Spring Tulip Wreath
Make your own gorgeous spring wreath with bunches of faux tulips. Wrap a wire wreath form with wide ribbon, then tuck bunches of small faux tulips into the ribbon folds. We made ours on an 18-inch wreath form ($5, Michaels), but you can use a smaller wreath to cut down on costs. Faux flowers can be expensive, so watch for sales and stock up on tulip bundles throughout the year so you’ll be ready to create this outdoor Easter decoration in the spring.

Cracked Easter Eggs
These hanging Easter eggs are the perfect place to display small figurines, trinkets, or holiday ornaments. We found the cracked paper mache eggs at the craft store and painted them with chalk paint. We chose different colors for the inside and outside of each egg, then filled the eggs with faux gold grass and foil-covered chocolate eggs once the paint dried. Display the finished Easter egg decorations on cut branches.

Plastic Easter Egg Wreath
If you have old plastic eggs bouncing around your holiday decor bins, put them to good use. Use patterned napkins and decoupage to transform ordinary plastic eggs into a colorful Easter door decoration. We used a variety of colors and patterns for a rainbow display, but you can use monochromatic packs of napkins for a more cohesive look.

Insert the chick into a pre-stretched balloon; blow up to desired size. Knot the balloon and spray with cooking spray. Dip colorful string in white glue and wrap coated 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
Easter decorations aren't just eggs and bunnies. For this pretty table display, wrap 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.

Easter Egg Embroidery Art
Simple embroidery patterns make this colorful Easter egg decoration a breeze. Print our free pattern or design your own egg! 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 then follow with the egg details (this is so you can tie each end to the 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 fun.

Easter Branch Bouquet
Hot-glue several pink flowers onto branches for a fresh look. This is a great, long-lasting alternative to a floral spring arrangement or a complementary piece.
