Last Minute Easter Crafts

"Scrambling" around at the last minute to fill your eggs? Or basket? Spring and Easter always tend to sneak up on me (even though they visit about the same time every year) and I find myself looking around for things I can create out of supplies I have on hand.

Whether you need last minute Easter basket fillers or sweet handmade gifts, we have free patterns and craft ideas that can be created with stuff you probably already have in your craft drawer! Here's a few to get you started.

Hoppy Easter Crafts!

Easter is one of those holidays and times of year that just make me smile to think about. Not only is Easter a sacred holy-day for many different faiths, but it is also a wonderful time to pause and appreciate all of the signs of Spring.

Birds returning to your trees, a few types of flowers just peaking through the soil and animals (kids too) frisky with the prospect of getting outside to romp and play! Just so you aren't left out, I've collected a few Easter patterns for you to have fun with too.

Spring Is In The Air!

Can you smell it? Grass turning green, leaves peaking out from trees and a few flowers poking their little heads up! Spring is in the air and I love it! I love all the seasons but the turning of Winter to Spring always fills me with such hope and anticipation for new life and new growth.

We have some pretty great crafts and activities just for you, inspired by Spring. I've featured just a few here to get you started. Visit our Spring/Easter crafts page for even more creative inspiration!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Bluebirds and knitting patterns abound! Okay, so I don't really have any bluebirds. But I do have some fun free patterns to share with you. And that's almost as good as birdies. In honor of St. Patrick's Day and spring, we added some pretty patterns for knitting and crochet projects - just for you!

Now is the time to knit or crochet something soft and green, not just to "Get Your Irish On" but also to keep you looking fabulous and festive in case you should run across a stray leprechaun or two!

St. Patty's Tam

Crocheted Shamrock

I included the last one from our archives because some of you are still harboring snow in your neighborhood. Be safe, take care and create something crafty with a free pattern from Craftown! Connect with us on Facebook to share more crafty ideas and receive inspiration!
