10 DIY Easter Decoration Ideas
An Easter celebration is not complete without a festive atmosphere. Let’s be honest, is any holiday? I love to decorate my home but I hate how expensive it is to go out and buy decorations. It costs half as much just to MAKE your own! There is a myth that home made decorations are not as cute, but I am about to prove that wrong. I’ve decided to gather a few of my favorite DIY Easter Decorations for you so that you can have a festive, stylish home for half the price. These are ones we’ve found from around the interwebs, but we’ve done a bunch ourselves, and you can find even more DIY Easter Decorations here!
1. DIY Easter Basket Centerpiece
4 picket fences from Hobby Lobby
1 unfinished square wood from Hobby Lobby (located right by the picket fences)
Moss or green Easter grass
1 piece of foam from Dollar Tree (not pictured)
Ribbon or ric-rac
All you need is 7 super simple, affordable materials and you are good to go. This project would be ideal to do with your children. How special would they feel to sit down at the dinner table each night and know they made the center piece?
2. DIY Napkin Folded Bunny with Easter Egg
Square fabric napkin/paper
These are SO simple! All you have to do is click on the link below to follow instructions on how to fold them! Once you are done folding, all you have to do is draw on the features! Each bunny can be completely unique! For the finishing touch, drop an egg inside the pouch and use it as a part of your place setting. Everyone will be thrilled to see these awaiting them at the table. They are so cute, your guests might not even want to use them!
Another idea: You could use these as a treat for parties at school! Every child would love to not only get an egg but ALSO, a bunny! And the plus side is that this project is super affordable.
3. Easter Bunny Softies From Socks
New newborn or baby cotton socks (You’ll need one sock per rabbit.)
Matching sewing thread
Black embroidery floss (thread)
A soft pink marker
Pom-poms, ribbons or other embellishments
These are some of the most adorable sock bunnies I have ever seen! And the best part is, you barely even need to know how to sew. If you can thread a needle, you can do this! Just grab some old pairs of socks, and instead of giving away chocolate, give away a sock bunny! You could place these on your mantel, your child’s bedroom, or even give them away as gifts!
4. Egg Topiary
Egg – either paper mache or Styrofoam
Ribbon – 3 or 4 coordinating ribbons (or you can do all one ribbon, too) – amount will be determined by size of your egg, see below
Measuring tape or string & ruler
Pot or pail or bucket
Styrofoam or floral foam
This is DIY is perfect for any mantel or centerpiece. You can customize it to fit whatever look you are going for. You can use all the same color of ribbon or different colors, sizes, and patterns! I love to mix it up and combine different patters that go well together. I highly recommend trying this one!
5. Rainbow Bunny peeps Wreath
Peeps Bunnies (5 Color Sampler Pack)
10″ Styrofoam Wreath
Pink Burlap Ribbon
Okay, I know it sounds cruel to use something so tasty to make a wreath, but isn’t it adorable?! Peeps are SO cheap and all you need to do is buy the 5 Color Sampler Pack, the wreath, toothpicks, burlap, and a floral pin to make this beauty! Try not to eat them all as you are placing them on. I know it will be hard! But wouldn’t this look adorable hanging on your front door? Give it a try!
6. Rustic Wooden Bunny
This one is on my to-do list for this Easter Season. Wood is so in these days and this is the cutest wooden bunny. All you have to do is go on a little walk somewhere where there is trees and pick up any fallen branch that is big enough! (If you live in the city and don’t have to much access to trees, hobby lobby has wood rounds that would work just fine!) Then glue them together and wa-la! You are done! Who’s with me and wants to try this one out this Easter??
7. Bunny Garland
Four sheets of scrapbooking paper in coordinating patterns
White card stock
Small pom poms
I am a HUGE fan of garlands! They hang perfectly on the mantel above my fireplace and I love to decorate it! That is one of the focal points for all the decorations in my home and this garland is SO EASY to make! We have the template here for you and all you need to do is follow the instructions in the link below! This project could be a super fun craft to do with your kids! They would love to help you and it is simple enough that they won’t make a mess!
8. Easter Egg Mason Jars
Round Foam Brush
80 grit sandpaper
Okay, I am in LOVE with these jars! These colors are SO spring and they are so easy to make. If you feel like you are artistically challenged, all you need to do is tape and paint away! The tape will do all the work for you! You can paint them whatever color you would like, but I would suggest sticking to spring pastel colors
9. Jelly Bean Tree
A branch (it can be whatever kind you want! This one was made with an apple tree branch)
Hot Glue Gun
How adorable is this? Just like the Peep’s Wreath, this one could be hard to make because you will want to eat it! But, if you succeed and finish making it before you eat all the Jelly Beans, this would be the perfect center piece. And the best part is, it could end up costing you less than $2. If you find the branch and use the hot glue gun you already have.. all you have to do is buy the jelly beans! This is the perfect, afforable decoration!
10. Easter Decor Carrots
I couldn’t believe how EASY these are to make and that they only need 4 materials to get the job done! The best part is that you will probably have everything on hand in your home but fake grass. So, one day when your out and about, stop by the dollar store or any craft store, pick up some fake grass, and make away!
