- Bunny ears and bow set.
- Bag of marbles, plastic crystals, anything you can put with lights.
- 2 black flat marbles
- 20 count light set
- 2 big pom - pom's
- 1 bright pink 1 inch pom
- 1 square vase
- 2 pipe cleaners cut into 1/3's
- Hot glue gun
How to do it:
I had to do it twice because my lights looked funny. I put a layer of crystal pieces in the bottom and then 6 lights on top. Then I added about 2 inches of chrystals and another 6 lights, then another layer of chrystals and the rest of the lights. Then I stuck the bunny ears in then more chrystals. Glued on the poms, eyes and pipe cleaner whiskers. Added the bow and plugged it in! Yippeee! I love fun, fast and easy projects.....especially when I had all the stuff for it!
This is the light in the dark:

My friend Paige from Arizona, made this darling wreath - I have included her notes at the bottom of the picture of how she made it.
Basically it started with a straw wreath that I already had in my craft supplies, I hot glued yellow and green Easter grass around the wreath in about 6" patches, alternating, along with a couple swaths of a 2 1/2" wire Easter ribbon I had already. Then I cut the stems off of white & pink tiny flowers I got for $1 each at Walmart, alternated them around the circle - 6 stems each color. I cut the flowers off a purple (??? - maybe hydrangea?) and glued them around.
I did a search for "vintage Easter graphics" and saved 7 of them to my photos file and printed them off in wallet size. I spaced them around, glued in 6 or 7 small plastic eggs I got at Walgreens, made "chicks" out of yellow pom-poms with orange felt beaks and Google eyes. I found tiny little ducks at Fry's grocery store and used them, too.
I had some 2" straw hats in my craft cupboard so I added in 3 of those, and hot glued a ladybug button on each. Finally, I had a package of 3/8" pearl beads and I just added in about a dozen of those for effect.
This is a Peep's Wreath...the lights are peeps lights. I attached them to a wreath in bunches then covered them with tulle. The pictures really don't do this wreath justice, it is fun in person. There are also mini eggs here and there under the tulle.

by Rachel KellerHere's another great Easter tradition to share with your children or grand children. You can make it ahead of time make sure they have it to do it with their family.
Two weeks before Easter, we get out our Easter tree. Each day, we place one egg on the tree and read the corresponding Scripture, discussing how it relates to Easter. When my children were younger, we read the Bible story from their picture Bible story book.Easter TreeYou need a tree. (I got mine at the Dollar Store several years ago. I've seen these used as money trees for showers.) You also need several very tiny Easter eggs (to put on the tree), small baggies to hold the Easter eggs, and small strips of paper with the following verses:Day 1: Genesis 3:1-19 (God's first promise of sending a Redeemer)
Day 2: Genesis 22:1-14 (the story of Abraham and Isaac when God provides the ram for the offering)
Day 3: Exodus 12:21-30 (the first Passover)
Day 4: Numbers 21:4-9 (Moses and the brass serpent)
Day 5: Matthew 21:33-46 (parable of the unfaithful stewards)
Day 6: John 12:1-11 (Mary's anointing Jesus' feet with her hair)
Day 7: Matthew 21:1-11 (Jesus' triumphant entry--Palm Sunday)
Day 8: Matthew 26:14-30 (the Last Supper)
Day 9: Matthew 26:31-46 (the Garden of Gethsemane)
Day 10: Matthew 26:47-75 (Judas' betrayal)
Day 11: Matthew 27:11-31 (Jesus' trial before Pilate)
Day 12: Matthew 27:32-56 (the crucifixion)
Day 13: Matthew 27:57-66 (Jesus' burial)
Day 14: Matthew 28:1-10; Mark:16:1-20; Luke 24:1-49; John 20:1-31 (the resurrection)
Start two weeks before Easter. Each day, take the egg out of the little bag and hang it on the tree. Read the verses and discuss the meaning of the verses. On Easter morning, the tree is covered with eggs. (I have extra eggs I hang on the tree and a few other decorations to make it look beautiful.)http://blessingsforlife.com/crafts/eastertree.htm

Here are some darling "Spring Letters" Rose made that I just have to share: Here is the link to make them: http://sugarplumcottage.blogspot.com/2009/03/project-friday-wooden-letters.html
Though these flowers are more of a summer flower - at least in Idaho they are! THis could be made with any of your spring flowers for a great spring fresh flower centerpiece.
