplace, I decided that I would decorate it. I am so glad I did. I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted it to look, but I definitely wanted a springy, Eastery theme. So while at Hobby Lobby, I spotted these adorable mini Easter chicks. Just the perfect size to glue onto some mini clothespins! I also grabbed some pink, sparkly pompoms, some white mini pompom trim ribbon, and an adorable rabbit figurine. I picked up the mini carrots at the cute shop.
Today after getting home from a weekend away, I went to work on my Easter decorating. I am not done yet but here is what I did get finished. I made the chick pins. First I got out my trusty glue gun and separate all of the chicks and clothespins. Then I started gluing.
After gluing my chicks on, I grabbed my pompom ribbon and glued my pink, sparkly pompoms on it too!
Then I hung the pompom trim up with the lovely robins egg blue ribbon I got at that same great store. I also got some super cute fabric carrots from the same shop. The designer of the mini carrots and the fabric carrots is Bethany Lowe Designs. Such cute stuff. I can’t wait to go back for Halloween decorations!
Here is the mantle so far. I’m not done yet. I have plans for a “SPRING” banner of some sort, so stay tuned. I also plan on modge podging those candle with glitter! Have you started your spring/Easter decorations yet?
