Quick and Easy Easter Decorations
Easter Picture Display
Use adorable Easter bunny stickers to amp up your everyday family photos for a cute and creative Easter decoration. Simply stick bunny ears and mouths on the glass front of your favorite pics. For a little extra 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.
Cut Fresh Flowers
These bright purple Easter flowers prove sometimes simple is best. Showcase the bounty of spring with a trio of cut blooms in simple vases. Look for early spring flowers like hyacinth, anemones, and iris.
Hanging Easter Egg Decoration
A bundle of pastel Easter eggs works as a festive decoration for your front door. Wrap plastic foam egg shapes (available at crafts supply stores) with crepe paper, and attach the ends with glue or a small straight pin. Add yellow ribbon, secured with small straight pins, and leave a long end for tying. Gather the eggs at various lengths and tie the ribbons together. Finish with a pretty bow, and hang the decoration from a removable adhesive hook or wreath hanger.
Bring the outside in with a free-form hanging moss planter. Perfect for spring, this handmade Easter decoration lasts throughout the season. Fill your kokedama with fresh violas and hang above your Easter table.
Fabric-Wrapped Spring Containers
Welcome Easter with pretty pails dressed up to fit spring plants or to serve as your Easter baskets. To determine how much fabric you'll need, wrap fabric around the container, allowing extra fabric on all edges; trim. Cut openings for the handle. Fold under all edges to get a smooth look. Spread decoupage medium across the pail, place trimmed fabric atop the decoupage medium, and smooth. Apply a second coat of decoupage medium atop the fabric while working your way around the container.
Living Spring Wreath
Celebrate the season with a handmade Easter wreath that showcases the beauty of spring flowers. Fill your wreath with an assortment of small flowering plants like violas and pansies. Display this spring wreath on your front door or fence.
This Easter centerpiece is all about the colors of spring. It's as easy as placing small arrangements of spring flowers on a white tray. Look for colorful blooms like tulips and hyacinth. Fill in spaces with dyed Easter eggs and you're done!
Easy Yarn-Wrapped Easter Wreath
Kids will love this so-easy Easter craft! All you need is a wreath form, some yarn, and a few springtime embellishments. Let kids decide which colors to use and where, and mark the different areas on the wreath form. Adults should start and end each yarn color -- use hot glue to secure the yarn ends before and after wrapping. When kids are finished wrapping, hot-glue spring elements, such as faux flowers, to your wreath for accents. Add a pretty ribbon to hang on a door or wall.
Tiered Easter Egg Display
Tiered serving stands aren't just for dessert! Create a fun Easter centerpiece with faux nests and colorful dyed Easter eggs. Simply stack them on a cake or serving stand and add fresh flowers or greenery.
Paint-Chip Easter Egg Art

Attach the paint-chip eggs to a 12x12-inch piece of scrapbook paper with adhesive foam dots. Frame the paper and hang for a so-simple crafty Easter decoration.
Easter Chick Display
Set out our creative egg and chick project for a fun DIY 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.
Make your Easter decor extra special this year with a fresh flower chandelier. Strands of cut flowers and greenery add the perfect whimsical touch when hung above your dining room table or Easter buffet.

Framed Paper Easter Bunnies
Need some Easter decorating ideas? How about these oh-so-easy framed bunnies. All you need is 6-inch-square window boxes, fabric, scrapbook paper, and our bunny pattern (available below).

Easter Egg Garland
Our Easter-worthy decoration is a remarkably simple way to amp your home up for the holiday -- even the kids can get involved in making the craft! Simply cut egg shapes out of paper, decorate with paint (let dry standing up for a cool, dripping look), and attach along a string to hang.
Easter-Inspired Fabric Garland
Set up your Easter mantel display with a fun pastel garland made from fabric strips. A mix of ribbon, fringe, and fabric are tied to a single ribbon to make the garland; add small plastic Easter eggs hanging from fishing wire to finish the decoration.
Egg Carton Bird Decorations
Adorn a pot of spring flowers with these oh-so-adorable birds made from recycled egg cartons and plastic eggs. Paint single egg-carton cups and wooden dowels with bright colors; let dry. Glue each dowel to the back of an eggcup, then glue a plastic egg into each one. Add a matching feather to the back of each bird, and paint a corner of the eggcup gold or yellow to give your bird a beak.
Paper Egg Centerpiece
Make yourself a too-cute Easter centerpiece for just pennies that kids and adults will adore. Simply cut out Easter egg shapes from construction paper, and decorate using ribbon, markers, and stickers. Hang the eggs from a collection of pussy willow branches held in a vase or bucket.
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.
Springtime Door Decoration
Gather a bouquet of flowers -- real or silk -- into an umbrella for a door display full of country charm. Tie a ribbon around the umbrella to hold the bouquet in place, and add a few dyed, blown-out eggshells for extra Easter fun.
Editor's Tip: If using real flowers, create a simple vase with water in a plastic resealable bag. Secure at the base of the flower stem with a rubber band.
Easter Branch Bouquet
Hot-glue several pink flowers onto branches for a fresh Easter look. This is a great, long-lasting alternative to a floral spring arrangement -- or a complementary piece!
Editor's Tip: To secure the vase -- and to make it more festive -- fill with glass pebbles, decorated eggs, or Easter candy (just don't plan on eating it!).
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.
Framed Easter Postcard
Turn a simple postcard into seasonally sweet artwork. Look for vintage Easter postcards at flea markets or find reproductions at bookstores. Adhere them to decorative paper, then frame. Attach a ribbon or string of beads to hang with style.
Tea Time Flower Display
Red tulips and white roses are awe-inspiring inside a stacked cup and kettle. Using two different colors adds interest, while the matching green dishes keep the display cohesive.
Simple Easter Mantel Display
Cut plant sprigs and place them in vases and bottles for a simple mantel display that you can keep up throughout spring.
Editor's Tip: Choose vases of various sizes and colors to create an interesting arrangement.
Flower Easter Cups
Form a flowerlike favor by nesting a mini paper baking cup inside a standard-size one. Perch both on an eggcup and fill with an Easter treat. For a place card, prop a tag between the liners.
Carrots and lettuce leaves arranged around the inside of the wide vases create a unique look. Keep the vegetables propped up by placing a smaller vase inside the larger one and laying the vegetables in between. Wrap string around the vases for a homespun accent. Place a decorative bird or bunny nearby to give the display an Easter touch.
Sweet Spring Wreath
Greet your holiday guests with an Easter wreath that celebrates the beauty of paper flowers. Use stencils to create paper butterflies and flowers in a variety of colors. Add them to a plain moss faux moss wreath and you've got an easy Easter decoration that lasts all spring long.
