It’s no secret that I like my crafts easy, and inexpensive. These Easter decorations certainly fit the bill. They’re also completely darling!
Supplies needed to make your own Easter decorations trio:
- 8×10 Picture Frame
- David Tutera Whitewashed Distressed Frames
- Felties Bunny Kit
- Felties Easter Stickers
- Miniature Carrots (2 packs)
- 2 Point Flag (Pennant) Craft Punch
- Cardstock (I used 6×6 Core Couture, 6×6 Spotted Tillie Dot, 6×6 Spotted Jillian Dot, and one 12×12 sheet of purple Glittersilk)
- Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
- Mini Glue Dots
Just as a side note- my larger frame was found at a thrift store. It was a horrible powder blue color. I spray painted it silver. Frames can be expensive, and a small investment of a can of spray paint can make these types of projects easier on the budget.
Select what colors you would like for the backgrounds in your frames. I chose a light blue, yellow, and a glittery purple. Measure the inside of your frame and cut the paper to fit. An easy way to do this is to use the glass that came from the frame as a template. Trace around the glass onto your paper, trim, and it will fit perfectly.
Insert your trimmed backgrounds, and add the frame backing. You will notice in the photo that my backgrounds are glittery. Core Couture, and Glittersilk cardstock are staples in my projects. Core Couture comes pre-glittered like it was sprayed with glitter, and Glittersilk is full glitter paper. Both papers work great with die cut machines, and electronic cutting machines- and the glitter does not flake off! I love this stuff.
The first Easter decorations frame I completed was the Bunny. This was ridiculously easy. The bunny comes in a kit.
Everything is cut and printed accordingly.

Assemble the bunny:
On to the second frame. This is the largest of the trio of Easter decorations.
Choose some scraps of cardstock that look Easter-y.
Using a 2 Point Flag craft punch, create 12 pennant shapes.
(See that pretty purple Glittersilk cardstock?) Select the shapes you like from your package of Feltie Easter Stickers. There are 16 shapes in a pack, so you will have 4 shapes left over to make a card or something with. These stickers cost a little over a dollar. For the whole pack. And they are about the cutest things I have ever seen.
I removed the sticky backing from these little guys, and added just a bit of hot glue. I have very touchy-feely kids, and I wanted this project to last for many years.
For the final frame- I used mini glue dots rather than the hot glue gun because these darling little carrots are teeny- tiny, and I like having skin on my fingertips.
Use a couple of glue dots to adhere the carrots to the background. Arrange them how you like.
I chose to display my trio of Easter decorations with a simple green berry garland. The cheerful pastel colors make me excited for Spring!Google+
