Boozy Easter Eggs

Boozy Easter Eggs

Boozy Easter Eggs!!!!! My Grandmother’s birthday just happens to be April 1st, which happens to be April Fools fools day. Her favorite wine just happens to be Sutter Home, so last year I made her Boozy Easter Eggs and placed them in an Easter Basket. Figured it would be a gift that would sure make everyone giggle AND one my Grandmother would enjoy since she does love her wine!!!!

The Boozy Easter Eggs were such a hit with my family, that I decided this Easter season I would make the eggs for y’all over here on the blog!!!!

The plastic eggs can be found at Dollar Tree and you can purchase the mini Sutter Home bottles at any store that sells wine for ridiculously cheap. My local store even sells four packs for around $6! Perfect for an Easter gift for your besties or a Grandmother like mine who loves her wine!

Cheers & Happy Easter!

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.

Fully Loaded Burger Bowls

Fully Loaded Burger Bowls

A whole new way to burger.

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.
Of course, a traditional burger also comes with one other thing: the bun. And for anyone who’s trying to steer clear of carbs, that kind of ruins the whole meal.

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!

Instead of forming the beef into patties, you shape it into a little bowl and load it up with cheese, mushrooms, and bacon. 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.

Here’s another plus: you don’t need to wait for nice weather so you can fire up the grill. These Fully Loaded Burger Bowls are good rain or shine!

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. Add a flower rosette for an adorable bunny tail!

 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!

DIY Easter T-Shirts

DIY Easter T-Shirts

I love making fun shirts for my grandkids.  I’ve recently discovered Heat Transfer Vinyl or HTV for short.  It’s a medium that is easily cut on a Cricut or any electronic cutting machine and transferred on to a blank shirt using a regular iron or a Cricut Easy Press.

I create my transfers on Design Space, Cricut’s designing app, and cut it out on my Cricut Maker.  If you don’t have a Maker you can use any Cricut model or any cutting machine.  Once the vinyl is cut and weeded (that’s taking out the unwanted areas using a weeding tool – a tool that resembles a dental pick) I then iron on the vinyl using my Easy Press, but you can use a regular iron or any other heat press.

So today I  will share my super cute Easter T-shirts with you!  I’ll share the link to my design space project! You will need to create a free design space account to access it.  Click here for the project link!  

The project also has the design for my Easter signs which I will tell you how to make next week.  Actually if you want to you can use the sign design to make shirts and vice versa!

So to make this project you will need:

Cutting Machine

HTV in pastel colors or what ever colors you want (you can use the Cricut Brand HTV or other brands.  I use a combination and buy the bundles from Amazon.)

Weeding tool

Scrap Collector (Optional but handy when you’re weeding small pieces)

Heat Press or Iron

Blank T-shirts – pre-washed and dried

Once you have all your supplies and tools you can make these cool Easter T-shirts in just a few minutes!  Here’s how:

Cut the HTV using cutting machine. Remember to “mirror” the image and place the shiny side down on the cutting mat. Cuts are on the HTV part so words and figures must be mirrored so it is correct when transferred to the shirt.

Weed out unwanted pieces.

Heat iron or heat press to required temperature.

On an ironing board or padded table top place your blank shirt.

Press out wrinkles.

Since this is a layered design (sunglasses on the peeps) place your Peeps centered on the blank shirt.

Cover with a towel or teflon sheet and place press or iron on the vinyl.  Apply pressure without moving the iron or press.  Leave on for required time, about 45 seconds.  If using an iron you may have to press your HTV on in sections.  To do this carefully lift the iron to the next section and repeat process until the design is completely transferred.

Let it cool for a few seconds then carefully lift off the clear transfer sheet.  Repeat this process with the words.

Then place the sunglasses on each peep and repeat the above process.

Turn the shirt over and press the back of the shirt for about 45 seconds per section.

That’s it!  Easy right?
