1. Crafts ideas for Easter and Spring – tissue paper pom poms
Decorate the dining area with these beautiful paper pom-poms. They can be either hung on the chandelier, placed in the middle of the Easter table or used as decorations for a garden party. The bright colors give the room a fresh look. Materials needed: colorful tissue paper (preferably only 2-3 colors that are coordinated with the other table decorations), scissors, florist wire, tape. Take 6 to 10 sheets of tissue paper and fold them in the shape of an accordion.
Craft ideas for Easter and Spring
Use sharp scissors to cut both ends of the folded tissue paper. Tie the center of the folded paper with floral wire or a thread. If you are crafting the pompoms for hanging, tie a ribbon on the wire. Now you have to puff the paper flower, unfold the sheets and form a ball. You can combine two colors or different shades of color.
2. Small topiary tree – DIY a ball from colorful ribbons
We are in love with this idea. This small tree is perfect both for the Easter table as well as for any other occasion. You need MANY ribbons, a flower pot or a small decorative bucket, chopsticks, a large styrofoam ball, florist foam, scissors, pins, hot glue gun and decorative stones, candy or silk paper for the base. Insert a wooden stick in the styrofoam ball after you have smeared it with a bit of hot glue. Then do the same with the florist foam. Then put the florist foam in the pot, so that there are no gaps and the foundation is stable.
Cut the ribbons into small pieces. Make a loop with a piece of tape and insert the needle where the ends meet, and then decorate the styrofoam ball with it. Repeat until the entire ball is covered. To complete the look of the tree, add small decorative stones or candy into the flower pot to hide the floral foam. Now you have a nice little tree, which can be adapted for every season!
3. Hanging vases for pansies – window decoration from baby food jars
Baby food jars can be transformed into cute hanging vases. They are hung on the window frame and are secured with florist wire and tape. For the handles, it is best to double the support. The purple tones look delicate and elegant. For more dynamic, you can hang the glass jars at different height.
4. A beautiful vase case of paper
A seasonal bouquet in a pretty vase with a folded cover makes a great impression, especially if the color scheme is matched with the flowers. Use an iron to flatten the fabric, and then make the folding. Make small slits on each fold and run a band. End up with a beautiful bow.
5. Make yarn eggs quickly and creatively
These eggs are so easy to craft for Easter and can also be a great gift idea for the kids, if you hide a little surprise in the egg. You need some balloons, a small hand air pump, glue from the craft store and yarn. Inflate the balloons with the hand air pump to the desired size and squeeze the balloon to form an egg. Roll yarn on the balloon as shown here and cut the end. In this way we know how much yarn we need. Then you have two options – soak the yarn in the glue or paste the adhesive with a brush. Let the eggs dry at least 24 hours. Once the yarn is dry, pop the balloon and pull the pieces out through the holes. And done!
