Too much to do, not enough time.  Try grabbing a few pieces of junk to add a little spring to your Easter decorations!
Here I started off with a simple floral made from a car spring (thanks honey--hehe) and a soda fountain glass.
Its slightly industrial, with a modern flair.  I feel spring is in the air!
A smaller car spring holds a votive candle perfectly.
Or here I have a piece of vintage handrail.  Now what in the world can I do with something like this? 
All it needs is a few candles to become a unique candle holder.
And last but not least, a little ivy sprig is all these fab lab beakers need.  Simple as 1, 2, 3!

Here's a few simple projects just in time for Easter.  Not much project to them.  They're easy as one, two, three.  And if you're preparing Easter dinner, you probably haven't much extra time on your hands.  So go for simple . . . it's a good thing.
