Easter Bunny Silhouette Framed Art

I've never decorated for Easter before even though every year my kids ask me when I am going to! This year I finally decided to start. I was extra motivated to make some more holiday decor after creating my spring spring wreath because I have a son who's birthday falls on Easter this year and we will be having a big party at my house to celebrate both occasions.
          Using my St. Patty's card as an inspiration to create something else with a book page I came up with this simple and cheap framed art. It cost me only $1 total to make. I have always loved the classic black and white decor look and I've created a lot of black and white decorations for Halloween, my favorite holiday! Because it is Spring and this time of year is all about the beautiful colors I decided I did need a little pop of bright color to go with the black and white and so I added the blue spray painted plastic Easter eggs and displayed them in an old candle holder that I had.

                                       



          Printed this bunny image and cut and traced it onto black cardstock


                   Inked the edges of the book page to give it that antiqued look.

               
                     
Had some plastic eggs that I first sprayed them with a  flat white spray paint so that the colored gloss spray paint would stick and coat the eggs better...FYI if you plan on making the gumball wreath this would be be a helpful tip for that too.

  16. At this time it sounds like Wordpress is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  20. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I
    was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to
    no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  23. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

  27. Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why
    but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

  28. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about,
    why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving
    us something informative to read?
