Easter Photo Carousel - Molossi

Easter Photo Carousel by Dana Tatar for Molossi

Hi! I'm sharing an Easter themed home decor piece that I created for Molossi today. I started with a Dusty Attic Photo Carousel and embellished it with colorful patterned paper, Manor House Creations Flowers, Molossi Sticky Bling and some Easter decorations.

Dusty Attic Photo Carousel

This is what the Dusty Attic Photo Carousel looks like assembled and unaltered. The entire piece spins 360 degrees. The two lattice pieces are stationary. The four solid panels (two are shown above) spin 360 degress.

I colored the top and bottom pieces with Vintage Photo Distress Stain. When I think about Easter, the first things that come to mind are white bonnets and baskets, so I colored the two lattice pieces with a White Acrylic Paint Dabber. I set these pieces aside to dry overnight. Note: I left the 4 spinning panels natural because they will be covered with patterned paper.

I cut patterned paper to fit the rotating panels. I embellished 4 panels with photos of my daughters and 4 panels with vintage Easter themed clip art. I added Manor House Creations Flowers and some Easter themed embellishments from my personal stash. I finished each patterned panel with stitching and and a Viva Decor Creme Pearl Pen.

Here's a closer look at the floral clusters. The Manor House Creations Flowers in pink and purple are unaltered. The smaller yellow, pink, blue and turquoise roses are the Manor House Creations Teeny Weenie flowers that I colored with Dylusions Ink Spray.

I had a lot of fun embellishing the top piece of this carousel! This carousel is very strong and I could have piled on a lot more weight without effecting the rotational capability of this piece. I laid down a nice blanket of artificial grass and topped that with eggs, flowers, bows and a resin bunny holding a basket of carrots.
