Easter Sunday is just a couple of days away! This year, we are in charge of all the Easter decorations to make the house festive and fun and colorful. We pulled together all of our favorite do-it-yourself Easter projects in to one awesome post. These aren’t just Easter crafts, but they are things that are pretty trendy right now and totally unique, so we’re really excited to make them all. We hope you find it useful too, and enjoy making some of these really fun DIY crafts with your family!
First up comes from Country Living, and it’s how to make Ombré Eggs! We already like decorating and dying Easter eggs, but we’ve never thought to make them ombré style (above)! We cannot wait to try this out with a few different colors.
Another Easter craft from Country Living is a linen or paper box with chocolate eggs (below)! It’s such a simple idea: make an elegant paper or linen box, and fill it with chocolate eggs (like our favorite Cadbury Mini Eggs!) It’s a really cute way to decorate each place setting at the table or give as treats to guests!
Pretty egg garland (below) across your staircase or on the wall behind your table would be so pretty! We love the tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens. The coolest and weirdest part is that it’s made with real eggs! It would probably be pretty with the ombré style we just learned about, too!
One more DIY we found over at Better Homes and Gardens (below) was to use an old watering can as a vase, fill it with fresh flowers and little egg decorations, and hang it from your front door! So pretty to see when guests walk in!
Our last two Easter decoration DIYs are yummy- because they’re totally edible! Both ideas come from Katie Crafts and look like they’d be really easy to make. The first are chocolate covered Peeps bunnies! You can arrange them in a basket of Easter grass for guests to nibble on AND it doubles as a decoration.
The second DIY are for Bird’s Nest Cupcakes. These would be really cute for Easter and also for Spring in general! Plus they also use our favorite Easter chocolate- Cadbury Mini Eggs. YUM!
We better get started on all of these DIY Easter decoration projects if we want to finish them all before Sunday! Wish us luck!
Are you going to make any Easter decorations for your house this year? Which of our projects is your favorite?

We’ve been awaiting the first trailer for “Boy Meets World” spin-off, “Girl Meets World,” for what seems like forever now! (No, really! It’s been over a year!) Well, we are happy to say it’s finally here! The show follows around Riley and her bff Maya. Riley (played by Rowan Blanchard) is the 12 year old daughter of “Boy Meets World” couple Topanga (Danielle Fishel) and Cory (Ben Savage). The family lives in Manhattan now, but that doesn’t mean old cast members won’t be popping in!
Check out the first trailer below!
The show finally arrives on the Disney Channel this summer, and we can’t wait! Ben Savage has been sharing some photos on the set, and we have them below for you!
Such great photos! We can’t wait to see the first episode when it comes out this summer!
Are you excited for “Girl Meets World”? What did you think of the first official trailer?

We are so excited for the newest upcoming Disney Channel movie, “Zapped!” It is starring Zendaya, who plays the main character Zoey Stevens. Zoey is a great dancer, a straight A student and new at her school. She has a new step-dad, three new step-brothers and a crazy new dog. She downloads an app on her smart phone to try to train the crazy dog, but she gets more than she bargained for! Zoey becomes all powerful when she gets her hands on an app that has the ability to control all the boys in her life! Zoey‘s best friend doesn’t think it’s a very good idea, but Zoey has fun with it anyway! She has a huge crush on Jackson (“Lab Rats” star Spencer Boldman) and she just can’t stop using the app!
Want to watch the new full trailer? Check it out below!
“Zapped” hits the airwaves this summer, but there is no official date scheduled yet. We’ll let you know when they announce one!

If you didn’t catch the episode, check out what you missed below! We have the scores of all the dancers, what they danced to, and even pics from the night so you can see what the fun Disney outfits were!
Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke – danced quickstep - ”Aladdin” - 28 (out of 40)
Charlie White and Sharna Burgess – danced jazz - ”Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from “Mary Poppins” – 37

At the end of the night, Cody Simpson and Witney were the ones eliminated- and we were SO sad to see them go! Cody was our favorite, after all! Cody was a good sport about it, saying,
“This has been a very new experience and an amazing experience. Obviously it’s tough, but it is what it is.”
Are you sad that Cody Simpson was eliminated from week 5 of Dancing With The Stars? Who do you think should have gone home instead? What was your favorite Disney themed dance to watch?

You know the words on that game will be the names of girls, because that’s the theme you picked! But you won’t know what the names are until you find them yourself!

It’s nothing new to see or hear about people in far away places eating things that you may think are totally gross or strange, but they probably think the same thing about you! We pulled together our top ten of the strangest things to eat across the world and put it in a poll for you to decide which the weirdest is (or at least, which sounds the silliest!) Vote below, and then tell us in the comments what other weird foods you’ve heard about, which ones you’d be willing to try off the list, and what foods sound weird but are actually totally delicious! (Personally, we love grits with breakfast, and poutine any time!)

Big Time Rush singer James Maslow has been hitting the dance floor lately on “Dancing With The Stars” and has caught the love and attention of one girl named Hannah. Hannah Wackernagle, with the help of her family, friends, classmates and teachers, put together a really fun “Promposal 2014″ video asking James if he would be Hannah‘s date to her upcoming Prom! While he sadly can’t make it due to his very busy DWTS schedule, he did the next best thing! He invited Hannah and her family to fly out to L.A. (which he will of course pay for!) to visit him on the set of Dancing With The Stars AND he’s getting them tickets to Disneyland!
Watch Hannah’s Promposal video to James below!
