I know there is ONLY one week until Easter, but perhaps you will have some time this week to set aside and make a little something fun for the holiday. Here are 5 DIY Easter projects to consider.
Natural Easter Egg Dye
Don’t you just love the rich vibrant colors of these eggs? The most exciting part is that they are dyed with natural stuff, items you most likely have in your kitchen. Beets, onions, turmeric, hibiscus, and purple cabbage with a little vinegar.
It will take a little time to make each color, 15 minutes to and hour, but worth the time if you want to go “natural”. I have not yet tried this, but plan on inviting my kids over and assign each one of them a color to make and bring to our “Colored Easter Egg” get together. I will let you know how it goes.
Upcycled Sweater Bunny
This little guy is so fun to make using upcycled sweaters or t-shirts.

I remember making these eggs in school. A fun little project using a little cornstarch, string and a balloon as the mold.

Paint Chip Garland
I love recycling things, and for some reason I am drawn to paint sample chips. Who knew you could make something so fun with paint chips?

Soft Sculpture Carrots
Last, but not least, is my favorite holiday decoration…….soft sculptured carrots. I know I have posted on these before, but just a little reminder of a fun, quick and charming craft to whip up.
These little guys are fun to
- Give as gifts
- Glue a magnet on the back of one and place it on your fridge for some bright cheery color
- Attach a string and name tag for place settings at your Easter dinner

Well, I hope these Easter projects get you into the spring and Easter mood. Have a good one!
