Friday Favorites–Easter

Since next Friday is Earth Day, I thought I’d finish up my Easter favorites this week.  Easter is another craft-friendly holiday, with more great ideas and projects available than I could even begin to tell you about.  These are just a few that caught my eye.

There are actually two cute ideas here on The Crafting Chicks, but I love the cone chick the most.

And, here’s the felt.  You knew it would turn up here somewhere.  Betz White explains how to make these Carrot Candy Pouches.

These Baby Chick Marshmallows from Living Locurto look pretty simple to make and would make a great kid-craft.

I’ve seen several different methods of egg dying recently, but this has got to be the most unique.  Knuckle Salad used neckties to create these interesting designs.

I’m not likely to make these myself, but I love the fact that the option is out there.  Thanks to scoochmaroo from Instructables for sharing her recipe for Cadbury Crème Eggs.

Who would have thought to make a lamb out of Q-tipsCrafts for All Seasons did!

The carrots on this Framed Carrot Easter Décor from Positively Splendid are made from fabric.  I also like that they stick out from the background.  The “Yum” in the corner is just icing on the cake.  Or carrot.

I’ve been wanting to try using natural dyes for eggs for years, but I’m not sure I could compete with these from Twig and Toadstool.  They’re so vibrant!

This Jelly Bean Bark from Scissors and Spatulas not only looks pretty, but I’ll bet it tastes good too.  How could you go wrong with jelly beans and white chocolate?

I think you could add coconut to just about anything and I’m in.  Chocolate Covered Coconut Easter Eggs.  That’s all I needed to know.  Except there’s also a link to Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Easter Eggs.  Now I have a decision to make.  Thanks to Simply Designing for the recipes.

Since I’ve got you in the Easter spirit now, please read my post yesterday about the family of a police officer with cancer and how you can help.  Thanks!
