Spring Craftiness

I used to be crafty.  I suppose I probably still AM crafty, I just haven't utilized my craftiness in a while.  School and baby have taken priority... but now that Eliza is getting a little more independent and I've got summer ahead of me, I'm starting to think about things to do to work out my crafty muscles again.  I can't wait until Eliza is old enough to do little crafty projects with me.

So I thought I would start off with a couple of easy Easter projects... (now, whether or not I actually DO these is another matter, but a girl can hope - and plan!).

First, look at this cute Easter egg garland made with paint color samples.  What a great idea!  Seems simple enough... right?

The next one is a little more involved, but totally cute and would be so much fun to give away for a little Easter treat to friends and family - they are real eggs that you hollow out (by cutting a hold at the bottom of the egg, the only iffy part IMO), sterilize, color, and then fill with candy.  Then you glue them - hole side down - to a little muffin cup.  So what you get is a sweet little candy-filled egg that the recipient gets to crack open.  How cute is that?

Anyone else have any fun little spring project ideas?

So cute! But too time consuming for me this year- I'm hoping next year Teddy is more on board with me doing things that he can't necessarily destroy ;)

No craft ideas for you, but those are cute. My grandma used to take real eggs and make music boxes out of them, broaches, ornaments and other things...So this reminded me of her :) Thanks for sharing.
