Tiny Easter Table Decor

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/03/tiny-easter-table-decor.html Easter Table Decor Tim Holtz Sizzix Wildflower Stems Springtime Side-Order 1

Hello! I've been having fun making these table decorations using Tim Holtz Wildflowers Stems Thinlits sets 1 and 2 and his Springtime Side-Order set. I started with some different pots I altered, but they seemed too dark for Easter decorations. Perhaps they'll make an appearance in the future.


I found these three cute pots in my potting shed, and I thought they would look perfect for Easter if I shabbied them up. I made them over with Ground Espresso Distress Paint and (sadly) discontinued Crackle Paint. After layering these two products on and allowing them to dry, I smeared and smudged with Distress Crayons in Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain to highlight the cracks.

I love how some of the crackle paint chipped away in places for a real shabby look. All of my springtime cuties were cut from scraps.

The green/blue grass and flowers were cut from a background panel colored with Distress Oxide Sprays. All of the purple/lavender stems were water colored with Distress Markers and inks.

 I added another tiny butterfly to the back so it would be pretty from any angle.

 The bunny is my favorite, but I guess that goes without saying since I LOVE bunnies! The grass is just the stem part of a few of the Wildflower Stems.

You can get an idea of how tiny these are when they are held in my hand. Excuse the nasty hands...I've been doing a lot of gardening in my real garden, too.

I hope you enjoyed my little paper Easter parade as much as I enjoyed making it! I made these especially for the Miniature/Tiny Things Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge with my crayon smudged pots with the Tim Holtz Addicts Facebook March Challenge in mind. I hope you enjoy your Sunday! Hugs and Blessings! Sara Emily

  15. These are little pots of cuteness Sara what a super way to use those die cuts. Seeing one in your hand really does give us an insight into just how tiny they are. When I worked with pre-school children they would decorate paper baskets with flowers and Bunny themed elements for Easter, the hours I spent cutting those bits and bobs out. Those dies would sure have helped back then. So glad I walked back and found this today, brought a happy smile to my face.
