I don’t get shopper’s remorse too often. I am totally that girl that online shops, fills her shopping cart, and then just as quickly convinces herself that she needs nothing that is inside. One by one the items are removed until I have nothing left. I am the same way at the retail stores. Unless I’m looking for something specific, I typically don’t buy much. My remorse tends to come in the form of, “Oh crap. I really should have bought that.”
In this case, it was a very light teal spray paint. I saw it and thought immediately, “I must do something with that color.” But then my mind got the best of me, and I started wondering what I would tell my husband that I needed a random color of spray paint for; I had no place to store it (because underneath the sink already contains ten other cans of spray paint); I didn’t have a project to use it with; I didn’t need to spend the $3.97 on a random can of spray paint (I mean seriously, four dollars? I am seriously stingy).Then it hit me. I knew exactly what I could make with the spray paint. I saw a cute Easter gift in a bell jar, and thought I could make it a little more difficult (because who doesn’t like to make more work for themselves). I searched for bunnies left and right until I finally found these three in the floral section at Michael’s (for less than $1 I might add). I took the lids off, laid them out to be painted, and stuck the bunnies right into the ground. I sprayed them all twice, and let them dry.
I used my glue gun to glue the bunnies to the top of the jar, and filled the jar with Easter grass and malted milk balls. They turned out so cute, I wish I had a party to bring them to. But because there’s inevitably a golf tournament on this weekend, my husband and I will be our own Easter party guests. Well, that and our cat Lucy. I’ve already bought her a one pound chocolate bunny. She’ll get through that thing in less than five minutes flat.
I attempted to create my own tags, but I just had zero creativity left in me, so I found these adorable ones on Lia Griffith’s, Handcraft Your Life. Clearly she is amazingly talented, because these tags are so cute.
What are you doing for Easter this weekend? Are you making any Easter treats for your friends?
