If you look through your seasonal decor, I bet you’ll find items that you once loved, but now they could use a bit of a face lift. Gather those items and make a plan for how to combine them into lovely Easter Decor DIY.
Easter Vignette Using Paint
I used this thrift store find tray a couple of years ago for Easter Egg Wreath. It held up well for two years, but it needed to be refreshed before using it again. Since I’m using what I can find in my craft stash, I decided to deconstruct the wreath and use the tray as a base for this Easter Vignette. It got a fresh coat of Kilz Spray Chalk Paint.
I sorted through my stash of florals and found these simple greenery stems. They are tied up with a teal ribbon bow.
This wood egg was also used for the wreath that I deconstructed. It needed a fresh paint job, too. It will be the focal point for the Easter Vignette.
Using DecoArt Chalk paint, the egg got a new look. To add embellishments to the egg, I used card stock, a circle hole punch, and twine. These are all lightly hot glued to the egg.
Attaching the egg to the tray was done by adding several lines of hot glue to the egg at the points that it touches the tray. Since the tray is curved, it was a little tricky to get it to adhere well. Once the glue was dry, I added more glue as a filler between the egg and the tray rim.
Another item I found in my craft stash is this wood bunny. I found this at the dollar spot at Target back in February. It’s trimmed in yellow and blue, so it needed to be painted, too.
The bunny got a coat of DecoArt Chalk paint. As I added the paint, I used an old cloth to wipe away excess and to smooth it out. Before placing it on the tray, I sanded the edges using a medium grit sandpaper sponge.
The bunch of greenery is arranged on the tray near the bunny. I added a few speckled eggs and a white clip on flower to it.
I added a piece of the teal twine around the outer rim of the tray. It’s hot glued in the back and at a few points along the way.
Searching through my spring crafting items, I found this little bird and nest. The bird was purchased at Dollar Tree a few years ago. I’ve had the grapevine nest for a long time. I added a little brown Easter grass and clear beads to the nest.
The wood house shape was also purchased at the dollar spot at Target. I painted it and used it for part of my St. Patrick’s Day Decor. For the Easter Vignette, I removed the shamrock and lucky decal and added the home decal. This was cut from a larger Dollar Tree decal. It’s dressed up with burlap ribbon, twine, and flowers.
Once I had everything painted and dressed up, the items are all arranged on the tray. The finishing touch was to add a small fabric flower to the front of the tray. These can be found in the sewing notions section or in the scrapbooking section of a craft store. I used some of them on a Spring Blooms Wall Art piece a couple of years ago.
