Preparation for Easter is one of the most pleasant spring worries. Easter crafts unite the whole family together. Making gifts, decorated with cute rabbits, chickens, delicate flowers brings light joy.6 original ideas for Easter cards with their own hands inspire the creativity of children and adults.

What is needed for the work of

Homemade postcard is a part of the soul of the author. The more effort and imagination invested in the card, the more it demonstrates love. Easter greetings are made in bright colors, reminiscent of the spring, the sun.

Traditional symbols of Easter messages reflect the Christian ideas of love, eternal life. This is the heart, the open palm, the cross, the painted egg, the name "Jesus."Easter is associated with the spring awakening of nature. Therefore, postcards depict flowers, green branches, rabbits, chickens. Often there is one of the symbols of Christ - a white lamb.

To make postcards by yourself, you need to draw a sketch and prepare materials, tools. Scissors, cardboard, ruler, pencils, glue and colored paper are mandatory components. You may need:

  • Multicolored markers. Scraps of fabric.
  • Compass.
  • Hole punch.
  • Scissors with shaped blades.
  • Braid, ribbons, laces.
  • Lace.
  • Natural Materials.

It is important to remember that Easter is a family holiday. Therefore, in handicrafts it is desirable to include retro technology: embroidery, lacing, crochet. Natural materials - natural twigs, pieces of wood, straws - give the card a spontaneity. Easter greetings are always a bit naive, performed in a "childish" style. Light negligence enhances the effect of sincerity, purity of intentions.

Now the reception of decorating Easter cards with stamps is popular. It is easy to make a stamp from raw potatoes:

  1. Cut the vegetables in half and along, peel with a napkin, allow to dry for 15 minutes.
  2. Then, on a flat surface, the potatoes are cut with a knife strip - horizontally or criss-crosswise. It turns out the blank for the stamp "Easter Egg".
  3. Surface sections are painted in different colors. Press the potatoes to paper - and a multi-colored print with stripes, like an egg, is ready.
