Easy DIY Easter decorations ideas
We have prepared some easy ideas for Easter decorations that you can make yourself with just a few simple tools and materials. If you have children, involve them in the DIY process as well. We are sure they will be extremely excited to participate and create beauty with you! And now let’s see the ideas!
Our first idea is to make a candle in an eggshell. You don’t need to buy wax – you can just use old candles and melt them. Prepare some eggshells and a thick thread for the wick. After pouring the wax into the eggshell, let it harden. Decorate around the candles as desired.
Easy bunny garland idea
If you want to add a festive atmosphere to your home, the easiest way is to make garlands of paper bunnies to hang in different places in your home. They are easy to make as you can use colored paper or old newspapers. Print out the bunny template we’ve shared below (free to download and use). Cut along the outline and use it to make as many bunnies as you want. Run a thread or twine in a color of your choice, and you’re done! To make them even cuter, you can add a cotton pompom to each bunny.
Easter egg wreath
Our next idea is a typically Easter one – make a beautiful egg wreath. Use twigs to make the base and attach eggshells using a hot glue gun. Add other decorations of your choice.
We’re sure you have empty jars in your home. Why not paint them in lovely spring colors (yellow, pink, blue or green). Use can use acrylic paints for this purpose. Once dry, add twigs, flowers and decorative eggs on a stick.
Easter egg buckets
Add a real Easter atmosphere to your home with incredibly some cute egg buckets. Use a large paper egg, wire and chalk paints to make beautiful Easter decoration for your home. We are sharing a video detailing the whole process:
