Easter is almost here, and that means time with the family, Easter arts and crafts, and Easter decorations. Sure, you can hard-boil some eggs and paint faces on them, but why not try something a little different this year?
When I grew up in the country, every Easter began by making a group of decorations and picking moss from the pine forest nearby. It was wonderful to be so close to nature and hear the Spring birds chirping. Nothing will ever beat my wonderful Easters with my mother in the country, but at least I can show you all how to make your very own cosy Easter this year with handcrafts and decorations :)
Easter handcrafts and decorations: 8 new ideas!
1. Make your own Easter flower group
A small basket or tin bucket
Earth or stone to add weight to the container
Fresh, green moss as a base to be laid on top of the earth/stone
Free choice Easter decorations at the front of the group. I used home made painted Easter eggs, and small yellow chickens
You can of course create all sorts of variations, e.g. with ivy or willow twigs. Use your imagination. You design the masterpiece :)
2. Surprise guests with Easter bunny serviettes
What could be more fun that sitting down for an Easter meal with something a little unexpected at the table?
Here is a serviette, folded into a cute Easter bunny. Folding instructions HERE
3. Coconut balls a la Easter
50 g butter at room temp.
4 dl oats
1 dl lemon curd
Little yellow and red food colouring
Mix the butter, oats, lemon curd, and food colouring.
Make small balls and roll in grated coconut.
Use a sweet almont as a beak, and two silver sugar balls as eyes.
