Easter Placeholders Free Crochet Pattern


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to my blog!


Being creative and working with my hands have always helped me ease stress and anxiety. The positive distraction, the release of serotonin, the color therapy are just few of the benefits of crochet.


Crochet projects don't have to be big to boost your spirit and self esteem and to bring a smile to your face.


Take for example these cute little bunnies I made as placeholders for the Easter table.

Their colors, and the warm touch of the wooden base are just the perfect ingredients to create something special for your holiday.


I'm so happy to share this easy and super quick project with you all!

So, grab your favorite yarn and hook and crochet along with me!
