Easter Centerpiece

Last year I made this Spring banner and wanted something new to hang the banner from on my dining room table.

I remembered that I had a box of quart sized canning jars in my garage, so I dusted off two of them and decided they would be perfect for holding the banner.

I used my Silhouette to cut the Happy Easter text and a few Easter eggs from the fuzzy white vellum. I used my Tattered Angels Mist and sprayed the vellum pink, yellow and orange. I love that the fuzzy white vellum can be customized to any color with the mist.

The ribbon was just the right length to tie it around the mouth of each jar.

I filled the jars with paper grass and Cadbury Mini Eggs. (My favorite Easter candy.)

The simple look of the open jars created the casual Springtime look I was hoping for.

Now I just have to hope that I don't eat all of the candy in the jars before Easter!
