Kids and adults alike always look forward to the Easter Bunny’s arrival, decorating eggs and participating in community Easter egg hunts. Decorate your home in the bright and cheery springtime colors with some of these clever easter crafts.
Paper Egg Wreath
You can find plenty of bright and cheerful printed paper perfect for this Easter craft idea at craft and dollar stores. Cut out the center of a paper plate, leaving the outer ring intact. Then, cut out eggs from your selection of paper and glue them onto the paper plate ring. You can use eggs cut in the same size or try a variety of sizes – just make sure all eggs are big enough to cover the paper plate ring. To hang your wreath, cut a piece of ribbon, form a loop, and glue both ends to the back of the wreath.
Salt Dough Egg Ornaments
Decorate the plants or small trees in your home or on your porch with colorful egg ornaments. Try this simple salt dough recipe and have the whole family join in the fun of decorating them.

Table Accessories and Centerpieces
Are you hosting an Easter dinner party or brunch? Check out these DIY faux-Peeps place cardholders. Or, simply use a permanent marker to write your guest’s name on a dyed Easter egg and place the egg in a small nest at each place setting. To add some color to your table, fill clear mason jars or small vases with water dyed in a rainbow of bright colors and some blooms from your garden and line them up on a runner down the length of your table.
Alternatively, fill the jars or vases halfway with colorful jelly beans and DIY tissue paper flowers. Then, send each of your guests home with one of your homemade creations.
Dying eggs in an assortment of bright colors is a favorite Easter craft and tradition. Try a unique look with marbled Easter eggs. After your dyed eggs are completely dry, dip them into a mixture of 1 cup warm water, 20 drops of food coloring, and one tablespoon of vegetable oil and gently roll them around until you notice a marbleized look. Blot the egg with a paper towel to remove excess water and oil and let them dry before putting them on display.
Temporary tattoos are popular these days and are also readily available. Try tattooed eggs this year for a simple way to decorate your dyed eggs. Stick temporary tattoos on dyed eggs (make sure the eggs are completely dry first!), or make your own tattoos by creating a sheet full of Easter- or Spring-themed images and copying them onto temporary tattoo paper.
