Mini pastel pinatas? Yes, please! Simply paper mache some balloons, cover with fringed crepe paper, and fill with candy. (Full tutorial is available…there are a few more steps than that, but nothing hard!) These are so adorable, you might not want to ever break them apart. Of course, it would be hard convincing the children to leave them alone…{found on ohhappyday}.

The days are getting lighter, so why not celebrate that fact by creating a breakfast nook “light” with a topiary tulip chandelier?

If you’re a DIYer, the chances are very high that you’ve already got a stash of baker’s twine in your craft cupboard. If not, it’s readily available at your local craft store, and I imagine it’s something you’ll want to have on-hand after seeing these cute twine-wrapped eggs. You’ll need some fake eggs (plastic, cardboard, or these are paper mache) and twine, then follow along the video tutorial. Done and done!{found on hgtv}.

Mason jars are one of the DIY world’s magic tools. They’re versatile and functional and pretty all at the same time. This one, for example, has been spray painted a pretty aqua color (Krylon’s Catalina Mist) and made into a vase for fresh tulips. Nothings says Easter like white tulips, and nothing says “Quick & Easy DIY Project” like spray painting something and being done. Bonus: the end result is beautiful and perfectly seasonal.[found on decorchick}.

Speaking of keeping things quick and easy, here’s a lovely spin on springtime Easter décor. Simply take some brown paper, shred it into strips, and carefully twist together into a nest shape. This is a great decoration for a modern style of Easter table or shelf, especially one where food is present and you don’t want to deal with germs from the real thing.

So festive!{found on eclecticallyvintage}.

How about this adorable felt carrot garland? Sew easy! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun.) Cut some strips of orange and green felt, loop them, and sew them together in the shape of a carrot. Then string them all together. Charming and fun. A green feather boa makes a delightful backdrop to the carrot garland.{found on site}.

Hanging fabric lanterns look soft and luxe…and are deceptively easy to make, which is always a good thing. Cut your fabric into circles, then glue them to the Chinese lanterns. These are great decorations to hang from the ceiling, over a mirror, over a chair, or anywhere in your home that could benefit from some lovely color and texture.{found on site}.

Welcome all springtime guests into your home with a fresh Easter flowered wreath on your front door. This one is very simple and includes materials that you likely have around the house or, if not, are easy to find at a craft store. You’ll need a twig wreath, some white flowers, a wire cutter to cut the flowers apart, pink beads, and glue. Hang the wreath from a ribbon on your front door, and let the season begin!{found on itsokayweresisters}.

Would you want to try an Easter egg terrarium? Absolutely. This unique spin on the traditional terrarium idea is fantastically festive and creative. And, best of all, all the materials you’ll need are found at your local craft store. You simply need some clear plastic eggs, a bit of dirt, fake flowers of your choice, and moss. Spray paint the backs of the eggs, then carefully load them up and group together until you have a delightful, and completely original, Easter display.{found on trendhunter}.

The idea of an Easter tree has been around for years – we’ve all seen eggs in a variety of colors and materials hanging from branches inside and out. But the idea of an Easter butterfly tree is a fresh spin off that old idea. This one is incredibly simple, involving paper butterflies hanging from twine off branches. I think the contrasting colored pot helps to make the whole decoration complete.{found on bhg}.

Paint some boards in spring-y Eastertime colors (they don’t necessarily have to all be pastels; throw in some deep hues for a more sophisticated look), then mount them on the back to a perpendicular board for stability. As a backdrop for other seasonal décor (think eggs and flowers), the boards are a simple and sure-fire way to spring your home into Easter.{found on site}.

Here’s a different and fun take on the traditional garland décor idea – take yours vertical, and take it ombre. You could use any Easter-themed cutout (these bunnies are adorable), and you really can’t go wrong with this simple, sweet DIY decoration.{found on titatoni}.

You’ll be amazed at how easy these sweet rustic carrots are to make…and at what they’re made out of! Some fake grass, newspaper, and colored twine. With a bit of tape to keep things in place. Aren’t they charming? Perfect for a piece of your Easter vignette or on their own, these are a creative step away from the traditional bunnies and eggs décor.{found on creeklinehouse}.

Jelly beans are not only an edible sugary delight, they are also a perfectly colorful DIY decoration tool, especially on these cute candy topiaries. You’ll need a small terracotta pot (these have been painted watery white), a dowel, Styrofoam ball, and some glue. Glue the jelly beans directly onto the Styrofoam ball, and eventually you’ll have a perfect Easter topiary or two. Unless you eat all the jelly beans before you get to it, which will slow your project’s completion down substantially.[found on craftysisters}.

To make similar yarn egg garlands, blow up some smaller balloons into an egg shape. Blow up some balloons, then wrap colorful string around them. Coat with watered-down glue and let them dry. Then pop the balloon, pull it out, and there you go. A perfectly Easter egg-shaped ball, great fodder for a mantel garland or hanging from some branches for an Easter tree.{found on site and tutorial}.

Taking the yarn-egg garland idea one step further, follow this photo tutorial to create a fabulous larger Easter egg. The color and texture make the egg versatile for your home, and the opportunity to cut a hole and fill the egg with more Easter décor is an added bonus.

What kind of DIY roundup would this be if it didn’t include some sort of Easter paint chip decoration? This one is colorful and fun and, as with all DIY paint chip projects, very versatile to fit your style and color scheme. Each egg is two-tone, and the garland is strung with both the tops and bottoms of the eggs being darker and lighter. You could change up the look by choosing different gradients of one Easter color, or greys, or anything you’d like.{found on modernparentsmessykids}.

We’ve all seen Easter baskets full of candy, full of gifts, even full of flowers…but it’s rare that we’ll see an Easter basket that’s actually made of flowers. (Or, at least, that looks like it’s made of flowers.) You’ll get a huge bang for your DIY buck with this simple project, involving only a woven basket, some floral wire, and plenty of sweet silk flowers from your local craft store. Cozy up and get ready to spend some time making your bloom basket beautifully unique.{found on site}.

In case you’re feeling a little crunched for time, you’re in luck. Some DIY projects are able to look fantastic and only take about three minutes, and this happens to be one of them. All you need are a larger square glass vase, a smaller round vase (that will fit inside the square one), and a bunch of jelly beans. Put your fresh flowers into the smaller water-filled vase, set the whole thing into the square vase, and pour the jelly beans around the smaller vase. Instant color, festivity, and (if you’re into sneaking Easter candy) deliciousness.
