Sustainable Easter Craft Roundup
From Easter to Earth Day, April is an egg-cellent time to make adorably sustainable craft projects! Upcycle at-home materials to decorate your front door, send “hoppy” mail, or host fun Easter Sunday activities every “bunny” will enjoy. Fill your baskets with some of our favorite ideas below!
No Spoil Speckled Eggs
With Just A Little Creativity, you can create the perfect (reusable!) easter eggs with a coat of your favorite pastels and a splatter of white and brown for a realistic touch. Display them as a centerpiece for your Easter get-togethers — the best part? These speckled wooden eggs never spoil!
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.
Floral Egg Carton Wreath
Decorate the door of creative possibilities with a D.I.Y. wreath! Add vibrant colors to individual egg carton wells and glue them all on a large piece of round cardboard. This craft from Our Potluck Family is the perfect Easter greeting for all your guests to see as they arrive at your door.
Have a Crafty Morning with this quick and easy bunny project! For a more sustainable approach, trade the paper for recycled brown paper bags — or fill the available template with rice, colored pasta, or even natural materials you find during your Easter egg hunt, like sticks and grass!
Festive Cupcake Liner Bouquet
Spring is fresh, new, bright… And with a cupcake liner flower bouquet, those qualities never fade away! These hand-crafted flowers are the perfect color pop for your coffee table or quick party favors for friends and family.
Pastel Collage Garland
Gather old magazines & newspapers and upcycle them into a festive garland! Enjoy Easter Sunday with a creative activity for everyone — Make It Your Own by brushing watercolors onto paper strips, then glue them onto egg-shaped paper, and string them together to create a garland to hang year after year.
Send handmade 3D Easter greeting cards this season! Transform bottle caps into adorable bunnies and chicks using paints, fuzzy sticks, and wiggly eyes. Glue each cap to cardstock, then add a punny phrase with foam stickers like, “Hoppy Easter” or “Have an Egg-cellent Day!”
Rockin’ Easter Eggs
Get in touch with nature! Follow this Projects for Kids tutorial to create your very own Easter egg rock art with Made By Me®. Brighten your walkway with pastel colors or place your masterpieces in the backyard for an Easter egg hunt surprise!
Spring Into STEM
Learn something new this season! Conduct a tie-dye experiment with paper towels and watercolors to add a burst of science to your crafty celebration. Watch water move against gravity to blend secondary colors across paper towels. When they’re dry, cut them into fun, festive shapes like eggs and bunnies!
