Easter Decorations That Bring Spring Cheer ~ Candy colored eggs, crisp tulips and bunny miniatures, Oh My! you'll find all of these traditional Easter elements in this series of homemade decorations, upgraded to springtime perfection.

To make this tower of treats, tape cut-to-fit craft paper around two empty 32-ounce yogurt cartons. Hot-glue an upside-down carton inside a large orchard basket, then glue a medium basket on top. Repeat with other carton and small basket. Fill with faux grass and goodies.

If you're handy with a sewing machine, these colorful paper place cards can be made in three easy steps. Tutorial here.

For a delicate (and edible) centerpiece, push branches into foam inside a white-chocolate basket and hang chocolate eggs by a thread looped through the foil. Elevate basket and surround with grass and Easter treats.


Follow the easy pattern to make this chunky arm-knit bunny that will delight both kids and adults alike. Tutorial here.

For an edible centerpiece, brush a mix of red and yellow food coloring on waffle cones. Let dry on waxed paper. Fill green cellophane with jelly beans, tie with raffia, and plant cones in a shallow container of wheatgrass.


These large-scale origami bunnies would be an adorable decoration to add to your kids' egg hunt. Tutorial here.

This cheeky DIY — spelling out "Spring" on eggs atop actual springs — is a silly and fun way to bring Easter cheer to your home. Using robin's egg colored paint invokes the sense of nature coming alive after a long winter.

A woodsy vase echoes these flowers' country-garden vibe. For the container, cut 30 to 40 twigs to the height of a glass vase, then lightly hot-glue them to its surface, a few inches at a time. Finish with jute twine tied in a bow. For the flowers, bundle the hydrangeas first, then insert Queen Anne's lace. Keep fresh by misting.

Showcase DIY speckled eggs in a nest of wheatgrass. First, dye hard-cooked eggs in pastel shades (or paint craft eggs). Then make flecks: Dilute brown acrylic paint with water until it's the consistency of cream. Dip an old toothbrush into the paint and, with the brush a few inches from the egg, run your finger across the bristles, splattering paint onto the shell (lay egg horizontally, splatter, let dry, rotate, and repeat).

Turn the incredible edible into a darling bud vase. Chip an opening at one end of the egg, empty it out, and secure the shell to a mirror with candle wax. Fill the shell with water and place a fresh flower inside.

We love a new spin on a classic decoration, and this bunny's frame comes from simple wire hangers and leftover fabric scraps. Tutorial here.

Overflowing from a vintage wire egg carrier, these coffee-filter flowers are a charming way to welcome brunch visitors. Tutorial here.

With a little bit of craft paint and wooden bunny cutouts you can upcycle an old cutting board into a decorative wall hanging in just a few steps. Tutorial here.

DIY these simple gold leaf vases for Easter and use them again for other spring events like a Mother's Day brunch or a bridal shower. Tutorial here.

You could use these adorable bunny lollipops — made with just some tissues, twine, paper and glue — as place cards or as toppers on your Easter cake. Tutorial here.

Genius DIY discovery: Paint chips cut into ovals look just like cute, striped eggs! Snag a few from a hardware store and string them together to create this (basically free) craft.
