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!
I have to admit, I’m pretty disappointed with the DIY adult costumes this year, but the kid ones are awesome! I saw the Anna Wintour one via Pintrest and fell in love - so cute, plus if you get bored you can read the Vogue mag!
Though Oh Happy Day suggests keeping these in your bag to hand out to friends on the go, (which is an awesome idea!), these would also make great grown up invites too! I’m imagining a pool side party with lots of glitter, pink plastic flamingos and brightly coloured cocktails. Maybe for my big 3-0 party next year?!
Oh Happy Day has put together an amazing round up of her paper crafts and I’m so inspired! My sister is having a baby shower and I’m thinking the giant paper flowers would be super fun to have dotted around.
My Uncle had a croquembouche for his wedding - a huge tower of profiteroles filled with cream and drizzled with chocolate and caramel. It was rumoured to be very expensive. But honestly, I would have prefered this version - with donut holes! Yum! Plus this is such a stunner - imagine pulling this out at a party! I would eat this entire thing myself…
DIY Your Party!
I saw these DIY party ideas via Dotcoms For Moms and couldn’t wait to share them with you! Bright, colourful and easy to make, they’re sure to add fun to your party.
Feeling creative? Why not paint this amazing floral tablecloth!? Big, painterly roses are so easy to create and will look fabulous on your table. Don’t be afraid to ‘get it wrong’, just think of it as your artistic interpretation!
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!
These are freakin’ adorable! So good to have with your coffee, or even with a chocolate mousse or ice cream. Now just to find a spoon cookie cutter…
Though I’m a grown up, I still think that these alphabet letters are still awesome! So comfy, soft and fun. These would also be great for a wedding - do your initials and use them for photo props!
Hang Up The Garland!
There’s nothing sweeter to decorate a space than a garland. And there are so many great DIYs out there that there’s a style to suit any space. Here are three of my favourites:
You guys might remember from ages ago the giant version of this mini marquee from Oh Happy Day? Well I thought I loved that one - but the mini one is even better! So many possibilities for using this marquee - from weddings and parties to decorating any room of your house!
OHP is one of my favourite DIY sites and she’s created a great round up of some of her best Christmas DIY crafts. For something fun on Christmas day I think I’m going to print out those party photo props!
Ok, so these are ‘little’ artist costumes (which are so freakin’ adorable I can barely take it!) but of course these are so easy to create that ‘bigs’ can make these too! Personally I adore the Frieda Kahlo outfit but the Vincent Van Gogh is hilarious!
One thing I love to do but am always terrible at is cake decorating! I always see pictures of these delicious cakes and think - I could totallydo that - and they always promise that it’s so easy! Well when I saw this cake I thought, ‘Easy? Yeah right’. But once I actually saw this tutorial I thought - hmm, maybe I coulddo that! Yes, it would take more than the usual slap dash 5 minute icing job, but if you’re wanting to make a cake for a special occasion then this would be perfect. Plus don’t you think it looks even more delicious?!
