No-sew Easter Kitchen Towels

Hi there! It’s Lydi from Lydi Out Loud, nice to see you again! I’ve been busy decorating and crafting for Easter and I’m excited to share my easy no-sew Easter kitchen towels with you today. DIY kitchen towels are a fun and easy way to add some holiday decor to the kitchen and these Easter kitchen towels are some of my favorites (along with my kitchen pun towels!) I’m embarrassed to admit here on The Crafting Chicks that this chick cannot sew. I’d like to try it someday but I don’t even have a sewing machine so for now, no-sew crafts are my jam!

Here’s how you can make some Easter kitchen towels of your own:

DIY Easter Kitchen Towels

Supplies

Directions

  1. Open the Easter egg cut file in Cricut Design Space and just the eggs to desired size. Each egg has been sliced into 4 pieces so that you can choose different colors/fabrics.No-sew Easter Kitchen Towels
  2. Cut out Easter egg pieces from pastel fabrics. To cut fabric with the Cricut, first apply Heat & Bond to the back of the fabric according to product directions (the paper liner facing up). Once cooled, firmly press the fabric (with the heat and bond liner side down) onto a strong grip cutting mat. Cut with a deep cut blade on the bonded fabric setting. Remove fabric from the mat and peel off the plastic liner.
  3. Remove fabric from the mat and peel off the plastic liner. Position the fabric pieces onto the Easter kitchen towel as desired. I added ribbon and trim to give some texture difference.No-sew Easter Kitchen TowelsNo-sew Easter Kitchen Towels
  4. Once fabric pieces are positioned, press with with iron set to medium heat to secure to the towel (use a lift and press motion with the iron to avoid fabric from shifting).No-sew Easter Kitchen Towels
  5. If you want to add trim to the bottom of your Easter kitchen towels, cut a 3″ strip of fabric to span the width of the bottom of the towel. Fold the strip in half and iron heat and bond onto the back of the folded strip. Apply a thin strip of permanent fabric glue to the front and back of a strip of fringe or pom-poms and place inside of the folded strip of fabric. Fold the fabric closed to attach to the fringe/pom-poms. Remove the liner and iron the strip onto the towel. No-sew Easter Kitchen TowelsNo-sew Easter Kitchen Towels

Fill the wine glass with your orange candy about halfway.

Then pop your cupcake in there on top of it to look like a cute little carrot!

Loaded with colorful sprinkles and carrot cake kisses, this easy no-bake Carrot Cake Easter Bark is a fun dessert to make with the kids or package up for yummy Easter gifts!

Carrot Cake Easter Bark is an easy, no-bake Easter dessert that is perfect to make with the kids!

Hey everyone! Keri here from Shaken Together. I am a working mom of two teen boys, wife of almost 17 years, list maker, sandal addict and lover of no-fuss food and easy entertaining! I love stopping by each month to share a fun recipe with you. And I totally think this Carrot Cake Easter Bark is pretty fun … I mean, it is loaded with sprinkles and has bite sized pieces of carrot cake kisses pressed into smooth swirly white chocolate!

Carrot Cake Easter Bark! This is so cute, colorful and a super easy Easter dessert!

If you’ve been around for a little while, then you know how much I love candy bark. I’ve shared Worms & Dirt Chocolate Bark for Summer and Milk & Cookies Bark for Christmas … and now, Carrot Cake Easter Bark!! You only need a few basic supplies to make a a big pan of this easy Easter dessert.

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • White chocolate chips, white/vanilla candy melts, vanilla Candiquik, etc.
  • Green candy melts
  • Sprinkles – I used carrot shaped sprinkles, white jimmies, orange and green Sixlets and green sugar
  • Carrot Cake HERSHEY’S Kisses (If you haven’t tried these yet, they are dangerously delicious in the best possible way. Oh, my YUM!)

Make Carrot Cake Easter Bark for Easter! This easy no-bake dessert is delicious and so easy!

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This makes clean up easy and allows the bark to peel away when you’re ready to break it into pieces. Unwrap and coarsely chop about 12 – 15 carrot cake HERSHEY’S Kisses. Melt the chocolate/candy melts according to package directions. Spread the melted chocolate into a large rectangle on the parchment lined baking sheet.

Carrot Cake Easter Bark starts with a big pan of melted white chocolate!

Melt the green candy melts (I used a mini drizzle pouch) and add a few puddles of green chocolate. Slowly swirl the green chocolate into the white chocolate.

Carrot Cake Easter Bark gets a swirl from melted green chocolate ... get ready for sprinkles!

Once the chocolate is swirled, add the chopped carrot cake kisses and then go to town with sprinkles! This is the perfect job for little hands 🙂

Carrot Cake Easter Bark is loaded with colorful sprinkles and carrot cake Hershey's Kisses! What a cute no-bake Easter dessert!

I absolutely LOVE the pops of orange, green and white … perfect for Carrot Cake Easter Bark! Allow the bark to cool completely before handling. (The warmth of the melted chocolate will soften the kisses slightly, so if you allow the bark to cool, they will keep their shape in the bark.) Once cool and set, break the bark into pieces.

Carrot Cake Easter Bark is perfect for Easter gifts - break it apart and package it in cello bags for a sweet treat!

Package this Easter treat in cello bags for gifts, pile it on a cake stand for pre-dinner nibbling or leave it with a glass of milk (or carrot juice?) for the Easter Bunny!

Carrot Cake Easter Bark is an easy, no-bake Easter dessert that is perfect to make with the kids!

Here are a few more fun Easter Desserts that are Bunny approved!!

Loaded Carrot Cake Dip - an easy no bake dessert from Shaken Together!

Bunny Face Strawberries! Dip bright ripe strawberries in white chocolate and create sweet faces with sprinkles! This is the cutest Easter dessert!

Adorable Mini Edible Easter Baskets from Shaken Together!

Can’t wait to see you all again next month … in the mean time, I’d love it if you would stop by Shaken Together and say hi!!

Easter Treat Box Printables

Hi! Before we jump into these fun and simple treat boxes, I wanted to introduce myself since this is my first time posting as an official contributor to The Crafting Chicks. My name is Amy Robison. I’m a graphic designer who loves to throw parties for my kids and friends. I am an extreme extrovert and absolutely love to be around people. I have enjoyed crafting and creating my whole life. Designing parties and small gifts is my favorite because it is a way for me to combine my love of people and crafting. You can find my parties and holiday designs on my blog, or if you happen to have a Silhouette cutting machine, you can find my designs on their website too.

I am excited to show you party crafts each month, and can’t wait for you to download these free Easter treat boxes to create for a fun party or gift for a friend. When I design parties, treat boxes or any other printable, I like them to be as easy as possible to put together. I don’t have time to cut and glue a million pieces together for a project, and I know you don’t either. Getting more than one use out of a project is always a bonus too. You can use these treat boxes for party favors, gifts to friends and family, or to hold office knick-knacks in. It would also be fun to use them in an Easter scavenger hunt and place each clue inside. These Easter treat box printables really are so versatile.

Hello Crafting Chicks readers! I am so excited to be sharing my inspirational quotes, printable bookmarks with you today. I’m Michelle from Michelle Lea Creative, photographer and graphic designer living in Northern Virginia.

I adore books and their beautiful papers, fonts, graphics and words. You can find books stacked up and displayed all around my house. It makes me feel smarter and more organized by it all haha, but I fail miserably at actually finishing a book. I don’t know about you, but I am constantly falling asleep in the middle of reading…. so a bookmark is an absolute must for me when reading. My days are constantly going full throttle and constantly worrying that I could be missing out on life with my family, missing out on growth opportunities for my business, and missing out on taking care of myself. I think that this is a very common endless worry that women and Moms deal with. When brainstorming design ideas for the bookmarks, I decided to use two inspirational quotes that would remind me to enjoy the moments in life.

“Let me love you a little more before you’re not little anymore.” Ohh this one tugs at my Mom heart. We have three children ages 3-15 and those little moments go by so quickly. Luckily the fleeting moments are replaced by new moments to cherish and enjoy.

“Be patient with yourself nothing in nature blooms all year.” We are constantly bombarded with apps on our phone, social media, email, 24 hour news, and constant streams of how we should be doing more and conquering the world… and how we should be multi-tasking and having it all. At times we forget that we are meant to have seasons of rest and stillness.

Inspirational Quotes: Free Printable Bookmarks
Inspirational Quotes: Free Printable Bookmarks

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Click HERE to download your inspirational quotes free bookmarks. Download completely to make sure you have the highest quality file to print.
  2. Print your bookmarks on white cardstock on highest quality setting.
  3. Finally, you can either use your bookmarks as is or laminate them to help them last longer.

I truly love being honest and real and hope that these bookmarks speak to your heart and remind you to enjoy life and give yourself some grace throughout the year. I would love to see how you use your bookmarks and would love it if you come by and say hi on Instagram. You can find me here posting daily about the messy and beautiful little pieces of life.

Enjoy!

-Michelle

Magnetic Chore Charts for Little KidsMagnetic Chore Charts for Little Kids

Hello! I’m working on establishing a morning routine and chores with my 4 year old, but found that the same charts I use for my older kids just don’t work for her. Unlike her brothers, she needs pictures to help her know what she needs to accomplish.

Magnetic Chore Charts for Little Kids

The icons are simple and you can adapt them to be what you need them to be. For instance, the place setting could mean eat breakfast in your house or it might mean clear you place and put your dishes in the sink/dishwasher. There are 4 different color options available for you to download for free at the bottom of the post. There are 2 charts per page. The half page is the perfect size to fit on these galvanized metal hangings that I found at Michaels. They come with the holes and twine already to go on and are only $3.99. I found them over by the unfinished wood and project section, so I think they should have them for a while. Before you scroll down to grab them, let’s talk about these cute magnets!

Gem Stickers

Magnets

I found these gem stickers at Michael’s, but don’t be fooled by the word stickers. Yes, they are sticky but the outside ring is wood with the brightly colored gems stones inside. These are the most durable stickers I’ve ever seen. To turn them into magnets I simply pressed them onto 1/2″ magnets. My original plan was to attach them with E6000, but the adhesive was strong enough to not need to bother with it.

Gemstone Magnets

They are super functional, while still looking great on our chore charts! If you aren’t able to find the fun gemstone stickers we have a great tutorial on how to make your own magnets.

 

Magnetic Chore Chart

If your children are a little older and able to read we have an editable chore chart in our Shoppe you can hop over and grab. It has space for 10 chores, so everything they need to get done can fit. Just open it up in Acrobat and change the chores to fit your needs.

Chore Chart With Pictures

 

Chore Chart With Pictures

 

We have many other chore charts available you may want to check out, as well as a list of age appropriate chores so you know what you can expect to add to these charts!
