DIY: Easter Egg Hunt in the Garden

April 5, 2012

Repeat after us: this is not a contact sport. Elbows to yourself. No pushing the little kids, and—

hollow wooden Easter eggs via Etsy

Above: They’re off. Poor, unsuspecting lawn. As an alternative to plastic eggs, decorate reusable, hollow wooden eggs and fill them with prizes. A 3.54-inch Hollow Wooden Egg is $3 at Craft Paper Wood Shop via Etsy.

Above: The French Wire Egg Basket features handles that open and shut to cradle eggs. It’s $29 at Williams-Sonoma.

Above: Why does this Rabbit Candy Box look so cranky? And why does that make us love him more? Hand-painted German papier-mâché, he’s available seasonally and would make a lovely, if somewhat disapproving, centerpiece; $72 at Bell’Occhio.

Above: Personally, we’d rather find Quip Cakes than candy inside an egg; it’s a clever note pad with 150 tear-out sheets ($8.50 at Bell’Occhio).

Above: Nothing says “party” like bunting. Consider this Blue Mini Felt Bunting from Paint Robot on Etsy; $12.95 for 5 feet.
