Fun with Easter Bonnets (Second Edition)

in_your_easter_bonnet_by_cherishedmemories

Last year, I did a post on Easter bonnets which has received a great reception, even to this day. So I decided to do another Easter bonnet post for this Easter. While the one above might seem like a crazy Easter bonnet to some, keep in mind that this picture was taken at a time when such large hats were in style like the turn of the 19th century. But while Easter bonnets have been a long standing tradition, it’s only been recently that they’ve become the Easter equivalent to the Christmas sweater. And in some major cities like New York, it’s not unusual for people to parade the streets in their wildly outrageous Easter hats. And believe me, a lot of them are so big that make you wonder how they manage to deal with neck pain afterwards. Because those hats must be a lot of trouble to keep your head up. Nevertheless, a lot of these people who wear such hats usually make their own because they might find it fun. And as you see while a lot of these have Easter themes, some of them have a special creative spin. So for your Easter reading pleasure, here is another treasure trove of wacky and wonderful Easter bonnets.

  1. Some people eat chocolate eggs while others use them for decoration.
Man, that's a big waste of chocolate as far as I'm concerned. But at least the stuffed bunny is adorable.

2. Sometimes it helps to go simple and start small.

This one has a headband as well as a sparkly bunny and eggs. Still, love the bow.

3. Well, this hat’s sure becoming a real bird’s nest.

Sure those are pom pom chicks. But they really seem to be making a mess in that rabbit hat.

4. Of course, it helps if your hat is surrounded by chicks.

Yes, the pom pom chicks are hanging from the hat. But at least they're there for the portrait.

5. Seems like she’s wearing a bird’s nest this Easter.

Well, the look is intentionally anyway. But the birds and eggs seem to be of different colors.

6. How about some carrots on your porkpie?

This seems to be an easy Easter bonnet look as you see. Just add carrots to a porkpie hat and you're good to go.

7. On a purple Easter bonnet, you can’t have too many lilies.

Nevertheless, I wish I could see the whole hat but part of it was cut from the photo. Sometimes you have to do with what you have.

Well, egg Easter bonnet anyway. Still, not sure how someone should wear this thing.

12. It’s not an Easter bonnet without the rabbit ears.

Then again, the tradition of outrageous Easter bonnets might predate the ugly Christmas sweater. This one certainly comes from the 1950s.

As I'm aware, Angry Birds seems to be a popular motif for Easter bonnets. This is especially pertaining to boys.

Easter Candy No One Likes in Their Baskets or Eggs

FYF-855

Like Halloween, Easter has a long tradition pertaining to candy. After all, it’s what most kids find in their Easter baskets or inside their eggs (assuming they’re the plastic ones that open). And there are plenty of candies associated with Easter alone. I always enjoyed Easter egg hunts as a child whether it was in the front yard during the morning before church or at my grandparents’ house. I also participated in at least one in college. For a long time, egg hunts were one of the big reasons I looked forward to Easter as a kid. However, once I reached a certain age, it was time for me to bow out, especially since I’m the oldest of 24 grandchildren. And my participation wouldn’t be fair as an adult in a childish activity. I do help hide Easter eggs in my grandparents’ back yard for Easter and maybe help some of my cousins find the eggs. But somehow it’s not the same. Not to mention, since I’ve outgrown my eligibility for the Easter egg hunt at my grandparents’, Easter has become considerably less enjoyable for me since I’m mostly stuck socializing with relatives. Nevertheless, I can talk of all the Easter candies I like such as the chocolate bunny. But you’d probably be bored out of your mind that I wouldn’t get many views. So instead I’ll focus on Easter candy that most people don’t like. So without further adieu, I have this list for you. This has nothing to do with nutritional value but mostly quality of taste or whether it’s appropriate.

  1. Pez- This candy is basically the poster child of products that aren’t as popular as their packaging. I mean the only reason why people buy Pez is because of the dispensers. But you’ll find nobody on earth who’d admit that these pocket size pills are tasty.

2. Marshmallow Peeps – Don’t get me wrong, I do like peeps. Just not for eating. However, these are just inedible sugar coated marshmallows that are basically inedible. At least they’re great for decorating and making amusing dioramas out of for annual contests. And they should be better used that way. That or putting them in the microwave to watch them explode, but let’s be honest, the end result might not be good for your microwave. The Houston Press has a different view, “We’ll be honest. These things? Terrify us. Spun sugar masquerading as multi-neon-colored marshmallow doesn’t come close to existing in nature. Therefore, it shall not exist in us. We shall henceforth refer to them as Creeps.”

3. Marshmallow Carrot- From Houston Press: “Oh, come on. Mock carrot candy even makes vegetarians want to barf. Who was the brains behind this idea? Perhaps it was an entrepreneurial parent’s way to bait-and-switch a finicky child into eating more veggies. Too bad they suck, and now the kid hates candy, carrots and Easter. What’s next — Broccoli fluff? Good grief.”

4. Fluffy Cotton Tails- From Houston Press: “These things are basically the candy form of Jolt Cola: monstrously disgusting sugar bombs. An entire bag of cotton candy boiled down into bite-sized nuggets for you and yours. Avoid them as if your life depended on it.”

5. Cadbury Crème Eggs- From Houston Press: “Remember the commercials in which the Easter Bunny gives birth to the Cadbury Crème Eggs? And then they open them up to reveal sugary, yolk-colored innards? Yeah. We still have nightmares, too. How these things have stayed on the market for so long is one of life’s greatest mysteries.”

6. Jordan Almonds- From Houston Press: “Hey kids, who wants to break a tooth? Because that’s a distinct possibility when you bite into an accursed Jordan almond, a tasty-sounding treat that’s simply an almond coated in sugar. Too bad the sugar coating tastes more like chalk than anything found in a kitchen, and the almonds contained within are generally flavorless. The reason they’re considered an Easter candy even though they can be purchased year-round is that they’re pastel-colored. And that’s about it. I guess they’re sort of egg-shaped, too, but in reality, Jordan almonds have about as much to do with Easter as a pebble. (The pebble might taste better, though.)”

7. Bunny Munny- I remember getting these as a kid. They’re basically chocolate coins with rice in them. But they don’t taste particularly great. Someone at the Houston Press commented, “This treat is particularly offensive to me because it masquerades as something delicious. Chocolate with a bit of crispy rice in it? What could possibly be bad about that? How about the fact that they unfortunately taste more like cardboard with a slight chocolate flavor than actual chocolate? They purport to be made with real chocolate, but if that’s true, why do they taste so unfortunate? And can we talk about how offensive that spelling of “munny” is to anyone older than 10? Don’t purposefully misspell candy names to be cute! No one thinks it’s cute! Sidenote: On the Candy Warehouse website, there is actually a disclaimer, ‘Sorry, these treats are not a valid form of U.S. currency.’ In case you were confused.”

8. Bunny Basket Eggs/Easter Hunt Eggs – From Houston Press: “Brach’s is perhaps the worst offender on this list, bringing us three of the ten worst candies, direct from their testing and manufacturing plant in some faraway land where no one has taste buds. Bunny Basket Eggs are the least offensive of the three, featuring, essentially, fake gummy marshmallows surrounded by a coating of bad jelly bean. They stick in your teeth. They melt in your plastic eggs. They get awkward jelly bean coating color on your fingers. And what do you get for your trouble? Nastiness. Pretty much just a hunk of sugar that tastes like artificial fruit and giving up.” Marshmallows and gummy bears are a disgusting combination.

brachs-bunny-basket-marshmallow-easter-eggs-wmm-125236

9. Jelly Beans- I used to get these a lot on Easter, too. And to me they’re just kidney shaped colored candies that seem to have absolutely none to a horrible taste. It’s like they put some flavor and color to some waxy and rubbery concoction. Disgusting. The ones in my basket usually went to the garbage. Yes, I know there are plenty of people who love jelly beans. Yet, but to me that’s like saying that plenty people like John Wayne, Twilight, Fifty Shades, Fast & Furious, or reality shows. Just because something might be popular doesn’t mean it’s good.

10. Chocolate Cross- Yes, I know we celebrate Easter to recognize Jesus’s resurrection after his crucifixion. But while I love chocolate on any holiday like Easter, there are just things that shouldn’t be in chocolate form. A cross should be one of these things because that’s what Jesus suffered and died on. Not to mention, crucifixion was an execution method in which ensured the victim would endure a long and agonizing death through bleeding and suffocation while being nailed to a large cross of wood. Jesus went through this and it wasn’t pleasant at all. Yes, I’m sure Christians are willing to buy foodstuffs like this for their kids’ Easter baskets, but is it really appropriate? And as a practicing Catholic and a chocolate lover, such cross would lead me struggling with temptation, followed by guilt after eating it (as well as relishing in its taste), if I ever received one. If you want to raise your kids as good Christian children, I suggest good Christian parents go with chocolate eggs and bunnies instead. Sure they’re secular symbols but they come with a very low risk of committing accidental sacrilege.

11. Brach’s Chicks & Rabbits – From Houston Press: “These are the items I as a child most dreaded finding in Easter baskets or stuffed unceremoniously into plastic eggs at parties. What would I do if someone presented me with a bright-orange hunk of eraser disguised as candy? Would I feign delight and eat it anyway, then risk melodramatically gagging and spitting it out at the feet of my gracious host? Would I tuck it away to later slip to a poor, unwitting canine? Would I throw it nonchalantly into someone else’s basket. I honestly don’t remember what I did with the damn things, but I guarantee you I didn’t eat them. Fool me once…and all that jazz. The flavor is listed as “marshmallow,” which, if you believe the multitude of flavored-vodka products out there is, in fact, a genuine flavor. But these don’t taste anything like marshmallows. They’re essentially the same material as those off-putting orange Circus Peanuts candies–soft so long as they’ve never touched oxygen, but instantly hardening into toothbreaking plaster once exposed to the elements. Worse still, the candies only vaguely resemble the eponymous chicks and rabbits. They’re much more akin to totem poles or idols used for some bizarre, decidedly not Easter-y ritual. Consume at your own risk.”

12. Easter Candy Corn – You got to be kidding me. They actually have this? These sugar wax candies aren’t even great on Halloween, let alone on any other holiday like Easter. Not to mention, they even look more disgusting in pastel colors.

13. Nerds Bumpy Jelly Beans – All right, that just makes jelly beans more disgusting as by giving it grotesque growths. Also, kind of look like fruity brains.

2315461869_b96551f56d

14. Wonka Hoppin’ Nerds Candy- From E!: “Nerds are definitely a solid candy choice, unless they are called “bumpy” (see above). But they don’t really scream “Easter.” They do scream “capable of cracking a filling,” but whatever.”

wonka-hoppin-nerds-candy-132148-im11

15. Lindt Chocolate Carrots – From E!: “Fancy chocolate for when you want to feel better after eating 20 Butterfinger eggs (more on that later). But this candy is only special because of the wrapping, not because of the taste.”

Lindt-Chocolate-Carrots-Easter-Treat-0

16. Whoppers Easter Mini Robin Eggs- Oh, I remember getting these from egg hunts. Lovely to look at and have hard shells that they don’t need wrappers. However, they tend to taste a bit crunchy and chalky. Also, can be mistaken for Cadbury Mini Eggs, so check wisely.

17. Chocolate Covered Peeps- From Paste: “To say that chocolate-covered Peeps are not aesthetically pleasing would be a gross understatement—they look like something your insolent dog might leave as a surprise in your loafers for daring to challenge his authority. The chocolate coating is terrible. The artificial, gummy marshmallow inside isn’t much better. These Peeps went a long way toward turning Paste editor Josh Jackson against the idea of chocolate-coated marshmallows in general, which would be great, if there weren’t three or four more of the exact same style of candy on the table.” In other words, they’re saying that these aren’t much better from their disgusting sugar coated marshmallow counterpart and resemble dog turds. At least in chick form for the latter.

18. Little Beauty Chocolate Bunny- From Paste: “The worst pure chocolate on the table, this thing was so bad that it made us scan the ingredients list, where “cocoa” is the fourth ingredient—after “sugar,” “vegetable oil” and “whey.” Because you definitely want more sugary whey in your chocolate than actual chocolate. So sugary that some of our teeth manifested spontaneous sympathy cavities in protest.”

Little Beauty Milk Chocolate Bunny.png

19. Frankford Marshmallow Chicks and Bunnies- From Paste: “A big multi-bag where all the marshmallows are stuck together into one mass you get to pry apart with your hands” is not the most promising origin for Easter candy, and indeed, this was one of the least pleasant things on the table. They’re simple, you can say that for them. It’s just a bag of simple, pastel-colored, really awful marshmallows. Make of that what you will.”

20. Reese’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs- Now while Reese’s might have a reputation for making their holiday shaped candies shaped like turds, at least they’re tasty. Yet, you wouldn’t want to eat one from the ground in a dog park. However, I’m not sure if white chocolate and peanut butter should even go together. And it’s said you can barely taste the chocolate to begin with.

reeses-white-chocolate-eggs

21. Sour Watermelon Peeps- I’ll let Paste explain these since I’ve never been near such candies. From Paste: “Oh no. Oh NO. What in the hell are these things? We thought we had seen weird and objectionable, and then along came the watermelon-flavored Peeps. We’re disturbed by the very idea of the concept’s genesis—who in their right mind looked at the marshmallow of a Peep and thought that pink, artificially watermelon-flavored sludge would be a great way to improve it? This person needs to be locked up. If he or she is walking among us, then society is not safe. The mere fact that Paste Music/TV editor Bonnie Stiernberg seemed to oddly enjoy these Peeps (in opposition to everyone else) is cause for suspicion and alarm.”

22. Palmer Hollow Chocolate Flavored Bunny – Yes, it’s a very cute chocolate bunny on the outside. However, its taste is bound to disappoint you once the stuff is in your mouth as described akin to milk powder and peanut shells. Candy Blog called this, “the Easter equivalent to a lump of coal.”

palmer-bunnies-photo

23. Twizzler Easter Grass Candy- It’s supposed to be green apple and unlike other Twizzlers, it’s presented as loose and tangled like grass or as if everyone touched it. But those at Time Out Chicago said it’s taste could range from pesto pasta, paste-a, or medicine.

24. Bunny Poop- These are little balls chocolate covered cookie dough which would taste great that come from a wind up pooping rabbit. It’s inspired by the plastic wind up chicken that lays eggs. Nevertheless, it’s on here because of the cookie dough which is uncooked food which may taste great but it’s not something you should eat. And I mean because it’s teeming with E. Coli bacteria which has led to death. For instance consumption of uncooked pieces of the famous Nestle Toll House cookie dough sickened several dozen people and killed one woman in 2009. Now a candy’s nutritional value is one thing that I can let slide, but food safety is a whole another matter. And any product that contains raw cookie dough should be avoided. Seriously, for the love of God, don’t eat cookie dough raw.

25. Hershey’s Easter Kissables- Think of Hershey’s kisses covered in pastel wax, which don’t melt into your mouth but greasily slide down your throat. Well, that was only in 2005 and 2006. In 2007, Hershey’s decided to swap cocoa butter, chocolate, and cane sugar with corn syrup as well as palm, shea, and sunflower oil. Also, these were topped with an ominous sounding “resinous glaze.” Such ingredient suggestion led the FDA declare Hershey’s Kissables as unqualifiable any longer as “milk chocolate.” They were yanked in 2009. Now if anyone finds package of these horrendous candies, they’re most often used as substitutes for game pieces.

2310886034_359479e6e8_z

26. Carrot Cake M&Ms- From Carl Anthony Online: “There is no real chocolate in this chocolate, of course. Following the same course of poor choices with “white chocolate,” these Easter specialty version of the beloved M&M are unusually dry (like cake lacking moisture!), the only discernible flavor being a vague aftertaste of sour cream (does this suggest the “white chocolate” has spoiled?)” He suggests if they were sold for St. Patrick’s Day as Irish Crème, nobody would know the difference.

27. Carrot Cotton Grape Candy – From Carl Anthony Online: “Made exclusively by Bunnyland Candy, there’s potential for a whole new world of Easter Candy possibilities by the innovative use of the ephemeral spun sugar sweet which is ubiquitous still at carnivals, fairs and circuses. Carrot Cotton Candy makes sense enough as the famously favored food of rabbits, Easter or otherwise. Stuffed into this cellophane bag shaped like a giant carrot, you’ll find sticky, fluffy cotton candy colored in an earthy tone of orange. Yet, oddly, its flavor bears no discernible similarity to the earthy vegetable. While perhaps that’s a blessing, it would seem logical enough that the pleasant taste of “orange” would be a good match. Inexplicably, however, its flavored grape.

28. Hotlix Candy- For over 25 years, this company has made candies with real insects in them now coated in fruit flavoring. Yes, real deceased insects and I am not making this up. But they don’t exactly yell out “Happy Easter!” Nor are they something to put in a kid’s Easter basket. However, they might be a fine addition to a Halloween trick or treat bag though.

29. Wasabi Candy- For those who don’t know, wasabi is the Japanese name for what we call horseradish, which we put on burgers. Nevertheless, this candy does exist, but it’s not something a kid would want for Easter. As Hello Giggles notes, “In general, yes – wasabi candy exists. And I can’t think of any holiday that it’s appropriate for, unless you want to inflict punishment on somebody. If you put these monsters in your child’s Easter basket this year, you’re just asking for a meltdown.”

30. Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans- It’s from the Harry Potter collection. However, unlike regular jelly beans, these ones don’t pretend to be disgusting. And I mean they have every flavor. Sure some might be pleasant but they also have earthworm, earwax, vomit, and booger. Definitely not Easter basket material, unless those of diehard Harry Potter fans.

61EAIgPBVpL._SX425_

31. Edible Easter Grass- Yes, it’s supposed to look like grass and taste like fruit. But it’s very strange. Sure you can use it for Easter baskets to put candy in it. But that’s like having candy on top of your candy.

32. Ghost Pepper Candy- Since it was called the World’s Hottest Pepper in 2007, I suppose any ghost pepper candy is bound to burn in anyone’s mouth. Might be great for adults but kids would be crying after consumption.

ghost-pepper-candy

33. Chocolate Gold Jesus- From Hello Giggles: “The Chocolate GoldJesus is more of a work of art. This certificated, high quality, fairly traded, organic chocolate aims to donate profits to charitable organizations, which is fantastic. Also it’s Easter related. So what’s the issue? Well, I’d have a really hard time eating this. I’d almost feel bad. I’d think of numerous excuses to save my Chocolate GoldJesus for a special occasion, but no occasion would ever be good enough. And I don’t think I’m alone, since the company has since offered a bronze statue (non-edible!) that’s made in the same cast as its chocolate counterpart.”

34. Zombie Bunny Lollipop- For the record, with the popularity of such shows as The Walking Dead, this one was more or less made for adults. I mean there’s too much blood. Also, it tastes like cotton candy.

Zombie-Bunny-Lollipop

35. Russell Stover Eggs (Wedding Cake, Birthday Cake, Birthday Cake, and Cookie Dough or anything other than conventional flavors)- The cake flavored ones are said to taste like butter inside chocolate. But those at Time Out Chicago think they come with a weird aftertaste and are all gritty in an unpleasant way. Best stick with chocolate, marshmallow, peanut butter, caramel, brownie, and fudge, Russell Stover.

36. Jolly Rancher Bunny Food Gummies- These gummies are shaped like veggies and are supposed to taste fruity. Taste has been likened to stuff like corn syrup, chemicals, and floor cleaner. Let’s just say rabbits wouldn’t want these.

jolly-rancher-gummi-bunny-food

37. Strawberry Chocolate Bunny- Why the hell would anyone make something like this? Chocolate bunnies should only come in 3 flavors milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and vanilla for those allergic to chocolate. This is disgusting. As Carl Anthony Online notes: “In truth, the Strawberry Easter Bunny has all but disappeared, some reported sightings on back road grocer shelves made by shady confectioners. Luckily, among those colorful critters more readily ferreted out are made to order from precious candy makers using purer ingredients than in past decades – and astronomical prices.”

38. Sour Bunny Jolly Rancher- From Paste: “Like a lot of sour candies, these twists on a jolly rancher are more interested in being sour than in delivering the original intent of the product (deliciously artificial fruit flavors). We can’t imagine any scenario where regular Jolly Ranchers wouldn’t be considered superior.”

jolly-ranchers-sour-bunny-gummy-candy-ff-130699

39. Jelly Bean Nougat- Okay, jelly beans and nougat, that’s pretty disgusting in my book. Dear Brach’s, I hate you.

image (1)

40. Black Jelly Beans- From Mommyish:” The packaging on a bag of all black jelly beans should really read: For the people who hate joy. There’s something so sad and disappointing about digging through all that plastic grass and coming up with a dry, black jelly bean.”

61t1zxA2joL._SX425_

41. Spiced Jelly Beans- From the Stranger: “For those of us who like a candy that tastes lightly poisoned, Easter season is a dream, thanks primarily to Brachs’ Spiced Jelly Bird Eggs, a disgustingly intoxicating melange of seven different flavors of jelly beans riding the yummy/gross divide. Some are so gross I have to throw them out, but others are so delicious I eventually buy another bag.”

image (2)

42. Mallow Pals Squeezable Marshmallow- Said by one blogger, “Everything about this candy makes me sad. It does not taste good, and it is the lowest common denominator of candy. It is goo in a tube that you squeeze into your sad, disaffected, post-modern mouth. This candy indicates we are living in a post-candy world. Candy is dead, long live candy.”

7016769479_79f0a3ed05

43. Mystery Peeps- From Delish: “Much like Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, you won’t know if these Peeps are fruity, savory, salty, or sour until you taste them! Whether that game is fun or terrifying, we’ll leave it up to you to decide.”

81X2q+DGLnL._SX522_

44. Zombie Chocolate Bunny- Great to have during an Easter apocalypse for yourself. Not so great for a child’s Easter basket. Also, more suitable for Halloween. And is more of a mockolate flavor, too.

chocolate-zombie-bunny-20110420-113620

45. Mary Sue Vanilla Butter Cream Eggs- From In Papa’s Basement: “In order for Cadbury Creme Eggs to exist, there had to be Mary Sue Butter Cream Eggs. Their filling is vile and extremely adhesive, rendering it impossible to gnaw off the chocolate coating without getting some of that venom in your mouth. Trying to eat their shell without ingesting any of the putrid cream contained within is the candy equivalent of a beautiful woman inviting you to bang her…so long as another dude rides shotgun anus. Things will start off okay. And then, at some point in the act, your scrot is going to brush against his. At that moment, as your innocence goes up in flames like Bill Compton on a Cabo San Lucas beach, you’ll realize you paid far too high a price for far too little reward.”

46. Gum Drops- Said to be the fruitcake of Easter. Not sure why these candies exist since they’re not really that tasty. More like something to decorate gingerbread houses with around Christmas. Other than that, I can’t be sure what else.

gum-drops

47. Bunny Teeth- These are gummy bunny teeth. Probably an attempt to rip off the gummy teeth concept of Halloween. It’s as morbid as it sounds.

gummy-bunny-teeth-easter-candy-packets-37_645a

48. Religious Suckers- Sorry, but despite Easter being a significant holiday celebrating Jesus’s resurrection, it’s not the time to remind children that they were born in sin. That’s the job for clergy and Sunday school teachers who probably let them know beforehand. Besides, it’s not appropriate for Easter for He has risen on that day.

49. Quax- From Gourmet Gift Baskets: “This yummy ducky (really, it says that on the package – as if that’s enticing) is a complete and total horror. It looks like Ernie’s bath time buddy, but it’s edible. (Well, maybe. It depends on how you consider okay to eat.) Boldly going where no others have gone before, this Easter treat has paved the way for milk-flavored candies everywhere. Now, I know what you’re thinking: what would a milk-flavored treat taste like? Like pure evil. So it’s no wonder that Quax remains the only candy of its kind.” Best used for scaring and traumatizing a small child or Ernie.

50. Bunny Chew- Because nothing looks more fun for kids than food that resembles either bunny pellets or dog chow.

Bunny-Chew-Treats-Kids

51. Naughty Bunny Chocolate Bars- Let’s just these are adult candies and not suitable for children at any rate. Brought to you by Bloomsbury.

Naughty-Bunny-Chocolate-Bars

52. Inspirational Jelly Beans- Yes, Easter is a religious holiday. But does that mean putting inspirational stuff on jelly beans appropriate for the occasion? That might be bordering on sacrilege.

Inspirational-Printed-Jelly-Beans

53. Walking with Jesus Fruit Snacks- Yes, walking with Jesus is an inspirational thing. But making fruit snacks out of his sandals? Not so much. Hey, look I know that Easter is a religious holiday and I know it has candy. But can you just give Jesus some respect and not put fruit snacks of his sandals in Easter baskets?

Walking-Jesus-Gummy-Treats

54. Crucified Peep Candy Cross- Yes, that may look cute. But is it really appropriate for an Easter basket? Not sure if it borders on sacrilege and bound to cause offense. Inedible sugary marshmallow offense.

Holy-Peepus-marshamallow-pe

55. Rabbit Change- Easter styled chocolate coins with carrots on the foil? No thanks. Chocolate coins are the work of the Devil.

rabbitchange

56. Russell Stover Coconut Nests- More or less resembles some jelly beans being lodged in dog turds. Also, combines two things I hate.

425402d0d9370d5ca88347f6ddfbaf88

57. Vegetables – Yes, you might want your kid to eat healthy. But this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ditch candy and fill your kid’s Easter basket with veggies. Easter candy is an Easter tradition for God’s sake. There may be a place for veggies in your kids’ life but the Easter basket is not one of them.

58. Sour Patch Jelly Beans- Just when you think they couldn’t make jelly beans worse they had to make them sour. Also, sour candies are just terrible anyway.

x354-q80 (1)

59. Raisins- Sure they may be healthier than chocolate. But that doesn’t mean you should put them in a kid’s Easter basket so they’d mistake them for chocolate chips. That would be cruel.

810193934-1

60. Candy Canes- For one, they’re for Christmas. Second, put them in an Easter basket, and your kids will know that you’ve had these for months and probably have become entangled in some financial emergency.

18lp9oit3w8l9jpg

61. Camel Balls – Sure they may not be that bad, but you don’t want to give your kids a sour candy that has a camel’s testicles on the packaging. More like candy sold at Spencer’s Gifts at the mall.

camel_balls_2

62. Dingle Bearies- These are chocolate covered gummy bears. It’s a slightly offensive name but pretty disgusting.

dinglebeariesfront

63. Caramel Apple Peeps- From American Fun Fact of the Day: “To those of you not sold by our convincing argument of “ew, apple Peeps sound gross” let’s try this on for size—close your eyes (well, metaphorically—you kind of have to have your eyes open to read the rest of this) and imagine eating a Peep. Now imagine washing that down with a nice cool glass of apple juice. That gag reflex you just experienced is your body telling you that this is a horrible flavor for a Peep to have.”

desktop-1438801378

64. Candy Corn Peeps- All the great taste of Halloween sugary wax and sugary Easter marshmallow rolled into one.

candy-corn-peeps

65. Blue Raspberry Peeps- From American Fun Fact of the Day: “As an artificial flavor, blue raspberry is an affront to nature. We feel like it’s silly to point out that blue raspberries aren’t an actual thing that exists in nature, and that this is just a catchall term for kind of sweet, kind of tart food flavoring that tastes distressingly “blue” and is primarily found in syrup poured over ice, except for the fact that we can guarantee that at least, like, 25% of Americans totally think that blue raspberries are a real fruit.  But even the mouthbreathers who believe that can take one look at blue raspberry Peeps and say, with complete certainty, that they would rather drown in a silo of sugar before eating these monstrosities.”

61c1zwTV2FL._SX466_

66. Orange Delight Peeps- From American Fun Fact of the Day: “The fudge dipped Peeps are an abomination in their own right, but orange marshmallows dipped in orange fudge just seems like the worst combination of anything. Again, this is a simple matter of passing the “how do these ingredients, separated, seem like they would taste together.”  So sure, if you’re the kind of person that likes take bites out of an orange in between your Peeps, well, you’re a sociopath, but even you would have to draw the line at adding “orange flavored fudge” on top of all that.  We feel like we can’t say this enough—Peeps are not made to taste like fruit.  Stop trying to make them taste like fruit!”

orangeDelight_detail

67. Lime Delight Peeps- From American Fun Fact of the Day: “And also, who wants to eat lime fudge? No one, that’s who.  Lime fudge sounds like something your friend who moved to Germany primarily for sex parties would be into, and when he asks you if you “like lime fudge” you’d just sort of pretend like you know what he’s talking about and be like, “You know, I tried it once, but I just don’t think it was for me” before your friend rolls his eyes and calls you a cis.”

limeDelight_detail

68. Peeps Milk- Oh, for God’s sake, Peeps, do you have to make a sugary marshmallow monstrosity such as this? For the love of humanity, this is just the most inedible milk ever. Available in marshmallow, chocolate, and eggnog.

HT_peeps_milk_01_jef_150305_4x3_608

69. Carrot Cake Candy Corn- What the hell, another Easter variety? Seriously, nobody was asking for this. Hell, nobody was asking for candy corn for Halloween.

70. Easter Ring Pops- If Ring Pops are terrible as a Halloween candy, then Easter styled ones wouldn’t be great at all for an Easter basket.

Do the Bunny Hop in These Ugly Easter Sweaters

Snapshot_20160225_8

This is me in my pastel color turtleneck sweater that I’ve had for almost a decade. It’s not necessarily an Easter sweater nor is it ugly. But for a post like this, it’ll do. I’ve also did a pair of rabbit ears for good measure.

Since Easter is widely considered a spring holiday, it’s normally not associated with sweaters. But since Easter falls in early spring like in March and April, sometimes the weather could be rainy, cold, or erratic. And it’s not unheard of in my area to snow on the holiday which I have personally seen at least once. Yet, weather conditions aside, it appears that the lure of the ugly sweater is so great that they just have to have them for Easter as I’ve searched the depths of Google Images and Pinterest for them. And they are as charmingly ghastly as you’d expect with bunnies, eggs, chicks, and other motifs for your heart’s content. Not to mention, they’re in the pastel spring colors associated with the holiday, too. Some of them I’m wearing in the picture you see above if you get my drift. If you were a kid, you’d probably have seen them on your elementary school teacher. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you a treasure trove of some of the tackiest Easter sweaters around.

  1. Remember flowers must always be in their boxes at all times.
Hate to say this, but the cardigan would looked much better if the flowers weren't boxed in. Then again, ugliness is kind of the point.

2. On Easter, periwinkle always makes a bold fashion statement.

And this has bunnies at the crease as well as chicks with feathers on them. And some that don't.

3. Nothing makes a better Easter motif than a bunny carrying an Easter egg.

For some reason, that bunny looks a little sad as if Easter is a day of dread. Still, I think the egg is pretty.

4. Nothing is cuter on Easter than a sweater vest of bunnies in boxes.

And it's black so the bunnies stand out. The boxes also contain carrots and eggs for added tackiness.

5. Nothing makes a better Easter sweater than a cardigan of different colored bunnies.

Each row of bunnies is of a different color. But not all are facing the same way. Also, not sure about the light green sleeves.

6. Those who might think ugly Easter sweaters are too girly, might be fine with this bunny one.

This one is black with blue trim and a row of bunnies. Then again, Easter has never really been a manly holiday to celebrate anyway.

7. Those who love lambs and daffodils, have I got an Easter sweater for you.

This one is in the same style as some ugly Christmas sweaters you see. But this one has a more spring theme.

8. On any Easter sweater, you can’t have enough eggs, flowers, or bunnies.

This light blue one uses some degree of sequins to stand out. Also has short sleeves which is odd for a sweater. Then again, Easter takes place in spring.

9. You can always tell it’s an Easter sweater if it has bunnies on it.

Not sure of what to think about this sweater. The bunnies don't seem to look happy. But it's certainly tacky that I'll give it a space on this post.

10. Looks like these rabbits love to munch on the garden veggies in this patch.

Sure this might make a great scene for an Easter sweater. However, it's something you really don't want to see in real life. Trust me.

11. Of course, in mild weather you can always go with an Easter vest like this.

This one consists of a bunny in basket, Easter eggs, flowers, and other things. Nevertheless, it's incredibly tacky.

12. Sure it may seem like an ugly sweater, but check for chickens and bunnies to see if it’s for Easter.

This one has 2 rows of chickens and one row of bunnies. And the bunnies are all facing with their cotton tails.

13. Of course, there are some people who might prefer geese.

This one has geese in the top right corner. Yet, it's trimmed with blue gingham and pink roses.

14. To make the bunnies and eggs stand out, go with navy blue.

Yes, I know a lot of these contain Easter eggs and bunnies. But that's what you'd have to expect sometimes.

Yes, I know a lot of these contain Easter eggs and bunnies. But that’s what you’d have to expect sometimes.

15. On an Easter sweater like this, each item belongs in their respective columns.

This one has 2 columns with chicks and eggs as well as 2 with bunnies and carrots. But somehow this sweater is cute and tacky at the same time.

16. If you love funky colored animals, this is the Easter sweater for you.

I guess the chicks are silver, the bunnies are purple, the pigs are yellow, and the lambs are pink. Still, not sure if it's the kind of ugly Easter sweater I'd wear.

17. Seems like this rabbit is taking a walk with his dog on a lit street.

Of course, normally dogs are bigger than rabbits and tend to eat them. And believe me, I've seen this happen.

18. Sometimes on Easter, you have to stand out with some bright colors.

Yes, I know that a lot of Easter stuff tends to have pastel colors on them. This sweater tends to be an exception as you see. But still kind of an eyesore.

19. For a fuzzy cotton tail, may I suggest white feathers?

Not sure if feathers is appropriate for a bunny's cotton tail. But it sure makes this sweater look rather horrific.

20. For a simple design, why not go for a bunny with bows?

Sure those may not look like bows. But I'm sure this sweater is bound to be Easter appropriate in its own way.

21. On Easter, remember how much bunnies love flowers.

This one seems to depict fuzzy bunnies holding flowers. Some side by side.

You can barely see the pink in this turtleneck. But the row of bunnies certainly stand out.

The Eggscellent World of Easter Egg Dioramas

sect_easter_sugar-eggs_ea09c

While I was looking for stuff pertaining to Easter craft projects, I came across some Easter egg dioramas. For many years, the idea of making little Easter scenes has been some sort of tradition since the Victorian Era. So much so that there are now egg dioramas that now pertain to Christmas and other occasions. And I’m not kidding on this one. Nevertheless, most of these egg dioramas don’t use real eggs. Because obviously, opening real eggs make a mess and eggshells break very easily. In other words, they’re terrible for craft projects. Also, many of the bigger eggs are illegal like those of ostrich. So most opt for other materials like sugar, paper mache, etc. That way, people are able to work with something that’s dry both inside and out, doesn’t make a mess, or breaks easily. Also, with such materials, the egg can be any size you want. And as you see, many of these egg dioramas come in a variety of sizes and openings. However, unlike the pumpkin dioramas I showed you back in October for Halloween, these eggs usually contain a rather small space for decorating. Yet, as with a lot of craft projects and dioramas, there are plenty that can get rather elaborate. Don’t ask me how that is. In this post, I’ll introduce you to the world of these kinds of projects by showing ones I’ve found in places like Pinterest or Google Images. So without further delay, I bring you to the eggscellent world of these dioramas for Easter.

  1. A hollow egg can always serve as an abode for a fairy princess.
Not sure how they got those kind of windows in this one. But it really lets the light in for you to see.

2. What better place to build a nest than near a birdhouse?

This is a cute diorama. Love the little birds and flowers. Not sure whether the birds are supposed to be babies though.

3. Sometimes an egg can be more than what it seems when you look inside.

Yes, this egg might seem pretty outside. But inside, it's a world full of flowers with 2 bunnies facing each other.

4. So that’s what Tinkerbell’s home is supposed to look like.

For the record I'm not a fan of Peter Pan and think it's overrated as a Disney movie. Still, this diorama is very well done.

5. In this egg, you will find a fairy on a  beautiful unicorn.

So it doesn't have much to do with Easter. But neither does Tinkerbell. But I think this one is cool. So it goes on the post.

Some of these decorations come from vintage Easter cards. A couple have fake flowers in them.

12. For Lord of the Rings fans, this egg won’t disappoint you.

Well, this is of Arwen in Rivendale but you get the drift. Still, if I found an egg diorama of Gandalf the Fellowship, Gollum, or any hobbit, I'd gladly show it.

13. An Easter egg diorama like this could always use a couple of chicks.

And by that, I mean fluffy baby birds you want to hold in your hand. Because after all, they're a common motive for Easter.

I'm sure the rabbits here were cut out from some kit. And it looks crowded. But it's adorable.

17. Sometimes a sugar egg is just as lovely outside as inside.

A lot of these eggs are made from sugar with icing decorations. But that doesn't mean that you should eat them, though.

18. A lamb in grass always seems like a welcome sight.

On Easter, the lamb has a sacred tie to Passover as a sacrifice. And since Jesus died on the cross to redeem our sins, one of his nicknames is, "Lamb of God." Also, lambs are adorable.

19. Never thought I’d see a lavish Victorian home and carriage inside an egg like this.

20. Seems like these two are out and about on a lovely spring day.

And if they live in the American South, their furniture probably has slipcovers. Because lovely furnishings need protection from people's sweat because they wear heavy outfits unsuitable for warm weather.

21. Why use Easter grass when dried flowers and moss would do just fine?

This looks very pretty. Nevertheless, I like how it opens from the side. And how the flowers and moss give it an authentic touch.

22. Those wanting to be someplace warm might enjoy this egg diorama of Hawaii.

Sure many people might view tropical islands as paradise. But to me, I see it as a hotbed of tropical diseases and mosquitoes. Still, love the tiki statue and shell though.

24. Who’d expect to find anything in a golden egg but a singing angel?

Not sure if this egg is for Christmas or Easter. Then again, since both are Christian holidays, it really doesn't matter either way.

25. As everyone knows, spring is always a time of flowers and butterflies.

The flowers might be made out of paper and flowers might be fake. But it still looks as if you're close to the scene, doesn't it?

32. While growing up, who can remember hearing the story of the princess and the pea?

Of course, they could've saved a lot of trouble to determine whether she was a princess and just do a bit of a background check. Or consult a genealogist. Also how could feeling a pea make you unable to sleep? Doesn't make sense.

Yes, this is another Arwen and it was apparently made by someone with too much time on their hands. Yet, it's sure pretty if you ask me.

Easter Greetings from the Days of Yesteryear (Second Edition)

vintage-easter-greeting-card_19-141896

As we all know, Easter is the season in which motifs of eggs, lambs, chicks, bunnies, and other cute stuff pertaining to spring. And it was not much different back then as it is today as you might see from vintage cards like this one above. Well, this one has a religious theme but that’s beside the point. However, last year I did a post on vintage Easter greeting cards which was quite successful. I know it’s not really a thing nowadays, but that doesn’t mean people don’t send greeting cards for holidays. Because according to Hallmark’s figures, there’s a following that certainly does. Nevertheless, since my post on vintage Easter cards was relatively popular, I decided to go ahead with another edition. Yes, these cards contain chicks and bunnies. But that doesn’t mean you’d want to send them to your loved one. For if you’re looking for an Easter greeting card to send to your loved one, try Hallmark because this isn’t the place for you. In fact, you wouldn’t send cards like these to anybody, other than to someone you hate. These cards aren’t warm and fuzzy with sentimental stuff on them. Rather they’re ones that make you scratch your head thinking why the hell did they think it was a good idea? Some of them might be inappropriate, offensive, creepy, or just plain weird. So for your viewing pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of vintage Easter greeting cards.

  1. “Rosalie, will you do me the honor of becoming Mrs. Bunnykins?”
Yes, the forbidden love affair between Rosalie and her mutant bunnyman was one of utter devotion, passion, and garden vegetables. Luckily he was a snappy dresser.

2. Ever tried to get around on an egg bike?

I don't think an egg bike is a good idea. For one, eggs aren't circular. Second, they're easy to break.

3. There’s nothing on Easter like smoking a pipe that blows out colored egg bubbles.

Now this seems like some card designer had spent too much time on the brown acid. Also, doesn't help that these are kids and one of the eggs has a bow.

4. “Mind if I pop in at your birdhouse?”

Sure this is a French Easter card. However, it seems like the guy in this is kind of a creep of the future sex offender sort.

5. For Easter, this little angel is responsible for taking care of the flower children.

Okay, this gives a whole new meaning to the word "flower children," which seems were created by someone who's had too many psychoactive drugs at the time. And let's just say, these make hippies look normal.

6. “Row faster, I think they’re still on to us.”

Seems like these 2 rabbits have stolen some colored eggs from the chicken coop. No wonder the hens are after them.

7. “How would you like your egg, Peter Cottontail?”

I'm sure the artist's intention was of bunnies dying eggs. But looking at this, I can't tell whether they're dying eggs or cooking them.

8. Nothing captures the spirit of Easter than a couple rabbits harassing young children.

What the hell did the bunnies just do to make the kiddies cry? Man, they must be very mean to pick on little kids.

9. Happy Easter from the kids in the eggshell car.

I don't think that kid's even legal to drive. Then again, it's not like they had a driving age at the time.

10. It’s not Easter until you get a visit from the egg people.

And I thought the little Santa kids were creepy. These are incredibly terrifying.

11. There’s nothing on Easter like seeing 2 chicks drinking a beer.

Man, these chicks sure drink a stein of beer. Wonder what goes on with drunk chicks. I mean baby chickens, not girls gone wild.

14. Now, little bunnies, sit down and behave yourself for your instructor Mr. Hooter.

Okay, I think the school made a very big mistake hiring the guy. I mean he's a certified predator. And I don't mean a sexual predator either. I mean he's an owl which is a bird of prey. And is known to eat rabbits.

15. On Easter, it’s not unheard of for a witch lady to emerge with a clutch of colored eggs surrounded by dancing bunnies.

"Yes, dance, dance, my pretties. Soon, the midnight hour will be upon us. And I will make you clean my house."

“Yes, dance, dance, my pretties. Soon, the midnight hour will be upon us. And I will make you clean my house.”

16. When a chick can’t hatch on its own, it’s up to babies with hammers to break the eggs and help them.

For one, babies shouldn't have hammers for obvious reasons. Second, what if banging on the eggs actually kills the chicks? Seems more like the reality to me.

17. Of course, Easter wouldn’t be without an angel bestowing good wishes.

I guess this is the kids guardian angel. And I think she has her work cut out for her. I'm sure nothing good can come out of that one harassing the Easter Bunny.

18. Aww, little kitty cat wants to play with the chickies.

Wait a minute, this cat wants to play with these chicks before it kills them. Not a settling thought but a biological fact.

19. Seems like there’s a croquet tournament among the woodland creatures on Easter.

And it seems like Mr. Owl is eyeing the squirrel lady as she takes a swing. He's thinking about taking her into an isolated location and devouring her.

21. There’s nothing on Easter than a parade of naked babies with flowers.

22. “You’re always welcome into my eggshell home.”

I'm sure this woman works as some part time prostitute or something. Also, why is the winged cherub in an egg cart being pulled by a rooster?

23. Nothing makes Easter than a baby standing on an egg carriage pulled by sheep.

From Cheryl Pierson: "Okay, my mother instincts are yelling, screaming, "GET OFF THAT EGG!" (I have to confess, this reminds me of something my son would have tried.) Notice the body of water that they're racing toward? This can only end badly."

24. “The best thing about kidnapping chicks is that they come with their own shell.”

I'm sure that doesn't help that he doesn't have his hands on the goat he's riding. That can't be good.

I’m sure that doesn’t help that he doesn’t have his hands on the goat he’s riding. That can’t be good.

25. Of course, chicks can be tamed by a fairy with a flute.

Wonder if this fairy Pied Piper of Hamelin is leading these chickies to certain doom. If so, then perhaps these fairies should've been paid.

27. “So how much for the pink egg there?”

Seems like this grocer chick hates his job selling these colored eggs. Shopper chicks think he's a shyster and aren't so fond of him either.

28. Since spring is here, then it’s perfectly all right to egg Jack Frost on Easter.

Okay, rabbits, can you cut it out throwing Easter eggs at Jack Frost? Why do you pick on him out of all people?

Okay, rabbits, can you cut it out throwing Easter eggs at Jack Frost? Yes, he brings winter, but that doesn’t mean you should harass him.

29. Easter greetings from the winged cherub with a large egg on his back.

I don't know about you but I think this endeavor is setting this kid up for a lifetime of back problems. Ever heard of rheumatoid arthritis?

30. Of course, even bears love the taste eggs on Easter.

Of course, anyone who knows about bears will be quick to point out that the chicken doesn't have long to live. Seriously, what do you expect would happen in this situation?

32. For bunnies nothing makes a happy Easter than with a good old fashioned bloodbath.

Okay, why the hell did anyone think traumatizing children on Easter was a good idea? For God's sake these bunnies are injured and one is lying bleeding in a wheelbarrow, possibly dead. This is the most fucked up Easter card I've ever seen in my life.

33. Since spring is baseball season, I can’t see why a baseball Easter card wouldn’t hurt.

So the bunnies are playing baseball with Easter eggs. And the stands are filled with chicks who aren't rioting. Now that's just crazy if you ask me.

34. Oh, no, the gnomes are stealing eggs again.

I'm sure if they get caught, then it'll be the end for them. Still, these guys are pretty creepy.

35. May Easter joy attend you.

Apparently, some little bunny isn't happy with his new adopted siblings getting all the attention. Definitely not basking in any Easter joy here.

36. Of course, you can’t imagine Easter greetings without a sweet little girl and her lamb.

I don't know about you but there's really wrong with this girl. It's like she's possessed by some demon, has no soul, or is dead inside. Quick, call an exorcist!

38. It’s said that an eggshell boat can withstand practically anything.

Okay, this makes Life of Pi seem like a way less desperate situation. Seriously, does that kid have any supplies or know what the hell he's doing?

39. Nothing makes a rabbit more at home than a nice cooked meal after a day out from hunting.

Wait a minute, rabbits are vegetarians and don’t hunt. So why would the rabbit have a gun? Also, why is his chick wife serving him eggs?

40. Seems like these chickies are going to battle.

To be fair, this is a WWI card. Still, seeing a bunch of chickies in doughboy gear is kind of disturbing. Wonder if it became the subject of All Quiet on the Poultry Front.

41. Have an egg cart? Nothing pulls it faster than bunnies.

Okay, I'm sure anything pulled by rabbits at that size and weight wouldn't go very far according to the laws of physics. That, or the rabbits would tire out sooner. Poor things.

42. On Easter, a couple of gnomes always enjoy a good game of egg tossing.

It's a wonder why these eggs don't seem to break. Because some are bound to. Also, I don't understand why they use gnomes in Easter cards either.

45. On Easter, you haven’t heard of bunny riding have you?

And it seems like these two are about to clash because someone wants an Easter basket. Also, this is just plain freaky.

46. Oh, great, someone just got knocked off and had their Easter eggs stolen.

Yes, these are the same kids from the last card. And yes, it seems like the kid in red is a douche and is going to get away with stealing from the kid who's now crying. What a jerk.

49. Sure it’s just getting out of its shell but you can’t start them too early.

Someone's getting a bit presumptuous here since the chick is just being freaking born right now. Maybe the rabbit should find another chick to ride on instead.

The Wonderful World of Peep Shows (No, Not that Kind) (Third Edition)

For Easter in 2014, I did my first Easter post which was on peep dioramas. It was the only Easter post I did that year because I worked on a series called History of the World According to the Movies in March which was a project that took me until just before the 4th of July. Let’s just say it was a longer project than I thought since movies tend to cover a lot of about history but I stopped with the 1990s. Still, it proved to be very popular and I enjoyed doing one so much that decided to do another peep diorama post the next year along with the other Easter posts I did. Again, doing Easter was such a success along with the peep dioramas that I couldn’t think of doing the holiday without a post on these. After all, it would be like doing posts on Valentine’s Day without doing something on vintage valentines. And I know it’s because people like vintage valentines so much that my stats shoot up to over 1,000 views on February 14th. Still, while of you remember marshmallow peeps as inedible sugar coated marshmallow candies which are utterly disgusting to eat, some people use them in the world of art. So much so that there are contests pertaining to peep dioramas around Easter each year. The most famous being the Washington Post. Yes, the paper that helped expose Watergate in the 1970s, yet I haven’t seen a peep diorama on that. Else, I’d show it if I found one. Nevertheless, without further adieu, I give you more peep dioramas to look at for your Easter viewing pleasure.

  1. Little Peeps Farmer’s Market is open for business.
Sure nothing's edible here. But I think it's nice that other peeps are buying fresh produce from their local farms.

3. Spiderpeep, Spiderpeep, does whatever a spider can…

Kind of funny that he's at Time Square. as you can see from the Broadway signs. Also, kind of funny that they made a Spiderman musical on Broadway.

Spring Into These Easter Craft Projects

Easter-Decorations-1

While Easter isn’t as widely celebrated as Christmas in regards to the commercialization, it’s still a big holiday, especially in places where there are a lot of Christians. And while Easter is widely seen as a religious holiday to most Christians around the world since it denotes the resurrection of Christ, there are plenty of people who celebrate the holiday who aren’t religious at all. Not only that, but there are Christian groups who don’t observe the holiday either. For instance, the Puritans didn’t celebrate Easter and nor do the Quakers. Then there are Orthodox Christians and other Eastern sects who celebrate Easter at a later date since they go by a different liturgical calendar. While my family tends to celebrate Easter as a low key affair, there are plenty of people who go all out, not just including parents with kids. And retailers are happy to indulge, which you’d notice every time you go to a store. Not to mention, schoolchildren in the US usually have projects pertaining to Easter as well. Still, while there is a big market for Easter decorations, there are plenty of people who’d rather make their own. As I’ve seen on Pinterest in researching for this post, I have become well aware of it. But in blog posts, I can only show so much. Yes, there will be some religious content as well as bunnies, chicks, and other adorable stuff. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of Eater crafts to adore.

  1. Pardon me, but has anyone heard of an egg shelf?
It's a shelf that's shaped like an egg. And it's all decked out for the spring for all your desires.

As Saint Patrick's Day uses shamrocks and Valentine's Day uses hearts, so shall Easter use bunnies. Still, I really like the bow on this.

3. As we all know, Easter is the time when birds hatch the next generation.

The birds may be fake as far as I can tell. But I'm not sure about the spring grass in the pails. Or is it moss?

16. For those aiming for simplicity, perhaps hang some carrots instead.

Of course, you wouldn't be able to do these with real carrots. Because before long they'd either be rotted or eaten by critters. And you don't have to take my word for it.

17. An Easter bouquet is never complete without jellybeans in the vase.

21. Nothing can get more festive this Easter than this tree of ribbons.

It's mostly purple deco mesh but with crazy polka dot ribbons. Not sure if it's in my taste since it reminds me of something you'd see in Wonka's factory.

23. If you want a rustic mantle for Easter, this moss picture frame will suit you quite nicely.

Well, it has a picture of a rabbit as well as a bird's nest in the corner. Also, I don't think the moss is real. Well, it better not be real or that might be a problem.

24. Of course, you can’t go wrong with an Easter birdhouse.

However, I certainly don't approve of using peanut M&M's on such a project. That's a waste of great chocolate and peanut candy. Best use jellybeans instead.

25. If you prefer a more nature looking wreath for Easter, look no further.

This one seems to have a more natural look in some ways. Except that the eggs are different sizes and colors. Most birds don't lay eggs like that.

26. For those who want to be reminded of Jesus’s death and resurrection, this palm crown of thorns is just the thing.

27. You can’t have a better Easter centerpiece on your table than a box of spring flowers.

45. Remember the meaning of Easter with this Calvary flower box.

As you know, Jesus was crucified on the cross yet would rise within 3 days, according to the Gospels. Still, I like how the flowers overtake them as life overtakes death.

46. Of course, you can’t celebrate Jesus’s triumph over death without a crown of thorns.

If you think a migraine is torture, wearing this makes it seem like nothing. Because the thorns dig into your head and cause bleeding. Hey, Easter isn't all about bunnies, chicks, and colored eggs.

50. Make your home more festive for Easter with this Easter egg tree.

Kind of reminds me of something I've seen in Dr. Seuss. Still, it's very colorful to say the least.

51. Nothing reminds you more of spring than a bird’s nest in an egg basket.

This looks quite simple and not as loud as some of the other decorations. Still, love the shade of blue on the eggs.

52. Sometimes gardens can’t grow unless someone has a watering can in their hand.

This one uses the same scheme as the umbrella hanging. But for some reason, I think this one is better.

53. I guess this one is what I consider an Easter forest.

I think this one was constructed for a restaurant or a hotel. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend anyone do something like this at such a large scale.

55. This bunny candy dispenser can store whatever delights you desire.

This is a perfect decoration for Easter, for obvious reasons. Still, wish I could get a better picture of this because the background is too dark.

58. Got any empty flower pots? Make bunnies out of them.

This is a family of bunnies made of flower pots and other attributes. And they're all wearing the same straw hat as well as seem ready for the garden.

60. There’s nothing like a bouquet of flowers at your front door that capture the spirit of spring.

Yes, the flowers seem like they're straight from a cemetery. But they're still lovely in their own way. Also like how some of them are purple.

61. Decorate your Easter table with these Easter egg spreads.

I suppose these are more suited for a large living room or buffet table. Because they don't seem long enough for the dining room.

I suppose the mold for these crayons also does chocolate bunnies. Yet, these are certainly adorable in many different colors.

63. If you like peeps, then this is the wreath for you.

Yes, this is a peep wreath which is great for Easter. Better these peeps be used for decorating than eating. Because they're disgusting and inedible.

65. Nothing brings the spring into Easter like a pussy willow nest.

Yes, I know you might giggle or cringe at the word "pussy willows." But that's what they're called by many people. Seriously.

66. Celebrate the Resurrection with this empty tomb miniature garden.

67. This Easter don’t forget to welcome your peeps.

There's always something about peeps that makes them quite endearing. That is despite how they're inedible sugar marshmallows being sold as food.

68. Instead of putting flowers in a vase, use a bird’s nest instead.
