Spring is in the air

I love to decorate but I don't love spending much money on decorations.  Between pinterest and the dollar tree I have been having a great time making my house springy.

The egg trees and eggs are from the dollar tree and the candles I've had .  Total cost of centerpiece was $7.

These are old mason jars that I spray painted the lids white and the candle sticks are also from the good ol dollar tree.  I spray painted them white as well and filled with candy.  A few days later the jars were empty....

So I re-filled with the egg bubble gum that was too hard to chew and some paper grass.  Total cost was $5.

How to Nest for Less


  1. Love it! All of the colors make me so happy :) Easter is just like an explosion of happiness. Yay!! xoxo Oh and Harry called, this weekend isn't going to work for the party...gosh it's such a crazy time of year for us!

    And also, I'm a loser.

  6. Seriously.... pinterest is the BEST for cheap/diy decor! LOVE yours! I can't decorate with candy, it would be eaten within the day :)
