How sweet are these critter egg holders?! Not only are they free to download, you can also customise the names at the bottom so you can use these as place holders (or as Lia suggests, finger puppets!)
If you celebrate Easter in your family but don’t want to overload the little ones with chocolate, these twist tie bunny ears are a great gift that is super easy to make! In the same style as the retro twist head ties that I’m seeing everywhere these ears in pink & white have a piece of wire inserted inside so you can fashion them in to a pair of big bunny ears. So fun and great for girls and boys!
Though I absolutely adore these clay eggs, it wasn’t just them that made me want to share this DIY - it’s how they were created! Usually you bake polymer clay in the oven once you’re finished creating your design. But thicker pieces like these eggs would take a long time to bake and apparently discolour if baked too long. So One Dog Woof set these eggs by cooking them in the microwave in a quart of water! I’m wondering if anyone else has ever tried this technique and how it turned out? I’d love to try it but I’m scared of exploding my microwave!
Here is an egg-cellent (puns!) round up of the best Easter crafts from one of my favourite blogs Oh Happy Day! My favourites are definitely the Easter egg pinatas and the calligraphy eggs - make sure to click through to see all 12 crafts!
At the moment I’m making this gorgeous wreath by Lia Griffith, but honestly I just want to make every single paper craft on her website! She has so many amazing, gorgeous and well designed paper crafts on her site. And they’re all free! This beautiful Easter flower would be a really lovely gift for those who can’t/don’t eat chocolate, or to top a present. I printed my flowers on my home computer but if your printer isn’t the best you could take the file to your local print store.
I love the idea of having an Easter tradition of getting everyone to make their own Easter bonnet! And Oh Happy Day delivers with instructions on how to make the perfect ones. These combine everything about Spring & Easter to me - ribbon, pastel, flowers - like happiness for your head! Love times a million!
Yep, that’s right, these pretty little gem coloured beauties are made from eggs! If you’re over painting eggs, this is a great crafty/science alternative. You will need alum powder and at least two days to grow your crystals, but how amazing is the finished product?!
If you want to decorate eggs this Easter but you’re not keen on the whole dyeing idea, here is a fun alternative - sharpies! Buy yourself some pastel shades and get creative. If you’re having a get together, you could even make them into place markers!
I’ve been just staring at this cake for the last ten minutes, scrolling, scrolling, thinking, staring, So of course I just had to share it with you! It’s a tradition in my family that my mum always makes an Easter cake. She makes a chocolate cake in a bundt mold and then fills the middle with chocolate eggs and sprinkles it with chocolate shavings. This is like the mod, pastel version of that cake! I love tradition so i’m thinking this might be my version to continue it!
Jelly Bean Embroidery | Wild Olive
Easter started in January this year. That’s right, next to the clearance rack with the tinsel, bon-bons and baubles were Easter eggs! Crazy. And it’s so hard - Easter is when they bring out Cadbury Creme Eggs and they are my weakness! Do they have these anywhere else? Hoo boy. Anyway, I’ve now started a healthy eating diet to loose weight, feel better, etc along with the rest of my family. It’s still nice to give gifts though, so I’ll be making some lovely little hand made items for my family instead (except for my niece - she’ll still get chocolate!) This super cute jelly bean embroidery pattern is perfect for my sister - how cute is that little one in the bottom with the frowney face?! All the sweetness, none of the calories!
Easter Fingernail Art | Holiday Snob
What a cute way to celebrate Easter! These are so sweet, as are all the other DIYs featured. I tell you what, ever since they bought out those nail art pens I feel like I could actually attempt these things now. Though I think I’ll have to wait for a price reduction before I buy one, they’re sooo expensive!
Wee Bunny Pattern | Wee Wonderfuls
Oh my gosh, how cute is this!? And just in time for Easter - I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love to see this cute little thing in their Easter basket. I’ve been trying to find non-edible Easter items for my niece - one, because she isn’t really a big chocolate girl, and two… because I don’t want her thinking that Easter is just all about chocolate! The Wee Wonderfuls website is full of adorableness, and her shop is just as cute.
Sweet Tweets | It Is What It Is
I’ve lamented Australia’s lack of Peeps, but that doesn’t mean I can’t share something as sweet as this bag topper (haha! accidental pun) for y’all to use. Just promise me you’ll have a Peep for me!
Spring Nests | Martha Stewart
Birds nests (real ones) give me the creeps. I used to love them but when I was younger someone told me about how there were nits, bugs & other creepy crawlies living in them and due to my already massive fear of bugs, it basically meant that I’d never pick one up again! So to still have the magic of a little nest in my house, I’ll make my own and add my own little eggs - No bugs!
Paper Punched Easter Eggs | Niki In Stitches
This is one of the nicest egg decorating projects I’ve seen! I really need to invest in a circle paper punch! I’m thinking this would also be really nice on a round styrofoam ball and hang them above a fireplace or a bed? I’ve got a big project on the go and I think this would look perfect with it… More info coming soon!
