DIY Easter Eggs

Easter is among us, as from mid-February to April, mom’s shop at Target, and grab any cutesy, dollar-friendly, Easter item they can find. This year, I am proud to say I didn’t fall into the Target trap (as I only purchased 2 things this entire Easter season at Targte! This Easter, I ended up DIYing the most adorable Easter eggs using craft eggs from Walmart!!!!

Walmart has been a favorite place for me to shop at lately. Although, I can save the 5% using my Target RedCard, and also use Target Cartwheel, I’ve found many of my go-to’s currently at Walmart, and also without walking out purchasing things out of impulse.

We can all agree that Walmart isn’t the fanciest place to shop, as the crowds can attract all sorts of people with different backgrounds, shapes and sizes, but if you put that aside, you know you can get a few more things at Walmart for cheaper, and also save a whole-lot more other than falling into that Target trance.

This April, I was able to score some adorable DIY Craft Eggs from Walmart for $2 ($1.98 to be exact!)  The craft egg selection was huge this year! From chalk craft eggs, pastel chalk, to confetti filled Easter eggs. I purchased the plain eggs as I knew I wanted to paint a few to add a touch of my own personal crafty style in my home.

All the supplies I already had, but if you don’t have these art supplies, these are things you’ll be able to purchase all at Walmart in their craft section, for really inexpensive prices too!! ($1-$3each)

What You’ll Need:

  • Easter Craft Eggs
  • Acrylic Craft Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Paint Pallet

Directions:

There’s really no hard-fine rules to this craft, because it’s all on your creative style! I just went with a few solid painted eggs, and added some spring flowers. Others, I did stripes, polka-dots, and other jazzy Springtime prints!

Floral Prints:

Above is a closeup on how I painted my eggs with my spring flowers. The top picture shows step-by-step exactly how I create them!

Helpful tip:

It’s all about blending and overlapping colors!!!!!!

Aren’t these eggs the cutest?!?! I seriously was in the zone while making these (along with binge watching the Gilmore Girls on Netflix!) When complete with your crafty eggs, style them in an egg carton filled with Easter egg grass, or paper filling. I had some from the DollarTree, and also purchased my egg carton from Target (The one other Easter item I purchased from Target all month!)

Low Budget Easter Buys

I’ve been really close-fisted about festive decor lately. As much as I want to walk into my local Hobby Lobby or HomeGoods, I just don’t want to fall into the trap of buying Spring decorative pieces that are over priced. Check out a few purchases I’ve made within the past month, from candies, Easter decor, and other Spring seasonal accessories.

Easter Decor – Spring Signage | Target

Target’s selection is fairly cute in with their Spring & Easter items. I’m guilty of purchasing this super cute Spring wooden sign, which cost me $3. I really held it down this year going to Target, and not purchasing every single Easter item in sight. I seriously deserve an award.

Easter Decor –  Little Accents & Sweet Treats | The99CentOnlyStore

Besides buying everything from Target for Easter basket items, I wanted to check out the 99CentStoreOnly. This place, always surprises me. After checking out my local 99CentStore, I spotted these adorable bunny figurines for how much……$0.99 girl! So I just bought 2. Just two. I had to hold myself back….


A few favorite things I also like purchasing from the 99CentStore are candies and treats. I was able to score some Ghirardelli Chocolate, Mini M&Ms, and also Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mini Easter egg carton. All great and favorited chocolate brand named candies, the kids are familiar with, at affordable prices!!

After the 99CentStore, my budget saving booty wanted to check out what Walmart had in store for the Easter season. Boy was I blown away!!!!!!

Easter Decor – Festive Garland | WalMart

From decorative Easter eggs, chalk craft eggs, to Welcome signs, and so many other baking, and crafting items at affordable prices, I didn’t know where to begin. I went ahead and purchased the spring carrot garland, which was about $5, but it was something different that Target didn’t have. So of course, I snatched it – and is currently hanging on my fire mantle. I honest to god love this garland.

Paired with my carrot garland, I noticed I was missing some greenery on the top of my mantle, so I checked out Michael’s to see if there was anything I could purchase, that could balance out the carrot charm from Walmart.

Easter Decor – Faux Greenery | Michael’s Craft Store

Michael’s usually has a 40%-50% off their spring florals during this time, so purchasing a $14 faux green foliage garland at $8, is totally justifiable. Purchasing a green garland to accent my Walmart burlap carrot garland, pairs perfectly together, as it brings the spring feeling into my home, sitting right within my family living space.

What have been your favorite spots to shop for the Easter holiday? Any places worth checking out, that won’t break my wallet?!?!

Spring with Green

Pantone has released their new Spring Color of The Year, and has declared it as “Greenery.” A color that is natures neutral and sprinkled around everywhere within Mother Nature herself. As greenery can be a bold beautiful color, (check out Pinterest, and other Pantone inspiration HERE.) I can understand how it can be a little intimidating to style with in your home. For most of us, you can interpret the Pantone color of the year to be the light fresh yellow green you see within lemon trees, but as for I, I can interpret it another way….

Before I even knew about the Pantone color of the year, I already a color scheme already selected for my living space to represent the spring season. Below, I had my obligatory Target ‘Bloom,’ garland, styled on my Craigslist purchased IKEA hutch, with birch wood logs, and my birds/bird cage sitting high above.

To me, this represents the spring season perfectly within my home. With small touches, a festive garland, and Ross/Michael’s Craft store items, I was able to create a small vignette of spring, using a bit of green hues.

The shade of greenery can be bold and brave as it reminds me of greens and foliage. I love incorporating the color with small touches of its authentic form….Through fresh foliage and green plants.

Below, is a picture of my current dining room. I love simplicity, with a touch of rustic, and distressed wooden textures. From pastel greens on my wooden buffet table to my distressed wooden end chairs of my farmhouse dining table. I love painting furniture with a little green inspiration. Wooden textures are my favorite, so styling with something as fresh as wild florals and a green house plant, gives off the fresh feel vibes of greenery to the room.

The greens from the fresh foliage automatically gives the mood of spring don’t you think?!

I swoon over textiles, furniture, and organization! My house is always changing. Just like how I like updating my mugs! I go through obsessions of styles, patterns, current trends, and always shop with a frugal budget. I’m constantly adding new things to my shelf, re-arranging, and also styling with decorative boxes, baskets, and throw blankets. Who doesn’t enjoy a good throw blanket?! This is the area of my blog, where you could see all the corners of my home, from buffet table styling, to coffee table reads!

have you incorporated the Pantone color of the year within your home?! Or at least tried — like I did?
