Easter is for many countries the spring holiday – the table is set with bright and vivid colours, multi-coloured eggs, table decorations in pastels and vernal flowers. We love handmade and especially things crafted by kids among our table decorations, be it Easter bunny napkin rings or self made egg cups and cress eggs with bunny faces – they are adorable, and you can straight away collect the cress and have it with your scrambled egg or your sunny side up or directly on top of bread and butter.
The serviette rings and eggcups are available as downloadable pattern, click on the links and you will get to the page. The instructions for the cress eggs can be found when clicking the cressegg-links.
To provide not only ideas to paint, cut and plant with your children in preparation for Easter, we prepared a little Easter embroidery – three coloured eggs are on the Easter stitching pattern, which you can use as design for fuse beads as well.
The three embroidery patterns show: an Easter egg with small flowers, a striped Easter egg and a pastel coloured Easter egg. The colours we used are suggestions, use the colour you like best and which suit your table decoration.
Not only in our house Handmade has its tradition during Easter: Small white doilies with cross stitch embroidery appear on some of my relative's tables and sideboard during Easter and I get very emotional when seeing those – I did make them over 25 years ago, a sweet teenager at this time. Emboridered place mats, table runners and cushions are perfect little gifts – and you can support the busy Easter bunny and hide it.

You can use our embroidery patterns as well as designs and pattern for hama beads. You can hang fuse beads Easter egg pendants onto your Easter branches, decorate a gift an use the Easter eggs as gift tag.
By the way you can use wool to embroider and can directly stitch onto woollen crochet baskets or cross stitch on knitted pieces-

A very practical gift idea are consumable items like delicious food: jams and jellies, or pestos, relishes and chutneys, and your can decorate them nicely: decorating jam jars.
Especially for Easter we recommend as special little gift as well as as Easter dish: wild garlic pesto.
And here you can get to the printable for matching tags to your pretty pesto jars: wild garlic pesto labels to print out.
