Easter and Spring Decorating Ideas For the DIY Challenged

by Dagmar Bleasdale on March 31, 2012

Easter is just around the corner, and I love decorating for it! But who has the time for elaborate decorations? Here are 10 DIY Easter and spring decor ideas that will only take a few minutes to make.

Easter Subway Art

Just download, print and frame this free Easter art (8×11). It doesn’t get any easier.

Clothespin Egg With a Surprise

I would do this with cardboard paper instead of wood.

All-Natural Easter Egg Dye Recipes

Synthetic food dyes found in most American candy have been linked to cancer, hyperactivity, and allergies, so they don’t enter our house if I can help it (more info here and here and here). These soft natural egg dyes are so beautiful, don’t you think?

Flower Centerpiece With Peeps

Along the lines of no food dyes, this is the only reason I would buy bunny Peeps – for a fun centerpiece. Now I’m glad I didn’t donate that square vase I have.

Healthy Easter Egg Hunt

Have the kids hunt for their lunch!

DIY Daffodil Candy Cups

You can make these cute table decorations with the kids and fill the cups with organic/all-natural jelly beans. I think Trader Joe’s jelly beans also don’t have food dyes.

Egg Cup Vases

Growing up in Germany, we would eat boiled eggs every Sundays, out of egg cup. I’ve found that Americans don’t eat them like that very often, but maybe you still have some pretty egg cups around you could use for this sweet Easter/spring display.

Brown Paper Bag Basket

This basket is so easy to make, and the kids can decorate it with crayons or Easter stickers.

Pretty DIY Easter Cards

I have a whole book of scrapbook paper I didn’t know what to do with until I saw this idea for pretty Easter egg cards you can make with left-over paper (scrapbook, wrapping paper, wall paper, etc.). Have the kids help you!

Decorating With Baby Food Jars

How adorable is this? Just clean a baby food jar, find a few twigs, and buy inexpensive butterflies at the craft store to make this spring decoration everyone will be talking about.

Get creative and have fun!

Bautiful ideas. I am going to have to steal the Egg Lunch idea for my 3 year old. He would love it!
