Spring Into Making Easy Easter Crafts
There’s nothing quite like the beauty of spring and enjoying the Easter season with loved ones! This year, we’re sharing a few ways you could bring the magic of spring to your interior decorations this Easter.
Egg tea lights
- Eggshells – empty and boiled for a few minutes to ensure they’re clean
- Egg carton
- Tabbed candle wicks
- Glue gun
- Wax flakes
- A pan (this will get wax on, so an old one is best)
- Any decorations you’d like to include
Place your clean eggshells into alternate holes in the egg carton. Using the glue gun, carefully stick the candle wicks into the base of each shell. Trim any excess wick with scissors.
Melt the wax flakes in the pan and allow to cool very slightly so that it doesn’t crack the eggshell. Carefully pour into each shell about the wick, up to around halfway up. Allow to set completely.
Decorate the egg spaces with seasonal items such as spring flowers, empty quail eggs or craft eggs, pine cones etc.
This can now be placed on your mantelpiece or as a centrepiece at your Easter table.
- Metal pitcher
- Small branches from budding trees, or fallen twigs
- Eggs – you can either decorate your own shells or purchase eggs from a bargain/craft shop
- Glue gun
Add your branches to the pitcher and decorate around the base with foliage.
Cut the ribbon into 15cm strips, fold in half and, using the glue gun, carefully fix the two cut ends to the top of the decorated/craft egg. Allow to set completely.
Hang the eggs around your branches and place on your window sill for all to enjoy.
- Cloth napkin
- Decorated egg
Roll your napkin lengthways to make a loose cylinder shape.
Wrap this around the decorated egg and pull the ends together around the top. Place a sprig of gypsophila between the join and then tie with twine.
Loosen the ends of the napkin slightly to make them a little more open at the top.
Invite some friends or family members round for an Easter feast, and place these at the side of each of the place settings. Remember, the egg isn’t tied securely so be very careful when moving it.
