Here Comes Peter Cottontail


Need a cute Easter decoration? Well, no problem. All you need is...

11 wooden blocks - you can use whatever size you like. I used smaller ones about 2x2.
Acrylic Paint - I used a wild orchid purple and I used the Americana brand
1 sponge brush
Letters - I just bought a per-colored bag that had 2 of every letter because you need 2 E, A, and P.
1 Glue Gun


The whole process is really simple. You just paint the blocks whatever color you picked out. You will need a couple coats if you don't want the wood grain to show. The paint dries pretty fast so you can get it done in one day, but be patient and don't paint another coat too soon.



Well you have the color and texture desired glue your letters on! If you can't find pre-color letters you can easily buy blank ones and just paint those too. I loved the look of the different colored letter, blue, pink, yellow and green.

Everything here can be bought at Michaels for fairly cheap.


Blocks - .99$ each block
Brush - .75 $
Letters - 2.50$
Paint - 1.99$
Endless Fun and Enjoyment - Priceless :)
And on Wensday I am doing my first giveaway. So remember to enter.

  2. These are so cute. I don't have anywhere near (well actually none) enough seasonal decorations. Maybe we'll make these for our next girl's night activity!

  4. these are great - my kids love to paint as long as you're not particular about them getting it on stuff (they paint mostly naked).
    love the moose story (my nickname is Moose, but I don't eat lilacs - they're too beautiful and smell divine).

  5. I'm impressed. I'm about as crafty as putting cardboard ears on a bear and calling him a rabbit.

  7. I was wondering where to find wood blocks! Chris' dad made the last ones for me. I had checked at both JoAnns and wal-mart and they didn't have them. Now I know that Michael's is the answer. Thanks!

  10. What a cute idea, and your daughter is just precious. I just love baby girls as you can see from my blog.

    Love your blog, the moose would have freaked me out. The largest animal we have around here are white tail deer, they don't get near that big and are way to skiddish to come up on the porch.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, come back often. I just love seeing where people are from and what they have to say.

  11. Super cute!
    Thanks for the kind words and help. I am the same way, if I dont eat I get sick. This is a crazy approach for me since I usually did not eat too much before I was pregnant. Visit anytime and thanks again!

  21. Well the someone is sueing them just because they called it a "miracle" cure and they are sueing because they didnt do a study to prove it was a miracle. So basically it was a poor choice of words and someone is trying to make a buck because of that. There have been many studies and it does prove and has shown that airbourne does help boost your immune system and help your body continue to build one. So it is not considered a "cold remedy" but more of a dietry supplement because it helps your body with vitamins and such. Hope this helps

  25. OK--great ideas! You are too much. I'm feeling a little lame. I thought getting those plastic eggs and putting jelly beans in them was creative. You've inspired me!
