spring mantel with cute bunny butts

I had so much fun decorating my mantle for spring/Easter this year!
 
I usually don't decorate for Easter because of tax season, but I picked up the prettiest pack of double-sided scrapbook paper... I don't even know why I was looking at scrapbook paper. Then I was inspired by some pinterest "bunny butts" and the rest of the mantle just basically fell into place!
 
 



 
 
This cute Easter art was my original inspiration and then I searched and found this bunny banner template which I resized to my liking and traced onto scrapbook paper. I made the yarn pom poms and hand sewed them onto the bunnies. Finally, I used my sewing machine and a light colored thread to string them up!
 




 
 
 
 
 
The frames I already had on hand and I printed the bunny silhouettes free from here!



 
 
Hyacinths are one of my favorite flowers because they herald spring with the most amazing smell! I went into the grocery store to get milk and these fragrant little beauties wouldn't let me walk past without bringing some home!
 

 







The trees I had from a project last spring. They are just Styrofoam cones wrapped with yarn/twin and hot glued. Easy Peasy.
 
 

 
 
I think my picture taking skills have diminished due to lack of use... the mantle is even more adorable in person! I really love it!!
 
Now if somebody could just convince spring to actually show up... kids will probably be hunting Easter eggs in the snow this year :)
