Sorry it's been so long since my last post. We've been fighting seasonal allergies and catching up on some spring cleaning. Plus the laundry situation had gotten so out of hand it took me 2 days to get it under control again.
Anyways, I hit the Hobby Lobby yesterday and I've been working on a few things I wanted to share. This guy is one of my favorites. I was inspired by the one that I saw over at Ann's blog On Sutton Place.
My version is slightly different but still same springy-easter theme. For now he is located on our buffet in the dining room. I think he cheers up the room.
You can see from the reflection in the mirror that our dining room is open to the foyer so it's nice to have something fresh on the buffet to entice visitors inside.
This is the view from the kitchen doorway. It gives you better look at our buffet. It's a Duncan Phyfe style buffet that I bought on craigslist soon after we moved to this house. I have intentions of painting it but not sure what color and I don't want everything to end up painted white so for now it just stays as it is.
I thought I would be all fancy with the photo editing today to give you a breakdown of what this decoration cost me. As you can see the total cost was only $14. I already had the moss stuff and the plate and I picked up everything else on sale at Hobby Lobby. Have I mentioned that you should never ever pay full price for anything there - always print a coupon or wait for a sale.
This took me less than 20 minutes to put together and most of my time was spent breaking apart the floral stems (I used 2 although I could have gotten away with just 1) and arranging them inside the wreath.
Here's one last view. I think he's really cute and he would look great as a centerpiece for the dining room table or tucked on a side table in the living room.
