Easy Easter decoration


Easter Chick Display – Set out this creative egg and chick project for a fun Easter decoration. To make, start by gluing together two yellow pom-poms for the chick, then add a face using felt and fabric paint. Insert the chick into a prestretched balloon, blow up to desired size and knot the balloon and spray with cooking spray. Coat string with white glue, wrap colored string around balloon, adding crisscrossing strands as you go (make sure gaps are no larger than the chick). Let string dry, pop balloon and remove it.

Lovely DIY Easter idea


Make yourself a too-cute Easter centerpiece for just pennies that kids and adults will adore – Paper Egg Centerpiece. Simply cut out Easter egg shapes from construction paper, and decorate using ribbon, markers, and stickers. Hang the eggs from a collection of pussy willow branches held in a vase or bucket.

Quick and easy – Easter egg garland


Remarkably simple, even the kids can get involved in making the craft for the Easter egg garland! Simply cut egg shapes out of paper, decorate with paint (let dry standing up for a cool, dripping look), and attach along a string to hang.

DIY Spring and Easter door decoration


Gather a bouquet of flowers – real or silk – into an umbrella for a door display full of country charm. Tie a ribbon around the umbrella to hold the bouquet in place, and add a few dyed, blown-out eggshells for extra Easter fun.

Easter branch bouquet


Hot-glue several pink flowers onto branches for a fresh Easter look. This is a great, long-lasting alternative to a floral spring arrangement — or a complementary piece!

Easter garlands for cheery wall decor


Nothing says spring like a burst of cheery blooms, and attaching those blooms to string that you then hang up as garlands is an easy way to add a festive feel to any interior or exterior space for Easter or spring. Inspiration and how-to here.

Easter butterfly tree


Use twine to hang paper butterflies on branches – these are made from note cards, but you can also cut butterfly shapes out of cardstock. For dimension, outline edges of the cards with acrylic crafts paint. Insert branches into foam in a garden container. Silk flowers glued to some branches and moss topping the container finish the look.

Easter basket decoration


Use a paper shredder to make an Easter basket centerpiece. To create a paper nest, shred long sheets of kraft paper or holiday wrapping scraps, and staple each end together. Add a length of floral wire, hold one end of the strips in each hand, and twist and wrap it into a nest. Clip a few strands with scissors for a loosely woven look. If needed, add a dab of glue to keep the strands in place. Lay real or faux eggs inside to finish the Easter decoration.

Forgot to pick-up a basket this year or just looking for a fun way to recycle some scrap paper you have lying around the house? This paper basket project found on South by North calls for fresh paper, but we bet you could adapt this idea to paper you might already have lying around the house.
