Easter Centerpiece Video segment from today

Today on WBKO Midday Live we made an adorable bunny centerpiece for your Easter decorating.  We used a 12-14" grapevine wreath, moss mat, moss rocks, greenery and spring flowers.  Quick and easy project.  They only keep the video link like for a few days so if you want to watch click on the links here

Kirkland's got in these cute mossed birdnest baskets for $9.99. They stand about 13-14" tall. This is what it looks like plain.

I cut up a few dogwood stems from Hobby Lobby and added to the basket as well as a few sprigs of pip berries.  I want to get different eggs but this is all I had on hand.

Deco Mesh Easter Mailbox Decor

I have a love/hate relationship with my mailbox. I live in a sharp curve and this really slippery when wet. After losing multiple mailboxes, including the indestructible ones, we put up a pole box. It is just a pole with a box, UGLY!!!! But I have found I can dress it up easily for the holidays. There is a retirement home a few blocks away and many of their residents were customers of mine over the years. So they like to see my mailbox decorated up. Today was a BEAUTIFUL day. 70 and sunny on March 1st. Super nice after yesterday's severe weather outbreak here. We are supposed to get that again tomorrow :(. But in the meantime I needed to decorate it for Easter.     

The top part features an Easter Basket overflowing with spring flowers. The "grass" skirt is actually deco mesh that I have used a slicing technique on to create the layered effect of grass.

At the base of the pole I added another basket of flowers and a Easter bunny peeking from it.

Lots of swirls and puffs of several different colors of deco mesh wrap around the pole.
