To make: Braid together three lengths of chunky weight yarn or twine, holding the ends together with a dab of hot glue. Form braid into desired letter and trim excess lengths, folding end under and holding in place with hot glue. Repeat as needed. Glue braids onto a basket forming into letter shapes as you go.

Rick Rack Easter Napkin Trim

Add a special spring detail to napkins just using rickrack and embroidery thread. We guarantee that your table will have never looked so good!

To make the chicks: Use straight pin to pin the rickrack along the edge of a napkin. Attach the rickrack to the napkin using a whipstitch and a thread that is close to the same color at the rick-rack. Use a few strands of black embroidery thread and a French Knot to create the chick’s eyes in the center of each “hill.” Use a few strands yellow embroidery thread and a back stitch to create the beak and feet.

To make the eggs: Weave two lengths of rickrack together. Whip stitch in place with your choice of embroidery thread.

Easter Bunny Ears

To stitch up one of these kid-friendly accessories, you'll need a child-size headband and 11⁄2 yards of 1⁄2-inch-wide double- fold bias tape.

Step 1: Cut an 18.5-inch-long piece of bias tape. Hem the cut ends under 1⁄2 inch on each side, then stitch together the long side to form a casing. Fold the casing in half so that the ends touch and use a straight pin to mark the fold's center.

Step 2: Feed an extra-thick, 12-inch-long pipe cleaner through one end of the casing, stopping at the pin. Feed a second pipe cleaner through the casing's other end until it, too, meets the pin; remove pin. Bring the casing's open ends toward each other and twist the exposed pipe cleaners together to form a rabbit ear shape. Repeat steps one and two to make a second ear.

Step 3: Cut a piece of bias tape the length of the headband, plus one extra inch. Wrap the tape over the headband, then use pins to mark the two spots where you want to attach the ears (use the photo at left for guidance).

Step 4: Remove the tape from the headband and stitch the long side together, from the pins out to both ends of the tape; stitch these ends closed, and remove pins. Twist the ears' pipe-cleaner ends around the headband in the desired spots, then slide each end of the headband into the casing. Use a needle and thread to slip-stitch the tape around and between the ears closed.
