CREATE … naturally dyed easter eggs and a finished lacy easter skirt

I posted a progress shot a couple of weeks ago of the Easter skirt made using vintage lace and here’s the finished skirt using this Oliver and S pattern. It was really fun to make and a very simple pattern to use.

The kids all decorated eggs using cray pas, which work so well, and then dipped them into natural dyes using turmeric and berries. Here are some other examples of natural egg dyes. We just used what we had available at the house. They had fun decorating, but maybe even more fun making the straight pin stands for the eggs to dry on (found via pinterest).  You can take a look at my Easter pinterest board here for other fun ideas.

CREATE … simple last minute easter ideas for this week

Bunny ear bags for fruit from A Subtle Revelry. Such a fun idea and a great alternative to candy. Lamb ears would also be fun to experiment with.

Egg-Carton-Box-13.1

Egg Cartons filled with treats by DesignMom. Simple, fun way to package Easter treats. I have been saving some shredded brown packaging paper that would be perfect for this.

Happy Monday
