The weather has gotten warmer. Flowers are starting to bloom. Spring is here. Can you feel it?
One of the ‘official’ markers of spring for many is Easter. Since it generally falls anywhere from late March to mid-April on the calendar, it’s one of the first holidays to welcome people into the season.
Many people celebrate Easter with their friends and family, and for many, it could be the first chance they’ve been able to see their families since Christmas or Thanksgiving. So, that means it’s also a cause for celebration. And with celebration comes…crafts!
That’s what we’re going to talk about in this post, easy Easter craft ideas you can use to make your party pop. Use these ideas to dress up your table or give the kids something fun to do before the big day.
Let’s take a look.
Rustic Easter Eggs
Have a handful of extra plastic Easter eggs laying around? Rather than pitching them, use them as a way to make a shabby chic table centerpiece. All you need are your plastic eggs, twine, a few scraps of ribbon, and your trusty glue gun.
Wrap the twine around the eggs, sealing with the glue gun, and then use your ribbon scraps to add extra decoration. You’ve got an easy to make centerpiece ready to go!

Felt Egg Pouches
If you have a lot of kiddos coming for your Easter event, you don’t want to have the Easter bunny forget about them! So, make each kid their very own felt egg pouch that you can fill with some Easter candy. You need a number of felt squares (at least six by six inches), scissors, and either your glue gun or a sturdy needle and string.
Cut two egg shapes out of the felt, then take one of the egg shapes and cut in half again. Line up the half and the full egg and either glue or sew the edges together leaving the top open. Then insert lollipops or candy into the pouch.

Easter Egg Garland
If you love using garland all over your house for Christmas, you’re going to love this springtime version! Here’s what you need: Easter eggs (these can be plastic, glitter, pre-made, etc), ribbon (to make small bows), mini clothespins, twine, and a glue gun.
First, get your twine length set so you can attach your eggs to it properly. You can use burlap style twine or various colors of butchers twine. Then create a bunch of mini bows and glue them to the top of each egg. Once dried, take the mini clothespins and attach them to the bows on the clothes line. Like mini laundry, but much more fun.
