Something handmade by you is always a delightful talking point for observant visitors. Give these fun Easter crafts a go over the long weekend.

1 Decorate eggs

If you can get hold of them, duck eggs are a lovely substitute for hen eggs, with shells that vary in colour from soft sage to chalky blue and creamy white. Or replicate these hues by colouring a white shell with diluted food dye or artist’s ink. Blow out and clean the shell first so your handiwork lasts for longer. (Find out how to do this here.)

2 Bird’s nest

Abandoned bird’s nests are little treasures of construction and look wonderfully whimsical containing decorated Easter eggs. If you can’t find any, store-bought bird’s nests are readily available from craft and florist suppliers – weave in natural touches such as moss or twigs to make them look more realistic, and add colour with dyed twine or string. Or make your own using packaging straw.

3 Cute cut outs

Photocopy (in colour) vintage-style floral fabrics, then stick the printed paper onto both sides of a piece of sturdy craft board. Cut out silhouettes of Easter emblems such as chicks, eggs and bunnies. Your shapes can be placed inside a glass picture frame to overlap a larger image for a layered appearance, or attach string or ribbon and hang them up. These also make for sweet take-home gifts for guests to use as bookmarks. Laminate them to ensure they last a little longer.

4 Pimp your egg

Take an egg from farmyard to fab with the addition of stick-on rhinestones, available from craft and stationery stores. Don’t stop at just one strip of glitz – why not embellish the entire egg with a sparkly smattering of colourful rhinestones in different colours and sizes?
