Put A Pin In It - Easter Projects

Perhaps it's a mixture of being frugal and/or sentimental but I like to fill Grace's Easter basket with something homemade. 

Easter baskets of the past have included some of the following *pin*spriation.

A few multi-colored felt Bunny Finger Puppets shared by The Purl Bee. Not only are they these bunnies adorable, they are really easy to make. 


One year this  Bunny Bowling Set, shared by The Long Thread on Etsy How-Tuesday, showed up in Grace's Easter basket.


These bunnies are almost too sweet to try and knock over...almost.


My favorite *pin*spired Easter basket filler was made using Fiona Dalton's Rabbit Pattern


Her patterns are easy to follow, even for someone who is a novice at sewing.   


Though, not an Easter Basket filler, the Peeps Bunny Bunting from Made is my favorite Easter decoration.


Really, what's not to love.


I guarantee, if you decide to make your own bunting, you won't be able to stop with just one.


What has been your favorite Easter basket filler?  I need some *pin*spiration for this year.

  1. Oh cute i love the rabbit doll and the bunnies most of all!!
    I have had those bowling bunnies pinned since pinterest was new and seriously want to make them. Sadly apart from the bags I made the older kids 10 years ago and the ones I made last year for the babies I haven't done anything homemade. My kids do however long for their new pj's I get them winter jammies at Easter, kind of like what you guys do for Christmas. Samuel at almost 15 still expects to see pj's. :)

  8. I definitely would say it's being sentimental and not frugal... I love handmade gifts... making and receiving. To me they hold more value. I think Grace will cherish every single one of her handmade gifts. I do remember Fiona Dalton's rabbit that you made... and I remember I loved her... still do! Since my sister is going to be here Easter weekend... I'm thinking for her older kids (10 & 8) creating a "make your own sock bunny" kit... no sew. My brother's 5 year old may be able to pull it off too. But for the little ones, not sure yet.
