Easter Shelves including DIY White Carrots & Vintage Cotton Reel Bunny Ornaments

Happy Thursday Friends!

How has your week been? I've had a pretty quiet week. No thrifty finds unfortunately, but I did get a lot of my Easter decorating done.  

Today I'm sharing my shelves in the living room, all decorated for a Farmhouse style Easter. 

I'm also sharing a few DIY's I created to add to my shelves including some cute white carrots and some vintage cotton reel bunny ornaments. 

Let's start on the top shelf. 

The cute little plants are a recent purchase from Kmart, on sale for only $3 each!

I'll go into how I made the carrots further down.

The white metal bunny hanging decoration is a recent purchase from Bed Bath n Table. They have the cutest Easter stuff there!

I've had this cute wire bunny for years. Another purchase from BBnT!

And this little silver bunny is also a recent purchase from you know where! 

And on the bottom shelf I opted to keep my vintage cameras and potted greenery.

I found this little vintage rabbit graphic on the net and decided to print it out. 

I love it sitting in my metal vintage flower frog.

And it wouldn't be Easter without a little bird's nest. 

Vintage Cotton Reel Bunny Ornaments

I actually found this idea on Pinterest, but for the life of me I can't find the pin again. 

The images are from The Graphics Fairy website. I printed them on cardboard, cut them out, leaving a piece to fold up on the bottom. 

I then glued the folded piece onto the top of the cotton reel so the bunny stood up. 

I hot glued a few sprigs of greenery behind the bunny.

And lastly I glued some old sheet music to the body of my cotton reel. 

Pretty cute, hey?

And the cute wooden bunny sign is a recent purchase from Big W. 

DIY White Carrots

I recently shared how I wrapped some carrots in macrame cord to make the white. These ones I did a bit differently.

I again used the orange carrots from Big W.  I grabbed some flat white paint and painted straight over the orange string on the carrots. I needed 2 thick coats to cover all the orange.

After they dried I twisted out the green felt stems.

I had some decorative straw that I folded into a bunch.

The I twisted them back into the top of the carrot. I'll probably go back and hot glue the stems in properly later.

But in the meantime, I think they turned out pretty good!  

In fact, I'm pretty happy with how my shelves turned out all round!

I'll be sharing a few other areas in our home soon!
