Spring Eggs

This may be what I'm seeing outside my window today-

but I'm thinking SPRING! We're going through our fourth snow storm since Christmas and being cooped up has given me lots of crafting time!

Here's a little egg display that I put together -

This was super easy. I just stenciled letters on some little eggs that I already had. Vinyl letters would have been much easier and probably look better, but I didn't have any. I just made do with what I had!

Next, I painted a little piece of scrap wood that I found in my garage, hot glued some floral moss on top, and glued my little eggs on top of that.

This was super easy and cheap is an understatement here! I already had everything I needed, but this would still have been really inexpensive if I had to buy the supplies.

I'm not decorating for spring yet, but I'm thinking warm, springy thoughts to stay warm while being snowed in!

I'm joining 20 below Thursdays at Christina's Adventures

This is SUPER cute!! I'm going to bookmark this for a little bit later in the season...we just got dumped with about a foot of snow, and it doesn't look like spring is too close here! BUT that doesn't mean I can't enjoy your very cute display :)

Thanks so much for linking to "20 Below Thursday"!!
