White Chocolate Dipped Peeps with Sprinkles

White Chocolate Dipped Peeps with Sprinkles

Easter is one of my favorite holidays! It is my favorite for a few reasons 1) Because of Jesus! 2) Cute Springtime Easter Outfits, 3) Family Gatherings, 4) Easter Egg Hunts, 5) EASTER CANDY! I love the special seasonal candy that you can only get at Easter time.

Speaking of Easter Candy – Can we just take a moment to talk Peeps. You know, the sugar coated bunny shaped marshmallow candies. I was totally shocked last Easter when I bit into an orange Peep, only to discover it was an orange cream flavored marshmallow. When did peeps add flavoring to their candy?! This year, as I was cruising the Easter candy aisle, when I discovered MORE FLAVORS! Here is the 2021 Peeps flavor line up: Hot Tamales, Cotton Candy, Party Cake and my kids favorite – FRUIT PUNCH!

DIY STAINED GLASS WINDOW – Paint a Beautiful Stained Glass Window in Just a Few Simple Steps

DIY STAINED GLASS WINDOW – Paint a Beautiful Stained Glass Window in Just a Few Simple Steps

March 16th marks our “quarantine – anniversary”.  That means one whole year of not being at a church service.  We have been doing church online, which is nice to still be able to be connected to our church community.  But it is not the same as being with people in the flesh. 

I usually spend the Lent season decorating the church and planning the musical productions for the Easter holiday. However, this year as we approach the Easter season, I am reminded that our home has become our church.  And I’ve learned that – You can take the girl out of church, but you can’t take the Church out of the girl! 

My beautiful friend Raemarie posted this amazing painted stain glass window that she did with her girls on Facebook.  She graciously gave me all the tips and tricks for this DIY Easter Project!  THANKS, GIRL FOR THIS AMAZING EASTER INSPO!

This is Raemarie and her daughter’s artwork. ARE YOU NOT INSPIRED!? So beautiful right?!

This year I decided that I had to try! This Painted Stain Glass Window is a very simple, fun and easy project the whole family enjoyed.  And we will be enjoying it during the Lent and Easter season. 

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Painter’s Tape – We used 1’ size.
  • Paint Brushes – We used two different types of brushes that gave our paint strokes different textures
  • Acrylic Paints – We used Apple Barrel paints.  You can find them at Walmart for $.50!!!
  • Dish Soap – According to my friend a drop of dish soap will help with cleaning the window later. 
  • Paper Plates:  We used paper plates as a palette.

Directions:

  1.  Pick a window and Clean it really well
  2. Using the Painters tape – Tape off your design.
  3. Mix Paints with a small drop of dish soap
  4. Begin Painting
  5. Allow Paint to completely dry
  6. Remove Tape

Tips: 

  • Only use a drop of dish soap.  If you use too much, the paint becomes too runny.
  • Use multiple paint brushes.  It is easier to have a brush for each color.  So that you do not have to continue to clean the brushes to paint a different color.
  • Mix acrylic colors together to make unique color shades.  (Just think back to elementary school).
  • For best results remove tape when paint is completely dry.
  • Don’t worry about being perfect or matching each side – unless that’s what you want.  We found that there was beauty in the mosaic-ness of it. 
  • If possible, pick a window where the sun shines through. 
  • Keep an eye on those toddlers – mine started running through the house painting random walls!

Give it a try and let me know in the comments how it went!  Or tag @ezzyandme on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram!

Happy Easter for Our Home to Yours,
