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.
You could add cute sayings, candy, 'fortunes' or anything inside the eggs and let the children or adult dinner guests PICK an egg at the end of their dinner for a surprise inside!
Fill this cute little bunny with Easter treats or a new pair of sunglasses, then stick it into your child's Easter basket.
Approximate Time: 45 minutes - 1 hour
felt - white and pink
black fine tip marker
pom poms, one large white, one smaller pink
Measure and cut 2, 8 inch pieces of white felt. Cut the corners from one end of each rectangle to make a curved end.
Draw and cut four paw shapes from white felt. Glue the paws to the sides of one of the rectangles, and then glue the rectangles together around three edges, leaving the curved end open, and sandwiching the paw ends in between the rectangles.
Draw and cut a circle head and ears from white felt. Glue these to the top of curved end, covering the curve on one rectangle. Now, draw and cut two smaller ear shapes from pink felt and glue the pink inner ears to the white ears.
Glue on the white pom pom tail and wiggle eyes.
Cut pink yarn whiskers and glue them in place on the face, and then glue on the pink pom pom nose.
Your bunny can be filled with Easter treats or a spiffy new pair of sunglasses and then added to your child's basket of treats for 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!
These are little Easter jars. The first was filled with preserves and the other with spaghetti sauce. I got a dollar stamp from Michaels and some spring paper and made these jars for Easter for the grandkids. They were very easy and I love recycling the jars
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
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
super glue or craft glue
one decorative flower or bow, at least 1 and 1/2 inch big.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hang from door, wall, cupboard, or rear-view mirror and enjoy!
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!
The best part is, this craft is SUPER cheap depending on supplies on hand. It also makes a great prop for adorable pictures.
