Easter & Spring at Decorate To Celebrate!! :)

**It's time again to decorate your celebrations with a Challenge at Decorate To Celebrate!!**

For Challenge #47, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for an EASTER GET-TOGETHER, PARTY or EVENT!!  Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT BUNNIES, CHOCOLATES, GOOD FRIDAY and THE RESURRECTION with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!!  :)  Link up your project over at Decorate To Celebrate before 11:59pm (EST) on Tuesday, April 2nd to be eligible for YOUR CHANCE to WIN one of Rhonda's Mini Albums!!

Here's what I made for the challenge...

For my first project, I made one of my lighted glass blocks....  
The-Sweetheart drilled a hole in the base of the glass block so that I could put a string of white lights inside...  I like using the frosted blocks because of how soft the lights look when it is lit...
I found lots of beautiful flowers and accents to add to the top of the block -- I hope you think it's as bright and cheerful as I do!!  :)
I also made some of my hand-painted wooden signs in pretty Easter and Spring colors...
These are my two favorites -- "Show Me the Bunny" and "Oh, for Peeps Sake"...  tee hee...  Each sign was painted white before I hand-lettered the signs and then passed them off to The-Sweetheart to finish off with stain...  I then decided to add an extra touch with a homespun bow and a bit of white bittersweet...
Finally, I created a sweet arrangement that will be perfect on a table or shelf!!  The bottle is an up-cycled jelly jar that was painted ivory before I filled it with a spray of greenery, flowers, and bittersweet...
I wrapped the jar with a length of burlap and tied a homespun bow to the front...  I also added a sprig of bittersweet and a little purple flower with some greenery behind the bow...  I hand-lettered the "Spring Thyme" tag and pinned it to the bow with one of my "rusty" safety pins...  
And finally, I added one of these cute little feather butterflies to the arrangement...  It looks like it's getting ready to fly away because it's attached to one of my homemade "Wiggle Wires"!!  :)

I hope you've found some inspiration to join our new challenge over at DTC!!  For even MORE great ideas, be sure to stop over at the challenge blog to see what all of my wonderful DT sisters created -- Then, link up YOUR new project so we can come and check out your creation!!  :)
