      Use adorable Easter bunny stickers to amp up your everyday family photos for a cute and creative decoration. Simply stick bunny ears and mouths on the glass front of your favorite pics. For a little extra Easter fun, tell the kids that the Easter Bunny did it!

      Editor’s Tip: If stickers don’t come in the right sizes, use construction paper and tape to make your family all-ears.

    • Easter Chick Display

      Set out our creative egg and chick project for a fun Easter decoration. To make, start by gluing together two yellow pom-poms for the chick. Add a face using felt and fabric paint. Insert the chick into a prestretched balloon; blow up to desired size. 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.

    • Yellow Daisy Candleholders

      Place a rubber band around a votive holder and tuck in a bright marguerite daisy, then place in a small dish with water. March a line of these down the center of a table or place one at each setting for a fresh Easter decoration.

      Easter Bunny Eggcups

      Dress up plain wooden eggs with colorful felt hats and ears with this adorable Easter decorating project. First, secure a white wooden egg to the bottom of an eggcup with a dab of glue; let dry. Draw two eyes on the front of the egg, and paint facial features onto the cup. Get our pattern for the hat and ears, available below, and cut out. Trace the half circle onto a piece of colored felt and the ears onto a piece of white felt; cut out. Fold the hat in half, and glue the flat edges together; let dry. Flip right side out and fold up 1/2 inch to form a brim. Glue the white felt ears to the inside of the brim.

      Easter Egg Embroidery Art

      Simple embroidery patterns make this colorful Easter egg decoration a breeze. Get our patterns, available below, and print out. Put a 12-inch-square piece of thin white fabric over the pattern, and use a pencil to lightly transfer the design. Center the fabric on the inner embroidery hoop, and secure the outer hoop over it. Trim the excess fabric with scissors and hot-glue to the inside of the inner hoop.

      Now you're ready to stitch your egg design! Stitch the border of the egg first, and follow with the egg details (this is so you can tie each end to border). When you're finished stitching, tie a bow on top of the hoop to conceal the screw and hang.

      Potted Plant Display

      Nothing blooming outside yet? Create a garden view with an improvised indoor window box in time for Easter. Line up small potted plants or flowering bulbs on a sill, then fence them in with wire garden-bed edging propped on the sill or stapled to the underside.

    • 21 of 30

      Paper 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.

      Easter Butterfly Tree

      Inside or out, this tree signals that spring is in the air. 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.

      Flowers-&-Vegetables Display

      Carrots and lettuce leaves arranged around the inside of the wide vases create a unique look.
