Happy Easter Vignette

If you’re looking for a quick and easy Easter decoration, here it is.  The hardest part of this one is waiting for the paint to dry.  This can be customized easily just by changing the colors used, or the saying of your choice.

Here’s how I made the Happy Easter Vignette:

Happy Easter Vignette

To make this, I used some 1 inch wooden blocks that I had on hand.  You can find them easily at any craft store.  Once I’d decided how many blocks that I’d need, I base coated them with white acrylic paint.  Base coating wood makes the color paint that you choose show up the same as it looks in the bottle.  If you don’t prime the wood, the brown color either shows up or makes the paint color seem darker.

I chose soft pastel shades to paint the blocks.  After the white paint had dried, I painted them with the pastel paints, using 2 coats.

After the paint had dried, I arranged the blocks so the blocks would spell  ‘Happy Easter’.  I mixed the block colors up so the top wasn’t the same as the bottom.

Then I used letters that I had left over from my D.I.Y. Whatever Clock project.  They were the perfect size for this project.

Once the letters were arranged & put on, I glued the blocks together using hot glue.  I glued the rows together first, then I glued the top row to the bottom row.

I needed a way to add my glitter.  (No project is complete with out my glitter.)

I’d gotten these little foam glittered eggs from the Dollar Tree last year.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have any purple, yellow or blue.  So, I inserted a wooden round toothpick into the bottom of some of the eggs, painted them with acrylic paint, and when the paint had dried, I used Mod Podge to coat the eggs & then added the color glitter I needed.  (The toothpick makes it easier to hold while painting, gluing or sprinkling the glitter on them and putting them into a piece of Styrofoam keeps them out of the way while drying.)

Once the glue/glitter was dried, I glued them to the blocks.

When the eggs were where I wanted them, I could put it into an arrangement.  I covered a white wooden tray with some light blue satin.  Then I put the finished blocks in the center of the tray.  A light cream bunny was put behind the blocks, & then I surrounded them with some glitter eggs & some painted blue table scatter.  If you don’t know how to paint table scatter to go with what ever decor you want, click here.

The Easter Vignette was done.  I love the way the little bunny is peering over the blocks.

Although this makes a sweet Easter Centerpiece, I wanted to use it in the corner of my bench.  Now it has a home for the rest of the Easter season.

I hope you give this a try.  It’s such an easy project to do.  Changing the color of paints or stuffed animal will make it a unique Easter decoration for your home.

Happy Creating everyone!
