PB Knock Off Tablescape

Remember this B-U-tiful tablescape???!!!! It's in the Pottery Barn Catlaog

I have been dreaming of making it happen.... :)
I was counting bunnies to sleep. 'Member these guys :)

Look at those precious toesies :)
Everywhere I went, I wanted to buy more bunnies....

But I told my self NO, I don't want to start collecting more STUFF!!
I really love decorating for Holidays 
But I do NOT like having STUFF everywhere!
(And our house is NOT small, or big)

Anywhoo, it is SPRING BREAK 'round these parts
(although I don't get to part take :( )
And I thought, MUST GET IT DONE!

I picked up some white eggs from HobLob....
77 cents for a dozen
To my surprise they had all white! WHEW!
(I had anticipated this part of the project being a little more work,
like painting the eggs white and how am I gonna keep them from toppling over to dry) SHEESH!

But NO, the Craft Heavens made ALL WHITE EGGS!

In true THROWER-ER TOGETHER-ER fashion..
instead of painting the letters on each egg,
I grabbed a sharpie and wrote them on! (not my eyebrows, the letters :)
[San Antonio, Tx joke :)]

ADM! (like OMG, Aye Dios Mio)  

I get disappointed in myself when I do this, cuz I'm like WHAT THE HEY??
shoulda did it right the first time :(

Grabbed the bunnies, fishing line to tie them on the branches
and hot glued the line on top of each egg!

URGH, lemme' tell you
AHHHHH! So I could not get a great picture. :(
( I even tried weighing them down with RAISINS)

What 'Ev......I LIKE IT!

Now I coulda' went the extra mile and and did this to the branches like CASA GENTIS
It would be so gorgeous...
Follow the tutorial E-Z P-Z!
(When we did our branches we hot glued hydrangea petals all over them)
So, now I have my PB tablescape at a TINY FRACTION OF THE COST!

Hoblob eggs= 77 cents                         PB eggs $19 for set
