Since Easter is just days away, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the adorable Easter-themed crafts and goodies that have been sent my way. In addition, if you have a creative idea for an Easter basket, Easter dish, or Easter anything for that matter, please feel free to share it below!
As a recent college grad who is unemployed, you truly help make my life a little easier and brighter. I wanted to share a little Easter basket I made using some of the great deals you have posted in the past couple of months. Using a basket I already had around the house, I made a cardboard backdrop for it using paper scraps to form eggs. Instead of Easter grass, I saved and reused the recycled squiggly packaging paper that had come in a Synovate Panel product I got to test a while back. The recycled paper was yellow and pink, so it worked out perfectly and I did not need to purchase any store bought Easter grass. The baby blanket is from the Totsy deal you posted back in early March and only came to $1.40. The Hershey bar I got for free with the CVS coupon you posted last week for a free candy or beverage up to $2.00, and the M&M Eggs I got for free a few weeks back at CVS as well using the $2/2 Mars candy coupon you posted about. So, basically with a little creativity, I was able to put together this adorable basket for a total of $1.40, all thanks to you.
Want a craft idea that is adorable and eco-friendly?! Then head on over to Happy Clippings to check out these Easter Bunny Bottles. All you’ll need is a water bottle, cupcake liner, Sharpie pen, googly eyes, printable bunny ears and hands, and glue (and a little candy to make them a sweet treat!).
Need a fun centerpiece for your Easter brunch? Consider making this flower arrangement as pictured in All You Magazine back in 2009. Simply gather 2 similarly shaped vases, one 3″ narrower than the other, Peeps, jelly beans and flowers. Insert the smaller vase inside the large; layer jelly beans in the space between the two; arrange Peeps on top of the jelly beans; and arrange your flowers!
OK, so now it is your turn! What are your creative and “hip” Easter ideas?
(Thanks, Stephanie and Happy Clippings!)
