If you’re a sucker for holiday crafts but don’t want to take a course just to complete one, you need ideas that are quick and easy. I like a good craft, especially one I can use as a decoration for the Easter dinner table but purchasing a craft from a retail store can get pricy. Take inspiration from these two easy crafts for Easter. They are perfect for spring!
Chick in an Egg Place Card Holder
Such a sweet decoration—little cotton ball chicks peeking out of a paper egg. You can use these happy crafts as place card holders and take home gifts. Here are the supplies you need:
- Craft eggs (cardboard eggs)
- Knife tool
- Yellow cotton balls
- Tiny google eyes
- White glue
- Green construction paper
Start by drawing an egg shell crack along the top 1/3 of the egg with a pencil. This will be your cutting guide. You don’t have to completely remove the top of the shell but you do enough room to put a cotton ball in.
Carefully cut the egg with the knife tool. (Don’t hold the egg in your hand. Place the egg on a countertop or a work table.)
Glue two google eyes on the yellow cotton ball. Allow the glue to dry for 1 minute then tuck the cotton ball inside the egg. The eyes should face outward.
Cut a 1-inch wide strip of green paper about 4-inches long. Write your guest’s name in the center of the strip.
Make a loop with the paper strip, gluing the ends to keep it in place. Place your egg in the loop. Make one egg for each guest.
Candy and a Candle
This craft is so simple that you’ll wonder why you didn’t make it before. You’ll need one set of these supplies for each craft. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Hurricane vase
- Smaller glass vase
- Pink or pastel candle
- Jellybeans or candy eggs
Set the smaller vase inside the large vase.
Place the candle inside the small vase.
Pour the candies in between the two vases to create a pretty layer of color. Allow at least 2-inches of the candle to poke out the top.
Light the candle! You’ve got a gorgeous dinner table decoration.
