Wrapped Eggs

Perfect for your Easter centerpiece, these bright raffia eggs hold fun spring scenes. This simple Easter craft calls for just a few supplies and an overnight dry time. Create a few and fill them with small Easter candies or figurines. Make a statement at your Easter table and display the finished eggs on cake stands and plates.

Gilded Eggs

A little gold foil and lots of texture mean you'd never guess these gems started as humble plastic eggs. While gold leafing looks complicated, it's simple enough to make with kids. Vary the thickness of the gold leaf so some spots of the original color pop through. Add some glamour to your Easter table by displaying the finished eggs on gold-rimmed plates.

Papered Eggs

Brighten a batch of ceramic eggs by decoupaging them with graphic napkins. Yes, napkins. Colorful napkins give these Easter eggs punchy one-of-a-kind patterns. To get the look, choose white ceramic eggs in a variety of sizes. White eggs allow the napkin colors to pop. Add them to your Easter basket or use them in your spring decor.

Cracked Eggs

Call off the hunt. Chocolate eggs hide in plain sight in these hanging decorations that double as an Easter brunch favor.

Make them: These papier-mâché eggs come cracked, so all you need is chalk-finish paint for a soft look that highlights metallic grass and foiled candy. We chose a variety of hues. Look for them in crafts stores or online.
