New Easter Crafts

I've been playing around in my craft studio making some Easter decorations! I think they are turning out pretty cute so I thought I'd share.

I started with a bag of vintage Styrofoam Easter egg shapes that I've had for some time. Someone had shaved off the top so they had a flat area and stuck some flowers in them... not sure exactly what they had in mind. My original thought was to pull out the flowers and save them and discard the eggs but when I started to do that, all of a sudden I saw little wheeled Easter egg carts!

Easter Crafts


I used some vintage buttons for wheels (and a rear bumper on one cart!), little vintage candle holders in the shape of a little yellow chick, and some fuzzy Easter chicks and ceramic blue birds to pull the carts!


I created a stand for this Easter cart and bluebird out of a CD and recycled baby food jar!


What do you think of the "tailpipes" on this cart?! Know what they are? They are also candle holders in the shape of little tulips!


I put some colorful crinkled Easter grass inside the jar along with a couple of eggs.


For this chick and cart I used a wooden plaque and painted the sides and covered the top with pretty paper.


Inside each cart, along with the yellow chick are vintage millinery flowers (actually the flowers that someone had originally stuck in the eggs!), crepe paper, and pink mushrooms!



Colorful baker's twine forms the cart "reins"!


For this little cart I used a soap box for the stand... so it smells pretty too :o)



I found a pink pipe cleaner spiral in my stash and added that to the rear end on this one!


I had a lot of fun creating these and I actually have two more I'm still working on. One is mounted on an old book and the other has yet to find an appropriate stand!
