Easy Easter Cloche


This is a re-post of an Easter project from last year, but with so many awesome, new bloggy friends, I thought I might share this quick and easy idea again! Sheep and I spent some time doing a few new projects during Spring Break last week, but we also started pulling out our Easter decorations from last year and this is one of my favorites. You might even have everything you need to complete this project at home already! So, what are you waiting for . . . hippity, hop to it!
___________________________________________________________

With all the other activities going on this month, Easter has really sort of hopped up on me - ha! But I managed to locate some of my decorations over the weekend and make a couple of new things too!  I don't have a real cloche, but I've seen lots of cute ideas using them, including nests, and decided one of my glass cake stands would work just as well for this project!

As usual, I put my own spin on it, by simply buying a small grapevine wreath and filling it with Spanish moss to use as my nest. I just love the springy color of this moss so I will be finding more uses for it!



The wooden eggs nestled inside were hand painted by my cousin many years ago and I just love them! Aren't they exquisite? She is a true artist! I have several more, but only three would fit in my tiny taste of Easter, so the others are up on my mantle in baskets - out of Snacks' reach! It will be nice when he's a little older and things can 'come back down,' but for now Easter will have to stay under glass!



I have a few uncompleted Easter projects from last year as well, including a new wreath for my door. Hopefully (or should I say Hop-fully?), I will get these wrapped up this week. What are you up to for Easter this year?

  20. First off, love the name of your blog and I'm so glad you linked up your fun cloche this week to BeColorful. I have never made one before because I thought they were a bit frumpy but yours, with the cake stand, is fresh and edgier. I have a cake plate and a faux nest.... so I'm thinking my cloche is almost there. :D

    Thanks for linking up.

    1. Yay! It's nice to hear from someone you've inspired! Funny about my blog name, it's a work in progress and just might be changing in the near future now that it's primary purpose has shifted from advertising my Etsy shop. We shall see . . .
