If you are anything like me, the long months between Christmas and Easter have left you itching to begin a new holiday project. Well, you’re in luck! As Easter approaches, the time has come to break out the jelly beans and plastic Easter eggs. I am here to share with all you DIY ladies like myself, three adorable Easter themed home decor crafts guaranteed to impress even the Easter Bunny!
Jelly Bean Topiary
Pot or jar (size of your choice)
Dowel (length of your choice)
Moss or Easter Grass
Hot Glue Gun
To begin, you must first insert one end of the dowel into the Styrofoam ball and the other end into the floral foam. Then, go ahead and fire up that well used hot glue gun and begin securing those jelly beans (pastel colors are fabulously festive) to the Styrofoam ball, making sure to cover it completely. Go ahead and munch on a few! After the ball is covered and you’ve had your fill of jelly beans, go ahead and place the floral foam into your pot or jar and cover with moss or Easter grass to dress up your presentation a bit. Add some decorative ribbon or leave your creation “naked” and you’re all done!
Egg Shell Flower Centerpiece
1 Dozen Eggs
Flowers (Fabric or Fresh)
Decorative Container of your Choice
The most difficult part of this craft is the very first step, so once this is accomplished, it will be smooth sailing the rest of the way. You must begin by carefully cracking only the very tip of the egg. After you have done this, you can take a breath. The hard part is over! Now, simply wash out the egg, add water if you opted for fresh flowers and place the empty egg shells into your decorative container. Using your scissors, cut the flowers, leaving 3 to 4 inches of stem and arrange them in your egg shells however your heart desires. Voila! You now have a beautiful centerpiece for the breakfast table on Easter Sunday!
Chocolate Easter Egg Bouquet
Chocolate Easter Eggs
2 Fold Paper Napkins (Colored)
Green Floral Tape
This craft is particularly beautiful and delicious! Start by spearing those yummy chocolate eggs with your wooden skewers. You must then cut your napkins in half to achieve a nice square shape. Drape those newly shaped napkins around your eggs and secure them around the wooden skewers with the floral tape. Continue wrapping the tape around the skewers until your “stem” is completely green and the wood is no longer showing. Place these adorable (and edible) “flowers” into a vase of your choice and you’re sure to impress any visitors you may have this season.
Good luck and have fun creating these darling DIY crafts! I’m glad to have been of help and enjoy your holiday, folks!
