This plant holder truly speaks to a cottage style that I think is fitting for the holiday. I did not sand or distress the finish. I really was after crisp and clean for a welcome change of pace.
Here she is hanging out in the green house. This is adorable hanging from an arbor as it is here, but it would work just as nicely hanging on your porch, from a tree, or over a table inside.
Im a sucker for succulents. I thought hens and chicks were appropriate for the occasion.
Hey egghead...watcha doing? Notice what I forgot to remove in this image? I left the string from the price tag behind. I guess this eggheads name in Minnie Pearl.
The white on white creates a nice and simple look allowing the plants to take center stage!
The ribbons run through the holes in the center and are knotted at the bottom.
The spring holds the ribbons together and adds an unexpected element.
The six ribbons running through the holes allowed me to create a loose and unfussy bow.
Hello ...Im a little bugeyed! Its spring in Minnesota so every creation needs an insect of some kind. I did not make this little guy. He looks like a creation of member Black Crow Forge.
A perfect way to greet your Easter guests!
A birdseye view....
Zoomed in!

JunkArchitect writes: Good thing you put this beautiful post together because I thought Easter was in TWO weeks!
I like the color choice too; it's not the typical pink, purple and yellow, not that there's anything wrong with pink, purple and yellow.
Thanks for the inspiration and the reminder!
