    I love to find easter egg dying ideas using natural foods and plants to make coloring to dye the eggs and a lace tablecloths. My granddaughters and daughters love being involved in the project which becomes a fun family time.

    What do you craft 2 celebrate Spring? Spring to me always also includes crafts for the Easter holiday, St. Patrick’s Day and May day. For St. Patty’s day i once took a field of three leaf clovers & loosely filled 3 petri glasses and formed a 3 leaf clover underneath the clover i had drawn on bright green construction paper a more accurate ressemblence of clover and then placed the glass dishes on toop of it. otherwise i fill the apt with fresh flowers all the time and then made some butterflies out of pantyhose and bright color paint used craft wire to make the outline of the wings, a cigar for the body and coat hanger as its stand. also made butterflies out of the colorful thin spongey material& make those into magnets
