Spring & Easter Decor

One of the things that I love the most about my living room is all of the windows and natural light that comes in, yet it leaves little space for decor. I love decorating for seasons and holidays and I really wanted my living room - where we spend most of our time - to be a bright cheerful place. I've been doing lots of DIY projects for spring and they look so cute on my fireplace!

I enlarged my Free Printable to a 16 x 20 (Only $5 bucks at Sam's Club or Costco - but be sure to select "turn off auto enhance" when ordering or you will get a yucky brownish tint to your prints) Then I added some of my most recent "Spring-y" projects up there to add more color! I brought the rosette flower balls down from the girls room and set them on my newly painted candle sconces - they used to be black. And speaking of spray painting, I also found that adorable yellow tile at a garage sale for 25 cents but it was a brownish black color. Oh, how I love my spray paint! I also saw an adorable Egg ornament tree at Anthropology for WAY too much money so I decided to make one of my own. Just took a few dried Oak Tree branches, gave them a thin layer of white spray paint and stuck them into a bucket. Sophisticated, I know.

The two things that took me the most time were the Spring Banner & the Paper Cones but they were so worth it because they bring in so much color! My kids especially love the cones because I fill them with little notes, small gifts or treats. Stay tuned for more pictures and tutorials on both these items!
