If you are throwing an Easter gathering at your Lancaster home, this Easter garland is a must. An easy project for the entire family, turn plastic eggs into a bunny or a little chick with felt and add cotton balls and buttons for fun accents. For a table setting, get egg-static for this fun and easy idea! Take empty, clear vases in different shapes and sizes, and arrange them any way you want on the table. Add a little bit of straw on the bottom and stack plastic Easter eggs inside with different colors. To hold everyone’s seat, try these adorable Easter chick place holders. With some paint you can turn an ordinary plastic into a cute chick. Have your kids paint a few pots, add the spoons, and you have a creative place holder!  These ideas will add a colorful and whimsical element for your next Easter gathering.

If you are taking your kids Easter egg hunting this year, have your kids decorate their own Easter basket with different items found at a craft store. This button-embellished Easter basket is perfect for those button collectors; add a ribbon to the handle and your kid will have a fun, unique basket that is different from everyone else’s. After dying eggs, save some eggs to make eggshell candles. After getting the yolk out, have your kids decorate the shells any way they want using markers, paint or the egg dying kit. After the shells are dry, it is time to make the candle that goes inside. After you are finished, you will have colorful eggshell candles to light at night.
