Spring Easter Decor - Block Shapes and a Pom Pom Banner

I have some simple, but pretty spring Easter decor to share with you today. 

I found these cute wooden shapes from Michael's for Easter. 

I also picked up the yarn since it was on sale. The color is called Holland, #142821. 

The scrapbook paper is from my stash and it is called Happy Go Lucky by Pebbles. 

Here are the tools that I pulled from my stash. 

I used some white acrylic paint, Decou-Page, a couple of sponge brushes, a pencil, and some scissors. I also used my glue gun (not shown).

I totally forgot to take process pictures, but for the wooden shapes I just traced the shapes onto my scrapbook paper. I cut the shape out and then used the Decou-Page to glue it down onto the wooden shape.

I then painted the sides with the white acrylic paint. 

If you have any paper that overhangs the shape, just use your scissors, craft knife, or a file to take it off. I like to sand the sides of the shape with a file and then outline the shape with some white acrylic paint.  I think it gives the look that the paper is meant to be on the shape, versus that "glued on" look. I hope that makes sense! I also put a coat of Decou-Page on top of the paper to seal it. 

Next, I took the yarn and made pom pom's. These are so much fun to make. 

If you need a tutorial, you can see how to make these on this video. 

Once I used up the entire roll of yarn making pom pom's, I pulled out my jute to make a pom pom banner. 

I just hot glued on the pom pom's about every 5 inches or so on the jute. Leave as much room as you need on each end for hanging the banner. 

The leftover pom pom's will be cute in a bowl as spring decor. 

I had one little pom pom that was the last piece of the yarn, so I hot glued it onto the bunny as a tail. 

I created these easy, but cute Easter decor pieces in one evening. 

I plan on using them on my spring mantel, so stay tuned for that post soon. 

Thank you for looking and visiting my blog. 

Hugs, Shelly

  1. Adorable Easter decoration stuff! Loved these bunnies a lot. Our son’s first birthday is coming so would like to make these crafts for his birthday. Also looking for affordable outdoor party venues in Chicago to host the party.
