Now that we’re finally on the verge of spring, we’re finding that all our attention is turning to Easter, for no other reason than that we adore it! There’s just something so cheerful and refreshing about the holiday that gets us feeling good; and the emphasis on cute baby animals and pastel colours doesn’t hurt either. Because we’re such crazy crafters, however, it only makes sense that we’ve already started collecting cute Easter themed DIY projects that will keep us busy between now and then!
Just in case you love the idea of making adorable Easter themed crafts and projects to ring your spring in, here are 15 of the nicest and most creative ideas we’ve come across in our search for inspiration!
1. Pastel confetti dipped Easter eggs
Never does a year go by that we don’t make sure to do the classic Easter egg decorating session with our kids, as is tradition! Just because it’s an old tradition, though, doesn’t mean you can’ put a fun new spin on the eggs you’re making each time. This year, we’re completely obsessed with the way Studio DIY painted their eggs in pastel colours and then confetti dipped one end.
2. Paper straw Easter wreath
Wreaths are the kind of awesome craft that you could make hundreds of all year long and never get bored. That’s because they can be themed, seasonal, and made in countless styles, shapes, and sizes!
