11 Egg-cellent Easter Crafts
Bunnies, chick-a-dees, Easter baskets — oh my — don’t let these spring crafts hop on by!
Celebrate Easter and welcome a new season with handmade projects, templates, and even a DIY board game. Whether you’re preparing for a scavenger hunt or sending “hoppy” mail to some “bunny” you love, spring into the perfect craft project below!
As winter’s snow melts, so can your spring-themed bead designs! Use peg boards and melty beads to create cute bunnies, vibrant Easter eggs, and other fun designs. Attach magnets to transform the crafts into festive decorations for a fridge, locker, or even the blackboard!
Paint pastel patterns with a fun tape-resist technique! Switch up the egg-dying traditions by adding watercolors into the mix — paint in-between the taped sections of an egg-shaped card to resemble a dyed Easter egg. Then, send the cards to friends and family to wish them a “hoppy” Easter!
With Just A Little Creativity, you can create the perfect reusable crafts in five simple steps — paint wooden eggs in pastel colors, then splatter a little white and brown for a realistic finishing touch. Arrange them in a decorative basket as a centerpiece — the best part? These speckled wooden Easter eggs never spoil!
Put a squishy spin on your Easter cards with 3D characters! Upcycle bottle caps into adorable bunnies and chicks using paints, fuzzy sticks, and wiggly eyes. Glue each one to card stock, then finish the project by adding a festive phrase with foam stickers, like “Hoppy Easter” or “Have an Egg-cellent Day!”
Customize your own Easter basket for the annual scavenger hunt! Glue mini craft sticks around a paper cup and create a handle by threading a fuzzy stick through each side. Once you’ve painted and embellished your basket, use it to collect the sweet Easter goodies you find!
Hop over to one of our favorite craft blogs, Feels Like Home, and create a craft stick Easter bunny! With this advanced craft, you’ll decorate the outside of a round container with craft sticks, paints, and glue to transform it into a bright, cheerful bunny — just add a tea light inside!
Transform a paper cup into an adorable bunny borough! Design the white pom creature on a craft stick and cut a hole at the base of the decorated cup for a silly peek-a-boo moment.
Take a crack at crafting an Easter surprise! Color in our basket and cracked egg templates and glue them to clothespins — create bunnies and chicks with poms and attach them to the other side of the clothespin. Then, pinch the clothespin to reveal the creature hidden inside the surprise Easter basket or egg!
Upgrade a mini flower pot into a mischievous bunny decoration! Add white and pink foam and poms to the side of the pot to make it look like a bunny is head-first inside a bucket of fuzzy stick carrots. Place this hungry bunny in a garden or at your desk for a silly spring scene!
Bring on the glitter as you customize three Easter-themed printables! Whether you use our spring embellishment pack or vibrant glitters, the creative possibilities are endless. Add a little sparkle wherever you go by hanging the printables up or sharing them with someone who loves springtime!
What do you get when you mix spring with a classic board game? Chickers! Paint a checkers board on a canvas with fun pastel paints — then, create cute bunnies and chick-a-dees with embellished poms. Learn the rules of the game along the way and hop these characters across the board with family and friends for hours of play!
