Turn your white tree into an adorable Easter bunny.

Hard to believe that with just a handful of items from the craft department, you can transform your Winter White Potted Pine Tree into an adorable, fluffy Easter bunny. Easter is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for and this bunny tree might be one of my proudest decorating moments. Let me show you how easy it is to make your own.

Find a decorated tree sitting at the end of the rainbow.

My kitsch-loving heart could not stand the thought of my Revolving Colorwheel living in the attic through a holiday like St. Patrick’s Day that embraces rainbows. Sure, a color wheel looks amazing during the Christmas holidays pointed at a metallic tree (did you see my Toasted Champagne Tree decorated for New Year’s Eve?) but did you know it also works on white trees? Not only does it work, it looks awesome.

Talk about a whirlwind romance! Last week, we got to see five amazing Valentine’s wreaths, and we fell in love with each and every one of them. We wish to thank our brand ambassador, Jennifer Perkins, and the amazingly talented crafters and artists who made our Valentine’s Day Wreath Blog Hop and Giveaway series such an inspiring and memorable event.


The Pretty in Pink Wreath 5 Different Ways.

Each participant received a Treetopia Pretty in Pink Wreath to dress up any way they wanted. In keeping with the classic Valentine’s Day spirit, our bloggers stuck to a sweet decorating theme – anything and everything red and pink, done with their unique, individual twists! We were thrilled to see how the decorated wreaths reflected each blogger’s signature style and personality. Here’s a quick look at all their wonderful designs.

Our Bloggers and Their Decorated Wreaths

Our very own Jennifer Perkins kicked things off with a whimsical wreath anchored by a heart-shaped chocolate box and an adorable sand-flocked ceramic deer. You can see more of her kitsch-inspired wreath here.

Everyday is a holiday with this wreath.

Everyday is a holiday with this pink wreath!

Jenny Heid and Aaron Nieradka of Everyday is a Holiday have a very distinct look with most everything they create. You can almost spot their designs at 50 paces with the telltale signs of baby pink, aqua blue, handpainted baked goods and a vintage coating on top of it all.  Their mixed media and art journaling work is some of my favorites and their blog, Instagram feed and book: Mixed Media Masterpieces With Jenny and Aaron are endlessly inspiring. This is why I thought they would be perfect for this blog hop. If anyone was going to do a Pretty in Pink wreath right, it was them. Pop over to their blog for the full wreath reveal and a chance to win your very own wreath. Perhaps you will decorate it with one of Jenny and Aaron’s delicious looking baked goods.

I have been dying to share the Valentine’s Day wreath I made. Recently, a few crafty girlfriends and I had a wreath making party that was TONS of fun. Everyone had a unique spin on the holiday and the only theme throughout were the colors red and pink. I had so much fun having this party with my friends in Austin, I wanted to do it again with my friends online!

So with all that said, please pop over to my blog to check out my new favorite wreath. Let’s just say that if it was pink, white or red, it made it on to the wreath. As they say, everything but the kitchen sink. No sinks, but ladies’ razors and false teeth make an appearance.
