Last night was another In the Budget show on the Creative Edventures network. In the Budget is a show hosted by Cyn Gagen which features budget friendly crafting ideas. Last night’s theme was Easter.
The bunny candy cup is based on a design I saw in the most recent issue of Crafts and Things magazine. The egg carton chick candy holder is from a design I saw on the following blog: http://paperplateandplane.wordpress.com/2011/03/19/easter-egg-carton-chicks/
For the carrot favour box, I used a template from Mirkwood Designs: http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/icicle.htm She used this template to make icicle favour boxes but by stamping and colouring it orange and adding some green yarn to hold it closed, it takes on a carrot appearance that’s perfect for Easter dinner table favours or in Easter baskets.
The crucifix is made from ordinary clothespins.
You can adapt this to make a standard cross without the figure on it as well.
This Spring/Easter wallhanging or door decoration is based on one that my daughter made when she was in Girl Guides many years ago. I believe the original design came from Pack o Fun magazine. It’s made from craft foam but can easily be done out of construction paper or cardboard. I added some details to it with puff paints.

I don’t have a show next Tuesday because I’ll be heading over to watch the amazing Andrea Currie on Craft-tastic Live http://www.andreacurriecrafts.com. The following week, on April 5th, it’s In the Home and I’ll be sharing eco-friendly ideas for house cleaners with you. Hope you can join me!
