Easter is right around the corner. Create your very own Harry Potter Easter eggs to add some magic to your holiday.
If you’ve been a reader of the blog then you’ll know that I love the Harry Potter series and that I love scrapbooking supplies. What better way to intermingle the two things I love and create a stellar project with just some Harry Potter Washi Tape and some wooden Easter Eggs. These Harry Potter Easter Eggs are perfect decor because they don’t spoil!
When I was told that I would be on the Harry Potter Design Team with Paper House Productions, I was extremely excited. I love seeing where this little blog takes me and it also gives me an opportunity to share with you the products that I love.
This Harry Potter scrapbook line is perfect for any wizard scrapbook layout or a simple enough Easter craft using some wooden eggs I got in the Target Dollar Spot. Read on to see how easy these were to make.
Time needed: 2 minutes.
Harry Potter Easter Egg Craft
Wrap your Wooden Eggs in Washi Tape
Start with a clean wooden egg and start your tape at the base and wrap around to cover the entirety of the egg.
Use the smaller, thinner Harry Potter Washi Tape rather than the wider tape. The thinner one allows more of a snug adherence and the edges won’t lift like they do in the image below.

These monthly free SVG files myself and other bloggers have offered have been a huge hit with all of our readers. We’ve created everything from Christmas mugs, Valentine t-shirts, and cute tote bags all with our free SVG files.
Lay your HTV on the mat shiny side down. This carrier sheet will hold your entire image together for you. After you’ve cut, remove any unwanted HTV from the carrier sheet.
Prepare your toddler t-shirt for the HTV by preheating your fabric. This will remove the moisture from your fabric and allow the HTV to stick better and not lift.
Using a folded towel on a sturdy surface is perfect for pressing the HTV to your shirt. Do not use an ironing board. It is too bendy in the middle (that’s a term) and it doesn’t allow even heat to be distributed.
Follow manufacturers instructions on the heat settings so that you can be sure to get the right seal of the HTV.
That’s it! Grab the 16 FREE SVG files below from each blogger. These are available for personal use only.
I found some laminated vinyl at my locals Michaels near their small section of fabric. It came in a roll that is 12″x47″ and is perfect for laying it on my cutting mat. You can absolutely cut non-laminated burlap but I like this because it won’t fray after I cut it.Cut your pennant shapes out of the vinyl using the rotary blade and your pink fabric mat. I have used my other mats with my rotary blade and I haven’t had any issues. It may dull the rotary blade a little faster but I try to save the fabric mat for items that won’t leave a lot of fuzz behind.Next cut out your bunnies. You can use different colors of Iron-On Vinyl or just one color. Another fun material would be felt. Just back it with some Heat n’ Bond and use your rotary blade to cut it out as well. Since this design is essential the same, I didn’t worry about mirroring my image. If you do letters or words, be sure to mirror your image. But you do need to make sure that you place the Iron-On right side down on your mat.Use your EasyPress or your Iron to secure the image onto the burlap. Use it on the foil setting at 385°F for 25-30 seconds. Be sure to warm your burlap before to wick out any moisture that may be there. Moisture and applying vinyl do not go hand-in-hand.Now just weave your banner through some ribbon and hang. I like to add junque bows in between my letters so that they don’t bunch together and I can control the spacing.
I love this burlap Easter banner and it’s going to go up every year!
Have you ever wondered what materials your Cricut Explore and Cricut Maker can cut? Today I’m going to show you how to create an easy easter bunny craft using a cereal box and your Cricut.This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
The new Cricut Maker has a setting that you can choose cereal box. It was insanely easy and all you need in addition to the materials that come with your Maker is the Deep Cut Blade. Click on the link to the Design Space file above and it will take you to the file to make this exact bunny and bow. Just size it however you want it.Begin by cutting all your materials. For the cereal box, I chose to have it do a double cut just to insure a clean cut. To do this all you have to do is not unload it. Once your image has cut just press the go button again. This will be sure that the lines are cut on the same spot. If you unload it and then try to cut it again, your images will not be cut exactly like before.I had some cotton balls on hand and just glued it to the tail area. I did the same with the cardstock bow. I used Cricut Cardstock in Rose and used the fine point blade and did a double cut as well.Just place your Easter Bunny craft wherever you want and it’s the perfect addition to your holiday decor. Check out what other bloggers have done using cereal boxes and their Cricut below.
Learn how easy it is to personalize Easter eggs using your Cricut Explore and the Print then Cut method in Design Space. This post does contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
This is such a fun and easy way to personalize Easter eggs using your Cricut Explore. Just use the Print then Cut feature and you’re set. I grabbed some eggs from the Dollar Spot at Target and then the wheels started turning.
I like to use the printable vinyl when I’m putting the stickers on a non-flat surface because it’s thinner and more pliable.Once you’ve opened the Cricut file with the images already sized for you, select Go. It will bring up a print and mat preview and then select Go again. Go ahead and load your printable vinyl into your printer and then select that green print page button. The print prompt screen will show up and go ahead and print the paper like you normally would a regular image.Load your printed vinyl onto a mat and set your smart dial to vinyl. This will give it the perfect kiss cut that all stickers need. Once your mat is loaded, select the go button and the Cricut will now start reading your registration marks and then it will begin cutting.Unload your mat and get your eggs ready. Just peel and stick the stickers right on there and you’ll have the perfect personalized Easter eggs to enjoy throughout the holiday. And since they’re plastic, you can enjoy them next year too!

Oh my gosh! These are so good and not too overly sweet. Our kids love these as a fun Easter snack. I’m going to show you how to create your own Peeps Rice Krispie Treats for Easter. Use the sugary marshmallow treats to create your own Peeps Rice Krispie Treats.
Supplies for your Peeps Easter Rice Krispie Treats –
Begin by melting one package of Peeps, 1/4 cup of butter and 2 cups of marshmallows. I used the microwave to melt the ingredients together and once it came out, I gave it a good stir. Next, add 2 cups of Rice Krispie cereal and mix it well. You’ll then pour it onto a 1/4 sheet pan. To press down the treats easily, wet your hands a little. It’ll make the mixture not as hot to the touch and you’ll have no marshmallows stuck to your hands afterward. Allow the mixture to cool and cut out as many bunnies as you can. I got 8 out of each 1/4 sheet pan.
Now take your black writing gel and place three dots to represent the eyes and the nose of the bunnies. Now they look just like giant peeps and taste delicious. You’re going to get more servings, obviously, if you just cut them into squares but it’s fun for them to be cut into mimicking bunnies to match the Peeps. Sometimes I find Peeps overly sweet because of the sugar coating so I’ve found that mixing them with more regular marshmallows makes them more tolerable to eat a larger amount. Who cares, it’s Easter and Easter is the perfect time to have Peeps Rice Krispie Treats.

All opinions are mine alone. #KreateMyHappy #CollectiveBiasI’m so excited for Easter and another treat I love are Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats. How fun are these Rice Krispies Spring Flowers? They were so quick to make and my daughter and I had a blast making them. All we needed were some additional mini marshmallows and M&M’s. Get your kids into the kitchen and start creating! Of course, you can’t start creating until you run to your nearest Target and get all the goodies first though…
So I grabbed a small biscuit cutter and cut some circles, really only the size of $.50 pieces. I placed some JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows into a small microwaveable cup and nuked them for 20 seconds. This was my glue! I just dipped one end into the cup and them places the M&M’s into a flower pattern onto the Rice Krispies Treat.
So now you can create whatever shapes and letters however you’d like with Rice Krispies Treats because hey are having an awesome contest that everyone will be able to show off their creativity.

In our city, our extended family has always lived on the same block, I know! My grandma cooks for us and we all go over and have a big buffet with all the cousins, aunts and uncles. Afterwards, we go into the field next door and hunt for Easter eggs. My generation knows the tricks, always shake them or go for the light ones, they have the money. It usually tends to be a competition between my brother and I, which one of our kids can get the most money since now we’re to ‘old’ to hunt, lol.So for our own little family, I wanted to start a new Easter tradition and Disney has some fun things for all my kids to be satisfied with. For Leila, she wanted FROZEN, what child hasn’t loved that movie lately? Walmart has some of the best selection for Easter this year to fill those baskets for your young ones.
For Siaki, I went with The Avengers theme because he loves Hulk and Iron Man, he always has. When he was a little boy, we bought both boys those giant Hulk gloves to box each other. We still sometimes bring them out because they just need to inflict some pain on one another once in a while.For the F man, we went with the classic Star Wars. Granted, they didn’t have as many things in the store for Star Wars, but he’s always been a huge fan and we can just binge watch those movies for days. He’s always been into those movies and that really what the best thing about Disney is, they are classics and everyone enjoys them. “If you can dream it, you can do it!” – Walt DisneyNow, let me know what your Easter traditions are and what you plan to put into your Easter baskets? I’d love to hear!
