SPRING BLOCKS

Spring is HERE!!!
Finally!!
(well, at least for a couple days! but I'll take what I can get!!)

To celebrate, I decided to make spring decorations for my mantle. I love letter blocks, like these ones that Jacki and I made, but I'm really trying to craft with things I already have. While going through my craft junk, I found some small blocks that were given to me a long time ago. They were smaller than what I wanted, but I decided to work with what I had! Here's what I came up with.


I painted the blocks pink, then mod podged scrapbook paper on all sides. I used my cricut to cut out the letters, and then did a final coat of mod podge to seal it.


Unfortunately my mantel isn't very deep, so I couldn't put anything other than a few fake flowers to finish it.
But I really like how it turned out!
But wait, there's more....!!!
While I was making these, I realized that Happy Spring and Happy Easter have the exact same amount of letters. So, I put letters on both sides of the blocks. All I have to do is turn the blocks around and VOILA!!



This will make switching decorations so much easier!! I found the idea for the Easter egg garland over at Eighteen25 .
Have you made any Spring or Easter decorations lately??
Thanks for reading!!
