Spring is in the air, which means that all the baby chicks are starting to hatch and the little bunny rabbits have started hopping around again! That also means it's almost time for Easter, and what better way to get into the spirit of the season than by making your own Easter decorations? Rather than spending a fortune buying new decorations this year, try spending some time with your loved ones preparing for the holiday with these 7 cute DIY Easter decor ideas. Thanks to all of these fun crafts, nothing can stand in the way of a hoppy Easter!

1. Colorful Easter Garland

You'll Need:

  • fork
  • white yarn
  • green yarn
  • colorful construction paper
  • craft glue
  • string or ribbon

Here's How:

1.1 This cute project is fun for the whole family! Wrap some white yarn around a fork, tie the ends together tightly in the center, and cut through the 2 loops on the sides to create a pom pom.

1.2 Cut the colorful construction paper into the shapes of both bunnies and carrots. Glue the white pom poms onto the bunnies to give them little cottontails. 

1.3 Cut the green yarn into small pieces and glue the pieces onto the top of each of the carrots. 

1.4 Attach the bunnies and carrots to a long piece of thread or ribbon to complete your gorgeous Easter garland.

2. Easter Egg Tealights

You'll Need:

  • eggs 
  • cement
  • popsicle stick
  • candle wick
  • melted candle wax
  • toothpick

Here's How:

2.1 Easter wouldn't be complete without using eggs for some fun crafts! Crack a small hole in 1 side of an egg and drain out its contents. Repeat this same process with several eggs.

2.2 Fill the all of the eggshells about halfway with liquid cement. While the cement is setting, use a popsicle stick to push it towards the sides of the eggshell, creating a small well in the middle.

2.3 Put a candle wick in the well in the center of the cement, melt some candle wax, and fill the eggshell with the melted wax. 

2.4 Lay a toothpick on top of the egg to keep the wick in place while the wax hardens.

2.5 Let the cement and wax harden, then peel the egg. Now your DIY Easter egg candles are finished!

3. Peter Cottontail Outdoor Decor

You'll Need:

  • 2 socks
  • white washcloth
  • rubber band
  • small flower pot
  • white pom pom
  • white construction paper
  • pink foam sheet
  • craft glue or hot glue gun

Here's How:

3.1 This decoration is perfect for the front porch! Wrap a pair of socks in a white washcloth and tie everything together with a rubber band, forming a small bundle. Tuck the bundle upside down into a small flower pot so that the rubber band and loose ends are hidden. 

3.2 Cut the white construction paper and pink foam into the shape of 2 bunny feet. Attach a white pom pom and the bunny feet to the washcloth with glue. Looks like someone is stuck!

4. Colorful Cement Easter Eggs

You'll Need:

  • container from 2 Kinder Joy eggs
  • cement
  • paint & paintbrush

Here's How:

4.1 Kinder Joy eggs are chocolaty treats that come in plastic egg-shaped packaging. They're a delicious candy for the Easter season, but the best part about them is that their packaging can come in handy for decorating! Once you've eaten your treat, clean the empty packaging from 1 Kinder Joy egg and fill both halves with cement. Let the cement harden. 

4.2 Clean another empty Kinder Joy egg package and fill both halves with liquid cement. Place each of the hardened egg halves on top of the liquid cement to make 2 complete eggs. 

4.3 Once the cement has hardened, pop the eggs out of the Kinder Joy packaging and paint them with bright colors and designs.

5. Easter Egg Table Wreath

You'll Need:

  • cardboard egg cartons
  • hot glue gun
  • twine or ribbon
  • Easter decorations

Here's How:

5.1 Don't throw your egg cartons into the recycling bin – we've got another use for them! Glue the egg cartons to each other in the shape of a ring using a hot glue gun. Tie the outer edges of the egg cartons together with twine or ribbon to make a wreath.

5.2 Fill the egg cartons with your favorite colorful Easter decorations and you've got a stunning centerpiece for Easter dinner!

6. Eggs-quisite Mini Planters

You'll Need:

  • egg
  • cement
  • popsicle stick
  • gold permanent marker
  • potting soil
  • small plant or plant cutting

Here's How:

6.1 Eggs are the stars of the show this time of year! Crack a small hole in 1 side of the egg and drain out its contents. Fill the empty eggshell up to the top with liquid cement.

6.2 Use a popsicle stick to make a well in the center of the cement. 

6.3 Let the cement harden, then remove the eggshell. Using a gold permanent marker, draw a design on the cement egg.

6.4 Fill the hole in the middle of the cement egg with some potting soil and a plant of your choice – we're particularly partial to succulents and cacti! 

7. Surprise-Inside Easter Soap

You'll Need:

  • plastic Easter egg mold
  • small Easter toy (e.g. lamb or bunny)
  • fishing line
  • tape
  • funnel
  • hand soap

Here's How:

7.1 There are no limits when it comes to Easter decorations. Even the bathroom can be brightened up with spring-themed charm! Tie some fishing line around a small toy, then use the fishing line to secure the toy in place between the 2 halves of the plastic Easter egg mold. Seal the edges in with tape, making sure the toy remains in the middle of the mold. 

7.2 Using a small funnel, pour the hand soap through the hole in the plastic egg. Seal the hole with tape as well.

7.3 Let the soap harden, then peel the tape off of the mold. Remove the soap from the plastic Easter egg mold and use scissors to trim off the fishing line hanging out of the soap.
