Craft Roundup: Getting in Gear for Easter
Put fun twists on classic holiday decor and projects, like tie-dye eggs, eggshell tea lights, a DIY Easter basket tote – and even a recipe for rainbow slime!
With Easter just a week and a half away from today, there's still plenty of time left to make a flight of handmade gifts to share with your children or friends, items to decorate with – or simply new ideas for sprucing up your egg decorating approaches. The blogosphere is bursting with tons of fun, spring-approved ideas right now. Let this week's Make It be just the beginning of your inspiration for you and your family.
Now this is definitely upcyclying! Heidi from Hands Occupied takes empty eggshells and turns them into sweet tea lights that are perfect for the Easter dinner table.
Believe it or not, paper towels help create this psychedelic Easter egg effect over at The Nerd's Wife blog.
Looking for a non-candy alternative for Easter baskets? Why not offer up a basket full of rainbow slime from Learn ~ Play ~ Imagine? (Well, not in the actual basket, of course – but it's a perfect surprise to tuck in a plastic egg.)
Easter baskets don't have to be wicker, plastic or even a familiar cartoon character. Look to the fabric aisle at your local craft store for colorful inspiration – and try this soft basket tote from Michele of The Scrap Shoppe blog for The Ribbon Retreat.
