Spring Table Centerpiece

Good morning everyone.  Hope Spring has finding you as it has us.  Last week was Spring break and we spent it in the mountains and enjoyed every minute of it.  Now I am in full blown Spring fever mode.  So today I thought I would show you our Spring table centerpiece.

This is the toolbox that I painted last Spring.  You can read all about it's transformation here.  But for this year I wanted to change it up a bit.

Vintage, Paint and more... vintage toolbox, French burlap ribbon, twine

I wrapped it with some 3 inch burlap ribbon that has a vintage French motif printed on it.  Then I wrapped some twine around it and added a twine "flower" I made.  This was made simply by wrapping the twine around three of my fingers, tying it in the center and then gluing it in place.

I filled it with some Styrofoam blocks to take up some of the space and then covered them with some dried moss.  Then I placed some "faux" daffodils and some peat pots I painted.  I added a "faux" nest made of some more dried moss, twine and twigs from the yard and a couple of blue wooden eggs.  The last thing to go in is the brown bird with blue wings that match the eggs.  This I bought at Michael's this Spring to add to my ever growing collection.

And there you have it.  A quick simple piece  to bring a bit of Spring to your home. And  the best part is I had all the items except the bird already. I love shopping my craft stash for new looks for each season.  How about you?
