These six Watercolor Easter Printables are perfect for any spring decor. They're some of the best loved Easter scriptures and hymns put into printable form.
In Texas, spring hits ridiculously early...so I'm trying to just embrace it and enjoy it (as compared to previous years of grumbling because it's 90 degrees in March). I'm going ahead and putting out all of the Easter decor. These new watercolor Easter printables are perfect for my living room...I'm thinking of rotating them out all season long. I bundled them all together for $5 in my shop.

DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow

This DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow (with a sweet little bunny) is a fun little Easter craft. If you've never done appliqué, this is the perfect project to get your feet wet. It utilizes a simple basic stitch on the sewing machine (you can sew by hand, if you prefer). I have the free printable appliqué template below, as well. And who can resist the addition of a yarn pom pom bunny tail?

DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow: Sweet little bunny pillow made from a canvas drop cloth and men's shirt. Free printable bunny template available, too.
Are y'all tired of my pillow tutorials yet? Honestly, I'm such a throw pillow hoarder that I may never tire of creating them (but please don't leave en masse). This is another super budget-friendly project...I used an old men's plaid shirt (the shirt was old, not the man who wore it...ahem), and of course, my go-to drop cloth for fabric. Check out the tutorial for this DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow below (it's on another easy envelope pillow cover!).

It's also an extra cozy party with all of these "comfy" features. This week's selections were chosen by Meegan from What Meegan Makes. Cuddle up and be inspired, too! Check out all of the fun below.

How to Make Yarn Pom Poms

I'm sharing how to make yarn pom poms with just a fork and a clothespin.
This is a fun project that kids can help with, too...
and pom poms are crazy addictive to make!

How to make yarn pom poms using a fork and clothespin. This easy method doesn't require any special tools (or cutting off the circulation in your hand making poms the old fashioned way!).
Ahhhh, pom poms. These are one of the yarn crafts of my youth that still make me smile. I shared on my Instagram this past weekend that we worked on both finger knitting (remember finger knitting?) and yarn pom poms all weekend. My youngest had so much fun with all of it. 
While, the traditional method of pom pom making involves using 3-4 fingers wrapped up in yarn...it also tends to cut off my circulation. While purple finger tips are fun and all, I recently discovered this fork method and then put my own spin on it by adding in a clothespin for added security. Check out how to make yarn pom poms below with this simple method.
