Two easy peasy Easter crafts...

Remember those Dollar Store plastic wine glass cloches we made at Christmas?
As you can imagine, they are pretty darn cute at Easter too!  
I filled my cloche with Easter grass, flowers from the Target $1 bins and a fuzzy chick. The ideas are endless.

You can even use the wine glass base for the base of the cloche.  Just flip it over to the opposite side.
My second craft is another recycled idea from my blog, but it's so easy, I thought it was worth repeating. 
Grab a few of those plastic eggs and your glue gun!
Supplies:
Plastic Easter eggs
Glue gun
Easter grass
cardboard or cardstock
Fuzzy chicks
Pipe cleaners
Rick rack and mini flowers (optional)

1. Cut out cardboard square pieces and apply hot glue to the center of the cardboard and spread Easter grass over the glue.


2. Take a part the plastic Easter egg and attach with glue gun to the grass/cardboard.

3. Glue rick rack around the diameter of the egg and cut a a pipe cleaner in half and attach with glue gun to the interior of the egg to form a basket handle.
4.Each handle also has a tiny silk flower and fuzzy chick glued to them.  This part is also optional but is super cute.   Michaels and Hobby Lobby currently have all their fuzzy chicks 40-50% off .

5. If you are using them for place card holders, print off name tags and attach with hot glue to the egg.
Be sure to fill the plastic egg baskets with candy and enjoy! Happy Easter!  Happy Crafting!
