Easter Scrumptiousness - Trees & Bunnies!

Spring Fever hit early this year, causing me to fight the winter blahs with some fresh, Easter-inspired scrumptiousness.

Filling a cute bunny tin with a large bottle brush tree, I then just stuffed it with all the colors of Spring.

Blues, greens, yellows, and purple came to mind.

Old mercury glass ornaments, vintage strawberries, purple glass beads for garland, flowers, Easter eggs and glitter. Lots and lots of glitter!

Boy, I've heard of bunnies multiplying, but this is ridiculous!

Aren't they sweet? They stand about 4 inches tall and are needlefelted using alpaca wool. Their faces are all vintage doll heads.

I just had too much fun making these!

My idea was to use pastel colors that resemble the color of Easter eggs.

It wasn't easy saying goodbye to these little cuties as I shipped them off to Jackie's store, Once Upon a Fairyland,. But, it's sweet to think of them sitting among mounds of chocolate and jellybeans in someone's Easter basket.

More to come!
