Easter Egg Place Mat

Easter is right around the corner, as in this upcoming weekend!  Everyone will be sitting down to have an Easter meal with the family!  Why not brighten up the table with an Easter Egg Place Mat!   This one is made with Kunin Felt!
Materials needed:
Bright colored Felt (Kunin is my brand of choice!  I used Eco-fi Plus for the mat and ClassicFelt for the eggs and grass)
Sewing Machine
First, I cut several pieces of felt that were about 6in x 2in.  Then, I cut little strips to use as the decorations on the eggs.  I made some zigzag, some curvy and some straight.
Once I had them all laid out, I sewed the strips onto the 6in x 2 in pieces using my sewing machine.   Then, I cut out the egg shapes.  Once they were cut, I placed them on my Eco-fi Plus piece of Felt and then sewed them down.
grass and finish
With my green felt, I cut strips to use as grass.  I snipped the sides different lengths and then rounded the edges.  Using the sewing machine, I sewed down the grass.  I sewed a rectangle along the bottom of the grass, so that the fringe would move.  Once my eggs and grass were all sewn on, I did a decorative stitch around the outside of the mat.

This was a really simple project.  Perfect for beginners!   The kids will love it!

Kunin Felt Easter Egg Bunting

Easter is right around the corner!   Why not brighten up your decor with this adorable KuninGroup Felt Easter Egg Bunting!   It was super easy and super fun! Final
I love using my Sizzix Eclips2 to cut out patterns for fabric or felt!   cutting
Once my patterns were cut out, I pinned them to my KuninGroup felt and then went to cutting!  I used pinking shears to give the eggs zigzag edges! cutting out felt
Then, it was time to sew them!  I decided to stuff them while they were still under the sewing foot.   I sewed all but about 2 inches, stuffed them, realigned my edges and finished sewing! sewing
Once they were all sewn, I used Tulip Fabric Paint to add decorations to them!   I think they turned out egg-tastic!  🙂 tulip fabric paint
Using bright pink baker’s twine and a big needle, I threaded the twine through the top part of the egg, making sure to go between the felt and stitches. twine
And then, it was complete!!!  It is absolutely adorable!   Final
Hope you like my Kunin Felt Easter Egg Bunting!

Easter Saturday for us!

Since the weather is supposed to be rainy on Easter Sunday, we decided to celebrate Easter on Saturday with family.   Today’s weather was perfect, not too hot and it certainly wasn’t cold!!!  Grandma, Uncle Rhett and cousin Jory came over hang out and do some exciting things today!  Unfortunately Grandpa was at home sick.  🙁    A lot of this post will be in pictures because I surely took a lot, but I will also tell you a little about the pictures!!!

 We started our afternoon off with an Easter Egg Hunt.   125 eggs for three children was definitely enough!   The funniest part of our hunt was that there was a silver egg that was the prize egg and no one could find it.  It was the last found egg! DSC_0543 DSC_0551 DSC_0556 DSC_0565

After our Easter Egg Hunt, we decided to do some fun inside activities!  We did a “Guess how many jelly beans are in the jar”  guessing game!

Benjamin guessed 1 million!

Daddy won!   He’s such a smarty!  The total number of jelly beans in the jar was 148!  The prize for winning was the jar of jelly beans!  And because he is so nice, he decided to split the jelly beans between the three boys!

Then, we did a couple of Laura Kelly’s fun activity sheets (  The first one was a Spring Time word search!


Uncle Rhett helped Benjamin out!

The first one to finish got a Reese’s chocolate bunny!   Yay Jory!!!

The boys decided they wanted to spend a little time outside.  And what do boys love to do outside?  Play sports!   A mini football game!  I love Benjamin’s expression after hiked the ball!

Next, we did the jelly bean sorting sheet!


Benjamin worked so hard on his and was concentrating really hard!


Jory got all of his sorted and counted!




Benjamin was the only one to do the third sheet.  It was a Design your own flowers in the pots sheet!


Then there was a little time for a game of chess, well at least the start of one before dinner was ready!


After our lovely Easter dinner, it was time for  Easter Egg dying!  But mommy must be a complete idiot, because the directions for dying eggs doesn’t make sense….    It just says to add 3 tbsp of vinegar to the cup with the tab.  Well, 3 tbsp is not enough to cover the eggs.  And I couldn’t remember if I was supposed to add water to the mix or not.  But anyways,  I ended up just pouring more vinegar into the cups.  Hopefully our hard boiled eggs will not taste like vinegar!   It was fun though.  Grandma helped the boys with their dying!


While at BJ’s today, I spotted this yummy S’mores kit!   What a fantastic idea!   So, guess what dessert was?!?!


The kids love some S’mores!!!!   🙂


After a long day, a nice glass of red wine was necessary!


Now it’s time for bed!   Hope everyone has a fantastic Easter!
