2x4 Bunny Blocks

The paint supplies for these 2x4 Bunny Blocks was provided by Plaid Crafts.

These 2x4 Bunny Blocks are a fun little craft to bring a little spring to your decor.
You may even have everything you need on hand...we used a 2x4 from our scrap pile.
2x4 Bunny Blocks | Make these simple bunny blocks out of scrap wood and paint. The perfect little addition to your Easter decor.
I love a good 2x4 project...mainly because I have loads of leftover 2x4s on hand from various projects. Usually, these projects don't cost a thing to put together...and are fairly uncomplicated, too. Check out the tutorial for these 2x4 Bunny Blocks below.

Free Spring Watercolor Printable

This free spring watercolor printable (who doesn't love a Vespa, right?) is available in both vertical and horizontal designs. And if flowers on the front of an aqua moped don't scream spring, I don't know what does.

Free Spring Watercolor Printable: Pretty aqua moped with loads of beautiful spring blooms. Available in both vertical and horizontal. Instant downloads.
I honestly had been wanting to do a vintage truck design for spring (similar to the one I did for newsletter subscribers during the holidays with the VW Bug and Christmas tree). But, I couldn't get flowers to lay correctly in the bed of the truck in the design...it looked like the truck was actually growing the flowers. While that was interesting and all...it just looked totally wrong. And then a Vespa came to mind! It's like the perfect little spring scenario, right?

Since one of my readers recently requested more horizontal designs, this one is actually available in both styles below.

Watercolor Easter Printables

These six Watercolor Easter Printables are perfect for your spring decor. 
They are the latest addition in my Printables for Purchase line. Grab yours below.

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. 

Or see them each below for more details.

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!).
