What makes this unusual knit item so special isn’t just its handmade and vintage status. It’s a nice reminder about the value of handmade gifts – even ones as random as a chicken-shaped egg cozy!
This last minute Easter egg garland is super simple, festive, and adorable! It takes just a few minutes to make and only a handful of supplies. In past years I haven’t done too many Easter DIY projects, but I’m so glad I changed my habits this year. The trends are especially colorful and cute this season, I think that’s what got me so inspired!
I just don’t have enough springy jewelry in my wardrobe, and this subtle, colorful bracelet makes me think of something I’d find at an indie craft fair or an indie online shop. You know, a bold piece you don’t see a gillion variations of walking down the street. And that’s just my style!
I feel like Ms. Frizzle would 100% wear these earrings given half a chance. They’re about as festive as it gets, and they involve ribbon and sparkle. I’m a huge DIY accessory lover, and part of what I love is making accessories you might not find in stores. These, admittedly are totally cray, but for something I’ll wear for fun to an Easter brunch or egg hunt? Heck yes I’m going to hang a couple of sparkle Easter eggs on my ears! Maybe I’ll even pair them with my astro turf Peter Pan collar…
All right! It’s finally Easter crafts time on Hands Occupied! I’m starting things off with an easy (and a little adorable) tea light candle DIY. These sweet little dudes are made with eggshells and a combo of scrap wax from old candles and soy wax flakes. They’re a great way to recycle household items, and they are the perfect Easter table accent. Bonus: they don’t take long to make.
Make a fun peter pan collar to celebrate spring!
My first attempt at working with felt – pretty cute, I think!
