We usually celebrate Easter by having the first picnic of the season if weather permits. If its rainy we picnic inside. Hubs makes his famous fried chicken and I make my oh so yummy deviled eggs. We like to color eggs and give some small candy treats. Last year the girls were old enough to have our first hunt. All in all a pretty sweet time that I’m looking forward to doing again this year.
If you are getting excited about Easter too, and want to have some fun crafts/recipes to try, check these out.
Tara from Easy Makes Me Happy made these great looking crocheted and needle felted eggs. Very creative! There’s a crochet egg tutorial here and a needle felting tutorial so between the two you should be able to get hopping! (Sorry. Couldn’t help myself.)
If you’ve got a little boy in your life you might want to check out Jamie from Prudent Baby’s bow tie tutorial. Your little guy will look spiffy on Easter morn.
Nothing says Easter quite like hot cross buns. Perhaps you are like me and have never had this treat homemade or maybe you have a great recipe and make your own every year. Either way, you should check out Maria’s recipe at Scandi Food and see what you’ve been missing.
Over at Craft Passion, they’ve got a great pattern and tutorial for these adorable little bunny sachets. I love this kind of gift. Both cute and practical these bunnies can stick around long past Easter.
What would any Easter celebration be without a great Easter basket, or in this case bucket. Make your own adorable bunny bucket using Positively Splendid‘s tutorial and be extra happy to see those kiddos hunting Easter eggs.
If this still isn’t enough Easter crafty goodness for you, I saw Dana over at Made has a whole bunch of tutes, too. Hoppy Easter! (groan)
