Easter treats with peeps!

I made these super cute nests for my preschooler's little Easter party.
It was something he enjoyed helping with as well!
How to make your own:
Grab some Peeps, robin eggs, edible grass (Easter isle at Walmart, or you could color some coconut) and
the original Rice Krispies treat recipe.

Make the rice krispies according to the original recipe and press into muffin pans.
Hollow out the middle a bit and add edible grass, eggs and Peeps!

Easy as that!

She also has a great tutorial which you can find here.

I gave it a go, and it was super, super easy to make!
Perfect touch for my dining room hutch!

Burlap Bunnies!

Take a look at these little burlap bunnies over at The Little Green Bean.
Adorable right?

So I happened to have all the stuff to make make these cute bunnies.
Talk about easy!
Here's our version.....
So cute!!


Book Page Wreath and Eggs

So I saw this awesome wreath on tatertots and jello.
Gotta have one!
 And she actually has an awesome tutorial on exactly how to do it.
So I grabbed a book from the dollar store, a circle for the wreath, and some old plastic Easter eggs we had and started modge-podging (yes I used that word that I made up again).
Got the first one finished and was thinking how cool this is going to look.
But it was taking a little longer than I expected.
I figured it would go faster as I go along.
By the 3rd egg I had been sitting there for about 45 minutes.
And I'm thinking, how in the world did this lady seriously do all 50 or so she needed for the wreath. It must have taken her a week. Either that or I'm in serious need of some modge podging skills.
Needless to say, I ended up with 6 eggs completed in total.
They are awesome and I love them, but I still didn't get the wreath I wanted. :(
So, I put them in a jar...
Still cute, but certainly not a wreath.
Then I saw this idea here.
 Love it!!
Ok, I can surely roll up paper and glue it on right?
Surely I can!
And I'm off to work on my wreath.....

Pink and Black Girlie Girls Room

Every wonder what in the world you to do when you lower your crib mattress to the lowest level and you find that your crib skirt that you paid a fortune for is now way too long.  Here's a very cute solution.  Tulle.  Here, I used two spools of tulle that I bought at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each.  Added some black and white polka dot ribbon, also found 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby and simple tied it to the metal bars of the crib. Since I'm a super over protective mother, I have also never used the bumper that I also paid a fortune for, so I added cute accent pillows in the back of the crib that you can remove at night for safety.  So instead of paying another however much for new bedding, I simply converted to this oh so cheap version for less than $100.  I actually love this more than the original bedding I paid much, much more than $100 for.
Please ignore the non matching rocking chair. It's a family heirloom that I can't bring myself to ask if I can refinish.
Can't resist showing an up close pic of this.  This was also done with all 1/2 Hobby Lobby items.  Metal accent, coordinating ribbon, and added matching tulle that I used for the skirt of the crib.
