3 Fun and Simple DIY Easter Crafts: Eggs, Baskets, and Wreaths
Spring is a great time to craft little creations to add color to the home. These DIY projects are a festive way to celebrate the season. These crafts are made with inexpensive supplies and are relatively easy to put together. Read on and craft your way into spring with these three easy projects:
- Painted Confetti Eggs
- Miniature Easter Basket
- Easter Wreath
1. Painted Confetti Eggs
This is a fun and traditional craft for Easter.
- Mod Podge
- Follow along with these simple, step-by-step instructions to craft the perfect painted confetti eggs!
- Punch a small hole at the top of the egg.
- Empty the yolk out and rinse.
- Let the egg dry.
- Slip a treat of your choice into the egg. You can fill the egg with anything, from confetti to candy to money.
- Glue a round piece of paper or cardstock over the egg's hole. Fraying the edges of the circular piece of paper/cardstock will make it easier to glue on.
- Paint the entire egg with mod podge and let it dry.
- Paint the dried egg with any color, pattern, or design you wish, and let it dry. You're all done!
2. Miniature Easter Basket
This little Easter basket is perfect to place little sweets and trinkets in.
You will need:
- Popsicle sticks
- Wood glue or hot glue
- Glue four popsicle sticks together, attaching them at the ends to create a square. That will be the bottom of the basket.
- Cut a lot of popsicle sticks in half.
- Glue popsicle-stick halves along the bottom to form the walls of the basket.
- Tie string to both sides of the basket.
- Place your Easter trinkets inside, or fill it with candy to give as a gift. You're all done!
3. Easter Wreath
This is a charming mini wreath for the spring season.
You will need:
- Wooden wreath
- See-through ribbon
- Hollow eggs
- Hot glue
- Gather up three of your painted confetti eggs, or create some using the instructions above!
- Paint your wooden wreath any color of your choice. I prefer subtler colors since the eggs are usually very bright and vibrant.
- Glue three eggs to the wreath.
- Wrap and tie ribbon around the wreath and eggs. You're all done!
