Now that spring is finally creeping towards our doorstep, our family has gone into full on Easter mode, even though we know we’re totally early. There’s just something so cheerful about the fresh springtime holiday that we totally can’t resist! We’ve already got so many adorable DIY Easter decorations hanging around inside our house, however, that now we’re started toying with the idea of decorating our porch and yard as well, just to add a little extra cheer to our bright little street.
Just in case you’re as into the idea of making some cute DIY outdoor Easter decor as we are, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas and tutorials we’ve come across so far in our search for guidance and inspiration!
1. Yarn egg garland
This particular idea from Mod Podge Rocks is technically one that you could very easily feature inside as well, but because the yarn you’ll use is sealed in glue, it’ll withstand the elements outside, even though it rains so much in the spring! Check out their tutorial to learn how they created these fantastic hanging eggs using wet yarn wrapping techniques that are a whole lot of fun.
2. Wooden carrot garden
Are you the kind of DIY enthusiast who adores working with harder materials in a way that’s a little more hands-on? Well, if you have a garden spot that you’re not currently using for spring blossoms, then why not use it to make a wooden Easter display instead? We’re totally in love with these idea from Instructables for creating a wooden carrot plot for passing Easter bunnies.
3. Giant Peeps topiary
In our house, Peeps are totally polarizing! Half the family thinks they’re the yummiest treat ever and regards them as one of the best parts about Easter while the other half can’t stand the taste and texture, even though they’re so pastel and cute. If you’re a huge fan, we have a feeling you’ll appreciate the way Craft-o-Maniac made this fantastic outdoor Peeps themed topiary for their porch!
4. Easter carrots door decoration
If you ask us, one of the best ways to display your DIY skills and love for festive things outside of your home is to make front door decor. That way, people are greeted with something cheerful, crafty, and seasonal from the moment they arrive to visit your home! Even passersby on the street will be able to enjoy what you’ve made. This lovely Easter door carrots featured on Paint Yourself a Smile are the perfect example of what we mean.
