So I have to say that last night was the most crafty I have ever gotten!  Maybe you can relate, but I'm the type of person that would rather have someone else do my crafts for me, or buy something already put together.  I normally don't have the patience to do bigger projects but I need to start doing them more often because the end results are totally worth it!  I'm so glad my mother-in-law Tanya got us girls all together last night to do some DIY spring/Easter decorations.  She was at The Wood Connection Store when she came across the cutest letters to decorate!  She picked up the "EASTER" block letters and then I had Tyson go get me the "SPRING" letters that were just a solid wood. Here are the steps if you want to do your own!

1. Sand the letters down to make painting easier (thanks Kenz)
2. Trace the letters onto scrapbook paper
3. Paint the sides and backs of letters
4. While those are drying completely, cut out the letters from scrapbook paper
5. Using a modge-podge glue, paint the front of the wooden blocks and stick the paper to the front
6. Use an exacto knife to trim any of the edges. 

Love having a touch of Spring finally in my house! Go get yours done now!
