Outdoor Easter decorations can be super easy to DIY!

  1. Using an awl, poke a small hole at each end of 12 plastic eggs.

  4. String the eggs onto a 16-gauge wire, allowing an extra inch of wire at each end.
  5. Wrap one end around the other to form a wreath shape; cover wire ends with a pretty pastel ribbon and hang.

Jelly Bean Monogram

Easter Decoration

Add a touch of sweetness to your outdoor Easter decor! Instead of a wreath, hang a fun jelly bean monogram on your front door for spring.

  1. Paint a papier-mâché letter (available at crafts stores) using acrylic paint. (For a single-color decoration, match the paint color to the jelly beans; if you want a multicolor decoration, mix pastel jelly beans and a single color of paint for the letter.)
  2. Once the paint is dry, hot-glue the jelly beans to the front of the letter and let dry.
  3. Hot-glue a ribbon to the back of the letter to create a hanging loop, and hang on your front door. Try hanging in a large window for a cute Easter window decoration.

Editor's Tip: To protect the candy and make the decoration last year after year, spray it with a clear-coat finish and let dry before hanging.
