Made That? Part 2

 Looks like the blogger problem has been corrected. I just got in and wanted to get this posted as I had planned to do this morning. This is more of a recycle than a made that but...really, I am loving it.
I received this awesome wood piece from  my swap partner Avery at Junk Market. It is from a school science lab.

I had a bag full of craft store eggs from previous years of Spring decorating.

Add a dollar's worth of Dollar Tree "moss rocks".

An "oops" apperitif glass, missing it's base, and a tea light.

Not there yet...


Complete! How's that for a Spring centerpiece? Minimal and just enough to get the message across.
I am going very low key this Easter. My bunnies and pastels are staying in the bins. I will share the rest of my very simple Easter decorating later in the week. I will visit you all to see the lovely Spring touches I just cannot get to this year.

Pin It!

My, but the wood did clean up nicely! I love the simple elegance of what you have created and hope you enjoy the versatility of the old test tube holder each and every change of the seasons!
Happy Spring!
