Top 50 DIY Spring Wreaths!
Top 50 DIY Spring Wreaths -a fun way to brighten up your home or front door for Spring!
I don’t know about you … but I’m counting down the days until Spring. 16 more days friends! I never appreciated Spring so much since living in Ohio the past 2 years. Growing up in AZ, we never really had a Spring. Our winters were more of a Spring and it was heavenly. After having countless days below zero, countless snow days and school delays I think just about everyone is ready for Spring.
I’m so excited to make one of these DIY Spring wreaths in the coming weeks to brighten up my home for Spring. I saw ducks outside this morning and see 40’s in the 10 day forecast… this is a GREAT sign! ;)

Pistachio and Chocolate Leprechaun Cookies
Pistachio and Chocolate Leprechaun Cookies by Courtney of Pizzazzerie for I Heart Naptime
I can’t believe St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! It’s one of my favorite holidays to celebrate because (a) excuse to throw a party (b) green is my favorite color and (c) leprechaun cookies! What are leprechaun cookies you ask? They are my family’s favorite St. Patrick’s day treat. They’re full of decadent dark chocolate chips, crunchy walnuts, green M&Ms and pistachio! I created these to have a hint of green (no pinching here!) as well as be absolutely irresistible in flavor.
A few notes on the mix-ins! I include pistachio pudding because it gives a subtle pistachio flavor and hint of green. You can also add a drop or two of green food coloring to the batter for even more green coloring. Up to you! I love the crunch that the chopped walnuts give to these cookies but of course they can be left out or swapped for another favorite. Dark chocolate chips really contrast the sweet pistachio flavor but milk or white chips would be fabulous as well. Just be sure to include green chocolate candies, the leprechaun really loves those !
These cookies don’t take hours to make, in fact they’re ready within one hour so it’s the perfect after-school snack too! Consider packaging these up with a fun black and white striped bow and green shamrock gift tag to give as teacher’s gifts, neighbor’s gifts, party favors, etc! Or just make a big ol’ batch for your family to enjoy during movie night for St. Patrick’s Day! However you enjoy these leprechaun cookies, they are a real treat.
Pistachio and Chocolate Leprechaun Cookies
Whip up a batch of these Leprechaun Cookies full of pistachio and chocolate to make for St. Patricks' Day!
Yield: 1-2 dozen, depending on size
Prep Time: 15
Cook Time: 8-10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding (dry mix)
2 1/4 cups cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup green M&Ms
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
green food coloring *optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In an electric mixer with paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars. Add extracts and pudding mix and eggs one at a time. Beat for 1 minute.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to sugar mixture one a little at a time, mixing thoroughly between each addition. Add a drop or two of green food coloring at this point if you want a stronger green color. Stir in chocolate chips, green M&Ms, chopped walnuts, and any other mix-ins you like!
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are turning slightly golden. Let cool and enjoy!

Silly St. Patrick’s Day Photo Props
Silly St. Patrick’s Day Photo Props by Erin of Strawberry Mommycakes for I Heart Naptime.
Hello all! I’m so excited to be back at I Heart Naptime with these Silly St. Patrick’s Day Photo Props! I have been taking it easy enjoying my new bundle of joy (you have to go see the pictures…he’s adorable), so my holidays are a little more low key this year. Photo props are so fun and the kids always love them, plus they’re super easy to make! All you have to do is print, cut and glue!
I made these photo props extra cute by decorating the wooden dowels I glued onto them. It took me just a couple minutes longer, but I think it makes a HUGE difference.
To make these, you’ll need:
- My FREE Printables, for personal use only
- Card Stock
- 3-12″ Wooden Dowels (mine are 3/16″ in diameter)
- Green Acrylic Paint
- Glitter Washi Tape
- Hot Glue Gun
- First, download the free printables. Print and cut them out and then set aside.
- To decorate the wooden dowel, first tape off sections you don’t want painted. I couldn’t find my masking tape, so I used regular scotch tape wrapped around a couple times and it worked great!
- Paint the dowel, then let it dry. I set mine on a small bowl so it was resting on the taped parts.
- Once the paint is completely dry, wrap the washi tape around the dowels.
- Glue the dowel to the back of the printable (in the middle for the shamrock and mouth and to the side for the hat).
I’m pretty sure the most exciting thing I’ll be doing for St. Patrick’s Day this year will be to wear green…but as long as I’m not wearing yoga pants, I call it a win! Actually, wearing green yoga pants would be a total win. How will you be celebrating this year?

Box of sunshine with free printables
Box of sunshine with free printables -the perfect gift to send someone to brighten their day!
I think we all know someone in our lives who is going through a tough time. Someone who may have lost a loved one, someone who lost their job, someone who is going through a divorce, someone who is struggling with a child, someone with infertility …or maybe someone who is just dealing with the day to day trials life can sometimes bring. If you’re looking for a way to show you care but live far away, or are just not quite sure what to do … send a box full of sunshine! It will make their day!
I remember first seeing this idea when my Uncle passed away a couple of years ago. Someone had made my Grandma a pot of sunshine and painted it yellow. They filled it with all kinds of happy and yellow things. I thought this was such a sweet idea. Then after going through my loss last summer I received a box full of sunshine from my dear friend Tiffany. It totally brightened my day and was honestly just what I needed.
Since I loved this idea so much, I thought I’d share it with all of you and include some free printables, so you can send your own boxes of sunshine!
Here are some fun and yellow things you could put in your box. You could even make it simple by placing the printable tag on a candy bar.
- yellow confetti
- nail polish
- lemon sugar scrub
- lotion or soap
- lemon heads
- peanut m&m’s
- mr. goodbar
