Hump Day Round Up :: Easter Crafts!
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
Using Mathematica to Decorate Easter Eggs – if you are math minded (which I am not) this could be fun!
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:
A Basic Woven Basket How to on Basket Weaving 101
Quite a Few Free Basket Weaving Pattern on Basket Maker’s Catalog
And of course, many great crafts for bunny making (including the honey bunny pattern here on craft leftovers – and a kit in the CL shop):
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:
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:
