Easter Crafts

Easter crafts are one of my favorite items to make. Valentine’s day is over so it’s time to prepare for spring! I love spring, I think it’s because I hate winter so much that I’m ready for new life and warm weather.  Today I’m sharing 5 Easter crafts. The best part is that these crafts are so easy and cheap to make you can use Dollar General supplies. You’ll find the supplies listed below each item.

When I started thinking about Easter crafts, I realized what I love is the adorable little animals that are always associated with the Easter.  Therefore, you’ll find bunnies, chicks, and birds all featured below. I’m also giving away free templates to help you make each of the adorable animal items below. You can download the bunny, chick, and bird shapes over on the Journey Junkies page. If you’re not a member, sign up here, it’s free!

5 Items to Make with Dollar Store Supplies

1. Bunny Banner

First up is this adorable bunny garland. For this, you can download our template or make your own.  I used cotton balls to give them a bit of dimension.  Simply print on different colors of construction paper, cut out, and string together. Easy done!

5. Bunny Clothespins

Finally, these bunny clothespins are too fun.  Use the same bunny template that you used for the banner, just size them smaller.  Add cotton balls for a fun little tail on the bunny.  You can spray paint the clothespins if you want them white like mine.
