Add character to your indoor and outdoor space with pastel palettes and fresh textures, from your tablescape to your spring porch. Making your Easter decorations will put a big grin on your face, save you money and last but not least, impress guests!
1. Make a sweet and simple mobile
Are you looking for a different kind of Easter decoration? Beautifully patterned quail eggs hang from the ceiling next to decorative mini nests and chicken eggs in various sizes in this striking mobile. Delicate macrame pendants contain extra-large eggs that, when filled with water, serve as mini vases for colorful, cut geraniums.
To make the breakable egg cartons, gently remove tops from raw eggs, drain and rinse egg whites and yolks, or remove tops from cooked eggs, spoon out contents and gently clean .
2. Macramé Rabbit Plant Boxes
Give macrame plant hangers a seasonal twist with these rabbit plant pods. They are a great way to display smaller plants in your home, especially as you embrace all of spring with seasonal details to refresh your interior. This is the ideal project for beginners because it focuses on the square knot, one of the first knots you learn.

3. DIY Floral Chair Ties
Take the simple dining chair to the next level with a quick floral fix that will delight guests, adding that extra special finishing touch of beauty.

Alternate colors on each seat for a cheerfully relaxed, mix-and-match approach.
4. Pom pom bunnies
For a fun, family-friendly Easter craft idea, invite a fluff (the collective term for a group of bunnies — too cute!) Pompom bunnies (opens in new tab) craft idea. They make the cutest touch on the Easter cake, shelves or pretty much anywhere they go.
5. Boho Hat Wall
For a contemporary take on the traditional idea of an Easter hat, floral and upcycling fans can upgrade a painted wall by turning old straw hats into wall planters for colorful geraniums and seasonal flowers. This inventive, upcycling idea gives off a lot of holiday vibes and is super easy to make.
6. Easter Mantle Landscape
Decorating a mantel for Easter is easily done, with fresh tufts from your garden.
Place a large branch in a striking vase and decorate it with a recycled paper garland and pinned feathers. Spread pastel-colored bud vases along the mantel filled with mixed fresh and dried flowers for textural interest. Fill any gaps with chocolate eggs and bright candy, and add a few seasonal figurines tied with ribbon for a playful twist.
Don’t stop there…Fill the fireplace with an assortment of Easter eggs and voluminous foliage to bring the vision to life, then decorate the fireplace with baskets planted with cheerful daffodils and pastel-colored dried grasses.
*Styling tip – for an extra DIY detail, spray can lids for jam jars and toy animal figures in pastel shades and glue them together when dry. Fill the jam jars with mini eggs and feathers, and voila – a feast for the eyes and tummy!

9. Wink to rustic materials
Design experts at Wren say, “If a neutral look is more to your taste, you can still create a themed tablescape using nudes and metallics to impress your guests. Choose a cotton tablecloth and combine with linen napkins. Then dip some hollowed out eggs in some gold leaf or silver to create a pop of color. If you want an eye-catcher on your table, tie the look together with some pampas grass in a striking glass vase.’
10. Crochet Carrot Easter Egg Cozy
Fill your basket with veggie patch goodness, and get yarn to whip up this super cute one Carrot Easter eggs (opens in new tab), designed by Once Upon a Cheerio. They even have a drawstring top to safely house mini eggs or other nuggets of fun – finders keepers!
11. DIY Easter Wreath
Enjoy an afternoon of crafty beauty making an Easter wreath to decorate your front door, home decor, or anywhere you like. To create a lasting design like the beautiful one shown here from The happy blossoms (opens in new tab), you need a bunch of colorful dried flowers; a metal wire wreath (size, shape and style depending on preference, but a ribbed design makes for easy attachment); some florist wire and floristry scissors.
Start by separating and making small bunches of dried flowers and trim the lengths. Attach the individual trusses to the wire frame by wrapping the base stems tightly with the reel wire. Overlap each bunch to avoid any gaps. Continue this process, in one direction, until you are happy with the opacity and effect. Maybe you want a full wreath, or do you prefer a minimalist design that leaves some of the wire wreath exposed? You really can’t go wrong, and the end result will be something truly unique and beautiful that you can use again and again. Finish with a ribbon to hang if desired.
12. Easter Barn Makeover
For a fun DIY weekend project, paint your shed and transform it into an oasis of wonder, perfect for storing all those Easter eggs… Choose two to three complementary pastel shades to paint the interior and exterior (don’t forget to paint the floor and ceiling!) and when it’s dry, create a cozy space with cozy cushions, throws and a tactile rug. And since it’s Easter, say yes to garlands, seasonal wreaths and of course baskets galore, because you know what…
13. Put a literal stamp on it
Decorate everything from homemade stationery to gift boxes, storage boxes and even textiles with seasonal stamps and colored inks. It’s the little personal touches that make all the difference! This Hoppy Pows Easter Bunny stamp set from Amazon (opens in new tab) is cute to boot.
14. Group Personalized Eggs
For a more virtuous Easter egg that can be used as a place setting, room decor, or token gift, use spray paint to “dust” the top third of boiled, ceramic, or wooden eggs in a chosen shade before stamping the stamp of a loved one’s name, or even a favorite word on the egg face. Or, for a similar, less messy idea that looks oh-so-pretty, tie a simple piece of colored twine around each egg and tuck a sprig of fresh or dried foliage inside.
