Top 5… Easter Crafts!

With three more days left of this Easter weekend ahead of us, there is no excuse not to get crafty! The weather may be grey, but why not release your inner creative streak with a few of these egg-citing (sorry!) Easter crafts to brighten up your day!

 

1. Easter Bunting!

I am not sure about you, but I am so excited with the idea of using paint swatches to make stuff – they are pretty much in unlimited colours! Check out this idea from Modern Parents, Messy Kids for making paint swatch Easter Egg bunting! I have already asked the husband if we have any spare in the house to make some…

 

2. Wine cork chicks!

How about these super cute printed chickadees? Cork being the perfect-paint-printer-base, just add eyes, legs, a little card mouth and et voila a perfect Easter piece of art! This would be effective repeated on a paper tablecloth, as a greeting card, or just something lovely to put up on the fridge! The only downside to this crafty idea, is once that wine bottle has been opened, it will need to be consumed… 😉

 

3. Rainbow Crayons!

Now these, are pretty epic. Just how cool would it be to literally draw in a rainbow pallette with these bright and cute homemade bunny crayons from Moonfrye. You are bound to see Easter themed silicone moulds – eggs, bunnies, chicks – in any supermarket this weekend, or in your local Lakeland store – and I bet, if you have kids – you’ll have a spare few hundred crayons to make this cheap, and simple – but oh so exciting creation. In fact, even if you don’t have kids – go out and buy some crayons just to do this!

 

4. Bunny Treat Bags!

Planning to give out some sweeties this weekend? Why not get creative with how you present them with these Bunny Ear Treat Bags from Oh Happy Day. It’s a quick and easy craft that looks so effective!

 

5. Springtime Wreath!

This beautiful wreath will take abit more preparation – unless you happen to have some fluffy green wool, a wreath base, and some lace daisies already hanging about your house – but all should be available in your local craft shop or Hobbycraft. It’s such a simple concept – but the final results look beautiful! This could even be used as a table centrepiece for tomorrow’s Easter lunch! Fill will chocolate eggs for extra happy Easter guests!

 

Happy Easter everyone, let’s hope the Easter bunny pays you a visit 🙂
