Rustic Easter Fantel

Hi, everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start!

Yesterday, I decorated my fantel for Easter by bringing together some things I had around the house and some Easter decorations I made last year. 





 You might remember these decoupage eggs from last year.

 And my little bunny tray. 

   This bunny bunting was my new Easter project for this year.  I made it yesterday. 

 The Beatrix Potter illustrations are from the pages of this 60 cent thrift store book. I was so happy when I found it a few weeks ago. I copied and printed my favorite bunnies on white card stock, mounted them on script card stock, then glittered them with German glass glitter around the edges and hung them from twine.

The back of this book says that Frederick Warne & Co. is the owner of all rights, copyrights and trademarks in the Beatrix Potter character names and illustrations. The illustrations used for my bunting are for my personal use only. 

Illustrations by Beatrix Potter

I don't think there are more charming bunnies to be seen at Easter time than Peter Rabbit and his friends. They remind me of happy times reading to my daughters when they were little girls snuggled in my lap. 

You'll find tutorials for the decoupage book page eggs and bunny tray, along with other Easter projects from last year, by clicking on the photo of the Easter tags on my sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. 

I hope the rest of your week is just fabulous!
