Easter Crafts

My daughter was off school two days last week for a state holiday and a rare snow day so I had to come up with a couple crafty projects to do with her.  Thank goodness for ye olde internet.  Great ideas floating around out there.

I had seen examples of these cute bunny pots just days before I found 6 small pots at my local thrift store.  I guess it was meant to be.  These really are cute and easy. Especially if you have some old silk flowers on hand. I did have to buy the pom poms* and felt.

I picked up an unopened package of peat pots at an estate sale late last year.  I had thoughts of making jack-o-lantern type decorations this year.  However, when the snow day suddenly arrived, I volunteered the pots for Easter decor instead.  They came out pretty cute too.

All of the images are from The Graphics Fairy.  I Mod Podged over the whole thing so the glitter would adhere.  A few notes: 1. Take it easy on the glitter or you obscure the image.  2. Don't punch a hole too close to the top or the pot can crack (one did).  3. I used 6 inch pipe cleaners because that was all I had, but longer ones might be cuter.

Not counting the pots which were in the well under a dollar range, the only money spent on these was the Easter grass which I found at a thrift store for 50 cents.  Not bad!  Thrifty and easy-- my kind of craft!


* Did you know pom pom can be spelled just like that or pompon or pom-pom?  Kind of odd.  And when you really stop and think about it, isn't it a strange word in the first place?


  1. This is my kind of craft too - I just wrote down what I need to buy..

  2. Bet your daughter had lots of fun creating crafts and lasting memories as well!
