This year Easter is going to be exceptionally low-key in my family. One person will be out of town at the NCAA basketball tournament, a few people just moved into a new house and are still getting settled, and yet a few others have to work. Some holidays are just like that, and this is one of them. I’ll still be dyeing eggs Saturday as usual and maybe even making a batch of hot cross buns for the first time ever! Love these twenty ideas for fun DIYs and egg decorating below.

This fall one of my favorite designers, Rebecca Atwood, released her first wallpaper collection. It features three designs – Marble, Dashes, and Petals – in several color options and I’m smitten with every single one. Much of Rebecca’s inspiration came from her childhood growing up on Cape Cod, crisp fall days with swirling ocean waves and petals falling in the garden that mark the end of summer.
I was especially taken with the Marble Clay Blue pattern and decided to use it in a simple fireplace update. This design started when Rebecca experimented with marbling papers using India ink in the suminagashi technique. The irregular marbled designs reference the coastal elements – small rocks, swirling ocean pools, and the landscape itself. I just love everything about it!
My fireplace needs a new liner to make it usable once again, so I fill it with prayer candles. When lit the result it warm and bright, which makes a decent stand-in on cozy nights. To give the box an update Rebecca sent me a length of her new wallpaper in my favorite pattern. I measured the back of the box up to where it narrows into the chimney and down along the bottom and trimmed a piece of paper before cutting it to the proper width. It was a bit of trial and error in finding something that would attach to the super old painted over masonry, but after a few tries double-stick strips from 3M did the trick nicely. I attached three on the top edge and three on the bottom edge and applied. Voila! Yet another super versatile way to use wallpaper. I’m quite happy with the results and am even more convinced that I need to paint those tiles black asap.Posted In accents, house and home, living, make it
