In other words, "Happy Easter!" Dutch-style.
Life has been pulling me in so many different directions these past few weeks. To combat the stress, I've been creating Spring, Easter, and Dutch-themed goodies.
I found this adorable little planter and couldn't take my eyes off it.
Bleaching a bottle brush tree gave me this gorgeous shade of cream, which I then sugared with glitter and adorned with vintage Christmas ornaments, flowers, and sparkly new Easter eggs.
I used a strand of glass "cotton candy" beads as the garland and was thrilled when I found these tiny vintage glass strawberries in my stash! I had forgotten about them so it was like finding buried treasure.
Her face is so cute I could just *smack* it!
Next, I used one of my white cherubs to create another Easter tree.
This time I focused more on the colors aqua, pink, and white as the predominant colors. The angel even has a piece of an old blue necklace around his neck.
If you've never dyed a bottle brush tree before, but would like to, give it a try! It's not difficult. Just be sure to wear gloves during the bleaching process; I discovered that the hard way.
More to come!
