Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been blogging much lately. I am not arrogant enough to think you care but it bothers me. One of the reasons is that I have knitting going on that I just can’t show you until it is released, and that sucks.
So I have decided to broaden my blog a little and do a few posts about the envy I feel when surfing the net. It happens. I get craft envy, house envy, knitting envy, all kinds of envy. I know you feel it sometimes too. When you look at something and think, “why didn’t I think of that?” or, “Why isn’t y house that beautiful?”… you’re with me here right?
Anyway, it seems there are a lot of Easter crafts popping up at the minute, since it’s Easter and that, so since I am child free for the weekend and have no-one to do the crafts with, I have decided to show you my 10 favourites from the blogosphere.
All link back to the tutorials for how to do it. All will make you a teeny tiny bit envious.
So without further a do Here are my top 10 favourites.
Egg Garland from CraftyEndeavor.com made by wrapping crochet thread (coated in a goo) around water balloons filled with air. Such a lovely idea.
I also saw a tutorial where they pushed two wrapped sweets into the balloon before blowing it up. When you pop the balloon the sweets are inside the cotton egg.
Sweet Egg Wreath by FunHomeThings.com
What fun to be had with some plastic eggs, ribbon, a foam wreath and glue!
Cute little felt carrot garland by Positively Splendid.
This one involves sewing and isn’t all that child friendly, but cute all the same.
Super simple googly eggs by 99Crafting.com. Boil and egg and stick the eyes on then draw a random mouth. Kids would love these!
How cute are these! Carrot Strawberries from Parenting.com. Dip strawberries into warm orange candy melts and leave in the fridge. Once hardened drizzle more candy melt over them to make these awesome looking carrots. Mine would not look like this I can tell you now!
There are a few Eater food crafts on the linked page and also a link to just go and buy these awesome carrots too!
A really cute way of tying up a flannel (wash cloth) by ThatsWhatSheSaid.net . You could even put a Cream egg in the center.
Fabric covered toilet roll centers by Pragentemiuda.org. Really cute. Blog will need translating unless you speak Portuguese.
I love these Bunny Tail Treat Cups by Delightfully Noted. Super cute and easy to make.
How sweet are these terracotta Easter baskets by HostessWithTheMostess? You could reuse them later too. I know they would look lovely in my kitchen. Really brighten up the place!
Last, but by no means least, are these gorgeous Maracons by SweetExplorations.com. They look too cute to eat, but they look really tasty. I am super conflicted!
