Everyone needs a chick farm this Easter! Oats form the base with Imperial Mints as little eggs and some marbles for a pond.  Easy peasy and super cuuuute!

Let the shenanigans begin 🐤

Hop hop hooray

 

Easter baskets underway! We’re really hoppy with how they’re coming along.  A cute mix of handmade and shop bought bunniness 🐣

This year we’ve gone for pompom chicks and bunnies, crocheted carrots, some egg shaped crayons and of course plenty of chocolate ♥

Some bunny loves Easter madness (^-^)

Chick this out 🐤

A wreath of chicks – how springy we hear you say (^-^)

How could we resist?  These crazy chicks make for a perfectly manic Easter decoration.

All you need is 100 chenille chicks, superglue and a ring of cardboard.  Obvi*

The joy of making this is immense.  Buying packs and packs of chicks is just the beginning. Chopping off their feet for a more glueable surface adds great comic value, then placing them side by side and watching your ring fill up equals complete satisfaction.

Herein starts another crazy chick tradition 🐤 Huzzah!

PomPom Chicks

As you can see we’re still obsessed with pompoms (^-^) In fact we’re pretty sure everything will make a super cute pompom.

These Easter chicks also happen to be super easy. One pom, a couple of eyes and a little felt. Cuuuuuuute!

And to think, we weren’t even going to do Easter! Cheep cheep 🐣

 

Re-Crayoning

We said we weren’t going to go all out this Easter.  Ha!  We were fools not to factor in spring being in the air and pinterest being full of cute makes.

Here we go with the first of our Easter basket crafts.  It’s just too impersonal to hand over a chocolate egg and be done with it (^-^)

Bunny crayons. Simpler than simple. All you need are old crayons and a silicone mould.  We got ours from the Pound Shop.

Chop up the crayons and place in the mould.  Preheat your oven to 200°C and pop them in for 6 minutes. They’ll become satisfyingly molten and vivid.

Leave to cool completely then pop out and admire your work.

We decided to go for individual crayon colours in the hopes that the bunny shape would feature clearly, plus our dotes are little sticklers for an unmixed palette but a mismatch of old crayon ends could make for a fun experiment.

We’ll be putting ours into fillable plastic eggs.  Lets hope our dotes don’t try and eat em (^-^)Logo
