Easter weekend is finally upon us! And once again, the craft blog world did NOT disappoint. The decoupage bunny eggs and doodle eggs above are particular faves of mine from this whole Easter season. I wonder what will inspire the world’s DIYers next month? Mother’s Day? Spring gardening? I can’t wait to see what everyone posts next week!
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!
At least in my neighborhood, twist ties are super hard to find!* And sometimes a DIY chick really just needs a couple of frigging twist ties to do her project right now. Such was the position I found myself in last week when it came time to do a final Easter project shoot (tune in Wednesday, btw), so I had to get creative. That’s when washi tape and craft wire from my stash came in very handy!
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!
Yesterday’s post was super long, so I’ll keep it short today! Easter crafting season continues to aww and inspire. That is all.
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…
These fun little knitting needle pouches can also be used as a pencil case or, of course, as a crochet hook case. Sometimes sewing offers a fun distraction to all of the knitting and crochet I spend my time doing. It’s a fun exercise taking something larger and sculpting it into something smaller, whereas knitting and crochet have you taking a string and building it into something larger. Maybe not everyone thinks of sewing vs. knitting/crochet like this, but it’s how my brain works. :)
