Easter and Spring–Sewing and Craft Ideas

This holiday I’m trying to be ahead of the game. So instead of sharing a roundup of ideas on say, the day before Easter?…I thought I’d do it 3 weeks early! Baby steps toward blog-post management.
So here’s an Easter basket of springy ideas from our house and yours.

Last year I made a felt Peeps Bunting.
And then I made more. And a few more. And some door hangers. I kept the yellow bunting for myself, which will be hanging up in the house soon!
If you’re ever in need inspiration, the Purl Bee is a sure bet.
Last year Molly made Bunny Finger Puppets and this year her Easter Egg Hunt Bags have been all over blogland. They’re so genius-ly simple and adorable.
Here’s a crafty way to recycle your paper shreds: the Brown Bag Bird’s Nest by the Long Thread, posted on Alpha Mom:
And a fun twist on the standard paper garland by Martha Stewart’s craft department (seen via Be Different, Act Normal)

Every Spring needs flowers. How about 4 ideas that don’t require sewing?
