Easter is less than a month away. Have you started thinking about holiday craft projects yet? We won’t blame you if you’ve been too busy enjoying the sudden abundance of Cadbury Eggs to think about it, but these photos may inspire you to put down the Peeps and pick up the hot glue gun.

This awesome homemade golden Easter egg puts all of our previous rainy day art projects to shame. Although the final product looks like a gilded relic you might encounter in a church or museum, it appears to be made of lots and lots of pasta, glue and gold spray paint. We can only imagine it must’ve taken ages to put it all together.

Visit English Russia for many more process photos of this truly epic macaronic art project.

Molly Thomas is a performer and writer living in New York who has developed an awesomely silly hobby. When she isn’t performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade, she’s dressing up her roommate Mick Bleyer like a baby and perfectly recreating baby photos for a funny and impressively good-natured project entitled My Precious Roommate.

Dear Internet - I heard you like bacon, so I made this for you. Happy Easter!

Easter without plenty of chocolate and other sweets is pretty much unimaginable, but the folks over Atomic Shrimp created this awesome Bacon Easter Egg, reminding us that a happy Easter is also a meaty Easter.

The egg itself is made of woven strips of bacon - a beautiful sight to behold. It contains “a couple of nice Cumberland sausages and some fried slices of black pudding - also on the plate; fried tomato, mushroom, potato slices, fried bread, baked beans and a fried egg (cooked to perfection with a liquid yolk) - and a nice mug of tea on the side.”

Someone played a cruel trick on the Easter Bunny. He thought he was decorating a big, beautiful egg. It’s a perfectly harmless thing for a bunny to do. That is, assuming the egg wasn’t laid by a Xenomorph. A good day for a freshly hatched facehugger is a bad day for pretty much anyone else.
We aren’t sure who created this gruesome Easter masterpiece. If you know who is responsible for producing such awesomeness, please let us know.

Located in the tiny village of Bishop Hill, Illinois, American sculptor Beth Ann Magnuson transforms the eggshells from turkeys, chickens, duck, peafowl, pheasants, partridges, and even tiny quail into delicate works of art. She carves and etches intricate Victorian lace patterns into the blown shells using a high speed drill.

Although she is currently taking a short break (to create more awesome lace eggs), Beth Ann has an Etsy shop called The Nest at Windy Corner where she sells these amazing works of art.

For Easter Michael Procopio of Food for the Thoughtless adapted Saveur magazine’s corn dog recipe to create irreverently and deliciously awesome Crucifixion Corn Dogs.

He says to serve, “decorate with mustard. You do not have to put the image of Christ on every corn dog. If you have any martyrs in your family, feel free to squirt on their likeness and share it with them to show that you know how much they themselves have suffered, which will give them great comfort.”

“They’re more substantial than a communion wafer, and more delicious, too. And, given the nature of hot dogs, you still won’t be certain from which part of the body they came.”

Head over to Food for the Thoughtless for the recipe and instructions.

Last year we featured Christa and Volker Kraft’s incredibly awesome tradition of decorating a tree in their garden in Saalfeld, Germany with 10,000 Easter eggs.

The couple has been decorating their tree in this fashion for over 40 years now and, as you can see in the photos above, this year the Easter tree is looking more splendid than ever.
