Creative Spring and Easter Signs to Enhance Your Home Decor for the Season

Creative Spring and Easter Signs to Enhance Your Home Decor for the Season

Here are some things to think about to help you choose your new spring and Easter signs. Before choosing your home decorations, think about your everyday style. Do you prefer understated or bold decor? Do you have a specific style such as country or Victorian? Maybe you like a little bit of everything and have an eclectic style. Once you know your style, choose a spring or Easter sign that is similar in style. This way it will enhance the beautiful decorating that you have already done in your home rather than clash with it.

You will also want to think about the space that you want to decorate. Is there room for a large wall sign? If so, then choose from the larger signs that come ready to hang. Do you only have some nooks and crannies on shelves to display a sign? There are many cute, little signs that can be tucked in around a potted flower or sit in front of a row of books on a shelf. Do you want it to be indoors or outdoors? Many of the signs listed here have been sealed so that they can be displayed outside safely. Be sure to choose the right sign for your space, and it will surely look fantastic.

7 Easy Steps to Pulling Off an Epic Easter Egg Hunt

7 Easy Steps to Pulling Off an Epic Easter Egg Hunt

Hosting an egg hunt this Easter? Here are the basics to planning a successful holiday hunt without breaking a sweat.

 

Ask any kid who’s been a part of one: Egg hunts are the best part of Easter celebrations. There’s candy, outdoor activity, colorful eggs, a little light-hearted competition, and, best of all, prizes. While you’re probably familiar with the modern Easter game of hiding hard-boiled eggs or plastic eggs filled with candy for kids to collect, versions of this particular Easter tradition appear to have been around for centuries. According to History.com, sources suggest the concept of the Easter bunny may initially derive from lore about an egg-laying hare, introduced in America by 18th century German settlers in Pennsylvania. Children would set out homemade nests, in which this ancestor of the Easter bunny could lay its pretty-colored eggs.

These days, it’s the perfect excuse to get outside for some springtime air and watch kids young and old search for hidden treasure. Thinking it’s time you stepped up to host the annual Easter hunt extravaganza? Or maybe you’re plotting a small-but-spirited at-home hunt for the little ones in your immediate family. Follow these easy steps for pulling off a classic Easter egg hunt like a pro.

ADVERTISING

1. Set the Date
Of course it’s traditional to have an Easter egg hunt on Easter Day, but it’s certainly not required. In fact, you may be attending a few in the neighborhood, in addition to hosting your own, so realistically not all egg hunts can happen on the same day. An ideal timeframe would be Easter weekend, or even the week/end before. If you’re planning on hosting outdoors, have a back-up location plan in case of rain or chilly weather.

2. Pick a Location
Whether the hunt is taking place in your front yard or the grounds of the community center, make sure the location works for your group. Pick an area that’s large enough for your hunters, but not too large that it’s impossible to find the eggs. You’ll also want a spot where you can clearly define the boundaries, has plenty of grass, and is set far enough away from a road or pond. If you’re hosting inside, try and make sure the adventures take place on one floor so there are no stairs in the mix.

3. Stock Up on Eggs
Quite possibly the most important part of an Easter egg hunt. While some hosts prefer to hide real eggs, it’s often best to use plastic eggs, especially if there are a lot of little kids invited to your hunt (and bonus, you can fill each plastic egg with candy, knick-knacks, and even coins, if you’re feeling generous!). You’re also welcome to use a mix of both—the more eggs the merrier. If you’re not sure about how many to have on hand, we’d suggest about 10 eggs per child, depending on the age group.

4. Have Baskets, Buckets, and Pails at the Ready
You could host a BYOB (Bring Your Own Basket) Easter egg hunt—and it would be great if everyone showed up with baskets—but play it safe and assume you’ll need to have egg-collecting gear for all your hunt attendees. Plan to have at least one vessel for goodies for every guest invited. Easter baskets are always traditional, but tote bags, beach pails, or even cute small boxes are fun Easter basket alternatives.

5. Hide the Eggs
Before you start hiding anything, count the eggs. (You’ll thank yourself later.) Choose hiding spots that make sense for the ages of the kids invited. You’ll want some eggs in more obvious locations (right on the open lawn), and others hidden in more challenging spots like tucked inside a mailbox, in a plant bed, or hidden behind the stump of a tree.

6. Ready, Set, Hunt
If you’re hosting many kids of all different ages, think about letting kids start in rounds by age group or range. To be fair, let the the littlest hunters have first dibs on eggs. Once they go, start a countdown of a minute to 30 seconds (any longer and you’ll probably make some enemies) before giving the older age groups the go-ahead to join in.

7. Count the Eggs
When you’re certain that all the eggs have been found (this is where counting them before hiding them comes in handy), it’s time to make the final tally. Sometimes even the egg hiders forget about those clever hiding spots. If you choose to reward the all-star gatherers—beyond the goodies inside their bounty of plastic eggs—now’s the time to offer up festive Easter prizes.

So for all you carb avoiders, I’ve come up with a whole new way to enjoy burgers without the bun. Instead, you serve all the toppings in – the burger itself! These Fully Loaded Burger Bowls are burgers, filled with your favorite topping! It a whole new way to burger!

 

Summertime, as we all know, is burger time. There’s nothing quite like a nice, juicy burger, hot off the grill, with all your favorite fixings – bacon, cheese, and some nice fried mushrooms.

So for all you carb-avoiders, I’ve come up with a whole new way to enjoy burgers without the bun. Instead, you serve all the toppings in – the burger itself!

Then put those filled bowls on a baking pan and bake them under a foil tent for half an hour, so all the juices from the meat blend together with those tasty toppings. You can top these with barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, diced chives, or all three.

DIY Easter Bunny Shirt with Rosette Tail

DIY Easter Bunny Shirt with Rosette Tail

This is my baby girl‘s first Easter, so of course, she needed a cute Easter Bunny Shirt! And with only a few days left until Easter, I knew I had to come up with a quick and easy Easter shirt. So I made this adorable Easter Bunny shirt with Rosette tail. It turned out even cuter than I had expected! The rosette tail is the perfect fluff without sticking off the shirt too much. And…I sort of have an ever-growing collection of those shabby rosette flowers and needed another way to use them!

I wanted to use bright, happy, and youthful colors and I think the magenta and lime were absolutely perfect for that. You might recognize that cute bunny shape from the Bunny Butt card I did a couple years ago 🙂

Easter shirt for baby girls. Love the addition of the rosette bunny tail!

Little Miss D loves the fuzzy rosette tail on her tummy! Its like a built-in sensory shirt with the smooth heat transfer and fuzzy flower. haha

 Easter Bunny Shirt Tutorial

silhouette portrait craft

Supplies: Silhouette Portrait, hook tool, magenta heat transfer from Happy Crafters {sponsor}, white shirt or white onesie, iron, thread, needle, and a 1.5″ lime green rosette.

I cut the bunny silhouette out with my Silhouette Portrait. Then I ironed the decal onto the white shirt. {for a more in-depth tutorial on how to use Heat Transfer, click here.}

Use a rosette flower for the bunny's tail. Genius!! Such a cute easter shirt.

Then using the thread and needle, I carefully stitched the rosette to the bottom of the bunny. Be careful pushing the needle through the heat transfer, you may want to use a thimble to protect your fingers.

*Tip: before you put holes in your heat transfer with the needle, double check that the tail is in the right place and that the hole will not be visible when you’re done.  

Adorable Easter Shirt! Love the colors and the rosette for a bunny tail.

This shirt is perfect for that Easter cutie in your life!
