Get Ready for Easter with Graphic 45!
Today, we are preparing for Easter! There's an Easter basket tutorial from Annette Green, and beautiful Sweet Sentiments inspiration from Katie Zoey Ho. You will leave basking in spring colors and flourishing florals.
"While perusing Pinterest for Easter ideas, I came upon several different Easter baskets which led to further searching for handmade basket ideas. I found a wonderful tutorial by Amanda Coleman on her blog Popper and Mimi back in May 2012 and followed her basic steps, making some slight modifications along the way. It took some time, but it wasn’t difficult and well worth the effort. A great rainy (or snowy) day project for those looking forward to Spring." ~Annette

Next, we have this breathtaking Sweet Sentiments Easter nest by Katie. So beautiful and perfect for a centerpiece of just for Easter decoration around the home.
"I built this big egg nest for last year’s Easter after I’ve seen various pins from Pinterest in how to make this nest using balloon and yarns. Due to the size (~8” tall), it took me a very long time to get in shape and get it all dried up. By then, Easter was gone… So I just chucked it aside. It was indeed a project half-done. By the time I retrieve this project out, certain parts of the yarn turned yellow (because I starched the yarn and this probably explains why). I wouldn’t want to throw it away even it’s turning yellow, I gesso the entire nest and spray some tea stain mist over it. At the end it turns out pretty look like a nest, much more realistic… Planting some easter eggs inside, it’s all ready for this Easter..." ~Katie
