Bead Bouquets

White or colored beads may be used
Use either fine wire that comes on spools or tag wire sold in bundles at stationery stores for stringing beads

String the beads onto the wire for flowers petals, Making petals as large as you like
Make 2 or more bead loops so there are 5 petals together
Twist 2 free ends or wire together into a short stem.
Make another group of 5 petals and push the wire ends through the middle of the first group
Make a center of yellow beads big enough to spiral twice push the wire ends down through the middle of the flower and loop it back up again to secure to the flower.

Wrap flower stem with green floral tape or with strip of crepe paper

Make either green bead leaves or use plastic greenery and you have your daisy flower.

Rose petals are solid instead of open loops and each is made individually.
You make the loop and then keep looping in the center till its full of beads for the rose petals
To assemble roll one petal into a cone.
arrange 4 cupped petals around center cone
Then arrange another 5 petals around center and twist wires together to make rose stem.

Cotton Ball Easter Egg

Supplies needed:

81/2x11 white construction paper
Pastel colored cotton balls
Child safe scissors
Stick glue

Take the construction paper and fold it in half length wise.

Take your scissors and cut out a half oval shape along the non folded edge, making sure that one end is cut a little flat (oval at the top, flat/straight on the bottom), you can draw it out with a pencil first to help with the cutting.

Open your paper and it should look like an egg (this is similar to cutting out a valentine heart).

Put glue on section of the egg and apply various colored cotton balls, continue until the entire egg is covered.

For the more creative one, try putting the colored cotton balls on in some type of pattern.

Let dry and hang on wall or refrigerator for all to see!!!!

Designer Gift Case

This Easter egg is made of gum paste. It is easier to make. And it may be filled with home-made sweets, chocolates and candies.
You can also use it as a container for a small gift, such as a folded and wrapped tie, or a brooch.

What you need:


An egg mold
(preferably a metal one)*
gum paste
a child-safe scalpel or knife


  • Color the gum paste as required. Then roll it out and smooth it into a well-polished smooth Easter egg mold.

  • Work the paste into the mold slowly. Use the knife or scalpel to trim the uneven edge level.

  • Make two and leave to dry overnight.

  • Join the two halves with small blobs of royal icing and allow to set. Trim the join carefully.

  • Alternatively a long fine braid of the paste may be made and used to cover the join.

  • Mold the soft braid around the egg, sticking it in place with an occasional blob of icing. Make a neat join at the bottom of the egg.

  • The egg may be glazed with confectioners varnish to give it a hard shiny finish.

    * You can find egg molds at any standard kitchen supplier, craft store or a party supplier

Paper Twist Heart

[size=21]Materials: Paper twist (2 coordinating colors), large paper clip, 1/8" wide ribbon, Silk craft leaves, ribbon rose, pearl stems, craft wire or twist tie, hot glue gun.

This is a easy project. Makes a nice gift package decoration and Christmas ornament.

Cut 2 pieces 21" long of each color paper twist. Using large paper clip hold one end of two colors together. Twist (like braiding) the 2 colors together. Shape into a heart shape, the cut ends are the top center of heart and curve down into the center. Using craft wire tie all ends together about 1 1/2" from end. Glue silk leaves over wire, glue pearl stems on next, Cut 1 piece 1/8" ribbon 20" long. Cut 1 piece 1/8" ribbon 7" long. Using longer length, lay ribbon back and fourth to shape into bow with 6 loops (three each side). Using short length, tie around center of bow. Glue to heart. Glue ribbon rose on top. Make a hanger out of ribbon and attach to back.
Using silk holly leaves and bells are nice for a Christmas theme. Also group 3 hearts together at various lengths and make into a wall decoration

Paper Bag Easter Bunny

Materials:

1 lunch sack for 1 paper bag
pink, white, and black construction paper
scissors
crayons
paste

Directions:

Cut a V notch at the top of each lunch sack.
* Hint: Draw the V from the top opening of the sack with a pencil.
Start at the top center and bring your notch down. This will form the ears.

Close the bag and lie flat.
Then cut your notch with both sides of the bag together.
This will be the bunny ears.

Cut out ear shapes with the white construction paper and glue onto "ear" of the bag.
Cut a smaller piece in pink for the inside of the ear, or reverse the colors. It's your choice.

Cut out a small triangle of pink for the nose and paste it in the center where a nose would go.

Draw in your eyes or you could cut them from paper or even add wiggle eyes.

Cut out a rectangle piece of black paper. Small in size about mustache size. Then make cuts from each side of the short end towards the center of the paper without cutting all the way through. Do this several times on each side to create whiskers. Paste this above the nose.

Now draw two circle cheeks and connect the mouth from the
cheeks to the nose like a kitty mouth.

Open up bag and it can now be a bag to collect eggs from your
class egg hunt or to take crafts home in and then use for center piece at home!

Torn Paper Easter Bunny


  If you're making decorations to celebrate Easter and the coming of spring, here's an easy way to make an Easter bunny. This project is most like collage, an art form in which the artist selects, assembles and glues materials to a background. Making a collage is a perfect way to recycle materials. Collect scraps of white paper or watch your mailbox for envelopes such as the type in which junk mail and bills are sent.

You Will Need:



  • Used white envelopes or paper
  • Wallpaper samples
  • Scrap construction paper
  • Cotton ball
  • Markers, crayons, or colored pencils
  • Pencil, eraser, ruler, and scissors
  • Glue stick

How To:

 Measure and draw the shapes described, and then cut them out. To make the various parts of the paper bunny, you will need:



  • One- 2.5"x2.5" square for the head
  • One-3.75"x4.75" rectangle for the body
  • Two-1.75"x2" rectangles for the feet
  • Two-1.5"x4.5" rectangles for the ears

 Starting with the square for the head, draw a large circle so that it touches the sides of the paper. For the body, draw a large oval shape on the rectangle, and repeat this step with the two smaller rectangles to make the feet. On the remaining rectangles, make a mark in the center at the top of each. From this mark, draw the ears, ending in the corner on either side.

 After you've finished drawing, you're ready to make the shapes that you'll use to create the bunny. Sometimes artists tear paper instead of cutting it, because they like the ragged edge that results. Rather than cutting the shapes, try tearing them to get a softer look.

 Before you start, practice on a scrap of paper. Draw another circle on a square so that the circle touches all four sides of the paper. Now hold the paper in one hand, and with your favored hand, tear the paper by pulling it toward you. Try to stay on or near the line you drew, but don't be concerned if the shape you make is not perfect. Part of the charm of making the bunny this way is the ragged, fluffy edge that results.

 After practicing, tear out all the shapes. When you're finished, gently erase any pencil marks that show. If you're unhappy with the size or shape of any part, just redraw it and try again. Now you're ready to assemble the bunny. Choose a wallpaper sample that has bright, spring like colors for your background. Glue the body near the center of the paper. Attach the ears behind the head, and glue this shape to the body. Finally, glue the feet in place, and add the cotton for its tail.

 Now it's up to you to make your bunny special. You can make it a different color or add spots here and there with crayons. Draw the rabbit's hindquarters and face. Don't forget the whiskers! Add interest to your picture by cutting blades of grass from scraps of construction paper. Cut Easter eggs from scraps of wallpaper or construction paper, and "hide" them in the grass. Glue everything in place and have a Happy Easter!
