A few craft projects.

I've had way more ideas and desire to craft than I have actual crafting time but I did manage to get a few things made.

In the basket in the back are some eggs. Those are the cheap plastic ones from the dollar store. I wrapped them in jute or sisal twine and then decorated them with some ribbon and buttons.

Moving to the right is a toilet paper roll bunny. He's covered in Easter scrapbook paper then I added the face, ears and feet. As I'm typing this post and looking at the picture I just noticed that the paper he's wrapped in is upside down.

The two Easter baskets are made out of peat pots. One I painted the whole thing then added polka dots and the other one I just added the dots. I finished them off with some lace and a pipe cleaner handle.

The last craft is a little banner. The shapes were cute using my Cricut machine. I added features to the bunny with marker and put a flower sticker on the one egg. I ran the two baskets and the one egg through my cuttlebug to give them some texture. Lastly I glued all the pieces on to a piece of jute twine and added a couple little bows on each end.

I LOVE your Easter crafts! Those jute eggs are great and the banner is adorable! I haven't even started on any Easter crafts yet..

Ann, how or what did you put on the plastic eggs to hold the jute? Anything? I want to try some of these with Mia when I get home. Good morning from Aruba...:)JP

Okay...to be honest, I've truly missed your posts on your crafting ideas and project. I so enjoyed this seasonal work of art Ann!!! The 'garland' is my favorite I think.

just imagine how much you can get done when you get old like me and retire... looks like you did a lot to me. i love the eggs, they are my favorite and next is the unpainted bucket.

Very cute Ann! Peat pots as baskets are so cute....plus it limits the amount of candy I can put in them. The parents of my grandbabies will appreciate that.
I LOVE the jute wrapped eggs! I'm adding them to my "to do" list!!

So cute! That toilet paper roll bunny looked like a can bunny or something bigger. He's cute even if he's upside down! :) Love the jute eggs!

Grace said...

No one would ever noticed the paper is up-side down...I always wonder about the technical end of things - I would like to see how the cricut machine works and the cuttlebug(?).

You know I love everything that you make. You are so talented. Yes you are. You did make me go back and look for the upside down paper. I wouldn't have noticed if you'd not mentioned it.

Have a fabulous day honey. My very best to Duke. :)

Girl you are already for Easter with all those bunnies.

Haddock said...

Like that toilet paper roll bunny.

Back before you started wanting to be so crafty, you never worried about your weight--right? So, would it be a stretch to think that crafting just might be really fattening?

By the way, Duke ain't got no time for no stinkin' diets. Therefore, GO FRY HIM SOME BACON!

Oh how I love the Easter garland! You always make me want to make these things for myself!

Eva Ason said...

You did a good job on all these. The bunny looks really cute :) and lovely baskets

I like the garland. While in AL I added some doodads to a wreath for one of Loretta's friends. It had two lonesome items and she wanted a bit more action. Mission accomplished. No pics.
