Signs of Spring: Favorites from the Spring Craft Blog Hop III, week 3

Easter is this Sunday, hooray! I'm bringing you more featured crafts from the Spring Craft Blog Hop, just in time for Easter. I've shopped for Easter basket goodies, and today we are dying eggs and getting our final touches for Easter Sunday. If you still need some last minute Easter Egg ideas, my friend Christie put together a fabulous round-up of egg projects!
Favorites from the Spring Craft Blog Hop, week 3
We're into our third edition of the Spring Craft Blog Hop, our biggest and longest hop of the series. Each week, I will highlight five of the crafts linked up from bloggers around the interwebs. Be sure to stop by the party each week to see all the new crafts that have been linked up, and add your own as well!

Because Easter is this weekend, I decided to share these fun crafts with you, just in time! I know I've mentioned before how much I love link-ups for the chance to meet new bloggers, so this week I'm sharing 4 crafts from bloggers never featured at Creative Mama Messy House before, and some awesome entertaining tips from one of the co-hosts of the Spring Craft Blog Hop.

 Cute Crochet Bunnies
by Jerry and Kay
These Easter Bunnies from Kay would make a fabulous Easter basket friend, especially if you're trying to avoid filling your kids or grandkids up with sugary treats. I'm thinking they would make an equally amazing baby shower gift from a soon-to-be aunt. I can't wait to pick up my free pattern and some super-soft yarn to get started!

no easter grass
Michele, you are my hero! If you are a mom of a Messy Child, you might agree that these Easter basket liners are just pure genius. That plastic Easter grass gets everywhere and is no fun to clean up. With this DIY liner, I can skip the grass and make a cushy bed for the kiddos' Easter goodies.
kids crafts, arts and crafts
This craft might not be an Easter-specific craft, but that doesn't mean you can't make them on Easter Sunday between the egg hunts and Easter Dinner. My youngest is currently obsessed with bugs and I think he would have a blast making these and fluttering around in the sunshine.

easter treats, easter crafts
Chelc created these festive mason jars, perfect for giving a little something at Easter. I would totally decorate my mantle with these pastel jars, and then give them away for Easter favors. If you are like me and always end up with leftover holiday candies, this would be a great solution!
kids table
I love Rachel's kids' tablescape for Easter! It makes me wish that I was still a kid. I'd be right there, doodling away. For all her great tips for a stress-free Easter or more Easter crafts, be sure to visit her blog.

Do you have a craft project that fits the bill? The #SCBH2015 runs from March 18th to May 25th on 19 blogs. We would love to see your crafts and seasonal d├ęcor!

  1. I am so excited to featured! Thanks Renee!

  2. I love these featured activities/posts. So spring and Easter-filled!!

    I dropped the ball on Easter crafts this year. Fortunately we took the kids to an Easter carnival today - they did eight different crafts over the span of 2 hours. Yay!

    Thanks for sharing and Happy Easter!

    1. Wow! That's a lot of crafts!
      My boys aren't too big on crafts (they would rather build something), but they did help dye eggs. We even made "dinosaur eggs" out of some of the ones with cracked eggshells!

  3. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and featuring my basket liner. I love that table setting too<3 Pinning!
