For about the last week or so I’ve seen more and more Easter themed crafts coming up in my RSS feed. It think it’s about time I share with you some of my favorite tutorials, project, and inspirations.

Painting Easter eggs has always been my favorite Easter craft and, rightly so, egg salad sandwiches my favorite Easter lunch!

There are so many ways to decorate Easter eggs and here are a few inspirations and tutorials:

Lacy Egg How-To – This is my favorite from the Martha Stewart ideas. I love the idea of using lace as a resist for dyeing and hope to try it out tonight.



Miy Easter Egg Craft – paper covered eggs

Easter Egg Decorating from AmazingMom’s.com

Using Mathematica to Decorate Easter Eggs – if you are math minded (which I am not) this could be fun!

Chiff.com give a great round up of egg decorating methods

Better Homes and Gardens give some ideas for decorating eggs when you are pinched for time

Martha has a huge group of projects for decorating eggs – oh of course she does… i hate and love you.

Easter Baskets are my next Favorite Easter Craft. Especially because just last Saturday I took a basket weaving class and seem to have an uncanny knack for it – I swear it’s like I remember things instead of learn them, it all seems so natural. I’ll post a picture on Kro Studio later today.

Some Great Easter Basket How To’s and inspirations:

Easter Bunny Cupcakes in a Box – not exactly craft, but so seriously cute I couldn’t not link up to them.

And more egg themed project ideas:

Petite Spring Nests and Fillable Fabric Eggs [both via whipup.net - can you tell they have been posting a lot of really great easter projects lately, haha, I love their site]

Easter trees – something new to me, but something I really like! I think I’m going to make a “spring tree” and use it to decorate our apartment for a little bit since I came to it so close to the holiday:
