Best Outdoor Easter Decoration Ideas

Here’s what you can try out:

1. Plastic Eggs – Easter Egg Decorations

Plastic Eggs - Easter Egg Decorations

Plastic eggs are one of the most versatile decor items you can have on hand. Here are a few ideas when it comes to Easter egg decorations:

  • Fill the eggs with jellybeans and leave some in the grass – make sure they’re easy to spot so kids don’t step on them.
  • Stick a small stuffed animal inside each egg and place them all over the yard.
  • Scatter some plastic eggs around a big inflatable bunny or chick.
  • Easily make a fun Easter Egg tree by inserting twigs into the top of a styrofoam cone and attaching plastic eggs to the tips – it will look like an adorable pinecone tree.
  • You can also use plastic eggs for DIY luminaries. Just put a tealight inside each egg, line them up on your porch or walkway and switch them on once it gets dark out.
  • Spray-paint the plastic eggs in bright colors like pink, yellow or blue.
  • You can even get creative with other craft supplies, like gluing googly eyes onto white plastic eggs and drawing polka dots on orange ones. Have fun with it and make this a group activity by inviting other families over to decorate their own eggs.

2. Small Decorated Baskets – Easter Table Decor

Small Decorated Baskets - Easter Table Decor

Small, decorated baskets are an adorable addition to any Easter display and also work as Easter table decor. Here are a few ideas you can try:

  • Cut fake tulips and stick the stems into the basket for a quick spring look.
  • Fill colorful paper eggs with treats like jellybeans or caramels. You can even tuck in some chocolate bunnies for your kids to find.
  • Tie yarn around the handle of the basket to make it look like a big Easter bow.
  • Cover the basket with felt strawberries, flowers, or leaves using fabric glue – this is also easy to do with kids since they can choose their favorite materials and stick everything together.
  • You can make a cute little Easter egg tree by cutting a styrofoam cone in half horizontally, gluing on felt flowers, and sticking many tiny baskets inside with plastic eggs – this may require two people.

3. Painted Rocks – Outside Easter Decorations

Painted Rocks - Outside Easter Decorations

Decorating with outdoor art is easy, affordable, and gives everyone more of an incentive to get outside. Here are a few ideas for Easter outside decorations:

  • Use outdoor paints to decorate big rocks, wooden signs, or even old paper plates. Kids can draw simple patterns like polka dots or hearts, or get really creative and paint their name in cursive letters.
  • Make simple silhouette cutouts of bunnies or chickens using black foam sheets – kids can trace shapes for this one. If you want fancier, try creating white cutouts that you can fill with chalk paint and then write Easter messages on.
  • You can also hang yarn between two sturdy trees to make a banner that says Happy Easter. Cut out bunny ears from craft foam sheets and glue them onto the top of each letter for decoration.

4. Spring Wreath – Easter Door Decorations

Spring Wreath - Easter Door Decorations

Spring wreaths are a classic Easter decoration that can go anywhere in your yard, starting with your front door. Here are a few ideas for Easter door decorations:

  • Drape spring wreaths over the front door for an inviting, cheerful welcome when guests arrive. You can even make your own by following the simple instructions provided by Life, Family and Fun.
  • Cut out flowers from felt and hot glue polka dots onto petals for an easy way to dress up your Easter wreaths. You can also tie fabric bows onto the wreath for a pop of festive color, as well as cutout bunny or chicken shapes from green felt, then hot glue pieces of wire mesh over the top.
  • String some twine along the roof of your porch to create a banner with spring-themed words like Happy and Easter. These are especially cute if you have kids who are learning their letters or how to spell. Just cut out corresponding shapes from foam sheets, glue them onto pieces of felt, and hang them up using clear thread.

5. Felt Bunny Bunting – Easter Decor Bunny

Felt Bunny Bunting - Easter Decor Bunny

Felt bunny bunting is easy to make and will instantly bring fun, festive vibes to your yard. Here’s what you need to do for this Easter bunny decor idea.


  1. Cut six squares of felt the same size (12 x 12 inches).
  2. On each square, cut out a triangle with curved edges. The widest part of the triangle should be 3 1/2-inch wide and the narrowest part should be 1 inch. Make two slits on either side of this shape – about 3/4-inch long.
  3. Place one square face up on your work surface. String some ribbon or jute through the top slit so it hangs down vertically. Fold the top point down over it so it stays in place. Repeat on all felt squares – make sure each one is facing a different direction.
  4. Once all the squares have been strung together, tie them tightly with twine to keep them in shape – just knot it once and then cut off any excess.
  5. Poke holes near the top of each bunting piece and thread some pipe cleaners through as well as a few felt bunny figurines. Leave enough room at the top for hanging from a doorknob or branch.

6. Egg Wreath – Decorative Easter Ideas

Egg Wreath - Decorative Easter Ideas

A festive wreath is a great DIY Easter decorating idea and a beautiful way to welcome guests to your home and add some holiday cheer.


  1. Gather natural green materials like pine cones, sprigs of rosemary, lavender, or olive branches. You could also use fake greenery if you prefer since the styrofoam ring will cover it up anyway.
  2. Take an old wire coat hanger and bend it into a circle, then staple it shut with a stapler; hang it on the wall and fill it with your greenery.
  3. Attach the ring to a styrofoam wreath using hot glue or pins. Add some little plastic eggs if you feel like it.

7. Milk Bottle Lanterns – DIY Decorations for Easter

Milk Bottle Lanterns - DIY Decorations for Easter

Milk bottles are cute DIY Easter decorations for hanging lanterns to light up your yard in a pinch.


  • Remove the labels from glass milk bottles and wash them thoroughly to remove any lingering odors or soap residue.
  • Cut off the bottom third of each bottle with a sharp craft knife or scissors so that they will sit evenly on their bases.
  • Glue small LED lights inside the bottles using hot glue – try decorating tulle, feathers, flowers, and even Easter grass around the bottles.
  • Stack the bottles and use a thick rubber band to secure them – if you want, you can also glue around the edges for extra support.
  • Thread jute or ribbon through the top to create a handle so that you can hang your lanterns.

  1. Start with a large paper plate and cut out concentric circles around the center; fold them in half and snip a little off of the back so they stand up nicely.
  2. Glue decorative straws onto the bottom part of each egg to stick them to your tree. Trim any excess straw if needed.
  3. After decorating all paper plates, fill them with candy and pop them into plastic eggs for storage. You can even decorate your plastic eggs by painting designs or adding sticky notes – just be creative.
  4. Finally, pop the filled eggs into the paper plates, and you’re all set.

10. Bunny Signs – Farmhouse Easter Decor

Bunny Signs - Farmhouse Easter Decor

Pastel colors are iconic for spring holidays like Easter, so you can paint signs and plaques to go along with them.


  • Wooden boards cut into the appropriate shapes
  • Sandpaper
  • Paintbrushes
  • Acrylic paints in the pastel colors of your choice
  • Various decorative items or Easter signs


  1. Start by sanding the wooden boards until they are smooth – this will help the paint stick to the surface better.

  • Wire coathangers cut into bunny shapes
  • Chicken wire folded in half
  • Duct tape


  1. Start by laying down a base of chicken wire so that it is at least 3 feet tall and one foot wide – use a staple gun or tack each piece of wire into place with needle-nose pliers if they’re not staying upright on their own.
  2. Lay down the first wire bunny on top of the chicken wire. Then, cut off small pieces of duct tape and place them over the coathanger wire to anchor these bunnies in place.
  3. Continue using smaller wire bunnies to create a border around this larger one – you can double up the coathangers if needed so that they stand up better.
  4. Use your creativity to decorate these fence bunnies however you’d like. For example, you can paint designs on them or even hang flowers from their necks; just be sure that they’ll stay upright.

  1. Start by folding the doilies in half and cutting out fringes from the top part where they’re folded – this keeps them nice and crisp.
  2. After doing that for all doilies, form a ring with one large doily at the center by overlapping its ends together; use either green floral wire or hot glue to keep it in place. Then, attach smaller doilies around this one to create a layered look.
  3. To finish it off, glue or tape the ends of each doily to the wreath ring in a circular shape. You can vary the colors and patterns in any way you like, and add in extra elements like flowers or beads for decoration if desired.

  3. To make the border around this piece of scrapbook paper more prominent, cut off about an inch from all sides.

17. Multicolored Plaid Hanging Egg – Decorating Ideas for Easter Eggs

Multicolored Plaid Hanging Egg - Decorating Ideas for Easter Eggs

We all know that eggs are a symbol of new life and rebirth, but they’re also pretty boring to look at. It’s time for your Easter egg decoration skill to step up its game by going with the plaid trend this year.


  • Painter’s tape
  • Paint (white, light blue, red, yellow)
  • Easel or tabletop


  1. Start by painting one side of the easel or table surface in white or light blue.
  2. Let it dry before proceeding to the next steps.
  3. Use painter’s tape to create stripes on the dried-off surface.
  4. Next, apply two layers of tape over the white section until you achieve a plaid look.
  5. Now it’s time to paint. Use your red and yellow paint (or any other colors) to turn your easel or table surface into an Easter basket full of eggs.
  6. Remember that the bottom layer should still be white or light blue, so don’t cover everything with one color.
  7. If you’re satisfied with the results, let it dry overnight before removing the painter’s tape.

18. Easter Egg Topiary Tree – Easter Tree Decorations

Easter Egg Topiary Tree - Easter Tree Decorations

If you’re feeling a bit intimidated by the idea of working with real plants, this Easter egg topiary tree is a great way to get around that.


  • Styrofoam cone
  • An assortment of plastic or silk flowers in pastel shades
  • Weedwhacker wire
  • Pieces of floral foam
  • Hot glue gun


  1. Start by carving out the center of the styrofoam cone with a craft knife to make room for all of your decorative elements. Think Easter basket – it should be wide enough to fit several Easter eggs.
  2. Next, wire together pieces of floral foam to create additional greenery for your tree. Use your hot glue gun to attach them around the base of the styrofoam cone so that they don’t fall out or get pushed over easily.
  3. Now you can start embellishing by inserting flowers into the holes previously created with the craft knife.

19. Wire Basket Easter Bonnet – Easter Yard Decorations

Wire Basket Easter Bonnet - Easter Yard Decorations

Creating a wire basket Easter bonnet is a great project for DIY beginners since it uses basic wire techniques and requires minimal supplies. Plus, it’s sure to be a crowd favorite at any festive celebration.


  • Pliers
  • White ribbon (the width should be about twice as wide as your pliers)
  • A wreath form or something circular that you can attach the ribbon around
  • Thin gauge floral wire
  • Scissors
  • Headband clips


  1. Start by cutting two thin pieces of floral wire – one piece should be long enough to fit around the circumference of your wreath form, while the second one needs to be half that length.
  2. Take the long piece of wire and twist it into a spiral before affixing the second wire to the bottom.
  3. Next, take your pliers and bend a small V shape at one end of each wire using the plier’s nose or another similar technique. To make sure that you get a nice, even curve for both sides, use one side as a guide for the other.
  4. Make sure you know where your Easter bonnet will be positioned on your head – this is important since it should be high enough not to block your vision. Use that point as a reference when shaping new curves with your pliers from there down.
  5. Don’t forget to leave some wiggle room if you’re planning to insert flowers or other decorations.

20. Crossing Sign – Easter Bunny Decor

Crossing Sign - Easter Bunny Decor

Did you know that a simple wooden crosswalk sign turned upside down can make a great Easter bunny crossing sign?


  • Wooden post made from fence pickets
  • White latex paint
  • Blue acrylic paint


  1. Start by painting the top portion of your post with white latex paint and letting it dry for at least an hour.
  2. Next, mix equal parts of blue acrylic paint and water in a small container – this works best if you use gel or paste acrylics since they don’t run all over the place.
  3. Paint the lower part of your crosswalk sign using this mixture to give it a realistic wood grain look before letting it dry overnight.

If you want to add some Easter flair to your homemade bunny crossing sign, try coming up with a clever message to go on it instead of using the typical Bunny Crossing text.

21. Easter Bunny Planter – DIY Easter Decorating Ideas

Easter Bunny Planter - DIY Easter Decorating Ideas

Repurposing a planter into an Easter bunny is a really fun and unique way to make a one-of-a-kind decoration for your home – especially since it’s easy to do.


  • Styrofoam egg
  • White spray paint, pink foam paint or fabric dye
  • White acrylic paint
  • 3 small pom-poms in various sizes (smaller ones for the ears and a larger one for the nose)
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Pencil
  • Rubber gloves
  • Pliers
  • Screwdriver with a flat head


  1. Flip over your styrofoam egg so that it has a flat surface. Use the rubber gloves since doing this will leave tiny styrofoam bits on your hands.
  2. Next, take your pliers and remove all flaps from the top of the styrofoam egg using the flat head screwdriver to wedge it in place; make sure to entirely remove these to obtain a smooth surface.
  3. Now comes the fun part: mix equal parts of hot glue and water in a small bowl before stirring in white acrylic paint until you get an opaque color; you’ll want this mixture to be white instead of clear since it will show through your foam pom-poms later.
  4. Use the paintbrush to coat the entire surface of your styrofoam egg with this mixture before letting it dry overnight.
  5. Once it’s completely dried, flip your styrofoam egg back over and use the pliers to reshape any flaps or spikes that might be sticking out. Another good idea is to use sandpaper at this point to smooth everything down.
  6. Next, take your pencil and draw an oval shape for your bunny head on top of the planter. Add in two smaller ovals for ears just below that one – these should be attached by a shorter line than the body.
  7. Add just a touch more detail to your Easter bunny planter by drawing a little nose and mouth on the front – you can even add a cute tail if you want.
  8. Once all lines are in place, carefully use sharp scissors to cut away everything that you drew so that only the bunny shapes remain.
  9. Take your white foam paint or fabric dye and apply two coats to the entire egg, making sure to cover any spots that might be too dark.
  10. Cut out ovals of pink foam paint with pom-pom centers from adhesive felt before sticking them to the styrofoam egg wherever you’d like.
  11. Use hot glue to attach the bunny ears and nose in addition to pom-poms for the cheeks – these should be lightly squeezed onto the styrofoam with your fingers before adding a dot of hot glue; you can also stick on additional smaller dots for an even cuter look.
  12. Last but not least, stick on four black sequin eyes using white glue or double-sided sticky tape.
  13. Once this is done, let everything dry overnight so that it’s ready for display come Easter morning.

22. Burlap Easter Bunny – Decorate Mantel for Easter

Burlap Easter Bunny - Decorate Mantel for Easter

Designing a burlap bunny is a perfect Easter mantel decorating ideaif you’re looking to add a rustic touch to your lawn this season.


  • Heavy burlap fabric in natural tan, green, brown, and black
  • Small wooden dowels in various sizes (try using toothpicks if you don’t have anything else)
  • A white fabric paint pen
  • Wood glue
  • Popsicle sticks or old pencils for ears


  1. Start by cutting long strips of 1-inch wide burlap to resemble ribbons; the length will vary but try to make them somewhere between 1/2 to 3/4 inches.
  2. Next, cut out bunny ears in assorted sizes; these can either be freehanded or traced from a template, depending on your preference.
  3. Glue the bunny ears to the popsicle sticks or wooden dowels.
  4. Take your paint pen and draw two large dots for the eyes and a smaller one for the nose. Then use wood glue to attach them to the bunny ear; this way, they won’t get knocked off by accident.
  5. Once everything dries, use lighter fluid to thoroughly wipe down the burlap strips to remove excess fibers – this will keep it from looking too fuzzy come Easter morning.
  6. Now comes the fun part: start tying the burlap strips onto each side of the bouncy ball in a zigzag pattern, skipping one string on either end of the ball to create an uneven look.
  7. If you desire, leave some of the strings longer than others so that they can hang down. Or you can tie them all together at different lengths for a fun variation of this design.
  8. Last but not least, cut two long ovals out of green felt and stick them to the wire wreath forms using double-sided adhesive tape – these are meant to serve as grass skirts, which you’ll want to stack on top of your bouncy ball toy.
  9. Once everything dries, give it a shake and enjoy watching your unique bunny bounce around during Easter playtime.

23. Wreath – Easter Cross Decorations

Wreath - Easter Cross Decorations

Making an Easter cross wreath is a great way to celebrate the Christian roots of this holiday.


  • Artificial flowers in assorted colors
  • Wire or floral wreath form
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Twine
  • Strong adhesive


  1. Begin by cutting the artificial flowers off of their stems.
  2. Next, you have to glue the flowers to the wire or floral wreath form. You’ll want to use a good amount of hot glue for this job. Plus, you might find it easier to start with the larger flowers in the center and then work your way outwards with the smaller flowers.
  3. After attaching all flowers, take some twine and tie it securely around the middle of the Easter cross wreath. This will serve as a hanger, so go ahead and knot it several times.
  4. At this point, you might want to add embellishments such as ribbons, pearls, glitter, or all.
  5. The final step is applying the strong adhesive around the wire form of your Easter cross wreath and letting it dry overnight before hanging it up.

Garland - Easter Decor Mantel

An Easter egg garland is a super simple and inexpensive craft that you and your kids will love. And it’s an excellent Easter mantel decor idea.


  • Plastic eggs of various sizes
  • Yellow or white pearl cotton thread
  • Pom-poms
  • Scissors


  1. Start by knotting the end of your thread before stringing the first plastic egg; doing this will ensure that your thread won’t fall out.
  2. Then, string the eggs onto the thread in a horizontal line before tying another knot at the end of it.
  3. Continue adding more plastic eggs until you reach the desired length.
  4. Lastly, you can attach pom-poms or little crosses made out of pearl cotton thread with these knots. Or you can leave them plain if you prefer.

  • 18-inch wire form wreath
  • Floral wire for hanging
  • Round stickers in assorted colors and sizes (you can spray paint cardboard circles or cut out paper shapes to use)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors


  1. Begin by painting your cardboard circles in bright spring colors such as yellow, green, and pink.
  2. Once they’re fully dry, stick the circles to the surface of the wire form.
  3. Now comes the fun part: stringing on your round stickers. You can arrange them however you like. Just try to avoid covering up too many painted cardboard buttons; it’s what will give your sticker note wreath its distinct look.

26. Marbled – Ideas for Easter Egg Decorating

Marbled - Ideas for Easter Egg Decorating

A fun and creative way to decorate Easter eggs this year is to try your hand at making marbled ones. It’s an innovative way for kids to fill their treat baskets the next time they go hunting for Easter eggs.


  • Uncooked eggs
  • Food coloring (liquid or gel) in assorted colors
  • White distilled vinegar


  1. Begin by placing a paper towel under the carton of eggs you’re using so that it will catch any drips.
  2. Next, pour enough water from each carton of eggshells to make room for all of your food coloring mixtures.
  3. Add different colors of food coloring into each carton, making sure not to stir them right away.
  4. Instead, use a toothpick to lift the dye off the surface of the water and transfer it to another section. Doing this will allow you to create marbled and swirled patterns on the surface of your dyed eggshells; if done correctly, these patterns will end up looking like abstract artworks.
  5. Once you’re happy with the look of your marbled eggs, transfer them into a large bowl filled with white distilled vinegar. Do not use regular white vinegar here since it’s not as acidic.
  6. After 5 minutes or so, remove the dyed shells from the vinegar bath and let them dry overnight before putting them back in the carton for storage.
