Easter Ribbon Wreath

Our front door is usually the first place you catch a glimpse of an upcoming holiday or new season.  So far this year, I have been a little slow to get a new wreath up.  My goal for Easter was to get a new wreath up before April 1st and I just barely made that goal.  My Easter ribbon wreath was finished on March 31st and I put it out on the morning of the 1st. Score!

30 Spring Craft Ideas

Spring officially sprung back in March.  But, with almost a foot of snow on the ground and super cold temperatures, it was hard to really welcome spring in at the time.  Mother nature is funny that way I guess.  Of course, that didn’t keep from cruising Pinterest and day dreaming about warmer temperatures and bright spring colors.  I found so many great ideas that I decided to make a collection of 30 spring craft ideas so that you can be inspired too.

Pom Pom Napkin Rings

For Easter, we usually go visit my in-laws and have Easter brunch in the dining room of their retirement community.  Nobody cooks and there is no table to set.  While it is nice to have zero work to do, I do miss getting my house and table all dressed up for the holiday.  This year, we are actually going to have Easter at our house and I am super excited.  But, Mathlete has put a major spending freeze on house stuff so I can’t run out and buy a bunch of new table decorations.  So, I decided to make some instead and started with pom pom napkin rings.
