Crafting fun: Easter treats

HEMA Easter treat

I love Easter – aside from getting the green light to scoff chocolate without the guilt trip (just me?), the arrival of Easter is associated with a new season, Easter hat competitions at school, bunny rabbits, daffodils and decorations.

I don't need a great excuse to create, craft or decorate, so when I discovered that one of my favourite shops, HEMA, is offering a huge variety of Easter sweets, treats, crafts and decorations, I had to capitalise on this…

And ta-da…here’s the final result…

HEMA Easter treatHow did I go about creating such a wonderful masterpiece I hear you ask? Luckily I made a note so you too can follow the step-by-step plans using HEMA’s wonderful goodies to take your Easter creations from drab to fab!

I first baked 12 cupcakes (using a great recipe from Twitter.com/CakeyBakeGirl


I put together HEMA’s Easter cake stand (£2.50)
– which was a piece of cake (pun intended!)

After placing the cupcakes on the stand, I (and my wonderful eight-year old helper), decorated them with the following accessories….

10-pack ‘Chicks on a Clip’ (£1.50)

Disclaimer: HEMA provided me with the supplies listed and priced above. But to be fair, these are items that (as a thrifty mum always on the look out for a bargain), I would have happily purchased myself.
