Weekly Idea-Share

This weekend I am hosting Easter for our family for the first time so I've been thinking about some simple (and inexpensive) ways to decorate. I got this idea from one of my absolute FAVORITE scrapbooking blogs from Stephanie Howell.

I didn't have as cute of a selection of paper doilies at my dollar store but I got some white round ones and used chalk ink, my favorite glimmer mist (it used to be called Peacock but I can't find the link, so I linked to one that is close to the same), and some yellow paint to color them springy colors.

Then I attached little embellishments to some of them.

Then I strung them on some silver stretchy cord and hung them up on a mirror that hangs over our fireplace. FYI - I don't like the mirror but we rent and it has to stay - so I work with it :(

I think it turned out pretty cute! SUCCESS - one easter decoration up! :)

I'll post more Easter/Spring deco pictures after the festivities. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
