DIY Easter Decorations to Make at Home

Easter is just around the corner, and it's the perfect time for families to come together to enjoy each other's company and create special memories. With the little ones off school and nursery, for many of us, it’s also a rare chance to spend some quality time with them and work on fun activities together!

If you’re looking for some Easter-inspired decorations to put up around the house, why not get your little one involved in the crafts and make some together? Here are some fun and easy DIY Easter decoration ideas to get you started.

Bunny Garland

Bunny garlands are an easy and fun decoration that can be hung across your fireplace, doorway, or wall. 

What you’ll need:

  • Pom-poms
  • Pink felt
  • String or twine

Start by cutting the pink felt into small triangles to create bunny ears. Glue the ears onto the top of the pom-poms and string them onto the twine. If your pom-poms don’t come with a loop attachment to hang them on, glue this on with some thin string or elastic. Once done, hang the garland wherever it looks best around the house, and you’ll have a cute bunny-themed decoration that will make everyone smile!

Easter Wreath

A wreath is a classic way to add a festive touch to your front door, but buying them premade certainly isn’t cheap. Instead, make your own with your little one this year for a special touch, and save some money while you're at it!

What you’ll need: 

  • Foam or wire wreath form
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Gardening wire 

First, glue the Easter eggs onto the foam wreath form, leaving a small space between each egg (this will be easiest to do with a hot glue gun, but make sure to do this step yourself or closely supervise your little one around the glue gun). Once the eggs are securely placed, use the floral wire to create a loop at the top of the wreath for hanging.

If you want to go all-out with your wreath, you could add some of the felt bunnies mentioned in the bunny garland, some ribbon, or even some small felt chicks!

Easter Egg Bouquet

This one’s really fun and the perfect chance to let your little one’s creativity go wild! 

What you’ll need:

  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Paint and small brushes
  • Wooden skewers or sticks
  • A jar or vase
  • Optional: added stems and greenery

Start by painting or decorating some hard-boiled eggs however you’d like. Let your little one go wild with the different paint colours, and add some googly eyes if you really want your eggs to come to life!

Once decorated and dried, insert a skewer or wooden stick into the bottom of each egg or glue gun this on if easier. Arrange the eggs in a vase or jar with some greenery, such as moss or grass, to create a stunning Easter centrepiece or window sill bouquet.

Decorative Egg Basket

Nothing says Easter quite like a basket of eggs! If you've got an extra basket lying around the house, or one that might only be needed for an hour or so on Easter morning for the egg hunt, why not make a decorative basket of eggs to display on the dining table, window sill, or anywhere else around the house?

What you’ll need:

  • Hard-boiled or plastic eggs 
  • A basket of some sort (ideally wicker)
  • Whatever you want to decorate your eggs with
  • A teddy 

The fun in this one comes with decorating the eggs. Whether you’ve got some plastic eggs going spare or use hard-boiled eggs, this is a chance to let your little ones decorate them however they’d like. 

Paint fun patterns on the eggs, make them look like your favourite cartoon character, or even wrap them in fun fabric you’ve got around the house.

Arrange these in the basket, maybe on top of a patterned tea towel or some tissue paper, and pop your bunny or Easter-themed teddy in there with them! Now, you’ve got a cute Easter basket decoration to display wherever it looks best.

These are just a few fun and creative Easter to try with the kids or even on your own this year! Make sure to closely supervise little ones around hot glue guns if you do try any of these out, and tag us in your finished product to be shared on our story: @yourbabyclubuk
