This craft is inspired by our friend Shawnda Stone at From Dust to Beauty Designs. It’s a great way to craft with some of your “littles”, you know, those cute little things you collect because they are cute AND little! Watch the video below, or just follow along here on the blog.
Dollar Tree: moss, wood cutouts, little eggs, nest, chalkboard paint, cupcake / muffin tin (yes, this one is skeletons, but use what you’ve got, girl!)
Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint: White Swan, Apothecary
Walmart: Waverly Antique Wax

Let’s make it!
Here’s the skull cupcake pan! You won’t even know it’s skulls when we finish.
I painted both sides with two coats of White Swan.
If you saw the video, then you know all about this! There is a spray tan story to go along with this Costco bathing suit!
Shawnda used this technique to make her pan look like chippy enamelware. Just paint on some black lines and dry. You can use a heat tool or set aside to dry.
Next, just use hot glue to add moss.
I used my Waverly Antique wax to put a little detail on the carrots and fence. You can use any paint, just water it down a bit.
Finn came in to “help” me finish! I tried a few things but settled on this for a sign. I used a strip of wood, painted it with Apothecary, and just used a Sharpie to make little lines and dots.
And then added Scrabble letters! You can find them in my Amazon link above!
I used 14 beads for my hanger. I tied knots in the ends and used hot glue to adhere them to the back of my project. I secured the ends with little pieces of a craft stick, also hot glued on.
TIP: Always use an even number of beads so your project will hang properly.
A plaid bow and some raffia, and we have a cute Easter and spring decor piece!
Meanwhile, Finn sang a “brush your teeth” song while coloring brown on some beads, then going over them with white! He sure is creative!
Thanks to our friend Shawnda for the inspiration! I hope you all enjoyed this craft. Let me know in the comments what you might use to create a bit of spring decor!
I sure do appreciate your stopping by my blog!
