17 Must Try Easter Crafts and Egg Decorating Ideas!

I can't believe it is Easter week! If it has snuck up on you too and you're feeling unprepared I've got 17 ideas for Easter crafts, egg decorating, and activities for you to try this week. Just pick one and have fun!

1. Decorate Eggs in a New Way - Skip the Dye This Year




You can't let Easter come and go without decorating a few eggs! This year skip the real eggs and dye for some paper-mache eggs that you can enjoy next year too. Here are 8 simple ideas for you to try: Stenciled Eggs 1, Stenciled Eggs 2 , Flower Eggs, Lace Eggs, Paint Dipped Eggs, Neon Sticker Eggs, Ribbon Eggs, Tissue Paper Eggs

2. Plan a Special Brunch


I love planning a special Easter meal, even if it is just the four of us. You can find ideas from past Easter tables like napkins folded into bunnies and a pretty DIY ribbon runner. Next year, I would love to make it even more special by sending out a beautiful invite to family in advance: 



3. Make a Pretty Centerpiece for Your Easter Table


Not sure how to decorate your Easter table? Here are three inexpensive centerpiece options:

1. Make a bouquet from plastic Easter eggs! See my step-by-step tutorial or watch the video!


2. The simplest bouquet ever - fill a mason jar with baby's breath and then dot with these butterfly stickers. For a similar effect, use a blue mason jar or paint the inside of one.

3. Make the food the centerpiece! Decorate a paper cupcake stand and use it to display individual portions of food. Tutorial here.

4. "Egg" Your Neighbors!


I absolutely love this idea from my friends at Handmade Mood. Surprise your young neighbors by hiding a few eggs in their yard - what kid wouldn't LOVE that surprise?! Find all the details and free "You've Been Egged" printable here.

5. Host a Grown-up Egg Hunt


Grown-ups don't have to miss out on all the fun. I so want to try this Moonlight Egg Hunt after the kids are in bed - get all the details at Handmade Mood!
