Easter Craft Ideas

Happy Easter to you and all your loved ones.

I hope you’re well, and are managing to find comfort and joy at home.

Easter is lovely time to make colourful seasonal creations featuring bunnies, chicks and chocolate. Here are some of my favourite creative Easter craft ideas to inspire.

This is my virtual greeting card design for Easter 2020. The Easter bunnies are enjoying their chocolate egg dwelling which is blooming with tulips. The family have made a fun helter-skelter slide, and will be delivering brightly wrapped house shaped chocolate treats over the Easter weekend.

I’ve created a colouring sheet of this artwork, you can download this at the end of this post.

Painting eggs is a classic idea, but gives beautiful effect. Hard boil the eggs and then paint with acrylic paints, the ones pictured are metallic. The eggs make a lovely table decoration for your household Easter celebration. You could try painting with food colouring if you want to still eat the eggs afterwards.

This was the Easter greeting I created for Easter 2018 – tulips, chocolate, a chick and a bunny.

If you have a space hopper you could bounce around a set course or route and time the races. Great comical fun.

This was a nice family activity from a few Easters ago, to make egg shapes to hide around home or the garden, fried eggs for fun and they are more difficult to find as they camouflage on pale surfaces. You can re-use polystyrene and cardboard from packaging.

This fun Easter decoration was at head height in the cloakroom and transformed everyone to the Easter Bunny as they washed their hands.

This cute little guy was digitally imposed into this egg design as my Easter greeting for 2019. Cute as any bunny to me.

I created this illustration for the local tennis club last year. What would an Easter greeting based on your favourite sport look like? You might like to draw this.

You can download and print this colouring page at the link below. I’d recommend coloured pencils or fine felt tip pens, as there are a number of small areas and details. For best results you might wish to try using just three or four Easter colours.

I hope you enjoy this. If you’d like to share it please use the hashtag #inspirebykim

Instagram Highlights – Springtime

Here’s the latest spring brights from my Instagram. This is one of my favourite times of the year as I love the colours that start to appear in nature and in Easter related marketing.

Here’s the Easter message I created firstly in watercolour and then developed digitally.

Loved ones moving inspired me to create a new home card using paper.

An evening sketch walk in historic Warwick led to a series of juxtaposed sketches which together became a scene.

I created a short Ripl video for my Facebook page including my favourite paper art. See more paperart at the link at the foot of the email.

Joining the #illustrateapril challenge prompted a number of art pieces illustrating, “What spring means to me”. image 351

I love tulips so they featured in each of the pieces, one was a painting, one a pattern as though the spring flowers are radiating, as the sun does in spring.

I worked with watercolour shapes to create a series of motivational illustrations using simple characters.

This is my favourite of the illustrations and hopefully this is representative of how my art and illustration practice rocks forwards.
