Easter Decorations

It felt so great creating a few Easter decorations to brighten up our apartment after a long winter!

I got these felt flowers and letters at Hobby Lobby for a dollar. I folded some scrapbook paper to make little Easter eggs. I love the cheery colors!

I used the leftover flowers to make a sweet little arrangement. I hot glued them onto drinking straws, arranged them in foam in a cute bucket I found for $.50 at Goodwill, and then used an old white t-shirt to cover the foam.

I found these "paint your own eggs" at the dollar store. I used sparkly glaze to brighten them up.

I love Easter, but it is so much more than pretty decorations. Easter is about death and life and becoming a new creation through the sacrifice of Jesus. I pray that I stay focused on this throughout the Easter season. Thank you Jesus for giving your life for me.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." 1 Peter 1:3
