Over the past couple of days we've been busy with Easter crafts,
and we made enough to decorate the window...
Our Easter window.
I made the Easter wreath, from a wire coat hanger shaped into a circle and strips of material.
I bought these polystrene eggs from poundland.
This is a larger decoupage egg, which stands on the window sill.
We used toilet paper tubes.
We painted them and left them to dry.
Some were left whole and made into rabbits.
Others were cut into three pieces and made into a chick and a frog.
I wonder if a creme egg would fit into the tummy of the chick.
Easter + snow = snow flake Easter eggs!
Using this cardboard box from our new Hetty vacuum cleaner,
we have started...
an Easter wonderland!
Imogen is knitting Easter bunnies...
They are big enough to fit a chocolate egg
or real egg if you are being healthy!
I feel as though the spirit of Easter is lost with the piles of cheap Easter eggs in the supermarkets. So I've started making little gifts for the children.
I've filled these cellophane bags with their favourite pick 'n' mix and then added paper chick details.
They haven't cost much to make.
I also bought the children's favourite chocolate and wrapped it and added rabbit details. Much cheaper than an Easter egg.
But I'm sure I'll give in to the mountains of £1 Easter eggs on offer.
Easter window complete, we'll now move onto decorating the fireplace...
