Sugar Free Handmade Easter treats

With Easter just a few weeks away it is time to start stocking up on treats to fill up those Easter Baskets. If you are looking to include a few sugar-free, dairy-free options we have you covered. 

Hand made definitely tastes best so using the finest ingredients we have a few inspiring Easter treats guaranteed not to leave chocolate on your face. xx Aunt Jenny

Sugar-Free Eggs

These eggs are perfect for an Easter Egg Hunt when the little ones are far more interested in the game than eating chocolate. They can be reused each year and they also make great decorations around the house or on your Easter Bonnets. 

Ingredients:
Method:

Rub a egg size lump of wool together in the palm of your hands until the egg shape has formed and then using a needle dry felt some colour in spots or stripes over your eggs.

** Sugar and Dairy Free!!

Thumbs up for the Easter Bunny

Don't let the Easter Bunny get away this year! Finger puppets can be made with wet felted shapes over a resist or wool felt pieces - sew together and then needle felt and sew the details on. With a strand of black cotton for whiskers, you'll be hopping in no time.

Wonderfully Woolly Easter Bonnets

If you have children or grandchildren in primary school, chances are they will want to participate in the Easter Bonnet parade! A really quick and cost-effective way to cover a plain hat is to glue on some coloured sliver and attach needle felted decorations such as eggs, bunnies, chicks and ears.

Ingredients:
1x preloved hat from the opp shop.
1x pk coloured sliver
2x pieces of thin wire 
1x needle & thread
1x heaped Tbsp of LOVE

Method:
Using a button hole stitch to attach wire around the wet felted ears and then stitch them to the hat. Glue green sliver around for the band and attached a fluffy staple of white wool for the 'bunny tail'.
*My little guy here is a bit 'no frills' but he decided he liked the felt eggs and requested that I attach them and make more to go around the hat.
You could also make felt flowers using the TUTORIAL that comes FREE with our Deluxe Needle Felting Kit


Hold your head high with your handmade creation in this year's Easter Bonnet Parade.
