I painted and distressed this 6 pack of Dollar Tree eggs.
I went to an Antique mall and came out with some bargains. Then I had to go to Dollar Tree to pick up a cute little bunny. So, basically I just added some rub on transfer carrots to plastic eggs, changed out the greenery on a carrot I had, changed the bow on the rabbit, coffee died some white filler to an off white and mixed it with some brown filler and created this 6” high x 12” wide display.
The little stand alone Peter Rabbit was a little 3 1/4”wide x 3 3/4” tall vintage sign with a fabric heart glued to it, probably from the 80’s. Danny sanded off the top and I repainted it white and made a copy of Peter Rabbit from a book I brought with me, cut him out, glued him on, then lightly distressed him and the white paint. Then I sealed him with a clear spray sealer.
Dry brushed metal cross wired to a dropcloth covered wire wreath form. Wire hanger in back.
I finished another nursing home door hanger. This one is for a friend for the birthday of her friend’s mom.
I reimagined a little Dollar Tree birdhouse with paint and stain, then sealed it. I painted a little wooden bird and glued it and a little moss to the birdhouse. I adhered it to a birch round to create a 4” high x 3” wide display. The original birds house is next to it to show what a difference a little paint can make.
The little posey pockets look like they could be tiny tin can pockets I’ve been making, but they aren’t. They are made from cardboard tubes. I saw someone do this by cutting a tube about 2” long, pressing the bottom together and gluing it. I painted them white.
I took the white part of a napkin layer I saved and used various stamps I had to make my own napkin, then cut and decoupaged the pieces onto the little pockets. I added dragonfly stickers to the board and to the pockets and filled the pockets with Spring flowers. I glued them in so they would stay.
I gave the grapevine some white dry brush over the original color of the sign.
