Yes, Easter is my favorite DAY not just my favorite holiday. It represents the hallmark of my beliefs. I grew up when churches shared Easter Sunrise Service, mostly my mom did not wake us up for that But she attended so she could make preparations for the day. By the time she got home the ham was ready to come out of the oven and the macaroni was going in. The Easter Baskets for my twin sister and me were set out and we marveled at them while we got ready for church. ( We had to wait till after church to eat the bunny) The dyed eggs were served as deviled eggs and we enjoyed bacon, eggs and biscuits with jam and molasses. Some times a few slices of ham would make it's way the breakfast table.
My older brother and sister helped us get ready and we all took photos atop the coverlet spread car. I remember a cover-- but there's a photo we are without it.
I am celebrating this year by gifting small treats to 42 of my co-workers-- the women may get this bunny gift topper and the men a carrot box. I will make a dozen kids Easter baskets and I will decorate a parking field with paper flowers for the church Easter Egg Hunt and I also plan to make giant paper flowers for the Easter program.
All to celebrate the RESURRECTION and the LIFE.
I just made this Bunny topper from some dark green dyed coffee filters and a scrap piece of foam core.
- A bunny embellished candy container topper.
9. I found several bunny applique stickers and Styrofoam bunnies that were the right size- about 2".
- I used a cut off Deer Park water bottle,
- box cutter
- foam core,
- dyed coffee filters,
- greening pin,
- white glue,
- small glittered Styrofoam eggs
- 2" bunny stickers
- scrap paper- to cover the sticky part of the sticker.
- and scrap Styrofoam for this project.
I am making at least 21 of these and they will all be different since I found various bunny sticker and foam bunnies.
