4 Easy Easter Crafts for Spring
1. Craft Stick Carrots
This Easter craft idea comes from Easy Peasy and Fun. Using craft sticks, green Easter grass, craft paint, paper, and glue, you can make fun carrots! Follow the link for full instructions with pictures, but this craft is very easy. And it makes for great decoration.
Parental supervision is needed for this project, since it does involve scissors. Hot glue can be used, but school glue is safer and works just as well.
2. Marble Easter Eggs
Better Homes & Gardens has a great way to switch up your Easter egg decorations. By using vinegar and vegetable oil, you can create a marble effect on your eggs. This process is quite straightforward, but the link above will give you a full tutorial.
The best part of this Easter craft? You probably have all the supplies on hand!
3. Bunny Easter Basket
Do you have an old apple basket lying around? From personal experience, it seems a lot of people save these for a rainy day and forget about them. But now you can use a few tricks to turn your old apple baskets into fun Easter crafts!
My Sister’s Suitcase has a great method for converting apple baskets to bunny baskets. The process is painless but requires a couple special crafting tools like adhesive vinyl and a pom pom maker. Both can be ordered online or picked up in any craft store.
4. Easter Egg Mason Jars
Pretty pastels will never be boring. Take the color palette and use it to repurpose some mason jars! This idea is really simple and you can find a full tutorial here. But we’ll sum up the basics for you.
