Spring has finally sprung, with cute Easter bunny, chick and egg decorations everywhere you turn. If you’re tasked with entertaining the kids during the holidays, why not think about planning some egg-cellent craft ideas. It’s a great way for both adults and children to engage their creative minds and have fun with the new season. From cute paper cut-outs to fun egg decorating, we’ve got some fantastic top tips to ensure you have a cracking Easter.
Jazzy painted egg cartons
Not only will the kids have endless fun decorating your empty egg cartons, these also make for fantastic Easter gift boxes for friends and family. Start collecting your empty cartons, and decorate using a range of crafty supplies. The box is a blank canvas, so you can get as creative as you like here.
Paint your cartons in beautiful shades of pastel, and add patterns such as polka dots or eggs for a fun design. When your works of art are complete, leave to dry and then replace with eggs of the chocolate kind, or gift to your loved ones as a fun and sentimental offering from the children.
Monogram egg table place cards
If you’re inviting the family round for a delicious Sunday roast, why not get creative and ditch the usual table place cards for something a little more egg-citing? Source a batch of undyed farm eggs (you need these to be white), and using a small paintbrush, decorate with either tiny paint splats of gold paint or a fun polka dot pattern.
Use a quality, thick pen to write the initial of your guest’s name and there you have it! Easter-worthy table place eggs that your family are sure to love.
Cute plate bunnies
If your children are still quite young, plate bunnies are an easy craft that still provides all of the fun. Simply take a paper plate to use as your bunny face, and decorate with eyes, a nose, ears and whiskers.
Top tips — pipe cleaners make for great whiskers, and pom-poms are the perfect bunny noses. Simply craft the ears out of paper, attach to your plate et voila, a cute Easter bunny is yours!
A beautiful Easter wreath
If you’re looking to put your craft and creativity skills to the test, then why not look at making a fabulous Easter wreath to display in your home during the holiday period? This will add a lovely spring touch to the house, and creating your own décor is extremely rewarding.
Perfect Easter bunting
This is great for crafters of all abilities and makes for a lovely decoration for either the lounge or the children’s bedrooms. You can purchase bunting sets online, or make your own from scratch!
Decorate each paper triangle with an Easter-related picture or pattern. Use paints, glitter pens, and embellishments from a craft specialist to make sure your bunting is the centre of attention.
Happy crafting … !
