Easter Box!

Easter boxJillian helped with an Easter Egg Hunt last weekend and they always have a craft time as well as an Easter Egg hunt.  They made little boxes to put jewelry or goodies into.  They look very similar to this box.

They are small wooden boxes that they first painted with colored paint, then after it had dried, they took a strip of felt and glued it to the rim of the box lid.  Then they each had some felt bunnies and chicks, as well as a variety of flowers to glue onto the top of each box.  They turned out so cute!

I love making Easter crafts!

This adorable bunny and directions can be found can be found over at Craftown.com.Bunny Wood Project

I’ve been looking for a cute bunny to put on my front door for Easter… and I only have a little over a week to make it! I better get on the ball!

They include the patterns and all the directions on how to make it. It looks like a fairly simple project. Hubby Frank has a lot of wood scraps around so he should be able to come up with enough wood for me.

I love the face on this bunny! I hope I’m able to duplicate it!

Hoppy Easter!

Easter Egg Wreath

Filed Under Easter Crafts, Plastic Eggs, Wreath | 2 Comments

My mom made this wreath at the Senior Center today for her apartment door. Didn’t she do a great job? They bought a whole bunch of different size plastic eggs, then hot glued them onto a straw wreath. They do crafts about once a month and always seem to come up with unique ideas.

  1. Prick egg at both ends with straight pin. Make the hole on the bottom a little larger.
  2. Blow the egg out.
  3. Wash off egg and dry.
  4. Put some glue on a paper plate.
  5. Divide the napkin into layers. Keep only the top decorated layer.
  6. Tear the napkin into about 2″ or smaller pieces.
  7. Sponge brush glue on part of the egg.
