So, I had this crazy idea to try something different for Easter this year. I usually always make cards and I love doing that, but I wanted to branch out and try something out of my comfort zone! Well, this project was super fun, but extremely time consuming!:) I want it to be known that I did get them all delivered before Easter! Yay for me!!! Anyway, check out my first attempt making an Easter ornament and Mason Jar topper:
I love these shorty Mason Jars and I filled them with pastel M&M's (that's my husband's favorite part of this project! I told him he has to wait until after Easter to eat them as they make a cute decoration! That's not too mean, right??!!) The jar is topped with a paper doily and then the topper. The 3-D church with steeple is from Papertrey Ink as well as the trees. I totally fell in love with the church when I saw it on their website, especially how they made the windows for you to stamp them in a different color. When I think of Easter, I think of church so I knew I had to have this! The grass is topped with a couple flowers with pearls and to finish it off I made a seam binding bow with a stick pin and a "Happy Easter" tag.
Now for the ornaments:
I created hills out of brown kraft paper and stamped the "Happy Easter" sentiment right on it. On top of that is a grassy hill where the 3-D church is placed. The trees are placed on both layers to add some height. Silver twine, white seam binding for the bow and a sweet "Happy Easter" tag and well, there you have it!
A special project for a very special Resurrection Easter Sunday! Thanks for hopping on over to Kirby's Kards to check out my latest spring creation! Hope you enjoyed it!
Make it a great day!
