I am so happy to share my Easter yard decorations with you. I am going to limit my ramblings on today and just get to the photos. Hope you enjoy!
Do you like my wooden Easter rabbit? I had Donnie cut this out for me last year and I dry brushed it to give it a little rustic look. I have a very formal and traditional home so I can’t cross too far into the current styles of shabby chic and rustic without looking out of place but I think my little rabbit fits in nicely. She stood naked on her stand last year but this year when I pulled her out of the basement, Mary said she needed a flower crown. After I made her a crown with silk pink flowers, I decided to add some more interest by making a tray of pretty pink annuals at her base.
I used a rectangular terracotta plant tray and whitewashed it with craft paint and then rubbed most of the paint off. I added a few leftover pieces of wood that was painted white to add support. Here’s a closeup.
Below are some of the wooden figures I also made and painted last year. I have a happy little bunny with his own carrot patch…
I also made three sizes of eggs and painted them different ways to add interest. I threw in a few tulips, too. See my azaleas? I planted them two years ago and this is the first year they’re actually blooming. Soooo pretty! Also…the green leaves poking through the mulch is mint. This mint had taken over the front area of my yard when we bought our home over 10 years ago. I treat the mint like a weed and pull it up every time I see it–and it’s still here. If you ever purchase mint of any kind, take my advice and keep it in containers.
Here’s a painted tool box I’ve had for many years. I filled it full of pink zinnias and a beautiful silver spiller called Dichondra Silver Falls. It has the silver color that I love so much from Dusty Miller but softly trails out of containers…
Last photo. I made the pink tulip wreath last year, too. I’m weird because I like to coordinate my front door wreath and the surrounding decorations. Pink was the theme this year and I think it’s very spring-y.
Thank you so much for stopping by again today. I want to wish you a Happy Easter and hope that you enjoy time with family, friends, food & all things Easter.
Until next time,
