Paper Maché Easter Eggs for Colorful Holidays

Now that the sun is coming out a little more an the spring flowers are just starting to peek through as the snow melts, I’m already basically in the full swing of Easter!

There’s just something so cheerful and celebratory about this particular holiday that gets me excited for celebrating a new season that’s full of colour and life. On top of that, my kids absolutely love the whole concept of the Easter bunny and going on egg hunts! That’s why I’m always trying to come up with cute Easter egg based crafts around this time of year that we can make together.

I always get bonus points from them for projects that involve as much colour as possible, since they’re total brightness lovers who will take just about any chance for creativity as an opportunity to make rainbows. That’s how these super colourful little paper maché eggs came to be.



I’m the kind of crafter who has always adored following other people’s crafting tutorials but I also really get a kick out of making tutorials of my own so other DY enthusiasts can follow along if they want to try their hand at what I’ve made.

These brightly coloured tissue paper eggs were no exception since I had every opportunity in the world to document the process because my kids found them so fun to do and made so many. Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos!

If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.

For this project, you’ll need:

Step 1:

Gather your materials!


Step 2:

Start with one colour of tissue paper (I started with blue) and turn it portrait-wise so the longer edges are at the sides and the shorter edges are at the bottom and bottom. Use your scissors to cut a strip from the righthand side that is about half an inch wide and the full height of the page, from top to bottom. Now, cut this strip into little squares. I tried to make mine as evenly sized as possible, but you don’t actually have to measure them to be precise. My squares were about half an inch tall each to match the width of the strip I cut them from. Brush these squares aside for the moment to be used later.


Step 3:

Repeat this strip and square cutting process with each of your colours of tissue paper! I used six colours in total- blue, green, yellow, orange, red, and pink- but you can use less, more, or different shades if you prefer. Scoop each pile of coloured tissue paper squares aside for the moment while you work on the next sheet until you’ve got squares in every colour.


Step 4:

Now you’ll cover the whole surface of your paper maché egg in tissue paper squares! The goal is to scatter, overlap, and alternate them to get a cool and eclectic rainbow effect, so feel free to choose your colours at random however you think looks best. First, apply some glue to the surface of your egg with your paintbrush, putting down enough to make the tissue paper stick well but not so much that it’s gooey; you want to work in thin layers.

Stick a tissue paper square where you just applied glue, positioning it however you please; the direction isn’t really important, so don’t feel like you have to make things look straight and even. In fact, I think it actually looks better if they’re a little wonky! Once you’re happy with how your square sits, use your paintbrush to apply more glue over the whole square, saturating it just a little and really pasting it into place. Make sure the square’s edges are all stuck down smoothly all the way around.






Step 5:

Repeat this gluing, sticking, and pasting process with a second square. Feel free to overlap, change colours, and alternate directions how you please! Remember the goal is to make the egg look scattered, fun, and creative. You can also use a square in the same colour to create larger patches in that shade if you like, which is how I started out. This gave me an almost striped effect!



Step 6:

Keep on with this gluing, sticking, and pasting process until your entire egg is covered in colourful squares! The goal is to overlap your pieces so that the entire egg is covered with no white spaces peering through. Feel free to go back and layered more pieces over if you catch a spot that you think needs more colour. You can also add more glue in places that have loose edges or are too dry to stuck smoothly and look like they might peel. Once you’re satisfied with the coverage and look of your egg, set the whole thing aside to dry.



Once your paper maché and tissue egg is dry, it’s ready to display! Make several and pile them in baskets or scatter them around the dinner table, mantel, and side table when you have company over on Easter.

DIY Easter Bunny Party Hat to Celebrate

In my house, literally any holiday is a great excuse for the kids to play a little bit of dress-up! If I’m being totally honest, they don’t actually even need an excuse, but things are always a little extra fun when there’s a seasonal theme to work within their regular, rather crafty costuming endeavors.

That’s why I love coming up with ways to help them make their own pieces to celebrate different holidays, changes in season, and so on, and Easter is no exception.

One of my children actually has a birthday just before Easter arrives and making all kinds of fun things for the party, including birthday hats, got us all talking about how much fun it would be if there was a funny party hat to wear for every occasion. That’s how these adorable little Easter bunny-themed party hats came to be!



Naturally, I knew I just had to document the process of making these the moment I finished the first one and saw how much my kids loved it. That’s why I decided to create a tutorial for other crafters to follow along with when the kids started begging me to make more! Now we’ve made enough for everyone who will be coming to our Easter dinner.

Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.



For this project, you’ll need:

Step 1:

Gather your materials!


Step 2:

First, turn your piece of pink cardstock landscape-wise so its long edges are the top and bottom and its short edges are the sides. Now, cut a piece of yarn that’s the same length as the long edge of your pink card page. Fold it in half so the two ends meet evenly and a loop form at the string’s halfway point. Hold those two ends tightly together, hold your pencil in your other hand and place it in the looped end, and stretch the yarn straight and taught between your hands.

Now, place the tip of your pencil in the top lefthand corner of your pink page and use your thumb to pin the yarn ends at the centre point along the page’s top edge (which should measure halfway between the corners). Carefully arc your pencil downwards, across the page in an arcing motion, and back up to the opposite corner; the tension and control of the piece of yarn will help you draw a well-measured and even semi-circle.




Step 3:

Cut the pink semi-circle out along the pencil line you just drew across your cardstock. This will be the base of your actual hat.

Step 4:

Holding your pink semi-circle so that the straight edge is at the top and the rounded edge is at the bottom, curl the corners towrds yourself, in towards each other, and down so that they meet up even with each other and the rounded edge at the bottom and make an open point at the top.

Then pass one corner over the other and start overlapping them, pulling one corner further along the bottom edge on the inside and one on the outside. This will close the opening in the top and make an actual point, while the bottom becomes a circular opening.

You now have a plain pink cone shaped party hat! Use your glue stick to apply glue to the outer corner and up its vertical edge to keep the cone shaped hat curled into place properly. Set it aside for a moment.




Step 5:

On your piece of white paper, draw the shape of a rabbit ear with a narrow, flat bottom edge and tall sides that widen towards a rounded top. Draw a second ear the same side. Now, take your piece of pink and white checkered paper and draw two more ears that are the same shape as your white ones, but this time smaller. These will layer on top of the first ones to make the pink inner ear of your Easter bunny. Finally, draw a heart shape about half an inch tall by half an inch wide on your pink and white checkered paper as well. Cut all of these shapes out.




Step 6:

From one of the short edges of your purple paper, cut two very thin strips from bottom to top, less than a centimetre wide each. Curl the ends of each strip by holding the paper tight between your fingers on one hand about an inch from the end and running your thumb nail down towards the tip, pressing hard enough to get the effect but not so hard that you just rip the end of the strip off. These two curled strips will be your Easter bunny’s whiskers!



Step 7:

Pick a central spot to anchor your Easter bunny’s face around and use your glue stick to apply a dot of glue there. Stick your whiskers down at their central point, crossing them slightly over each other like a small X so the curled ends stick out at cute angles on each side. Then stick your heart shaped nose down right on top of that central point where the whiskers overlap.


Step 8:

Apply glue to the backs of your pink and white checked inner ear pieces and stick them down in the centre of your larger white ear pieces, so the white peeks out around the pink edges like a border. Then curl the bottom corners of each newly layered ear in towards each other to make a point kind of like you did earlier with the pink hat, gluing them into place overlapping on each one. Your ears now have pointed bottoms instead of flat bottom edges.




Step 9:

Turn your pink hat around so you’re looking at the back, on the side with the seam opposite to where you just glued your nose and whiskers down. Apply a decently sized patch of glue closer to the top of the hat, just above the halfway point in its height. Glue your ears down here by sticking the front of each curled bottom into the glue with the pink inner ears facing the other direction, away from you and towards the other side of the hat. Angle them slightly diagonally so that they stick out the other side at a cute angle, like the bunny is very happy indeed.




Step 10:

Turn the hat back around and then apply glue to the backs of your googly eyes and stick them down above the nose but below the ears.



Step 11:

Starting at the tip of the heart shaped nose and drawing downwards to then curve outwards, use your black marker to draw the rabbit’s mouth, like a smile.


Step 12:

Cut a piece of elastic string that’s however long it needs to be to loop from the side of your child’s head (or your own, if you’re getting in on the fun too), down underneath their chin, and back up the other side to about their temple. Then turn the Easter bunny hat over so you can see inside the cone and apply glue on each side, about an inch or so higher than the circular bottom edge. Stick the two ends of your elastic string down there so it arcs downwards and can fit over a face easily but without being too loose.


Your Easter bunny party hat is officially ready to wear! Of course, you can feel free to play with colours, details, and embellishments if the pastel theme I opted for isn’t quite spring-like or bright enough for your tastes.


Just in case you’d like to try this project out for yourself, here’s a fantastic tutorial video to help you!

There is no special recipe for the cake itself. You can choose to make a homemade cake or use a box mix (any flavor you want).

The icing flavor is up to you as well. You will need to purchase several colors of Peeps and a bag of plain Easter M&M’s.

If you do not want to use plain M&M’s, you could try Whopper’s miniature Robin Eggs candy.

Irresistible Treats: Yummy Fudge Recipes to Make This Easter and Beyond!

When it comes to making treats for Easter, fudge is a long standing family tradition. It doesn’t necessarily have to be springtime flavored or Easter themed, per se; making fudge around this time of year is simply what people do where we’re from! That’s why we always spent the beginning of spring with our eyes peeled for all kinds of awesome and unique fudge recipes that we’ve never tried before and might wow our families with.

Just in case you love the idea of making springtime fudge just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the best recipes that we’ve come across so far in this year’s search for new kinds!

1. Cardamom cashew fudge


Just in case you’re as into the idea of making sweet fudge from seemingly savoury ingredients as we are, here’s a recipe that we’d never even heard of before until we stumbled across it by accident on Happy Go Marni! Their tutorial teaches you how to make a cardamom cashew fudge that’s just as sweet as any other kind but also full of a particularly different and unique flavour!

2. Purple yam fudge


That’s right, there’s such a thing as purple fudge! The best part is that it’s naturally coloured rather than being made purple by food colouring, so you can even feel a little bit healthier about eating it than you might otherwise. Goddess of Scrumptiousness is here to show you how the stunning colour comes from being made with yams, but how the flavour is still just as sweet and delicious as ever, losing none of its “treat” quality by being made with a vegetable.

3. Chocolate bacon fudge


Are you the kind of person who adores your sweets most when they’re a little salty too? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how I Sing In the Kitchen made this fantastic chocolate bacon fudge that’s so decadent you’ll hardly believe you made it yourself rather than getting it at some kind of speciality or gourmet store.

4. Pumpkin pie fudge


Perhaps, like us, you’re the kind of DIY enthusiast who loves to collect seasonal ideas for any holiday all year round, rather than just sticking to whatever the current season is, just to make sure you always have something saved to keep you busy? That’s why we’ve got a pumpkin pie flavoured recipe snuck quietly onto our springtime fudge list. Big thanks goes to The Cultural Dish for this one!

5. Chocolate cheese fudge


Yes, you really did read that right; this deliciously sweet chocolate fudge is actually made with cheese! Just like the fudge made with yams, however, you’d never be able to tell that one of the prime ingredients in your treat is something that isn’t actually really sweet at all before it’s prepared. Finding Zest shows you how to make it happen to get a fudge with a particularly delightful texture.

6. Cute peanut butter chocolate “tree ring” fudge


What if you’re the kind of kitchen creative who likes to play with the flavours of the things you make but also with how nicely they can be presented and made to look as well? In that case, we think you just might be the perfect person to give this peanut butter chocolate tree ring fudge from Handmade Charlotte a try! Their tutorial shows you how to carefully roll and texture the fudge until it looks just like the stump of a tree.

7. Rocky road fudge


Now, you’ve probably heard of rocky road ice cream before but have you ever heard of rocky road fudge? We hadn’t either until we came across this recipe from Ashlee Marie but, my goodness, are we ever glad we know about it now! Their tutorial shows you how to perfectly blend the chocolate, nuts, and marshmallow just right.

8. Unicorn fudge with sprinkles


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about prioritizing how your fudge looks pretty highly along with how it tastes but you had something a little more whimsical in mind? In that case, we have a sneaking suspicion that you’ll get along much better indeed with this fantastic unicorn fudge outlined step by pretty pink step on Kara’s Party Ideas! We love the way they topped it with all kinds of fantastically shiny sprinkles to really make it look like fun.

9. Watermelon fudge


Speaking of fudge recipes that really do look just as good as they taste, here’s a fantastic idea from Yoyomax12 that’s perfect for spring and summer because it looks just like one of the best fruits of the season! Check out their tutorial to see how they made this fantastic watermelon fudge that’s just about as bright as the real thing and manages to taste like it too, despite being so much sweeter.

10. Raw red velvet fudge


Have we really caught your attention with all this talk of decadent, rich tasting fudge recipes that taste really great despite the fact that they’re made with slightly healthier ingredients than some of your more classic recipes might be? In that case, we have a feeling you’re going to get a real kick out of the way Desserts With Benefits made a wonderfully sweet and rich red velvet fudge that’s made entirely of organic raw ingredients!

11. Cake batter and sprinkles fudge


Did you get a real kick out of how bright and colourful the unicorn fudge was because you know it’ll be a huge hit with your kids and now you can’t help wondering what other kinds of rainbow, sprinkle clad fudge recipes there are out there for you to try together that they can help you decorate? Then we’re pretty sure this cake batter flavoured rainbow sprinkle fudge outlined step by step on Ashlee Marie might be right up your alley!

12. Easy candy cane fudge


Once again, we know we’re sneaking recipes onto this springtime tradition fudge list that are definitely intended for other times of year, but what’s the point in sticking to seasonal things if it means you have to miss out on some of your favourite flavours during the rest of the year? We adore the minty freshness of this easy candy can fudge from DIY Candy and we’d absolutely make it any time we please!

13. Orange creamsicle fudge


Just in case we really caught your attention with the idea of making fudge that tastes a little bit like fruit, here’s another idea for the citrus lovers in the room! We’re completely in love with the way Bru Crew Life outlines this orange creamsicle flavoured fudge because it really does taste like oranges, only a little creamier, just like the delicious ice cream treat it’s actually meant to emulate.

14. Cotton candy fudge


Are you actually still thinking about how much you loved the idea of the brightly coloured and liberally sprinkled unicorn fudge and now you’re feeling intent on adding more borderline obnoxious looking and super fun flavoured recipes to your springtime fudge list? Then we think you simply must take a look at the way Tastemade created this swirling blue and pink sprinkled fudge that tastes and smells just like cotton candy!

15. Pineapple fudge


Here’s another recipe that we’d never heard of before and didn’t know we needed until we came across it by accident, but that taste so darn good we have no idea how we ever lived without it! If you’re a fellow fruit lover, take a look at how Mom on Time Out made this intensely flavourful pineapple fudge that also smells just about as good as it tastes.

Hunting for Something Fun and Homemade: Easter Kids Crafts

When it comes to springtime, we find that we have to keep all kinds of awesome crafting ideas on hands at all times because the weather is so unpredictable! Sure, we might send the kids outside to play in the sun and a warm breeze one morning, but it could be pouring rain where we live by the afternoon, which means that we find we have lots of crafting time in the spring. That’s why we always keep Easter crafts on hand around this time of year!

Just in case you love the idea of having lots of Easter themed kids’ crafting options on hand this spring just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the cutest and funnest ideas and tutorials we’ve come across so far in our bookmarking adventures.

1. Toilet paper roll Easter bunnies


Toilet paper rolls are the kind of classic craft that never gets old or tired! Even as adults, we’re always marvelling at just how many things you can transform them into. Our kids love them even more than we do, so we’re sure you can probably imagine how much of a hit these cute little toilet roll bunnies from The Craft Train were in our house.

2. Paper plate mother hen


Just in case you’ve got your place already scattered with bright Easter eggs and bunnies and now you need some other springtime creatures, here’s a lovely mother hen craft from Goody Foodies that will make it look like that’s who’s been laying all your eggs! Their tutorial shows you how to make one of your own out of a paper plate.

3. Yarn egg Easter wreath


If you’re going to put in the time and effort it takes to make an Easter craft from scratch with your kids this afternoon, would you rather work together to make something decorative so you can easily put it on display after? Then we have a feeling you’ll get along quite will indeed with the way While He Was Napping did a bit of yarn wrapping to make an Easter egg door wreath!

4.  Paper plate Easter bunny basket


Perhaps you really enjoyed the idea of making an Easter craft out of paper plates because you love upcycling crafts and you happen to have some of those already on hand? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at the way Fab Art DIY made this lovely little paper plate Easter bunny that has a basket opening for Easter egg hunting in the back!

5. Paper and handprint Easter chick


Just in case your kids are really hands-on craft lovers just like ours are,  here’s an idea that will let them get a little messier with their artistic process on a boring rainy afternoon. Take a look at the tutorial on Fun Handprint Art to see how these super fun little construction paper and painted handprint chicks were made!

6. Easter bunny eggs


Have you actually been specifically on the lookout for springtime and Easter crafts that let you use actual hardboiled eggs because your kids are still obsessed with that idea from the time you dyed eggs together but you’re looking for other egg techniques just to keep things interesting? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Little Red Window made these funny Easter bunny eggs using foam paper and markers.

7. Lace doily Easter eggs


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about dying and decorating eggs but you’re convinced that your kids are still just a bit too young to be working with dye? Then we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how A Little Pinch of Perfect made these wonderfully decorative paper eggs using paper lace doilies and felt tip pens.

8. Q-tip lamb


Just in case you’re still looking for springtime and Easter crafts that will help your kids make something other than the classic seasonal bunnies, here’s a lovely tutorial from One Little Project! They teach you step by step how to make a little lamb using clothespins, cotton swabs, and a bit of paper.

9. Popsicle stick chicks


Just in case we caught your attention with the idea of using common crafting supplies that you probably already have at home but you don’t happen to have any paper plates lying around, here’s an awesome alternative! Crafty Morning shows you how to make cute little googly-eyed chicks out of crafting or popsicle sticks.

10. Tissue paper Easter egg sun catchers


Sun catchers are the kind of awesome craft that we love to make all year round in all different seasonal or holiday shapes and designs, and Easter time is no different! We’re in love with the way Kids Craft Room made these fantastic Easter egg shaped sun catchers using shredded strips of colourful tissue paper.

11. Sparkly chick and bunny candy jars


Are you actually still thinking of ways that you can make decorative piece crafts but you’re feeling pretty intrigued by the idea of upcycling old things into new pieces too? Then grab the nearest empty jam jars from your recycling box and take a look at how Crazy Little Projects used glitter and foam paper to make theirs into Easter chicks and bunnies!

12. Easy yarn wrapped Easter eggs


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about yarn wrapping techniques and Easter eggs in one place but you’re not sure the glue drying technique you saw in the earlier wreath is quite right for your little ones unless you want a huge mess on your hands? In that case, we’d suggest taking a look at this simpler cardboard and yarn wrapped egg idea from Craft Create Cook!

13.  Bubble wrap Easter sheep


Here’s another idea for your list of other Easter animals and things made from unconventional materials! We’re completely in love with the way Crafty Morning outlines step by step how they made these adorable little painted bubble wrap sheep. Our kids adore bubble wrap and sat popping their bubbles for ten minutes before even starting the craft.

14. Illustrated tinfoil Easter eggs


Are you a little bit pressed for time and supplies right now but you also know that your kids have been feeling restless today and would really like to do some crafting this afternoon? Then we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how I Heart Crafty Things made these super fun decorated Easter eggs simply by using Sharpies to draw on tinfoil!

15. Salt dough Easter egg ornaments


Maybe your kids are a little bit older and feeling slightly more hands-on and they’d really rather make something right from scratch, creating an entire decor piece themselves? Then we think this fantastic painted salt dough Easter ornament idea outlined step by simply step on Design Mom might be right up your alley!

Early, Fun and Festive Treats: 15 Delicious Easter School Lunch Ideas

It’s not everyday that there’s a holiday coming closer that lets us get crafty and themed with the food we make our kids. Every chance we get, however, we love to make their school lunches a little more fun than usual so that they actually enjoy doing things like eating their fruits and vegetables! That’s why, now that springtime is here, we’ve been on the hunt for cute ways to incorporate Easter bunnies and spring animals into their lunchtime routine in unique ways.

Just in case you love the idea of making fun Easter themed school lunches for your kids just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas we’ve come across so far in our search!

1. Easter lunch with cheese chicks


Are your kids absolute cheese lovers more than just about anything else? Well, ours certainly are, so this fantastic lunch from Bento School Lunches that turns their sandwich and snack cheese into a pair of little Easter chicks caught our attention right away! A bit of creative cutting as far as mini carrots and the crust of the sandwich are involved and you’re all set.

2. Easter carrot sandwiches


Perhaps you loved the idea of making a shaped sandwich with the cheese on top because you think your kids would be even more excited to eat their lunch’s main course if it was shaped like something fun? Then we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Meet The Dubiens made these funny little cheese and spinach ham sandwiches into carrots for an Easter bunny.

3.  Carrot sandwich and Easter salad with decorated hard boiled egg


Maybe you’d actually love to find a cute themed lunch box idea that your kids can actually help you make? In that case, we think you’ll feel very intrigued indeed by the way Murul made their kids a bright, spring-like lunch with a salad, a carrot shaped finger sandwich, and some Easter colour snacks and then used wax techniques to let their kids decorate their own hard boiled eggs!

4. Spring lamb bento lunch


Just in case you’re still totally enamoured with the idea of making adorably shaped finger sandwiches cut to look like all different things but you can’t help wondering whether your little ones might prefer springtime creatures, since they’re such animal lovers, here’s an awesome alternative from Eclectic Lamb!

5. Bunny bum bento box


Maybe you’ve actually been looking for Easter themed lunch box ideas specifically because, even when it’s not springtime, your kids are just completely obsessed with bunnies? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at the way Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons made this fully bunny themed lunch from the eggs right down to the funny little sandwich.

6. Bunny sandwich and chick hardboiled egg with carrots


Have you actually really liked several of the ideas you’ve seen so far but you’re just not sure which one your kids would like best of all? Well, who ever said you have to choose between, say, Easter bunnies and springtime chicks? We’re personally huge fans of the way Lunch Box Awesome included both in their lunch by making a bunny rabbit shaped sandwich and a half hatched hardboiled egg that looks just like a little chick.

7. Lamb sandwich and egg chick


Did you actually really like the little lamb sandwich ideas but your kids are bigger eaters and you think they’re going to need a bit more sandwich than that along with their other snacks to get them through the rest of the school day after lunch? Then you should definitely take a look at the way Super Healthy Kids made a larger sheep sandwich instead!

8. Easter bunny cutout sandwich and veggies


Are you actually a little more pressed for time and, even though you’ve picked up some cute treats to include in the lunch itself, you’re just not sure you’ll have time for things like cutting sandwiches into custom shapes? In that case, we think you’ll get along a little better with the way Made for School created a bunny shape in their bread like a cut-out instead! It’s shockingly easy to do.

9.  Baby chick sandwich


We’ve already shown you how to make a number of adorable Easter chick shaped snack foods but, like with the bunnies, we understand that some kids have bigger appetites and might need more of a full sized sandwich to get them through the day better. That’s why we liked this tutorial from Cute Food for Kids that teaches you how to make a hatching chick shaped sandwich without really losing most of the lunch.

10. Easter egg flatbread pizza lunch

– egg molds ;
– cooking spray;
– clean syringe and bowls.VIEW IN GALLERYJelly-Easter-Eggs-wonderfuldiy1


1. Take one bowl for each gelatin color and put the powder in each one separately.
2. Stir 1.25 cups boiling water into each flavor until completely dissolved (it should take around 2 minutes).
Don’t forget to take just one at a time.
3 .Take the syringe and fill it with the first color and fill the molds with a layer that should be around 1/4” – 1/2” thick.
4. Put it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes , just till they are firm enough so the next colour layer won’t run into the one below. and repeat the process for the other layers the same way. The rest of the flavors, until they are used, should stay at room temperature, lightly covered.
5. Once filled to the top, please in fridge to set completely! It will take at least 4 hours and before taking the eggs out put the mold in warm water, the gelatin will loosen a little and this way you can umold easier.

Happy Easter!

Bright and Bonny Easter Bunny Gift Bottles

Anytime of the year is a great time to plan ahead for next Easter – especially with a craft project that’s as amazingly fun and simple as this! There isn’t a kid in the world that can resist the allure of the Easter bunny or a generous dose of candy, so why not combine the two together with these gorgeous DIY Easter bunny gift bottles?

And when we say it’s simple we really mean it – all you need is an empty water bottle, a cupcake liner and a little added dash of imagination!

We just love a project that transforms household waste into something truly wonderful! Chances are that once you’ve knocked together a few of these, you might find yourself never throwing out a plastic bottle again! They’re of course just the ticket for Easter, but that doesn’t mean they don’t also make awesome gifts and craft projects for kids at any time of the year!

Perfect Projects for Kids

These are just the kinds of goodies that never fail to light up a kid’s face when they first lay eyes on them, but at the same time we highly recommend getting your own kids involved in the process. There’s a bit of cutting and sticking involved of course, but most of it is all about simple creativity and decorative touches. And if you let the kids pick their own favorite candy to go inside, chances are they’ll be even more impressed with the results!

So next Easter, why not give a gift that’s not only fabulous, but also brilliantly unique and exceptionally eco-friendly too? Of course, the fact that they’ll also save you a fortune on the usual store-bought gifts is a sweet-as-candy bonus too!

Get started today and you could have yourself a whole army of bunnies by the time Easter rolls around!

Wonderful DIY Easter String Egg / Basket

VIEW IN GALLERYEaster String Egg-wonderfuldiy

Easter was coming up soon so it’s time to do some really projects with the kids for it. This string egg is a really neat idea involving balloons. I thought that would be a really fun idea for the kids.
What you need to do is putting crepe paper over the balloon. Then let it dry, pop the balloon and make a small opening on the side so you can add some Easter grass , a bunny or anything else . You can make a bunny home to hang on the front porch. It is really easy to make and turn out so cute.

What you will need:
• a large balloon;
• some white glue;
• a can spray of hair fixative;
• a pair of scissors;
• some glitter;
• a brush;
• a roll of crochet string;
• some green crepe paper or cellophane;
• a small round box. photo source:Artesanatorevistasmoldesdicas
