{Easter Decor Moss Bunny}

Usually I'm ahead of the game when it comes to decorating for the holidays. This year? Not so much. Seems like its flying by before I can even think about grabbing decorations! Even though Easter is this weekend, I'm not letting that stop me from putting up some Easter decor. I LOVE bunnies. I'm not even joking its bad. So when I saw Moss bunnies on Pinterest, I knew I had to get my hands on one. Or two. :)

My Pinspiration HERE

I didn't read any tutorial, I saw the picture and bought some stuff.

Here are the supplies

Also, a glue gun! The moss bunny was found at Hobby Lobby, the moss and floral block was from the Dollar Store. The wooden box from Ross.

Close up of the wooden box found at Ross.
How cute is the box? Its got chalkboard in the front so I can write something on it. Best part it was only 3.99, originally I was going to make it in a pot but I thought this could work.

First I cut the floral block and stuffed it in the bottom of the box.

Then I used my glue gun to put glue on the floral blocks and grabbed small bits of moss and pressed it into glue. (Move fast and use small amounts of glue at a time, it dries fast!)
Then stick the moss bunny in the middle of the box.

I love this little guy :)
Last one!
For now he's sitting on my table by the front door, I might change that when I drag out all my Easter decor.

{Pictures on Curtain Rod}

I'm here this week to share a DIY project I did about a week ago. While I've been busy painting my moms house, I've also been doing some DIY's on the side. My mom need some new decorations around her house so I wanted to surprise her with this.

If your on Pinterest (which you should be lol) you'll see these all over. There are soo many different ways to make them but here is what I used.

You will need:

*Dollar Tree picture frames (you could use more expense ones but why???) I sprayed these white, here are the ones I bought.
Simple and cheap, plus you can paint them ANY color.
*Hot Glue Gun
*Curtain Rod (I got mine from Dollar General for $10)
*Spray paint, Optional

First, I spray painted them white let them dry. Then I took the ribbon and figured out where to put them and how long I wanted them to hang. I also made some bows with the same ribbon and glued them to the ribbon. Then attached the frames to the ribbon, I just used ALOT of hot glue. 

Then put your pictures in and hang on the wall like you would when you hang it for curtains.

Here is another view with the pictures in.
I love the way it turned out, so did my mom. I can't wait to make one for my house! 

Til next time,
