Easy Easter Bunting

I've had an admittedly lazy last 2 weeks here in the Keweenaw. I'm still dealing with this bout of pleurisy, although the pain isn't as severe as it was. The most exercise I've had is doing laundry and putting dishes in the dishwasher, and there have been more than a few days when I didn't even get out of my robe until mid-afternoon! I felt like I turned a corner on Tuesday, however, so I'm hopeful for lots more energy by next week.

Our Keweenaw snowfall total has hit the 260" mark, and we still have lots on the ground, but we're having more and more days when we can actually view the world in living color again. Here's my view looking up from the chair in the corner of the great room today.

The forecast is calling for 2-4" of snow tomorrow, but that blue sky sure puts us in the mood for spring! It won't be long now. March is half over already and Easter will be here before we know it, so I thought I would post my Easter bunting project.

Most of my 2017 Easter and spring decor coordinates with this yarn I purchased at Walmart ($2.97) in a color called Key Largo Tweed.

I used this yarn for several projects including my Vase Makeover and my Pillar Candle Holder Makeover. You can click on the titles to see those projects. 

This Easy Easter Bunting is small - just large enough to drape in front of a small display area (which I will fully reveal in an upcoming post). An Internet search will lead you to an unlimited number of free downloadable background papers and textures. I used one I found from melstampz for my bunting - added the triangles and letters in Microsoft Publisher - and printed it on white cardstock.

The letters spell out the true message of Easter - HE IS RISEN!

I cut out the triangles and punched 2 holes in each one. After that, I just had to string them onto the yarn and cut the yarn to the length I needed.

Again, I'll reveal more about the exact location of this Easy Easter Bunting in an upcoming post.

Can't show you everything at once!

All is well in the Keweenaw.
