We have always made gingerbread houses at Christmas time. I've had so much fun making them over the years that I decided to carry it over to Easter. Here is my first creation, the house of Mr. Easter Bunny himself.

These little creatures will bring delight to an Easter basket or table decoration. They are made of fabric circles called yo yos. I just added some pom poms, jiggle eyes, etc. It was a fun project.
Approximate Time: each one took about 30 minutes.
Sew each circle about 1/4 inch around the edge with a basting stitch, pull up, and gather thus forming a yo yo. Tack thread in the middle to secure gathering. Do this with all circles.

These Easter eggs are very easy to make.
All you need is:
If you want to keep some eggshells white it might be a good idea to boil your eggshells so you don't get sick.
Start saving your eggshells now so you can make these before Easter!

My brother-in-law cut out all the forms and a couple of us girls got together and finished the wood products. With our own ideas along with the help of my crafty sister-in-law helping us. With a little paint, sponges and friendship, the bunny turned into a fun night and a wonderful Easter decor.

This is a fairly easy craft to do this weekend, just in time for Easter. My niece showed me the one she had made and it was darling! A washcloth bunny.
You take a plain white washcloth and twist it, then form a "doughnut" shape. Keep two corners of the wash cloth free for "ears."
When you have the doughnut shape you want, take a rubber band and bind it tightly where the two ends of the washcloth meet.
Pull out the "free" corners of the washcloth so they stick out like ears. You're ready for the fun parts now.
Hot glue a cotton ball "tail" on the back, two googly eyes on the front, and then a pink pom pom below the eyes for a nose. In the middle of the doughnut shaped washcloth, you can stick one of those little paper "nut cups" and put some jelly beans in.
Now you can give it to a neighbor for Easter. I hope my directions were clear enough. Happy Easter!

These faux chocolate bunnies make great decorations and are the perfect sugar-free Easter basket filler!
A cheery and easy wreath to welcome guests for Easter Sunday.
With some firm felt, paint, and ribbon, you can make multiple egg decorations all at the same time.
Peter Rabbit will be delighted when he sees your windows on Easter morning and the youngsters will have a ball helping make this fun craft.
This is a oops bunny that got stuck in a flower pot hiding the eggs. I used a 4 inch flower pot, a 4 inch Styrofoam ball and a Styrofoam egg, with craft foam for the feet pads.
Paint your flower pot. Glue the ball into it. Cut the egg in half and glue on for feet. Glue on the feet pads and pom pom tail.

This craft makes a lovely Easter and spring decoration for your front door.
Start by pulling the layers of the napkins apart, usually two-ply. Cut up napkins into 4x4 inch squares. Layer your glue all over the outside rim of the hat, a good covering of glue. Place the napkins, print side up, in all different overlappings, until the entire brim is covered. Let this dry completely for a few hours.
While this is drying, you can be choosing what flowers you will decorate with. Decide what combination goes best, greens look very real. Silk baby's breath is nice to work with also. Cut the stems of each flower with only 3-4 inches of stem remaining.
When the hat is dry, go over the top of the napkins gently, using your finger tips, with another layer of glue until completely covered.
When this dries clear, the flowered napkins will show through beautifully. It leaves a lovely shine on the finish of the hat.
Now bend up one side only on the hat, bending it toward the round bump of the head of the hat, and staple it down in the center.
This gives you a pocket on each side of the hat to stuff with flowers.
Now, to decorate your hat, decide by practicing where all the flowers are to be. Then hot glue the stem of each flower individually, and stick it through the opening. Keep filling with flowers until your bonnet is filled to your desire.
The last thing I do, is measure the circumference of the head of the hat and cut a piece of ribbon and hot glue it around for the hat band.
Finally, make a bow, by just looping your ribbon over and over. When you're done, using thin wire, twist the wire around the center of the bow. Make sure you leave enough for the bow to trail. Cut each end of the trailing ribbon in a triangular fashion. Attach your bow to the middle of your bonnet. It makes a lovely Easter and spring decoration for your front door. Again, this sounds like a lot, but it takes as long for me to describe this as it does to actually make one! Enjoy!
~Happy spring to all~

It's not too late to make this adorable bunny. It is quite easy and fun to do with the kids.
My daughter created this cute little bunny magnet in no time. It would also be cute to wear as a pin. Simply glue a pin back to the back of the bunny's head instead of the magnetic strip.
An easy way to decorate your grapevine wreaths for Easter are just to run a ribbon through it's vines and then just use plastic eggs and sandwich the ribbon between the egg and close (no glue needed). Add silk flowers and then choose two colors of ribbon, cut in 12 inch strips, and tie and knot off all over the wreath and let dangle. Fast, pretty look and no use of glue. Happy Easter!

This is a quick and easy project you can make using bits and pieces of items you probably already have around the house. You can finish several, as described below, and hang them on a tree, or....
I can't seem to find the directions for the house. It's quite lovely, but I need a little more to go on than just the picture!
A take home favor or place card holder. With a needle or other sharp tool break a small hole in both ends of an egg. Wiggle a toothpick around inside to break the yolk so it all will blow out clean.
Create a cute bunny windsock for your outside trees or porch to twirl in the breeze.
If you're looking for a fun craft that all the family can do at Easter, then why not try decorating some eggs with eggshell mosaic. All you need to do is to save some eggshells after cooking, paint them and break the segments into lots of little pieces to make your mosaic designs.
It's time to get our Easter decorations out! Here is an easy bunny to make with your children or grandchildren. Lay washcloth like a diamond. Roll each half to the center making sure the "fuzzy" side of the washcloth is going to be on the outside.
This cute bunny bag can be used as a gift bag or table decor. Very inexpensive and easy to make! Fringe top of bag by making 2 inch long cuts about every 1/4 inch along top edge of flattened bag. Draw bunny teeth using black marker and white paper.
I like to Easter decorations that are simple and beautiful. I bought these three solid decorative eggs at an after-Easter sale; the pots were very inexpensive at a craft store.

Here's an easy Easter decoration. A straw hat decorated to look like a bunny.
As Easter is a comin', I have something that I do to get in the bunny mood. I remove the string that connects the eggs and put small slits with a knife on one side of the egg; enough to slip on mini lites. I use LED as they are not hot, but others I know have used the cheap mini lites and no problem so far. This is so pretty to put anywhere around your house. I put them around a big bouquet of flowers and it looks quite nice. Happy Easter decorating!

I am looking for a door decoration that is an Easter Bunny made with a straw hat and jumbo loopy chenille. It is made with loopy chenille that is wrapped around the top of the hat for it's face. Do you know where I can find this?
Create a cute bunny from a wooden spoon and insert it into a plant or bouquet of flowers at Easter.
Turn your plastic eggs into blooms. Create several for a unique table centerpiece.
A quick gift for that special teacher, aunt, or grandmother. You will need to make three fabric flowers; each uses two pieces of fabric and one piece of wire.
These are adorable hanging above a table from a light fixture. They are eggs with tiny scenes inside.
Fill a basket with these easy and pretty fabric-covered foam eggs. Cut fabric into half-inch wide strips. Vary the fabrics on each egg for an interesting look. Mix solids and prints as desired.
Have a go at making a cute pompom chick. All you need to make your chick is some card rings, yarn, scissors, and a few craft basics. What's more, you'll soon get hooked on making pompoms and will want to make a whole brood of chicks for your friends.
These bunny hats make cute door decorations for your home or office and can be assembled fairly quickly after the straw hat is painted. Instructions are for the white hat, but you can create a tan bunny by using tan spray paint, tan craft foam and brown chenille stems.
