Easter Egg Hunt Vignette

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity-hoppity,
Easter's on its way!

I thought it would be fun this year to put together a Peter Cottontail/Easter egg hunt themed vignette, while I still have children who are fascinated with the Easter Bunny!  There are hidden eggs in the vignette that can be moved around and hunted for....



...as well as Peter Cottontail himself, peeking out from the 'bushes' (after secretly hiding all of the eggs of course).


The Easter egg hunt stakes and bunny pick are from the dollar store as well as the butterfly (it was in with the flowers that I bought for the wreath).  I added three more bunches of flowers to the two that I already had in the wreath from my thrifty spring decor.  I poked the flowers in without any glue, so they can be changed easily.  I like to think of the wreath as a flowery meadow, perfect for hiding eggs in!


The candle was on clearance for .88, the ribbon was from the dollar store, and I already had the rick-rack.  I just taped it all to the candle in the back.


The plate and stand also came from the dollar store.  I made up the vinyl quote using my Silhouette program.  The fonts used are 'smiley monster' and 'oh photo shoot'.


The bunting is pieced from 30's reproduction fabrics and then zig-zagged onto warm and natural quilt batting.  What Easter egg hunt is complete without a banner?  You can read more about it here.


The basket is a .50 thrift find.  It was originally black, so I spray painted it Krylon's Bahama Sea.  The reindeer moss is from the dollar store, and the eggs were 40% off at JoAnn's, making them around $4. 


When you put together a wall grouping for children, it's a good idea to kneel down and check out their view of it.  This is what my youngest child sees when he hunts for the eggs (it's great counting practice too).
