I know Easter is over but my family and I had so much fun baking and crafting this Easter. I decided we should tackle some of the cute ideas I had pinned to my Easter Board on Pinterest because you know, if you are pinning but not doing, then you are just digitally hoarding. So, we tackled not one, not two, but five Pinterest ideas. The funny thing was I wasn’t the only one in the family having a Pinteresting Easter. When the family got together for Easter dinner we were all laughing because almost every one of us had brought a new recipe they found on Pinterest.
Over the next five posts, I’ll show you the original pin and then the version that we made. I think our creations came out pretty good but my photography skills leave A LOT to be desired so you’ll just have to come over the next time we’re crafting and admire our work in person.
First up, we made a DIY Easter Egg Bouquet to give as a gift to Grandma. The idea came from a pin I saw from the Ms-notsoperfect.com blog. She made a super cute “floral bouquet” using plastic Easter eggs. It looked easy to make and it definitely was. My daughter and I finished it up in 30 minutes. Click over to her site to see the directions.
I made one modification and added a green styrofoam floral cone to the inside of the vase to stick the skewers in. That way they were secure and not bouncing around when you carried the vase. I got all of the supplies at my local craft store but I could only find the wooden skewers at Target or the grocery store.
So, below you can see her version first and then our version. We did pretty good, right?
Next up will be Mustachioed Easter Eggs.
Did you do any craft projects with your kids this Easter? What did you make?
