Peep Calm and Carry On!

Joyous Easter to each of you!  I am thrilled to show you my mantle decoration made completely of items I found at Vintage Street Market.  It is silly to be happy you have a mantle, but the house I grew up in had one and was a home to an anniversary clock from my parents 25th anniversary and photographs.

Our mantle has a clock and various symbols of our faith.  It is fun during Holy Week to add some holiday fun to the mix. The supply list for this decoration is a bit long, but putting it together is a breeze.

Supply list:
  • 4 1/4 inch by 12 inch card stock (scored at 1/2 inch, 3 inches and 6 inches)
  • Reminisce Subway Art Sticker (Peep Calm and Carry On)
  • Vintage chick with hat
  • Vintage Ice Cream Cup
  • Vintage paper garland
  • Stapler
  • ATG adhesive
  • Dimensional adhesive
  • Blue Twirly Twine
  • Vintage yellow button
  • Paper flower
  • Vintage green tinsel
  • Vintage chick (aqua)
  • Candy eggs 
Everything, except the candy came from VSM!

  1. Apply subway art sticker to the 6 inch panel of the card stock.
  2. Apply adhesive with the ATG to the 1/2 inch panel of card stock
  3. Adhere to form an easel
  4. Add chick with hat using dimensional tape
  5. Add paper garland to the ice cream cup with staples, fluff
  6. Tie Twirly Twine bow in button and adhere with liquid adhesive to flower
  7. When dry adhere to ice cream cup
  8. Fill cup with vintage tinsel as "grass"
  9. Place chick in cup and add candy eggs.
  10. Display on your holiday table or like me on the mantle!

Thanks for stopping by and do have a blessed Easter!  He is Risen!
