Since it’s cold and fixing to snow, I figured there was no better time to bust out the Easter decorations! I usually prefer to wait until after Mother’s Day to get them out, but I think we need a little cheer.
I made these candles. Actually, I bought the candles. But I did decorate them myself. I simply hot glued a piece of ribbon all the way around and then hot glued an Easter embellisment over the ends. I find that hot glue works really well with candles since it will melt the wax a little and let the ribbon get good and attached. Just be careful not to touch the candle with the tip of your glue gun. That’s not good form.
Isn’t that an awesome deck screw? I took these pictures the day before yesterday when it was 70 degrees. And since it is now dark and cold and fixing to snow, I’m not going to go retake them just to get the screw out of the picture. Yeah, I’m a rebel like that.
Here’s a couple more terrariums. I seriously love these things. My mother asked me what I was going to do with all of them (I bought 3 more jars at the thrift store last week). I told her I was going to build floor to ceiling shelves and fill them with little miniature terrarium worlds just to creep people out.
This one is a Mason Jar. The moss hasn’t had a chance to thicken up quite yet. And that’s a bird hanging from the lid in back.
Here’s the top of the lid.
And here’s the other terrarium. The Easter bunny is zooming along. Probably on his way to church.
I should make a terrarium with a little church in it. Do you suppose a Calvary terrarium would be too over the top? Yeah, you’re probably right. That’s a bit much even for someone with I Love Jesus socks. But a Mount of Olives terrarium would probably be okay.
