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.
Bits and pieces of inexpensive craft items can be used to create an eye-catching Easter wreath for your front door.
Start by cutting out your cardboard in the shape of an egg. Cover with a piece of construction paper. You could use hot glue or elmer's. If you use elmer's you have to let it dry before you glue on your eggshells. Then hot glue on the yarn around the outside of the egg. . .
With some firm felt, paint, and ribbon, you can make multiple egg decorations all at the same time.
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!
Pinterest has many examples:
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~

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.
It's not too late to make this adorable bunny. It is quite easy and fun to do with the kids.
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.
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.
