This time last year I was hard at work making a Peeps wreath for our annual Easterpalooza celebration. This year though, the kiddos are with their dad so I realized today that I’d done nothing at all yet, to prepare for the holiday. We’ve spent the better portion of the day trying to rectify that including gathering supplies to make sock bunnies, which is how I plan on spending my Sunday. In the meantime though, I thought I’d check in on what some of my crafty friends had planned for Easter. Here’s some of what I found!
This is an oldie, but a goodie from Knitty Gritty: an angora & wool felted bunny, by Bev Galeskas. The pattern for this can be found on the DIY Network site.
I adore Luchadores–leave it to Crafty Chica to figure out how to incorporate them into Easter or Ostara celebrations. Check out her blog for more, great holiday ideas like this one.
Egg ornaments from Craft Magazine. These made me have decorators regret for not erecting an Easter tree this year! To get the scoop on how to knit these up yourself, go here.
On supercrafty Susan Beal’s blog I found these sweet treats by Tweet Sweet, that have me feeling earring envy. Three words: ear adornment elation!
Elisabeth Doherty’s crocheted Punk Bunny from her book, Amigurumi. I don’t actually know Elisabeth, but we have the same publisher so that almost counts as being friends, right? Regardless, she’s a freakin’ brilliant crochet artist.
My sister-in-law Meredith (aka La Mer Jewelery) has a few pieces up on Etsy, but this one in particular makes me want to don it at the next garden party I’m invited to (she says, pretending that she gets invited to garden parties often…or ever.) It’s a little bit classic, a little bit kitschy. I find that combination to be delightful.
