Christmas, New Year and Valentine’s Day have come and gone. So what do you focus your energies on now? I suppose you could just relax or something…
But for the ambitious among us, there’s Easter to look forward to. More than any other special occasion, it’s a time we can get our craft on.
The following craft ideas promise stunning results for minimum fuss (or craft skills). Scroll to the bottom and you’ll also be able to download our amazing free printables – you know you want them!
This one is as easy as it looks AND makes use of those dodgy old toothbrushes. Simply dip the toothbrush into a pot of melted chocolate and ‘flick’ onto the coloured eggs.
EASTER BUNNY CRUDITE TRAY
What a fun way to encourage the little ones to eat their veggies! That is unless they wise up and eat the head first – thereby removing the bunny’s judgmental stare.

LEGO EASTER EGGS
This one involves gluing round mints on Easter eggs and then painting over them.
Not only is this a fun twist on the typical Easter eggs, these babies can be your instrument of revenge for all those Lego injuries you’ve sustained over the years. ‘Hide’ these in places where the kids are likely to step on them.
Southern Hemispherians – don’t throw away those Autumn twigs. Put them to good use by creating an elegant Easter Tree.
The following pic is purely aspirational. This is what I want my tree to look like. Tasteful minimalism.
But I fear with the kids’ input, it will look a little more.. busy.

Another one that’s as easy as it looks. Dots add a touch of class to just about anything.

BUNNY TOILET PAPER ROLL
No craft blog is complete without some use for toilet paper rolls.
If you can add on a ‘bottom’ (e.g., in the way of big bunny feet) then these cute bunnies can double as somewhere to hide/store Easter eggs.

EASTER DOOR WREATH
This one is a bit fiddly, so it might be better suited for older children and adults.

This is such a pretty way to present flowers and welcome in your Easter guests!
