My Easter Mantel

| | | |
I kept the decor for my Easter mantel very simple.
 
 
I painted some inexpensive clay pots white and hot glued pink and blue ribbon on.  Then tied bows up under each one of the galloping bunnies.  Do bunnies gallop?  Me thinks not.
 
 
I think these eggs from Dollar Tree are really cute.  I simply clamped them shut over a length of ribbon.  Easy peasy – although I will admit it was mildly annoying when a few of them kept falling off!
 
 
For added interest, I brought my concrete bunny planter in from the deck and filled his little cabbage up to overflowing with more eggs.
 
 
I placed him on the hearth with my antique chair, added some colorful pillows and called it done!
 
 
So there you have it – my very, very simple Easter mantel.

    Hi, it’s my first time here. I really like the simplicity and colour of your mantle. And, just to let you know, bunnies do gallop. I should know, I spent half my teenage years galloping after one. Sheesh! Lol.

  10. A bit late, but I just discovered your blog and was drawn to the “bunnies” tag, being a bunny-a-holic. I just bought two of those galloping bunnies on clearance at Pier 1 a few days ago, and was wondering just what to do with them — now I know! Think I’ll get a few more, since I love the repetition.

    And yes, bunnies do gallop – we have five, and when one gallops across the upstairs catwalk, it sounds like a herd of buffalo. We call him a “7-pounder” when he does that (weighs 7 pounds and pounds the heck out of the carpet, hehe). Technically, it’s called “doing the bunny 500.”

    I have the same rabbit planter as you — I just usually stick an African violet in it and never thought to pile eggs in it. Thanks for the great ideas!

  11. I have a concrete bunny just like that!!! I will have to clean him up and bring him indoors!!! Great idea!
