Easter is only a week and a half away, so it is a great time to finish up those Easter cards to give family and friends, create a few adorable Easter goodies, and make some decorations for your home. Below is a round-up of some of the cute Easter and Spring themed projects that have caught my eye recently.
Put a bird on it!
You could make the paper version to use as place cards for Easter dinner or as a tag on an Easter gift/basket. The felt version could be worn as a spring brooch or add a few to a spring wreath for your front door. The possibilities are nearly endless with these adorable birds. For a template, click here.
Get crafty with the kids and create Easter décor in the meantime!
Look how cute this egg wreath is! The patterned paper paired with the solid makes for an adorable layout, or have your kids decorate solid colored eggs and make a wreath with those. Great variations of this would be to use solid color paper/cardstock and “mix media” it up with distress inks, acrylic paint, Nuvo Crystal dots and more or create one from gelli prints that you make on a gelli plate.
Grab your gesso, distress paints, gel medium and stamps to create artistic eggs for décor.

Stripes for Spring.
Make a cute front for a card or piece of artwork to hang by using strips of paper or washi tape. You can easily create striped backgrounds that can be turned into eggs, bunnies and more.
Make a garland to hang.
Create an adorable bunny garland to hang and don’t forget the cute fluffy bunny tails!
