Spring door {with cardboard bunnies}

Yes, cardboard, that is exactly what I used to make this little spring sign for our front door! I have been working on and off on this project for like 3 weeks now.  Even though, it was super easy to make, I just did parts of it here and there.  It was made from stuff I had laying around the house and I think most crafters have these things laying around too. 

Let me show you how easy and cheap this was to do!
Supplies:
Cardboard box
Felt
Frame
Burlap
Wooden Letters
Twine
Hot and Tacky Glue


Last week I shared how I made the bow, so easy! 


The frame I used had been sitting in my craft closet forever and was hot pink, it was a little too bright, so I painted it light blue.  Well, I painted it outside and totally forgot to bring it in, and of course it rained that night!  I brought it in the next day and looked it over.. and it actually looked kind of cool! A for real weathered look ;)  I loved how the pink showed through too! It's funny how accidents can turn out to be better than you intended.


I just love how it came out!! I originally wanted it to say welcome, but I really didn't want to buy more letters, so I just used some letters I had.  
I love how the burlap is see through, so it makes it a little lighter and airier, it reminds me of a screen door. And how the bunnies have that texture to them. LOVE!
This was so simple!! And the possibilities are endless with the cardboard, you could make a chick or a letter, stars for the 4th, or anything you can think of.  I will definitely be using this again in future projects. 


I'm so happy Spring is here, it means, garage sales, spray paint, picnics (alright, I really don't go on that many picnics but I vow to this year, ok?) ;) 

Happy Wednesday!!

    I am also SUPER excited about garage sales, spray painting OUTSIDE instead of in my basement and picnics! Yay sunshine!

  2. Kimberly this is absolutely ADORABLE! Love that you used things hanging around the house. What color blue did you paint the frame? That is the blue I am trying to use in my living room makeover.
