4 DIY Easter Crafts
Easter is just around the corner and you still don't have any decorations? Don't fret! We've come up with a bunch of awesome DIY projects to help you win Easter this year. From Easter tree ornaments to an Easter eggshell wreath, we've got you covered!
1. Easter Tree Ornaments
- Easter grass
- small decorative eggs (like Whoppers Robin Eggs or Cadbury Mini Eggs)
1.1 Gently crack the eggs and remove part of the shell. Poke a hole in the top.
1.2 Boil the eggshells for 5-10 minutes to kill any bacteria and leave the shells to cool and dry.
1.3 Loop thread and put it on a toothpick. Repeat this for each egg. Then put the toothpick through the hole in the egg so you can hang it up later.
1.4 Decorate the inside of the egg with some Easter grass, small decorative eggs, or flowers and hang them up on your Easter tree.
2. Macramé Easter Egg
You'll Need (for 1):
- 3-ft yarn strings (6x)
- wooden bead
- large needle
- spring flowers
2.1 Use the big needle to push each piece of yarn through the hole of the wooden bead. Push the bead about 4 inches onto the threads, then make a knot at the shorter end of the wool threads so that the bead won't slip later.
2.2 Divide the strings into three pairs.
2.3 Knot each pair together, making sure to leave some space between the knots and the bead.
2.4 Now knot the inner threads together with the thread of the neighboring pair.
2.5 Knot the two outer threads together.
2.6 If you pull apart the threads, you can see a net that you can use later to hang up the egg.
2.7 Gently break the egg open on the pointed side and remove about a third of the shell. Fill the remaining shell with some soil and plant an early bloomer.
2.8 Place the planted eggshell in the net and use it to decorate windows, trees, or bushes.
3. Easter Eggshell Wreath
- styrofoam wreath
- hot glue
3.1 Use a hot glue gun to cover the styrofoam wreath with eggshells.
3.2 Glue moss in the spaces between eggshells.
3.3 Finally, decorate the wreath with flowers and feathers and hang it on your front door.
4. Easter Eggshell Candles
- 6 eggshells
- 6 candle wicks
- 6 toothpicks
- leftover candles
- 6 tealight candle holders
4.1 Open the eggshells very carefully on the pointed side and remove about a third of the shell.
4.2 Wrap the candle wicks around the toothpicks and place them in the eggshells.
4.3 Melt the leftover candles in a hot water bath and pour the melted wax into the eggshells.
4.4 Let the wax harden and then remove the excess wicks.
4.5 Place the eggshells candles in the tealight candle holders and light them.
