My boys are growing up too fast and are no longer interested in crafts. They are still interested in the Easter egg hunt but prefer chocolate eggs over dyed eggs. I’m on my own now!

DIY pressed flower Easter eggs – This Easter egg decorating idea is an easy and affordable project. All you need are eggs and pressed flowers. I used pansies because they are some of the best flowers to dry. They are small and flat and they seem to hold their colour very well.

I love nature inspired Christmas decorations. Wintry branches are beautiful on their own and easy to arrange in a tall, glass vase. They are even more festive when you decorate them. These Christmas birds are easy to make, a fun holiday project you can do with, or without, your kids.
