Easter Ideas

I was meaning to do my Easter craft post a little earlier but I needed some words of inspiration last night instead.  I don't have a pinterest account I'm sure I would benefit from one when it comes to organising crafty ideas but I do have quite a few bookmark folders instead.  So on my internet travels I come across some great Easter ideas and I thought you might like some ideas too.

I just love beeswax candles and thought this beeswax egg tutorial is very appropriate for making for an Easter celebration.
I just love these bunny jars.  I was planning on making these for my girls and just putting a little bag of free trade eggs inside and then they can reuse them unfortunately they were discovered so I will have to come up with something else:(
These little bunny lolly pops are so cute.
Little egg pockets made of felt, ones made of paint chips and ones made with recycled brown paper would be great as little gifts for classmates. And cute little bunny bags to hand out just a few little treats.
I like these sweet little crochet eggs.  A big bowl of them would look lovely sitting on the table or with a little egg cup as a gift.
If you like felt then there is a great tutorial for felted eggs here. And these bakers twine eggs look very effective and so too these natural twine eggs.  I'm sure you could use hand blown eggs also instead of plastic eggs as a more environmental alternative.
Well I hope you like some of these Easter ideas and feel inspired maybe to try one.

Enjoy your day.

  2. I only realised yesterday that Easter is this weekend...I haven't even given any thought to Easter crafts yet.
    We've opted for a sugar free one this year so I think those jars will be the perfect little gift fill with knock knacks :)

  5. There are so many beautiful things to make ...shame Easter came so quickly this year...I have only really attempted a couple. Maybe some of these things will be better saved for next year for me. x

  8. These are so sweet! I decided a couple of days ago that I wanted to do something crafty for Easter but I think that perhaps I left my run just a little late, so I will save up ideas for next time around :)
