Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well. I love making my own decorations for the holidays, especially when there’s a ton of ideas online. I’m currently decorating for Easter and found a great banner idea as well as adorable DIY paper carrots. I combined those ideas and included some plastic eggs and created this banner for the hallway outside my door.
You can see the instructions and printable template for the easter egg banner here http://www.creationsbykara.com/2012/03/easter-craft-easy-easter-egg-banner.html and pictures of the paper carrots here http://www2.fiskars.com/Crafting/Projects/Holiday/Easter/Easter-Egg-Hunt#.UUiNKlqMHUM
I used card stock to print out the template for the easter egg banner. I then used several decorative papers for the banner and used construction paper for the carrots. To hang these up I used pink and white baker’s twine.
At nickjr.com, there’s a whole bunch of crafting projects and I made the peter rabbit holiday garland (http://www.nickjr.com/printables/peter-rabbit-holiday-garlands.jhtml) because my youngest likes Peter Rabbit. I also printed out egg holders (http://www.nickjr.com/printables/peter-rabbit-easter-eggs.jhtml) and an egg basket (http://www.nickjr.com/crafts/peter-rabbit-egg-basket.jhtml) for when we start dyeing our easter eggs at home. Since my daughter dyed her first eggs at school, she’s super excited to do it again.
When I picked her up from school yesterday I brought her a basket so she could carry home her masterpiece dyed eggs. She’s in love with them and wants to keep them forever. 🙂
There’s definitely more egg stories to come. I’m also planning my youngest daughter’s birthday at a snail’s pace. So far, I only have a theme, Nickelodeon’s Bubble Guppies, and I’m planning on using the free printables on nickjr.com to decorate. Again, I’m leaving everything for the last minute, but isn’t that how it’s really done?
Take good care all.
Until next time…
