Easter Shelf and Interchangeable Burlap Banner

Easter is right around the corner!
I figured it was time to take down the St. Patrick's Day decor and decorate the shelf for Easter.


Look at all familiar? I just swapped out a few St. Patrick's Day items and converted it over for Easter. Here's the before:

As you can see, the wreath got to stay, but rather than the printable, yarn balls, apples and split peas, I decided to go sweet and simple and add a few Beatrix Potter-ish figurines and two pots of wheat grass I started growing 2 weeks ago.

Cute and sweet and simple. I like the uncluttered look of it. 
Want to grow some wheat grass? Here is our tutorial from a few years ago. It is so simple to do, and I love the look that some wheatgrass gives my house in the spring time--it just screams "hey, it's spring and things are starting to grow!"

And now, the real genius of the shelf is the burlap banner that you can easily change for the holidays.

The paper Easter eggs are stuck onto the burlap with double-sided tape,  just like the "lucky" St. Patrick's Day sign.

When it was time to change the banner into one more suitable for Easter, I simply pulled the letters off of the burlap, tossed them, and then cut out some Easter eggs, applied double-sided tape to them and voila! now the banner is ready for Easter. Super easy. 

Hope you are gearing up for a great pre-Easter week. :)
