At Home: Spring DIY Decoration

Happy Sunday!  The day to sleep in late, have lazy mornings, and nest!  I can't do any of those things if I have a messy house...Instead, I try to make things all pretty on Saturdays so I can sit back and enjoy!  I mentioned last week that I am have a major crush on all things Pinterest!  I could pin all Sunday...

I found this image when I first started over there and knew that I had to replicate it!

From Pinterest:



And my own version made from scrappy supplies and some spools of thread from the $1.00 section at Jo'anns Etc.:


My butterflies are different, but the feel is the same!  I added in spools of thread that are springy, yet still match my living room decor. 


It sits in a trio of jars...I adore how Pottery Barn uses these jars, but they are sooo expensive.  All of mine are from Marshall's Home Goods at a fraction of the price.  I have the tall one full of moss and the largest with speckled eggs.


The inside contents!  I used the large Jenni Bowlin Chipboard butterfly as a tracer.  I don't use up the last of my chipboard shapes so that I can trace with them over and over.  I used Jillibean Soup papers for these (although I just got the Teresa Collins Notations line and could easily have used that as well!)  I added a string of Teresa's Blingage to add an unexpected sparkle. 

Makes me happy, especially on a Sunday!
