Bunny Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bunny Blog Hop!  

Today I am joining forces with three other fabulous blogs to host one huge party for you to share all of your Spring and Easter projects, crafts, decor and recipes.  


Before we get to today's party, I wanted to share with you a simple spring craft I created.


I started with pretty paper napkins I bought at Home Goods.
I opened four paper napkins and laid them one on top of the other.

I then folded the napkins back and forth accordion style.  
Using a scissor, I cut a half circle at both ends of the folded papers.
I twisted a green pipe cleaner in the center of my folded papers.
I then used a wood skewer and attached it under the twisted pipe cleaner and wrapped the remainder of the pipe cleaner around the skewer.  It gave the "stem" more stability to hold the weight of the flowers.
Then layer by layer I carefully pulled out the paper napkin.
After fully fluffing my flowers, I arranged them in a crystal vase.
Simple, fun flowers.
Perfect for my Easter centerpiece.

Now it's your turn to share your favorite spring and Easter projects, crafts, decor or recipes.  
To make today even more special, Ann from On Sutton Place, 
one of the co-hosts of today's party, is generously offering a giveaway.
Ann is offering this gorgeous Garden pillow cover to one lucky winner.  
This pillow cover would be the perfect addition to any decor.

Want a chance to win this awesome pillow cover?  
Here's all you have to do:

1.  Just link up any Spring/Easter project, craft, decor or recipe to today's party.  Each post you link up will count as one entry (no more than four links please).  
    

2.  For a second chance to win, stop by Ann's Etsy Shop and come back and leave a comment on what else you love in her shop.  

It's that easy. So what is a Bunny Blog Hop you ask... if you link up on my blog, your link will also appear over at At The Picket Fence, French Country Cottage and On Sutton Place.   
The party will remain open through Easter Sunday, April 8th, at 11:59pm.

4 Blogs + 1 Huge Party
= Tons of Fun and  Inspiration

What are we waiting for...
Let's get this party started!!!

The giveaway will close on Sunday April 8th at 11:59pm EST.  You must leave a separate comment for each entry in order to maximize your chances to win. Must be 18 years or older.  Open only to residents in the 48 lower states.  If your email address is not linked to your Google account, please make sure to include your email in your comment so you can be contacted in the case you win.  If I have no way of contacting you I must pick another winner.  Winners will be chosen using Random.org.

Such pretty flowers, Judy. I love that they seem easy to make. I would have never thought to use napkins though! Great idea!

Thanks for hosting ladies! I would love to win Ann's lovely pillow. Would be a great addition to my pillow love. Your paper flowers are so cute Judy!

Thanks for the great idea to use napkins to make the paper flowers and for hosting the Bunny Hop party. I went to Ann's etsy shop and she has lovely things over there. I think my favorite is the linen button up pillow cover. It reminds me of Easter outfits that I would put on my little boys that had the button on shorts.

Your flowers are such a cute idea for spring. Thanks for hosting the party. Ann has so many beautiful items to choose from at her etsy shop. It's hard to pick one item, but I'd pick the Linen Pillow cover - P. Kaufmann flax colored linen/cotton.
