An Easter Creation for a Baby....

With Easter right around the corner, I wanted to make a few items for the display at the “Tea Party Castle”.  Even though I made them with Easter in mind, this would be the sweetest gift for a baby shower or for a baby’s nursery.  Here’s my latest creation…..




I added some glitter to the bunny and perched it upon some iridescent shed. That added just a bit of twinkle.I had picked up these plates at a thrift store. There was a set of 6 plates. Originally I was going to keep them for myself. I was thinking they would be wonderful for a girlfriends luncheon, but they were perfect for this project. They have a gold rim and I just love the pink rose buds.






I searched through all my pieces of glassware and found some items that I thought would be just the right combination for the top of the cloche. I love playing with the different combinations of plates and glass items. The possibilities are endless.


I added four different glass pieces to the top of the cloche and then finished it off by adding my favorite pink beaded garland.


Two different plates were used for the top. I combined a china white plate and scalloped glass plate.




I was in a creative mood, so here’s another combination I’ll share with you …..





I used a lid from a candy dish to top this cloche off!



Since it’s Easter I figured I would add a few new tassels to our display. I made a few of each and have added some for sale at my Etsy shop. Stop by HERE.  If interested,  I will ship them out priority Mail so that they will arrive just in time for Easter!



Can you see the crystal hanging from the bottom?




I added a wonderful LARGE round crystal that just peeks out from the bottom of the tassel.


I made a bunny tassel for my dear friend Shelly.
Here's the matching gift bag I made to put the bunny tassel in.



Sticking with the baby theme,
I also created a pretty tassel for the nursery.


Lots of pretty pink ribbons, mixed in with a wonderful flocked cream ribbon.


I hope I’ve inspired you to try and create a “one of a kind gift” for the next baby shower gift you need.
I'm sharing this post with the following links.  Stop by and see all the creativity...
