For the last few months, I've been hosting a Craft-a-palooza. In it's simplest terms its a craft marathon where a group of friends gets together as soon as we drop off our kids at school and we craft until it's time to pick them up. Lets face it, it's always more fun to craft with friends, so that's what we've been doing. Now granted, trying to nail down a day when everyone is free is a challenge, but we manage and it;s always so much fun.
So a few weeks before we start to scour the web for fun craft ideas to go along with the theme of the month. Obviously this month's theme is Easter... and all I can say is with the crazy schedules we all have right now, thank goodness Easter is late this year.
We found so many wonderful crafts that some very talented women have made and posted to their blogs. We put a little spin on some of them, downright copied others, and then created some of our own.
We made these... that we altered from this idea
We loved these PB knockoff eggs and just had to make our own
I absolutely loved this wreath and HAD to make one of my own. What a brilliant idea. Although I decided not to use the spray foam and opted to use grocery bags to add the padding to the wreath. Great way to be "green" while crafting... I thought.
Then we made this fun and simple little frame. I love the idea that life is "renewed" in the spring.
And finally I used a silhouette template I found on the web to make this little guy...
I love how he turned out. As you can imagine... after all this crafting I am exhausted! Fun but super exhausting day.
