Remember when we were children and we had to make dioramas in class? I remember those very well. Even my children had to make them. Back then we used shoe boxes. Doing one of these again made me feel like a child. Especially playing with the Easter bunnies.
I purchased this container at Home Goods because I thought I could use it for garden vignettes which is what this is essentially, but you could use an aquarium or an open bird feeder. Let your imagination go wild. I filled this with an old oil funnel and placed the nest in it and surrounded it with the Easter straw stuff (not sure what it's called). These are paper mache carrots with feathery foliage. If you did this for an Easter buffet centerpiece, you could use real carrots with the tops.
I found the moss bunnies at Julie O'Keefe Home and Garden in La Canada. They are precious little plant stakes. I can use these year round. The roses are left over from last week's Trader Joe's bouquets. Yep! They are still beautiful, aren't they?
I wanted to do something with my clip art. Nothing like waiting till the last minute. Couldn't come up with anything brilliant for Easter so I cut a couple out and used double-sided tape and placed a couple to the back glass to make a back drop. Worked great. If I start the day after Easter, maybe I'll be ready to share 4th of July clip art before the last minute.
I stuck in a couple of the peat pots I did with the little wire handles wrapped in foliage.
I set it all on top of more Easter grass straw. I tossed in a few pastel glittered eggs and there you have it. I did remove the front glass from this so my foliage and flowers could hang over the edge. Also made it better for photographing. Like I said, this would be great for a buffet centerpiece. Thanks for visiting. The bunnies thank you too.
