It’s that time of year again where the pressure is on to decorate your home with bunnies, eggs and chicks, and in some cases (mine!) to knock up a winning Easter bonnet for the school competition with only a weekends notice. These are the days that I am glad I crochet!
If you are lacking some inspiration on how to decorate your home or school project then here is my Top Ten Easter Patterns
Make these in lots of colours and you have the easiest way to add a bit of Easter to your kitchen! Free pattern from Petals to Picots
Looking for more of a centrepiece then this intricate chicken is perfect. Create a few of these from Sarah Huntington and get your own flock going!
These are quite possibly my favourite thing in the world. I love chickens anyway but this set by Corrine Frieden would make amazing door stops for all round my house and not just at Easter!
If you don’t want to go too over the top with the decorations then these little coasters by Whiskers and Wool are a lovely little touch to add a to table setting. Create them in the same colours as your home decor to blend seamlessly
I don’t think there is anything cuter than dressing up your kids for the season! These little bunny hats by HeartHookHome are quite possibly the cutest Easter hats and I will be using the boys one as inspiration for my sons own Easter bonnet competition.
Planning an Easter egg hunt? Work these beautiful bags up for the kids to collect their eggs up in! I cant get over how amazing the appliques are on these! by Moji Moji Designs
Or for the bigger kids this sweet little bunny bag by Hobbycraft
As a crocheter I firmly believe blankets are an essential all year round! This super cute bunny blanket is would be great to add to your repertoire! (I have looked and looked and I can’t seem to find the owner of this pattern! If you know please let me know I would love to credit them)
Now if you have a son (like me!) who isn’t really into bunnies and chicks, these little dinosaur eggs by dsgngrl are great for keeping in with the theme and wont have them feeling too left out!
These traditional little egg covers by Ekte Lykke have been given a lovely twist using the tulip stitch. Great for beginners or if you want a nice little Easter project to teach your kids!
If you have a go at making your own version of these please share in our Facebook group here! I love to see everyone’s work
