Easter Word Blocks - NEW RELEASE

I am so excited that Easter is around the corner.  When growing up that meant that warm weather was around the corner.  However, I live in Vegas and we have already experienced some 80 degree weather days so I am not looking for better weather.  I am already enjoying it.  But because I live in a desert landscape, I miss seeing the new flowers blossom and.  So I needed to add a pop of color somehow to my home decor.  I loved my St Patty's Day blocks so much, I created some Easter ones.  The pop of color was just what my house needed. 
While the kids played outside for the afternoon, I enjoyed some "me time" creating my Easter Word blocks.   Honestly one of my favorite things about Easter is Starburst Jellybeans so knew I had to have a jellybean block to honor my favorite treat.  The Jellybean block is my favorite one.

Holiday Flare

Some of you may have seen my tablescape over at my sister's blog - My Computer is My Canvas.  She was the one who inspired me to decorate for the holidays.  I am not the type to decorate the whole house for the holidays.  I just want a splash of holiday flare so I stick to decorating my dinning room table with a fun tablescape.  Throwing together some holiday flare is easy.  Here's what I like to do . . .

I love to decorate with food.  When I was looking for some St Patrick's Day decorations, there was not much to be found so I headed for the produce section of the grocery store where the limes caught my eye.  Since I was going for a green motif, limes were perfect.  Then I headed to the candy section and the Skittles wrapper caught my eye because of the rainbow.  These two items are not what you would normally think of when decorating for St Patty's Day, but because I was thinking outside the box I found some awesome additions to my tablescape. 

These little pots of gold are my favorite part of the tablescape.  They are actually cauldrons that I purchased during the Halloween season last year just for this purpose.  All I had to do was add some Rolos and some cute ribbon and the cauldrons were transformed.  I am always on the look out for some simple decorations that will make a fun addition to my tablescape all year round. 

I hope these tips will help you create a fun tablescape for your holiday flare.

St Patty's Day Word Blocks

Pin It

One of my favorite holiday decorations is a set of Halloween stackable word blocks.  I picked them up a few years ago and can't wait to get them out every Halloween.  I have always wanted a set for every holiday, but was never able to find anything similar.  So, while I was "pinning" one night, the thought popped into my mind to make my own.  I wished I would have thought of this years ago.  

This project was quick, easy and fun.  In fact it was so easy that I was able to complete my blocks while my 7 week old baby took a nap snugged up in his BABYBJORN sling.  All you need is some wooden blocks (bought and cut at the local Home Depot), paint, sand paper, Mod Podge and the DIY Printable available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.
