Easter Placemat or Poster

I'm getting tired of winter here in Vermont and I'm sure much of the Northeastern US shares this feeling. I need to think about Easter, so here's a spring placemat or poster design filled with symbols of rebirth: eggs, baby chicks and flowers. This is a simple enough design to use for paper piercing or as a basis for your own artwork and details. The eggs all around the border just beg to be decorated ... imagine this template as a white on white embroidery for your Easter centerpiece.

Printable Easter placemat template is free for any noncommercial use. Pin it to share!

Mittens Coloring Page

Remember those mittens on strings Mom or Grandma knitted for you? You had to thread the strings down the sleeves of your jacket and then you never lost a mitten again. Make some snowfall memories with this mittens coloring page - strings included.

I may use this as a craft template and put photos of my kids inside the mittens or use them as gift tags. You could also use these mittens line drawings as templates for your local mitten tree:  print them out, color them in and make donation ornaments for the mitten tree at the libray.
