I have found decorating for Easter to be a bit of a challenge. There are lots and lots of Easter bunnies out there, sure. I just wanted my decor to focus more on our Savior and what Easter really means. I find these type of decorations hard to come by. If I do find them, they seem kind of "tacky". (I know, I'm probably not shopping in the right store!) I wanted to show you what I came up with this Easter for the mantle above the fireplace.
I love my rusty cross candle holder someone from our church gave me. I found the nest of eggs on clearance last year. (One of the eggs is covered in moss...I like!)
The cross is a symbol of what Christ did for all of us...and the eggs the symbol of new life He gives!
I took down my fireplace grate and put up my spring/summer fireplace cover made by my dad. He found some old closet doors at the dump and made this! I added the green paint, which I got for free from ordering a paint sample. Yeah!
The verse on the plate is one of my son's Bible Drill verses, so it serves double-duty! I love changing out verses/messages on this plate!
Have a Blessed Good Friday and a Happy Easter!!
