There are many reasons to love Easter: not one but two Bank Holidays, gathering with family and friends, and of course, lots and lots of chocolate. However you will be spending it, whether it is of religious significance for you or simply a time to relax, why not try these very easy tutorials to add that extra touch to your home during this special Spring celebration?
Desserts in a Jar
We love baking in glass jars and Easter is no exception! Try making these Bird’s Nest Cupcakes in Mason Jars layered with sponge cake, lemon curd, apricot-pineapple preserves and cream cheese frosting. Topped with toasted coconut…it’s a true spring treat! Full tutorial here.
Easter Egg Vase
A very simple idea with a real ‘wow’ factor! Start with a large clear glass jar or a vase and place it in the center. Then stack dyed, hard-cooked eggs between the glass and jar, alternating egg colours. Fill the glass with water. Cut the stems of your favorite flowers to the desired length, and arrange them in the glass. Full tutorial here.
An Egg Display to Last
Want to make something long lasting? Blow out the inside of your eggs and put them into a large glass jar – they will last indefinitely. Make your display more interesting by combining it with some other natural treasures: beach pebbles, sticks or dried flowers. Full tutorial here.
Treats for Kids
Love to try something new? Why not use glass jars instead of traditional baskets to put a selection of sweets in. Add a pretty cloth and a ribbon to make them really stand out. Full tutorial here.
Don’t forget to add Easter sparkle to your drinks too! Cut out some bunny ears and attach them to the rim of a glass bottle. Use some pink polka dot card stock to make the inner ear. Full tutorial here.
