Easter Sunday falls in April 20th this year and that’s plenty of time to get some Easter crafts ready to share as gifts amongst your family. Now spring’s here and the sun is out it’s a great time for crafting in the garden and with your Trabasack craft tray you have a safe and sturdy service to work from.
Tray Top Card Crafts
Giving and receiving cards shouldn’t be restricted to Christmas time. By collecting (or even creating!) Spring images along with some simple white card, you’ve provided yourself with all of the tools you need for some seasonally festive cards. Images should be bright and full of greens and yellows for a true Easter feel, or try something totally different to stand out from the crowd.
To aid yourself further in this craft, try a lap tray like the Trabasack; a spacious and wipe-clean surface to lay your materials out and piece them together with great comfort and ease.
For the more adventurous crafter, try a knitted or crocheted egg cosy – in the shape of a bunny! Simple patterns (and even intricate ones if you feel like a challenge) can be found online or in seasonal craft magazines, and this skilful display is sure to bring glee to any friends and family who pop by. Turn your Easter crafting into a social event by inviting friends to come round for a chat while knitting “bunny cosies” right there in their laps.
Make your own Easter Bunnies
A great way to get the kids involved is to give Easter sock bunnies a try. Simply lay out some colourful (the brighter and more patterned, the better!) socks in front of you, carefully fill them with dry rice and use a rubber band to tie the top. Round off the top to create ears, tie a pretty ribbon around the “neck” and stick on some googly eyes – and there you have it! Easy Easter crafts that don’t take too long, but look brilliant when finished. The zip-up pouch on the Trabasack is ideal for storing scissors, ribbons and other craft materials safely, and keeps them to hand when you’re crafting with your lap tray.
Here’s a quick tutorial for making your own Easter bunnies:
