Easter crafts for the uncrafty

Posted: Updated:
Many of you will be celebrating Easter this weekend with family and friends so our expert party planner Jennifer Durbin, author of the Party Planning Tips for the Clueless Chick books, visited the WNCN Today set to give you a few ideas that will make even the uncrafty feel like Martha Stewart this weekend:

Simply Adorable Easter Craft
  • Easter Bunny Whiskers. These adorable and very easy to make Easter bunny whiskers will be a hit with kids of all ages at your Easter brunch. All you will need to make these adorable crafts are:
  • White pipe cleaners
  • Pink pom poms
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Hot glue gun

Simply cut your pipe cleaners in half, stack three on top of each other, fan them out like whiskers and hot glue them in the center to the top of your popsicle stick. Add an additional dollop of hot glue to the center of your whiskers and place a pink pom pom on top. You can even write everyone’s name on the popsicle stick for a perfectly festive place card.

Tip: Easter bunny whiskers are also a great favor for all of the kids at school, or activity for the kids at your Easter celebration.

Fun and Festive Easter Treats

  • Fruit salad cups. One of the most fun and festive ways to feed your guests is with adorable personal fruit salad cups. You can keep your Easter decoration costs low by incorporating beautiful spring colors, like these chevron treat cups from BrithdayExpress.com instead of searching for Easter pieces, which you will only use once a year.

Tip: Shop for spring-colored paper goods and decorations that you can reuse at a birthday party or backyard barbeque this spring.

Easter egg krispy treats: One of the easiest treats we can all make are rice krispy treats. It doesn’t get much easier than melting marshmallows and mixing in rice krispys. To turn them into the perfect Easter treat, add a few drops of food coloring to your marshmallows or use fruity pebbles instead of rice kripys. Once your krispy treats are mixed, allow them to cool a bit and shape into eggs with plastic bag covered hands.

Dapper accessories for your little ones

Bowties and Headbands: You can dress up any outfit for Easter Sunday with an adorable bow tie or hair bow for your little one. These adorable baby bow ties and headbands are handmade in the USA by Tadpole & Lilly, a company started by two friends in Fort Mill, SC. Honestly, is there anything cuter than a dapper little man or well accessorized little lady?
