St. Patrick’s Day Mantel + Rainbow Printable Banner

Well here we are already, Day 5 of our St. Patrick’s Day Food and Fun. This week is all about Rainbows! It’s not too often that I see a rainbow in the sky, but when I do, it always brings a smile to my face. How about you?

We are kicking off this fun Rainbow Week with a little present for you! Charlotte, from The Paper Cupcake created the cutest Rainbow Printable Banner for you…and it’s FREE! Hang tight…keep reading…and I’ll share the printable at the end!

Last year, I shared several recipes with rainbow colors, the Rainbow Cupcakes and Rainbow Jello were definitely the most popular. And still are, so I thought it would be fun to put together a few more ideas with Rainbows, but this year kick it up a notch.

Do you remember the chalkboard on our Winter Mantel? Well, it’s proven once again to be such a fun decorating tool with the St. Patrick’s Day Mantel.

The Rainbow on the Mantel, really started with a vision from Doug this time, and then kind of evolved. We originally started the plan with a metal rod and some balloons, but after chatting a bit about how it would look and checking out the price of balloons, we changed our minds a bit and went with the Tissue Paper Flowers.

We kept the metal rod idea, but after trying to get the flowers to look right for quite awhile, we got rid of the rod and simply attached the flowers to the chalkboard.

Then came the writing on the chalkboard. Since the look of the St. Patrick’s Day Mantel was fun and whimsical, we decided to just randomly write words that are related to St. Patrick’s Day. I used the brilliant tip that Gina taught me when using chalk…wet the chalkboard and use wet chalk…simple!

What do you find at the end of a Rainbow? A Pot of Gold…of course…

We found the Pot filled with beads and gold at Walmart and the Leprechaun was left over from last year’s St. Patrick’s Day Mantel. Here is what I used to decorate with…

St. Patrick’s Day Mantel Supplies:

  • Tissue Paper Flowers – learn how to make them HERE
  • Chalkboard + chalk – remember to wet the chalkboard and use wet chalk {just soak the chalk in a damp cloth}
  • Pot of gold {available at Walmart}
  • Leprechaun
  • Lucky Banner – print it out – THANK YOU to Charlotte from The Paper Cupcake
  • Hang banner with twine and mini clothespins

So here’s the deal with the Rainbow Printable Banner

First…head on over to The Paper Cupcake Facebook page and tell Charlotte how much you love her! And thank her for the printable!

Then..come back and click HERE, save and print the banner for your St. Patrick’s Day decorating!

Rainbow Ice Cream Pops

Rainbow Week is sadly just about done. I have one more fun recipe for you…Rainbow Ice Cream! I first shared the recipe a couple years along with the Rainbow Cupcakes. It’s such a fun idea, I wanted to bring it back again, but this time I created Rainbow Ice Cream Pops!

Rainbow Ice Cream Pops :: Recipe on HoosierHomemade.com

How fun are these? And…you guessed it! They are easy!

Rainbow Ice Cream Pops :: Recipe on HoosierHomemade.com

These Rainbow Ice Cream Pops are perfect for birthday parties or your St. Patrick’s Day Celebration…even a special after school treat! Let’s get started…

Rainbow Ice Cream Recipe :: HoosierHomemade.com

All you need are 2 ingredients for the Rainbow Ice Cream…Vanilla Ice Cream and Jell-O.

Rainbow Ice Cream Recipe :: HoosierHomemade.com

  1. Remove Ice Cream from the freezer and soften for 10 – 15 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons DRY Grape Jello in a plastic container
  3. Divide Ice Cream into 5 equal parts, spread ice cream over jello {it’s okay if the ice cream is lumpy, I used a spoon that I ran under hot water to help spread it}
  4. Repeat with remaining DRY Jell-O and ice cream
  5. Cover and place in freezer overnight or several hours

Rainbow Ice Cream Recipe :: HoosierHomemade.com

Run hot water on outside of container to loosen Ice Cream, and turn out onto wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Rainbow Ice Cream Pops :: Recipe on HoosierHomemade.com

Using a small cookie dough scoop, scoop the Rainbow Ice Cream into a mini muffin pan. I found it easiest this way so that the Ice Cream doesn’t spread. Pop them into the freezer for 5-10 minutes, pull them out and add the popsicle stick, then back into the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Rainbow Ice Cream Pops :: Recipe on HoosierHomemade.com

Now it’s time to coat them with chocolate. Melt chocolate chips with oil in the microwave, start with 20 seconds, and stir every 5 – 10 seconds until completely melted. Let set on the counter for about 15 minutes until room temperature, this is important because if the chocolate is too hot it will melt the Ice Cream.

Remove the pops from the pan, use a knife if necessary, dip in chocolate and let excess drip off, immediately add Rainbow Jimmie Sprinkles. Place back in freezer on wax or parchment paper.

I displayed the Rainbow Ice Cream Pops in jars filled with colored sand, available at Michael’s. The Printable Lucky Flags are from Cupcake Chronicles Newsletter and can be found on the Printables Archive page.

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat

We are back today with a fun project to spruce up your home for Spring! This has to be one of our favorite projects in awhile, we had lots of fun creating the Painted Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat!

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

You can certainly paint your Outdoor Mat any color, but since we are celebrating Rainbow Week, we decided to use a Rainbow of Colors! There is however, a little story behind this finished project…last year during Rainbow Week, I fell in love with the Wooden Floor Mat and then promptly ran out of time to give it a try. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when we were deciding what to share with you for Rainbow Week and I knew we just had to give the Floor Mat a try.

So we headed to The Home Depot, where we priced out the supplies…$70…yikes! We weren’t really planning on paying that much, and besides we thought it was a bit much for a Floor Mat. So we proceeded to do what we love…start thinking outside the box and hunt around the store.

And sure enough, we happened upon a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat and it was only $8…perfect!

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

But how would we paint it?

What kind of paint would work?

And what should we seal it with?

So we headed to the paint department, where we asked the helpful employee. At first he thought it was rather strange, why would we want to paint it, but I showed him a picture of the Wooden Floor Mat, and he quickly understood.

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

Here’s what we came up with…

Supplies to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat

  • Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat – available at The Home Depot
  • Paint – we used Acrylic Paint, it comes 24 jars in a box from Walmart in the craft department – these were much cheaper than buying sample bottles or quarts of paint, but if you are doing less colors you will need to buy larger bottles
  • Sealer – Rust-Oleum Paint Plus Ultra Cover Clear – available in the paint section at The Home Depot
  • Brushes – small foam brushes work perfectly – available at Walmart or craft stores

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

Now it was time to figure out how to select the colors. Doug, being the brilliant man he is, came up with a template. It did take some time, several hours in fact, but when it came time to paint, it was a breeze.

If you are interested, you can download the PDF for the Template.

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

Then each of the jars of paint were numbered. I told Doug, he was a little OCD with it, but honestly, it was perfect!

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

Then we just started painting, the foam brushes worked perfectly. It took a couple evenings to paint, but we just worked on it while we were watching TV. We wrapped the brushes in foil to keep the paint from drying and numbered them also so we didn’t get any of the colors mixed up.

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

We gave it 2 coats of paint and let it set for a couple days to dry completely.

How to Paint a Recycled Rubber Outdoor Mat :: Instructions on HoosierHomemade.com

Then a coat of the sealer.

Now we have a bright Rainbow Door Mat to welcome our guests! I think it will look great with the Rainbow Balloon Wreath hanging on the door. Now we just have to get rid of the foot of snow we have and some warmer temperatures!

Rainbow Recipes and Ideas: Inspiration Sunday

Here we are…the last day of Rainbow Week. I’ll have to say…I’m a little sad. I loved creating and sharing the Rainbow Recipes, Decorations and Printables with you.

But every good thing has to come to an end, but never fear…we still have a whole week left of St. Patrick’s Day Food and Fun! I have pulled LOTS of Rainbow Recipes and Ideas together for you, some from this year’s Rainbow Week, some from last year and some inspiration from Pinterest.

Let’s start with a re-cap from Rainbow Week

Here are a few goodies I shared last year…

And some aw-inspiring Rainbow Recipes from Blogland…

Rainbow Cake and St. Patrick’s Day Printables

Well, here we are almost to end of Rainbow Week! It’s been a blast! Tomorrow I will share a few things that I love for Inspiration Sunday, but for today…this Rainbow Cake!

Now I’ll to admit…I’m not the best cake baker in the world, or rather…the best cake decorator. Probably because I don’t have much practice {I’m always making cupcakes}, but the Rainbow Cake is definitely fun…colorful…and easy to do! Oh and it’s pretty tasty too!

I started with a Funfetti Cake Mix and added the ingredients that I always do to make it taste more like homemade, and baked it in a 13×9 pan. Then whipped up a  batch of American Buttercream, using the recipe from Glorious Treats. Cut the cake in half, and frosted in between the layers, top and sides.

For the Rainbow frosting, I used Decorator Icing that I had left over from the Mini Funfetti Sandwich Cookies, and using a #12 tip, piped on the dots. Added sprinkles to the top and the Rainbow Bunting Flags!

The super talented Charlotte from The Paper Cupcake designed THREE for you…the Rainbow Bunting Flags for all your Rainbow Parties and the other two with “Lucky” on them for St. Patrick’s Day. One for your cupcakes and the other for your home! How fun!

Head on over and grab the “Lucky” Banner for your home and if you would like the Mini Rainbow Bunting Flags, you will need to subscribe to Cupcake Chronicles Newsletter. It’s a free weekly newsletter that includes a monthly printable from The Paper Cupcake!

Mini Funfetti Sandwich Cookies

Are you enjoying all the fun ideas for Rainbow Week? I hope so…because I’m having a blast creating them for you! From the Mantel…to cupcakes…to a wreath…and now…Mini Funfetti Sandwich Cookies…the Rainbow fun continues!

These cookies are similar to Whoopie Pies, but since I didn’t use a traditional whoopie pie filling, I didn’t think I should call them that. Whatever they are called…I think they are so cute…and yummy, of course!

The cookies are made with 3 simple ingredients…a Funfetti Cake Mix, butter and 1 egg and they are filled with brightly colored Buttercream Frosting, in colors of the Rainbow. And we can’t forget the sprinkles…lots of sprinkles!

Rainbow Pinwheel Wreath

It’s time to have some more fun with Rainbows and Pinwheels. We are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with 17 days of Food and Fun, and this week is all about Rainbows! On Monday, I shared our St. Patrick’s Day Mantel with Rainbow Tissue Paper Flowers and yesterday we enjoy Mini Rainbow Cupcakes. Today…let’s make a Rainbow Pinwheel Wreath!

Last week I showed you how to make paper pinwheels, they are easy and the decorating ideas are endless. And this Rainbow Pinwheel Wreath is yet another fun project for you to make!




The Rainbow paper comes in a pack from Walmart, and just like the other pinwheels, we used spray adhesive to make them double sided. The wreath is straw {one that I had in my stash} and I just wrapped it with wide green painters tape so that the pinwheels would stick to it better.

This antique ironing board hangs on the wall in our Living Room, with a grapevine wreath hung with burlap. I simply added the Rainbow Pinwheel Wreath on top on the other wreath. It makes a fun splash of color to the wall.

Rainbow Pinwheel Wreath Supplies:

  • Solid scrapbook paper {I bought mine at Walmart for $5/pack}
  • Supplies to make the pinwheels – Learn how to make a paper pinwheel 
  • Wreath – I used straw, but styrofoam would work too
  • Hot glue gun

We are having so much celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with 17 days of Food and Fun! And all this week, it’s all about Rainbows! Did you grab your Printable Banner from yesterday? Thanks again to The Paper Cupcake for designing and offering it!

While I was coming up with ideas for Rainbow Week, I knew I wanted to share Rainbow Cupcakes, but there are limited ways to create them, then I remembered the Candy Corn Cupcakes on a stick that I shared last Fall. I knew right away what I wanted to share with you.

Mini Rainbow Cupcakes

Adorable? I think so! Even though Rainbows are often used for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, I think these would work great for a birthday party or maybe even a teen sleepover.
