Are you looking for super-easy Easter and spring decorating ideas?

All of these ideas will only take a few minutes to make, promise.
Easter and Spring Decorating Ideas
Easter Subway Art
Just download, print, and frame this free Easter art (8×11). It doesn’t get any easier. If you don’t have a frame, just glue it to your wall with washi tape that you can easily remove later.
Clothespin Egg With a Surprise
I would do this with cardboard paper instead of wood.
All-Natural Easter Egg Dye Recipe
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.
So if you don’t want to dye your Easter eggs with food colors, what can you do? You can dye them with natural colors, like beets.
These soft natural egg dyes are so beautiful, don’t you agree? Here is a tutorial I wrote about dying Easter eggs naturally.
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.
Seeing this, I’m glad I didn’t donate that square vase I have to our thrift store.
Don’t put water into the vase with the Peeps — fill a smaller vase with water for the flowers so the Peeps don’t dissolve.
Healthy Easter Egg Hunt
Have the kids hunt for their lunch, or surprise them with this whole egg carton full of eggs filled with healthy treats in plastic eggs!
DIY Daffodil Candy Cups
You can make these cute table decorations with the kids and fill the cups with organic/all-natural jelly beans.
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.
I did something similar for this easy Easter tablescape:
Brown Paper Bag Basket
This brown paper bag 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.) or even scraps of fabric.
This is another great craft project you can do with your kids.
Decorating With Baby Food Jars
How adorable is this?
Just clean a baby food jar or any glass jar you would have otherwise thrown out, find a few twigs, and buy inexpensive fake butterflies on Amazon or at the craft store to make this spring decoration everyone will be talking about.
