My Spring "Fantel"

I gave a sneak peak yesterday with my Spring Wooden Eggs that I made for my "Fantel". I can honestly say everything else I had or made with material that I had on hand. After ALOT of tweaking I think I know am in love with it.

I wanted to keep it more "Spring" than Easter so it will last longer. I might add a Easter Banner.

Now I do need to give credit to some wonderful other bloggers for some of the inspiration and ideas that I used to pull this together.

The printable is from A Simple Klassic Home. She designed this printable and is offering it for free on her blog. I added some background to it using the graphics that Sprik Space is offering.
I am loving the Chevron Stripes that are showing up everywhere.
(the yellow doesn't show up well in the picture but it looks great in person plus there are a TON of colors to choose from)
I love the simple saying.

Now these little blue birds are one of the simplest thing I have every made. There feet are just bent paperclips!!!!!! I know my flock is going to grow ALOT. I saw the idea over on Charcoal and Crayons. The possibilities are endless here.
I used a template I found {here} for my birdies.
There are 3 different sizes so you could make a family of birdies.

(Like my collage of pics?...been learning how to use Picnik, its so easy to understand and use)

Linking up to the following parties....
