By Mary 82 95

This is a cute project to make with your children. It would also be a great gift for the Easter Bunny to deliver to grandparents! Inexpensive and fun to make! Finished project.

Approximate Time: 1 hour plus drying time

Supplies:

  • foam (dark pink, light pink, white, and assorted colors for eggs)
  • beads (assorted colors)
  • google eyes
  • string
  • black thread and needle
  • black marker
  • glue
  • photos

Instructions:

Templates.

Cut out foam parts using pattern.

Tip: Use sticky back foam for bunny head, but do not peel backing paper off. This will make bunny firmer. You can punch a hole at top of head to hang as a mobile or glue magnet on back.

Glue bunny pieces together. Use black thread for whiskers and insert with needle. Tie knots in back of head. Draw features using black marker.

Depending on how many eggs you want, punch holes at bottom of bunny. Just alternate lengths of string when hanging eggs so all photos show. Knot strings on bunny head and thread beads on.

Cut two pieces for each egg and insert photo between and glue closed. Decorate eggs, if desired. Punch hole at top of each egg and tie with knot to each string.

Happy Easter!

EZ Easter Egg Danglers

By Aysha 44 11

Plastic egg danglers.This charming egg-themed piece of art is created from 3 tiny, colorful plastic eggs and adorable pink ribbon. It can be used as decoration for a doorknob, wall, cabinet, window, drawer, or even rear-view mirror. The eggs can be decorated in a variety of ways, the only real limit is the crafter's imagination. Little gems or stickers can be glued to the egg, or designs can be painted by hand. Glitter spray or plain old glitter and glue can create a really fancy looking piece of art. Small ribbons and fabric flowers are perfect for a true springtime effect. It's a super easy, super fast, and very cheap way to bring some springtime joy to any area.

Approximate Time: about 45 minutes without drying time

Supplies

  • 3 small plastic eggs, 1 and 1/2 inches long
  • 69 inches of pink ribbon
  • 10 inches of "other" colored ribbon
  • yellow craft spray paint
  • pink craft paint
  • paintbrush
  • super glue or craft glue
  • scissors
  • one decorative flower or bow, at least 1 and 1/2 inch big.

Instructions

  1. Take plastic eggs and use a toothpick, needle, or straightened paper clip to poke a small hole in the wide sided bottom. Use a toothpick or paper-clip stuck in the hole as a handle while painting.
  2. Use craft spray-paint or regular craft paint and paint the eggs in assorted colors. Keep the handle in the egg, and place egg in small cup to let dry. You'll probably have to do a second coat for an even and smooth finish, so paint the eggs again, and let dry once more. If hand-painting the eggs, a third coat might be needed, so don't be afraid to repeat the paint and dry step again. Spray paint gives a shiny looking finish, hand-painting with craft paint will not. If a shiny look is desired when using craft paint, try some clear, glossy varnish made for general crafts. But wait and do the egg decorating in the next step before varnishing the craft paint.
  3. Use a little craft paint and a paintbrush to create a design on the eggs. Try "natural egg" blotches like in the photo, or try a glitter spray, stamping, stickers, or whatever you want to decorate the eggs. Let dry. If spray varnish is desired, now is the time to spray it on and let dry completely.
  4. Pick a shiny, thin pink ribbon, and cut 2 pieces 13 and 1/2 inches long, 2 pieces 16 inches long, and one piece 10 inches long. Pick a different colored ribbon and cut one piece 10 inches long.
  5. Fold the 10 inches pink ribbon in half and use a tiny dab of glue on the wide sided bottom of the egg where you made the hole. Press the fold of the ribbon into the glue and hold for five seconds. Wipe off any glue that got on the egg outside of the ribbon. Attach 13 and 1/2 inch ribbon to an egg as described, and a 16 inch ribbon to an egg. Let dry.
  6. Once dry, gather up the ribbons with eggs and make sure that all ribbon ends meet evenly, so that the eggs are hanging unevenly. Tie the top of the ribbons in a sturdy knot. Take the two remaining pink ribbons and drape them loosely around a doorknob and tie them in a loop with a knot. Slide the two knots next to each other, the one with the eggs hanging down, and the one with the plain ribbons on-top. Use assorted color ribbon to securely tie the two knots together with a bow. Now there are lots of easy, festive ribbons dangling around. Use a bow or flower and tie or glue it over the knots, in the middle of the bow.
  7. Hang from door, wall, cupboard, or rear-view mirror and enjoy!

Easter Scene Wooden Fence

Fence with bunny.This is a craft stick fence for your happy Easter scene!

Simply interlock craft sticks, to form a zigzag fence to frame a nice little Easter village scene! You can snap off the ends of other craft sticks to interlock the open ends together, as seen in the picture.

Remember to keep track of the craft stick heights, as in have the fence even. Make sure that every other fence length of the zigzag (as in every "zig" part) is level on your hard work surface. I had to go back and level mine out because I accidentally stacked craft sticks in unequal heights.

Hanging Easter Egg Decoration

By Donna 309 325

I just wanted a simple but fun idea to decorate my dining room so I added cut colored pieces of ribbon to some plastic eggs. The eggs were hinged, so I simply laid the ribbon over the hinge and closed it. Then I tied the eggs to my dining room light.

Craft: Bunny Tails

By Mom2Gracie 7 1

Supplies:

  • cotton balls (10-20 per tail)
  • glue
  • string, yarn, or twine
Bunny Tails

Directions:

Cut enough string, yarn, or twine to wrap around the waist of the one who will wear the tail. In the middle of the string, start gluing the cotton balls in a clump. This is the messiest part, as the glue won't easily spread on the cotton balls. Keep adding cotton balls until you get the fluffiness you desire from the tail. Once dry, tie around the waist of your adorable bunny and have fun! Bunny Tails

The best part is, this craft is SUPER cheap depending on supplies on hand. It also makes a great prop for adorable pictures.

Tip: Spell "Easter" With Craft Stick Letters

Craft sticks spelling Happy Easter.These wooden "Happy Easter" letters work well for a window sill, garden, or to string on or as a banner!

Using the picture as a guide, make craft stick letters. For the smaller and horizontal parts of letters, as in the bar in "A" and the right-side parts of "P", snap (break) the inner most wood cuts. Be sure to have the pieces, such as in the letter "S" evenly overlapped; left sides over right, or the opposite.

Use the picture as a guideline! Paint if you'd like with spray paint or wood stain, etc.

Ideas for uses:

  • Lay on serving or food table at your Easter party

  • Stand on a window sill, leaning up against the glass of a window, facing outside or inside

  • Spray with aerosol sealer or cover with "Modge Podge" brand sealer, let dry and stick in the ground by your front door, in a garden bed, or a (rectangular) flower pot; or hot glue sturdy wire to each letter, then stick the wire into the ground

  • Hot glue letters to a strip of fabric and hang as an Easter banner

  • Hot glue ribbon from the tops and tack above a door way

Make names and celebrate other holidays with this craft stick letter-making!
