pixie hollow easter crafts

 

Today, I have three Easter craft projects inspired by Disney's Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast. All three are easy enough for you and your kids to make together, so hop to it! ;)

First up are these simple, but beautiful, terrarium Easter eggs.

All you need for these lovelies are clear plastic eggs, dried moss, and faux flowers. Simply fill the eggs with the moss and flower petals and they are ready to display!

 Next up are some fun NeverBeast Easter baskets.

To make these, you will need the following:

Tinker Bell, Fawn, and Gruff printables from Disney's site. (Fairy coloring pages here. Gruff mask printable here.)

Plain pail, bucket, or basket

Small craft scissors

Washi tape

All-purpose craft paint

Paint brushes or foam pouncers

To make:

Print the fairy and Gruff printables on cardstock.

Cut out the inside shape of each to make your stencil.

Tape the stencil to the bucket with washi tape (or other low-tack tape).

Dab paint over the image.

Carefully lift up washi tape and stencil to reveal the final image.

Let dry fully before using.

Once dry, fill with treats and enjoy!

String Easter eggs are the last craft project I have for you today. These are fairly east to make, if a bit messy!

Supplies:

Embroidery floss

Elmer's glue

Water balloons

Balloon inflator (optional)

Wax paper

To make: 

Inflate the balloons with the balloon inflator (it will save you so much time and light-headedness!)

Cut several arm-lengths of embroidery floss.

Pour some glue in a bowl and add a tiny bit of water to keep the consistency on the thin side.

Lay down some wax paper to set the balloons on when you are done putting floss on them.

Take a piece of floss and dunk it in the glue. Be sure to coat it thoroughly and then squeeze out the excess with your fingers (messy, but super fun!).

Arrange several pieces of floss around the balloon to create your egg.

Pretend you are in the second grade and pull the dried glue off of your fingers.

Set on wax paper to dry for several hours.

Once dry, use a straight pin or scissor point to pop the balloon (it makes the best crackling sound!). Carefully remove the balloon from the egg. 

Now, you are ready to hang up your eggs or display them in a decorative bowl or basket!

Add some joy to your Easter basket this season with Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast!
