It’s almost Easter again, and I am so happy because Easter is my favorite time of year. Not only is Easter a wonderful spiritual time that denotes rebirth and new beginnings but we cannot forget how much fun we have at Easter making baskets, coloring our eggs and decorating them with brightly colored ribbons and jewels, and decorating our home environments in the Easter theme. With all the social distancing in practice at the moment, there is no reason at all that we still can’t create lovely Easter items, even if the craft stores are closed. That is exactly why I went searching on Youtube for the best ideas I could find that utilized materials that we may already have lying around the house that could enable us to still create lovely Easter accessories to decorate the home environment and cheer us up.
