Australian-themed Easter craft ideas that celebrate the Autumn season and are perfect for kids of all ages.
Easter is a wonderful time of year to get creative and make some fun and festive crafts with your kids. But in Australia, Easter falls during the Autumn season and I find much of the Easter craft projects around have a big Spring focus. So lets get creative with some unique themes and colours that reflect the cooler weather and Australia.
Autumnal Easter Egg Wreath
An Easter egg wreath is a fun and colourful way to decorate your home for the holiday, and it's easy to make with just a few supplies. For an Autumnal twist, you can use leaves and other natural materials in place of the traditional spring flowers. Start by gathering a variety of plastic Easter eggs in different colors and sizes. Then, use a hot glue gun to attach them to a foam wreath base, making sure to cover the entire surface. Once you have all your eggs in place, add some faux leaves and twigs to the wreath, using hot glue to secure them.
