Hop to It: DIY Easter decor ideas

Easter’s on its way! If you haven’t put up your decor yet, you still have a little bit of time to craft some Easter charm! We have a few ideas to get you started. Here are 5 DIY Easter decor ideas.

Bunny-BuntingBunny Bunting Clean and Scentsible has a few ideas for making bunny bunting, but this one with the pom-pom tails is our favorite! The tails are easy to make with a skein of yarn. Wrap the yarn around your fingers, tie a piece around the middle of your yarn circle to create two loops, and then cut the ends of the loops to fray and you have a bunny tail! Glue that to bunny cutouts and they’re ready to hang!

Jelly-bean-treeJelly Bean Tree This might be the most delicious looking tree your kids have ever seen! Unfortunately, this Crafty Sisters project isn’t quite edible, but it is very easy to make! Basically, collect a few nice looking twigs and branches from the back yard and prune them. Then, select your favorite jelly beans and hot glue them to the branches. When they’re all cooled and dried, it’ll look like your branches are budding with jelly beans!

Tiny-pinatasPiñata Eggs It’s not quite Cinco de Mayo, but that’s not stopping Oh Happy Day from making Easter a fiesta with these tiny piñatas! She use tiny balloons to act as her Easter eggs and applied the same method for making big piñatas to these little egg-shaped ones using papier mache and crepe paper. It’s a fun little craft to keep the kids busy on a Saturday afternoon and the house decorated for Easter Sunday dinner.


Egg-terrariums
Easter Egg Terrariums If you’ve got little ones, this may be the Easter decor idea that can distract them from their Easter candy! This one comes from The House That Lars Built — and what a fun spring project to get the kids excited about the new season. She used real dirt and real moss, but for flowers that would last, she crafted cute little paper cutouts. They’re so cute and so easy, your kids can make some for themselves and a few extras to give away as gifts for the holiday or use them as favors/place settings for your Easter dinner!

carrot-centerpiecesCarrot Centerpieces Bunnies and flowers are what spring is all about! For an Easter centerpiece, carrots mask the spring flower stems to add a little indirect Easter Bunny flair. Love Grows Wild came up with this simple idea for your holiday dinner table. All you need are flowers, carrots and a good vase. Easter decor doesn’t get much easier than that!

Easter: Our Favorite Ways to Make Easter Eggs Unique

Hippity hoppity, Easter’s on it’s way! It’s time to put up your Easter decor, plan Easter dinner and think about how you can make your Easter eggs memorable. No one will scoff at traditionally dyed eggs, but there are dozens of ways to make them a little more original. Here are a few of our favorite ways to make Easter eggs unique.

minion-eggsDecorating for Beginners You don’t have to decorate real eggs to have a belly-tickling result! These minions were created by Tidbits & Twine for a Despicable Me-themed birthday party, but we thought they were too fun not to include them in our Easter baskets! All they are, are hollow plastic eggs with the tops and bottoms mixed up in yellow and blue with googly eyes glued on and embellished with a black marker. They’re adorable and perfect for holding Easter candies.bunny-silhouettes

Cottontail Contours Speaking of markers and “easy,” Cutesy Crafts boils down egg decorating to a sticker and a few dots. It’s such a simple idea — even tiny hands can create works of art with this method. Just stick the bunny sticker on an egg and start dabbing around the edges of the sticker until you have dense constellations of dots. When the ink is dry, just peel off the sticker and you have delightful bunny silhouettes with almost no mess!  blue-marble

Little Blue Marbles Here’s a project for more mature Easter egg dyers: marbled indigo eggs. Alice and Lois did a fabulous step-by-step on how to turn plain old white eggs into marbled eggs of glory using only water and fingernail polish! As a warning, rubber gloves are suggested as this method can get quite messy.  water-color-easter-eggs

O’Keefe Ovum Here are eggs worthy of a spot on the mantle! Dream a Little Bigger made these eggs. They may take a little more time and concentration, but the result is something even Georgia O’Keefe might envy. These require a few drops of food coloring, paintbrushes and a thin black marker if you want to add the fancy outlines (but they still look cute without the outlines). This is your chance (or your kids’!) to get really creative with your eggs!  frozen-eggs

Elsa Eggs We saved the most complicated for last. A Pumpkin and a Princess came up with these eggs fit for a princess — they aredefinitely not for the crafting-faint-of-heart! Pearl paint, glitter, rhinestones and a lot of patience is what you need to create your own Frozen egg masterpiece. Though it’s a big undertaking, everyone can agree the effort put forth is worth it for all the oooooohs and awwwws.
