These Easter eggs are very easy to make.

Supplies

All you need is:

Directions:

  1. Start by cutting out your cardboard in the shape of an egg.
  2. 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.
  3. Then hot glue on the yarn around the outside of the egg. You have to do a little at a time because the glue dries so quickly. Hot glue on the small piece of yarn to the back of your egg for the hanger.
  4. Then you can make a design on the front of your egg. Smear a little Elmer's glue on the front of your egg and glue on the eggshells. You don't have to cover the egg entirely with the shells. Make sure to let some spaces in between the eggshells so it looks like mosaic tile.

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!

Bits and pieces of inexpensive craft items can be used to create an eye-catching Easter wreath for your front door.

Approximate Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Draw and cut a wreath shape from cardboard. I used the side of a cardboard box. Spread glue over the surface of the wreath shape and press cellophane grass or shredded paper into the glue. The circle I started with to make the wreath measured 13 inches across, and I cut a 6 1/4 inch circle from the middle to make the hole.
  2. Cut 3 inch circles from scraps of craft foam. I used decorative edging shears to cut these, but any scissors will work.
  3. Glue half of a colored egg to the center of each circle to create your hat shape and decorate your hat shapes with craft odds and ends.
  4. Glue the little hats around the surface of your wreath, leaving space for the bow.
  5. Make a large ribbon bow and glue it to the wreath. I used 3 yards of wide, wired ribbon to make mine, but you can use what you have on hand or use a pre-made bow.
  6. Make a loop from a piece of string or yarn and glue one end of the loop to the back of the wreath to make a hanger.

This craft makes a lovely Easter and spring decoration for your front door.

Items you will need:

Instructions:

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~

Hugs,

Blooming Bonnets. Last summer just after Easter I purchased a dozen little straw hats just the size for dolls from a sale rack. They were just drab straw colored so I decided to paint them.

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.

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.

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.
