It’s almost here and I thought I’d share some wonderful Easter Crafts that you can make at home instead of breaking the bank and buying.
Need some last minute ideas that won’t leave you seeing red in your checkbook. Check out what Deborah Taylor-Hough wrote in The Simple Mom about Frugal Easter Basket Ideas. I’m loving the idea of using homemade cookies and candies.
Want to use some fabulous natural egg dyes. Then check out what Better Homes and Gardens have to recommend HERE.
Go the extra step and make some fabric eggs that you can hide treasures in.
One Inch World gives you the pattern and instructions to make these fillable soft eggs HERE. Just think of the tiny treasure they can hold. And unlike plastic – they will last a lot longer and can be re-used year after year.
Can’t find your old baskets or forgot to purchase them at after Easter Clearance sales last year – then pull out your fabric scraps and try your hand at these charming basket.
Need something a bit quicker. Decorate an old ice cream bucket, flower pot, sand pail, or even an upside down Easter bonnet for holding your basket goodies.
Or try decorating old food or coffee can’s like BH&G did HERE.
Happy Crafting Holiday!
