Salt dough is easy to whip up with ingredients you’ve already got in your house. Think of it like air dry clay and mould it into a simple Easter egg shape. Once painted, these can be used as ornaments, as garland hangings or even place holders!

Easter Bunny Paper Garland

A garland is always a safe bet to craft as you can do it at any age. Get yourself some twine and patterned paper and cut some bunny shapes (or even a chick or an egg!) and attach them all together to make a seasonal paper garland! Elevate your Easter bunny garland by adding some cute pom pom tails for an extra dimension.

Pom poms are such a great craft because homemade pom poms look as good as ones from the shop. If you have some spare yarn lying around, make some pom poms and add some big bunny ears to make a simple and minimal Easter wreath! Finish it off with a ribbon of your choice and hang it on your door!

Easter Egg Ornaments

We all have paper roll tubes lying around and they make such a versatile crafting material. These baskets are a simple paper roll tube wrapped in decorated lollipop sticks with a pipe cleaner handle. Perfect for collecting all of your chocolate eggs in an Easter egg hunt!

Egg Carton Wreath

One of my favourite craft materials, and one that is perfect for Easter, is empty egg cartons. Use your leftover egg cartons and dissect them to make these beautiful colourful Spring flowers. Not only do they naturally make your craft 3D, but they provide a tactile texture and can be painted easily. Place and attach these into a wreath shape and there you have it!

Easter Bunny Pendants

Decorations and ornaments are not limited to Christmas, these concertina paper bunnies are so cute and easy to make. Craft mini versions to hang from your plants or big versions to decorate walls!

Pressed Flower Eggs

Pressed flowers always make such a big impact with relatively little effort! Select some colourful flowers and get yourself some 3D eggs (you can get ceramic, polystyrene or wood) and glue your flowers flat on the surface. These look great placed in a centrepiece bowl or to decorate your living space!

Upcycled Woven Basket

Some of my favourite crafts are upcycling old materials. We all have some thick paper bags hanging around the kitchen from grocery shopping or takeaways so why not reuse these and transform them into something else? See how Lia has made an old paper bag into a beautiful woven basket which is perfect for collecting up your Easter treats!

Easter Suncatchers

With the weather getting warmer and the sun slowly peeking through, suncatchers are a great way to brighten up the home. Suncatchers are surprisingly easy to make with just some tissue paper and glue yet can completely reinvent a space as sun soaked rainbows shine through your home.

Candy Jars

Easter is the time of chocolate and sweets so let’s upgrade these plain jars and make them ready for Easter. Add some character to these jars with some googly eyes and felt feet and they are ready to fill with your favourite treats!

Tin Can Planters

These tin can planters are a great upcycle project and would look great perched on a windowsill to grow herbs! We’re reaching the time of year to start sowing seeds in our kitchen gardens and what better way to get our kids involved than to create the planter too from an old (and clean) tin can.

Bunny Bags

Though a little more advanced, these cotton bunny bags are great all year around and will last for years. The minimal bunny face is perfect for kids and adults alike so let’s fill these pouches up with treats or even potpourri!

Kite Paper Window Flowers

A fun way to decorate your home without taking up space is by creating window decorations. These are made by folding translucent kite paper in a origami-like pattern which lets the sunlight through and livens up a space.

Hanging Easter Posies

Hanging flowers are always a delicate and fun way to display nature but to make it Easter-themed, let’s use eggshells as a natural and biodegradable ‘planter’. You’ll need help from an adult as it can be fiddly but the payoff is worth it!

Egg Carton Daffodils

Once you’ve used up your eggs, let’s upcycle the egg carton by making a recycled flower centrepiece of daffodils. Nothing screams Easter and Spring like a fresh bunch of daffodils. So make your own by cutting your egg cartons into sections and painting them to make this gorgeous bunch of flowers. 

Yarn Carrots

Last on our list is woven yarn carrots! Grab yourself some cardboard, ribbon and yarn to make these cute little carrots. These take some concentration but it’s a good way to spend an afternoon focused on a crafty task!!
