Top crafty ideas for Easter
Easter is nearly here, and you may be looking for some top gift ideas that are both unique and special, and more importantly, will leave you with a few dollars to spare. If you usually splash out on store-bought chocolate Easter eggs, or perhaps you buy some new items of clothing for your friends and loved ones, then you could give them a gift that is even more memorable – just by using what you have at home. Even if you are not very crafty, worry not. Thanks to the Internet, there are a variety of ways that you can get organized and create and order some special Easter gifts.
Cards and Origami
There is something magical about receiving a card that is made by hand, or even if you are gifted a special bookmark that is made by one of your friends. Origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper folding is incredibly easy to master, all you need is a big stack of paper to get going and some patience while you are learning. You can look online for videos and tips as to how to create your own Easter bunny, lamb or even an Easter egg made entirely out of paper. While if you are looking to create some seasonal cards, then head to your local dollar store to pick up some unique accessories and finishing touches. Getting crafty will save you a huge amount of money, plus you can learn a new skill at the same time.
If you have family visiting you this Easter time, then what better way to share the love than by getting baking and enjoying yourself in the kitchen? From cooking up some seasonal cookies, using dried fruits and chocolate chips, to making your own Easter cupcakes that you can get your kids to help you to decorate, baking is an activity that you can enjoy with your entire family. While if you are looking to cater for an Easter event, then be sure to enjoy some seasonal pot roast recipes and fresh spring vegetables as a side dish. If you are baking with kids, be sure to provide supervision if you need to use any sharp knives or open a hot oven.
You might have enjoyed decorating your bag with these as a child, and the good news is that pin buttons are still in fashion. So, if you are looking to buy a gift for stubborn teenagers or sulky adolescents, then these provide a cool accessory that they can use to decorate their school bags and personal items – much healthier than a chocolate egg!
So, if you are looking to get crafty this Easter then you do not need to spend a fortune. Make sure that you stock up on materials such as paper and card from your local dollar store so that you can create your own cards and bookmarks. Get baking to cater for family and friends with a sweet tooth, and consider pin buttons for a unique fashion accessory this Easter time.
