Today marked day 2 of the March Break. Yesterday the kids pretty much trashed their rooms into complete disaster areas. Since I worked at home today, Amy kept the kids busy with some crafting. They played with clay and playdoh in the morning. After lunch they made:
Bunnies in the Grass
Painted Picture Frames
After I finished up work for the day, I did my own crafting! Amy and I have been eyeing different Easter decorations in the store and lamenting that they cost a fortune. I have always wanted to decorate for Easter but have never been able to justify the expense of it all. I get various crafting emails, and I found a crochet pattern for a really cute wreath. I absolutely love how it turned out!!
I have to make another one because we have double doors at the front, so tonight I will be crocheting more eggs as I sit in front of the television. Best thing about this wreath is that it cost me $4 for the wooden base, $2.50 for the ribbon spools (with lots leftover) and about $3.00 for the cotton yarn! Two beautiful wreaths for around $20.00.
Do you decorate for special holidays? If yes, how do you do it on a budget?
