Considering January had at least 75 days this year and February is DRAGGING (just me?..) , .. I’m SO ready to start this Spring project and get some Spring vibes into our home! The Valentine’s tree is in the loft and my Easter decorations are making their way down into our home. All I need now in my life is some sunshine and lighter evenings! I know, I shouldn’t wish my life away, but I’m SO over winter that all I seem to be doing is day dreaming about Spring and Summer!
Anyway, as projects go I love working with these pizza pans. Their are so affordable and versatile (did you see what we did with one of these for autumn?).
For this simple Spring/Easter project, grab some left over paper, some Easter decorations and let your imagination do the rest. Want to be inspired? Hopefully this blog post will give you some ideas so you can have a go at making your own!
What I used for my Pizza Pan Spring Project
A 50p aluminum pizza pan (£1 for two in our local shop)
Some scrap book paper from a Design pad called “Happy” – check out the selection of design pads at The Range here
White acrylic paint
This cute little fabric bunny
Some glitter carrots
Some wooden letters
A few left over daisies
A pearl bead garland (wedding section in The Range)
I put this craft project together on a Facebook Live, so don’t have many progress photos. You can catch the replay of the project here if you want to craft along!
Because of the outside rim is going to be showing, I took some white acrylic paint and gave the outer rim two coats to cover.
Leave to dry and this will form the base of your creation!
Next, cut a piece of colorful cardstock to the right size. I only wanted to cover the inside of the pizza pan so measured it out and cut it into the right shape.
I used Mod Podge to stick down the paper to the inside of the pizza pan. Press down and smooth out any bubbles. Once the paper was down I took some craft rope and hot glued this over the edges of the paper to hide any imperfections.
I love this part!
Now the fun part of your Spring project! – decorating it with bunnies, carrots, daisies and anything else you can get your hands to finish this Spring project. There is no right or wrong with this process – just do what YOU think looks nice!
I took this bunny from Hobbycraft as my starting point. I wanted to create a little carrot patch for him to sit in so glued some moss straight onto the paper. Hot glue the bunny on top and decorate with some carrots. Now, I know it’s a carrot patch, but I rebelled and added some daisies too.
That was the bottom half of the project sorted.
If you want you can fill up any space that’s left over with some letters. I still had these wooden letters in my craft stash and decided to keep them a natural colour to match the rope.
Now to fill up the top part, I added a messy bow with some scrap pieces of ribbon that I had left over from last year (can you believe I’ve not put an order in for my Spring ribbons for this year? Shocking!!)
Technically the daisies don’t belong in the carrot patch, but it’s my project so I can make up the rules 😉
I forgot to mention, I hot glued a pearl string around the outside too. I was going to use another rope, but liked the variety of the pearl instead.
I’ve still got to find a place for it – it’s going in our kitchen so will add a hanger at the back, but here’s the finished article. Who knew a 50 p pizza pan could look SOOOOO good?!
