As you've probably noticed at your local CVS or Walgreens, the Bunny has arriveth. Now that spring is officially here and the uber-commercialized religious observance/"decorating holiday" known as Easter is just a couple of weeks away (early this year!), many of you may be scrambling to embellish your home with questionable pastel colors, cute baby animal trinkets, fresh-cut flowers, and sacrificial chocolate Leporids
. If that's the case, I thought I’d share a handful of standout, mostly handmade and/or eco-friendly home décor and gardening items of the non-plastic grass variety to mark this most joyous occasion. For even more picks, check out my "House bunny" post from last year
It's also certainly worth mentioning that Easter is also a prime time to resurrect the craft supply box from storage and create your own special DIY Easter decorations. Feel free to tell me about your favorite DIY Easter/springtime decorating projects (and no, egg-dying doesn't count) in the comments section!
