This Pretty Pastel Easter Mantel Vignette is so cute! Take a little tour on all of the beautiful Easter crafts included in this gorgeous vignette!
Today I’m sharing with you guys my Pastel Easter Mantel Vignette. Don’t worry guys, I haven’t already started decorating for Easter… I’m not that crazy over Easter! This was last year’s Easter Mantel display and I love it so much I thought I would get in early and share it. I did all of these crafts before relaunching the blog so unfortunately I don’t have photos of all the projects I did to bring this little vignette to life. I’ve had these photos stored away since last year so finally the time has come to share them with you!
I chose pastel pink and blue as my main colours. I don’t have pastels all over my house and certainly not much pink or baby blue getting around but I wanted something fun and different for Easter. My kids love colour as they’re still so little so for them it was very fun looking at this colourful display on our fireplace mantel.
The pink bunny is a very easy painting I did. I sketched out the outline of a bunny using an image I spotted on the internet. I had a small, flat canvas sitting around which is what I used. I hand drew the bunny on to the canvas. It’s similar to the one I saw online but I changed it a little to make it the way I wanted. I painted the silhouette with white acrylic paint and the outside I painted with a pretty baby pink acrylic paint. I made sure to have rough brush strokes as I didn’t want it looking too “perfectly painted”.
I created little terrarium inspired displays for my tiny bunnies using some moss flakes, cute white and yellow ribbon and hanging glass globes that I had from my wedding. I placed the moss inside the glass globes, tied the ribbon into a bow through the little loop at the top of the globe and then sat the bunnies inside their new little glass homes.
The blue bunny was another silhouette painting I did. Exactly the same as the pink one, on a flat, round canvas. I printed a silhouette I found through a google search I did then after painting my canvas white and letting it dry I traced the outline of the bunny silhouette I had printed in the middle of the canvas. I painted the outside of the canvas baby blue and kept the bunny white. One all dry I decided to give it a white border all around the canvas making it rough and using a very dry brush with a tiny bit of white paint to create more strokes all around the blue of the canvas and also around the white border I had created. I wanted a distressed look for this painting.
I made a watercolour egg garland out of watercolour paper and yellow ribbon. I found an image of an egg that I printed off then cut it out and traced it on to watercolour paper. I then took to my watercolours and painted different patterns on each de keeping them all within the same colour palette I had chosen. I allowed it to fully dry then I cut out the eggs and hot glued them to the ribbon.
As you can see Easter time gets me bunny obsessed! I LOVE bunnies for Easter displays. Just so, so cute. I found these two bunnies at different homeware stores and I just had to have them. I’ll be bringing them out again this year for Easter and hope the boys don’t get to them. They’re older now and much more curious and destructive.
I love displaying fresh plants around my home. I feel it gives your home life and makes it feel more fresh and inviting. I painted a little terra cotta pot in the matching blue to the round bunny canvas and once it was dry I placed this cute little plant I got from my local florist into the painted terra cotta pot.
I had this and the yellow bunny on my Pastel Easter Mantel Vignette also but for some reason took it away and then forgot to put it back when taking photos of the whole vignette. Though I would share this gorgeous little pot with you guys. I got it from my local florist who I am obsessed with because they have so much gorgeousness happening in their shop! The plants in this port where actually daffodils which was super pretty when they bloomed.
I finished off my Pastel Easter Mantel Vignette with a watercolour painting of a large easter egg! I just love my watercolour easter egg. It’s made from all different patterns and colours. I kept it light, pastel and filled with random lines and shapes.
Love it? Pin it so you don’t forget it!
