Easy Peasy Easter Craft Ideas

Here are several Easter craft ideas, most you and the kids can do together!

I created this collection so that anyone can give it a go with making something fun!

Have fun and let me know what you decide to make!

Peeps Place Card Holders:

Sorry, these bunnies aren’t edible. They’re actually made out of clay, which means they’ll last for years to come. Though, who are we kidding? The shelf life of Peeps is pretty long, too.

DIY Paper Flowers:

Supplies:

  • paper cupcake liners
  • Scissors
  • floral wire
  • floral tape
  • floral stamens (optional)

 

Directions:

Fold cupcake liners in half and cut out petal and fringe shapes.

Fold a piece of floral wire in half and twist it around faux flower stamens. Poke the wire through the center of three to four paper liners.

Wrap floral tape around the base of the liners and continue to wrap down the “stem.”

Egg Carton Spring Chicks:

Recycling takes on a new, adorable meaning with these chicks. After making a delicious Easter brunch, save the empty egg cartons for a fun Easter craft for kids.

Supplies:

  • egg cartons
  • acrylic paint & brush
  • glue, scissors, marker
  • construction paper

 

Directions:

  1. Cut apart two egg holders from the carton and trim off the excess on the edges.
  2. Glue the two pieces together.
  3. Paint and allow to dry.
  4. Add a beak and some eyes.

Easter Egg Floral Centerpiece

Dye eggs in varying shades of pink — or whichever color you choose — and place them in a large vase to create an ombre effect.

Add flowers for a seriously chic centerpiece.

Fabric Bunny Box

Fill a small box with treats before wrapping it up like a bunny, complete with fluffy fabric ears and a pom-pom tail. It doesn’t get much sweeter than this!

Bunny Bags

Pack their leftovers or egg hunt finds in these adorable bunny bags, so they can bring the holiday cheer back home with them. Cut paper bags to make bunny-ear shapes, then draw on a bunny face with a black marker. Finish it off with a pom-pom tail.

Pipe Cleaner Eggs

If dipping and dyeing isn’t your thing, try this less-mess decorating idea.

First things first: Make sure your egg is completely empty and clean, or go with a faux craft egg instead.

Then attach one end of a pipe cleaner (you’ll need three to four in the same color) to the top center of the egg with a small dot of hot glue and let it dry.

Carefully coil the pipe cleaner around the egg, adding small dots of hot glue as you go.

Snip off any excess pipe cleaner once you have reached the bottom of the egg and secure the end with one last dot of glue.

Mandarin Easter Bunny

If you want a craft perfect for your little ones, this mandarin Easter bunny will have them looking forward to the spring season. Plus, it’s an adorable craft using pom-poms and white embroidery thread.

Supplies:

  • Wonderful Halos mandarins
  • toothpicks (or wooden coffee stirring sticks or popsicle sticks for younger kids)
  • 3″ pieces of thin wire (optional)
  • hot glue gun
  • small pink and white pom poms
  • white embroidery thread
  • pink and white felt
  • fabric scissors

Easter Egg Balloons

Ever realize balloons look just like Easter eggs upside down? Simply throw on some craft paint and you got yourself an Easter “egg” bouquet.

Embroidery Hoop Bunny

This embroidery hoop bunny is customizable, as you can choose any fun, colorful pattern you like to color its head, ears, and body. Plus, a fluffy yarn pom-pom tail makes it even cuter!

For the ears, cut them from burlap or use pipe cleaners to form the ears.

Add a bunny tail on the bottom for that finishing touch.

You can also add a bow under one of the bunny ears for a little more fun.

Pom Pom Chicks

Pom pom chicks may look fancy, but they’re actually really simple to make. All you need is some chunky yarn, felt, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and hot glue!

Supplies:

  • Yellow Chunky Yarn
  • Yellow and Orange Felt
  • Orange Pipe Cleaner (12 inches long)
  • Googly Eyes (mine were 7mm)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
