Bunny Tail Pom Pom Garland

You've seen these cute pom pom garlands around.
I've been wanting to try my hand at making one for awhile now.
My Peter Cottontail sign was just right inspiration
for a "bunny tail" garland.

POP into General Conference printable reminder

Our church hosts a General Conference twice a year,
where you can hear inspiring messages giving hope, direction and strength.
I love giving out a fun reminder to my seminary class the Friday before the conference.

How to Paint a Lettered Sign for Easter

Remember that song when you were a kid,
"here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail.."
Brings back fun memories and was the inspiration for this sign.

Supplies you'll need:
pine board 1x 9 x16"
2 colors craft acrylic paint
white spray paint
vinyl letters or sticker letters
(for frame)
1/4" x 1 1/2" x 4'
nails, hammer, strong adhesive glue
wood stain

Start out by designing your wording on a vinyl cutting machine.
You can also use sticker letters, will take a little longer but is an option.
Paint the top of your board with the color you want your letters to be.
I wanted mine gray, so I'm using Dark Grey by Craft Smart acrylic craft paint.
With the weeded vinyl still attached to contact paper and backing,
lay that on the board and measure where the word Easter will fall.
(If using sticker letters, start to put down the words, stopping at Easter.)
Paint that section of the board with a second color.
I'm using Sea Breeze by Americana.
Then lay down your vinyl (or finish placing sticker letters)
Always make sure your paint is completely dry before adding the lettering.
I'm using pink vinyl so you can see it and
it is covering the color that I want those words to appear in.

Spray paint your board white.
Take your time and spray in layers.
The white will cover everything.

Green Eggs & Ham

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
We have a tradition on this day to eat green eggs and ham.

I'm not sure how it started
but my kids loved it.
They were amazed that I knew how to make it ;)
Just like "Sam I am".
All it takes is a drop of green food coloring when you're scrambling them.
Just a little fun to start off your day with some green!
Don't forget to wear something emerald today too!

Mini Gift Bouquets

What could be better than receiving a mini bouquet of flowers?
Great to give for someone's birthday, to say thank you or just for fun.

I found these fun pink tinted 1/2 pint mason jars
which are the perfect container for a small bouquet.
Also, picked up this mini banner kit. You can use the pennants as gift tags.
