Be a Budget Bunny for Easter With Dollar Tree Decorations
If you love hunting for a bargain, then it makes sense to get the best value for any decorating or craft project that you have in mind. That's why it's important to stock up on items from your local dollar store (Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, or whichever store is near you) so that you always have things on hand when you're ready to make something.
You can even work with items already in your possession and modify them for Easter. For example, you can take a Christmas tree and adorn it with spring-themed items to change it to an Easter tree! Take inspiration from this list of dollar store Easter decorations to help you out.
Plastic Egg Wreath
This colorful plastic egg wreath was created with Easter grass and eggs from the dollar store and costs approximately $5 to make. (You can also buy plastic eggs in bulk online.) You could go with eggs in just one color or keep it multicolored—or, if you are feeling super creative, you could spray-paint the whole thing to a color of your choosing.
Put together a nice display with your findings. You could purchase an Easter card for the backdrop and then place items like chicks and eggs around it. You could also add battery-operated tea lights or fairy lights to brighten the space.
Egg Pick Centerpiece
Make a fun egg pick centerpiece for your spring table décor. Purchase egg picks and some floral foam. Then you can arrange the picks in the foam and place the "bouquet" in a vase of your choosing. Add some Easter grass or green shredded paper to enhance the appearance.
If you have lighted sticks, then you can add dollar store egg decorations onto the branches to create a wonderful arrangement. When Easter is over, you can decorate the sticks with other seasonal items, such as mini pumpkins for fall. These softly glowing sticks really are a good investment in terms of versatile home decorations!
Transform a Christmas tree for spring by decorating it with inexpensive dollar store items. You can use plastic eggs, chicks, flowers, nests, and anything else that takes your fancy. Don't forget to add some pretty feather boas in pastel shades, too.
Make your own Easter bunny by purchasing a dollar store wood bunny and covering it in furry yarn, felt, or another fabric. Don't forget a pompom tail! You can add accessories like jute carrots, too. This would look adorable hung on a wall of your choosing.

Egg Pick Planters
Make these adorable centerpieces with just a few supplies, including small terracotta pots, floral foam, Easter grass, and egg picks. Place your egg picks into the floral foam, then place the foam in the pot. Arrange the grass on top. You could also give these pretty planters as favors or gifts by adding gift cards or cash inside them.
Make this super cute bunny wreath for your front door using the following supplies from the dollar store:
- Two different-sized wreath forms
- Faux flowers
Glue the wreath forms one above the other to make the bunny's body and head, then bend faux flower vines into ovals to create the ears. Glue more faux flowers all over the wreath forms, and you're set!
To recreate this bunny planter, you'll need an oval-shaped planter, as well as two fluffy pompom balls: a large one and a small one. You'll also need white felt that you can cut into ovals to make the bunny's feet (optionally, you can also get pink felt to make its toes). Pop some floral foam into the oval planter and arrange the display as shown above.
Easter Wine Glass Candle Holders
Purchase dollar store wine glasses to make these adorable Easter wine glass candle holders. You can paint them in whatever colors you want (for example, yellow for chicks) and add details like eyes, noses, and beaks. Then flip them upside down and add candles—perfect for Easter table décor.
Apple Basket Fairy Garden
An apple basket (or two!) is transformed with Easter and spring miniatures to create this festive piece for your home. It would also look great on the porch with some fairy lights for ambience.
Eggs in Vases
For a fun and festive spring piece, add dollar store eggs to vases and place them around your home. You can place some faux moss at the bottom to create a nest-like look. Wrap twine around the base of your vases to give them a rustic feel.
Dollar Store Dice Bunnies
Make these adorable dice bunnies by painting some foam dice white; alternately, you can pull a white balloon over them, which is much quicker! You can then make ears from white and pink felt and attach them to the top with hot glue. Use items like buttons and gems to make features such as eyes and noses.
