DIY Easter Decorations To Brighten Up Your Home

Easter is just around the corner, so I’m sure you’re looking for some amazing DIY Easter decorations. Luckily, I’ve found some incredible projects that will help you make your home so festive and colorful! 

Here are some ideas to get you started:

Easter Decoration Takeaways
– Incorporate traditional Easter symbols like eggs, bunnies, and flowers into your décor.
– Use pastel colors like pink, blue, and yellow to create a spring-like atmosphere.
– DIY projects like paper crafts or creating your own jewelry can add a personalized touch.
– You can create festive centerpieces or wreaths using a variety of materials.
– Decorating your home for Easter can be done on a budget by repurposing items or making your own decorations.

Easter Eggs Table Vase

Put some Easter eggs in a glass vase, then fill the rest of it with flowers and greenery. Add some fake or real grass if you have any—it looks nice, but can also be messy. Then add a bow for extra flair!

Easter Wreath

To make this wreath, you’ll need a styrofoam wreath and some eggs. It’s best to use pastel colored eggs or even eggshells because they will be easier to paint than the hard-boiled ones.

To make your Easter Wreath, glue the eggs onto the wreath using a hot glue gun. You can either do this with one color or mix them up! If you prefer more color, add some bunnies as well!

Cross Door Hanger

If you’re looking for a simple way to spread Easter cheer, look no further than our Cross Door Hanger! With just a little bit of time and effort, this project will make your front door stand out from the rest.

You’ll need:

  • A cross template (we used an old piece of cardboard)
  • Paint (we used acrylic)
  • Paintbrush or sponge brush (if needed)

Step 1: Trace the cross template onto your wood surface and lightly sand off any rough edges so that it’s smooth enough to paint on. 

You can also paint directly over the cardboard and then cut out the shape afterwards if you’d like that look instead. 

We chose not to do this because we wanted our hanger to be very sturdy and didn’t want any chance of it breaking apart after hanging up anything heavy on it or removing something like lights during Christmas time in December!

Hanger TypeMaterials NeededDifficulty Level
Wooden Cross HangerWooden cross, acrylic paint, paintbrushes, ribbon or wire, hot glue gunEasy
Grapevine Wreath Cross HangerGrapevine wreath, floral wire, wire cutters, ribbon or wire, greenery, flowersModerate
Upside Down Terra Cotta Pot Cross HangerTerra cotta pot, spray paint, pot hanger hook, ribbon, flowers or greenery, glue gunDifficult

This table compares three different cross door hanger ideas, detailing the type of hanger and required materials for each project, as well as the level of difficulty. The wooden cross hanger is easy to make and can be customized with paint and ribbon, while the grapevine wreath cross hanger involves using a grapevine wreath as the base and adding greenery and flowers.

The upside-down terra cotta pot cross hanger is more challenging, requiring the pot to be spray painted and fitted with a hanger hook, as well as the addition of flowers or greenery with hot glue.

Pallet Wood Bunny Sign


  • A pallet wood board
  • Paint, greenery (greens, flowers), and a wooden bunny
  • Decorations to hang from the sign


Paint the wood whatever color you like and let it dry. I actually just used some leftover paint from my porch swing project! After it dries, paint a design on your sign. You can do simple stripes or even use stencils for more intricate designs. 

If you want to add some extra flair, try using colored pencils or markers for even more dimension in your design before painting over it with spray paint or acrylics. 

I would recommend doing one coat of spray paint first then two coats of acrylics so that you can see what colors work best together when blended into each other without adding too much pressure onto any one area where too much may cause cracking/peeling later on down the road as it ages due to moisture exposure at certain points during its lifespan being exposed outdoors year round in an outdoor environment (like mine).

Chick Hanging Basket

This DIY Easter decoration is super easy to make, and you probably already have the supplies! You’ll need a basket or vase, some straws and paper (or fabric).

Cut out pieces of paper or fabric in the shape of chicks. If you’re using paper, use double-sided tape to attach them to the straws. 

If you’re using fabric, sew a string around each chick so that it can be hung on a nail or hook. Add more details if desired (such as eyes and beaks), then hang your assembly inside your home for an adorable Easter decorating idea!

Wall Hanging Flower Pot

You can use a pot or basket to create your wall hanging flower pot. If you want to hang the planter on a wall, make sure it’s sturdy and can hold the weight of soil and plants. 

The best option is to find an old trunk, suitcase, toolbox or piece of furniture that’s been collecting dust in your basement or garage. 

If you’re not so lucky to have one lying around waiting for you to transform it into something new and let’s be serious: who has time for that? you could always go out and buy something new. 

But if you must purchase something specifically for this project (or simply can’t find anything old enough), look for a large clay pot with holes in the bottom so water will drain through easily when watering the plant inside it.

Bunnies In A Planter

Your choice of container will depend on your style and budget. A terracotta pot, for example, is inexpensive and can be used year-round. 

For a more modern look with a similar price tag, you could opt for a ceramic planter or metal vase. If you’re looking to go all out, there are many options available that range from glass containers to wooden boxes.

For those who want to focus on their décor while leaving their plants behind (or just running low on space), we recommend hanging your Easter decorations from the ceiling instead of placing them on tables or mantels it’s easy enough to do using ribbon, twine or string lights!

Crafting doesn’t have to break the bank! Our article on Paper Crafts on a Budget shares tips and ideas for affordable projects that are fun for the whole family.

Floral Cross Wreath

You will need the following materials:

Flowers. Get them from the garden, or cut off some dead heads from your houseplants if you don’t have any blooming plants outside. If you choose flowers that will last longer than one season (e.g., tulips), use floral wire to attach them to the wreath instead of ribbon.

Ribbon to hang it up with—thick enough that it won’t break easily when handled but thin enough not to get in the way of seeing all those lovely petals!

A cross or other religious symbol, if desired; I used a miniature wooden cross made out of twine and acrylic paint (but any kind will do).

Wreath TypeMaterials NeededDifficulty Level
Grapevine Floral CrossGrapevine cross, floral wire, wire cutters, greenery, flowersEasy
Foam Floral CrossFoam cross, floral wire, wire cutters, artificial flowersModerate
Willow Wreath Floral CrossWillow wreath, floral wire, wire cutters, greenery, flowersDifficult

This table compares three different floral cross wreath ideas, detailing the type of wreath and required materials for each project, as well as the level of difficulty.

The grapevine floral cross is easy to make and can be decorated with real or artificial flowers. The foam floral cross is a bit more challenging but still manageable for most crafters, using wire and artificial flowers.

The willow wreath floral cross is the most difficult option, but yields a stunning result, using a willow wreath as the base and adding fresh or artificial flowers and leaves.

Wooden Easter Sign

Materials: wooden Easter sign, pencil, ruler, sandpaper, paintbrush and decorative paint.

1. With the help of a pencil and a ruler draw four lines on your wood piece. At each end of the longer line draw two smaller lines in order to create a rectangle shape as shown in picture one below.

Sand down all four sides with sandpaper until they are smooth enough for you to paint on them without getting splinters or bumps on it first

Easter Eggs With Tulips Centerpiece

For the centerpiece, tulips are a popular Easter flower. Tulips can be used in a vase with Easter eggs for an eye-catching display. 

Use white or yellow tulips for a traditional look, or choose other colors to stand out from the usual reds and pinks.

  • Use glass vases if you want your centerpiece to be large enough to fill up a lot of space on your table or mantelpiece. A large glass vase will allow you to include more flowers and make it easy to see all of them at once.
  • Choose smaller glass vases if you prefer something more compact—you can still use plenty of flowers and still have enough room left over for some candy-filled eggs!

Paper Flowers Centerpiece

Materials needed:

  • Scissors
  • Paper (any color or pattern is fine)
  • A glue stick, like this one from Elmer’s.

How to make it:

Cut out a flower shape from your paper of choice. This can be any size, but I recommend something close to the size of your serving dish or vase so that the flowers don’t end up looking too small on the table.

Fold the flower in half along its crease line (the fold will be visible when you unfold it).

Unfold it and lay it flat again so that all four corners meet at points where they’ll be connected by a petal or leaf later on (you’ll see what I mean).

Attach each corner with a bit of glue — I recommend using an adhesive specifically designed for paper crafts, like Elmer’s Glue-All Tacky Glue Stick shown above — then wait until each petal or leaf has dried before moving onto step 5! 

Note: If you’re making larger flowers than what I have here in my example photo above (which measures roughly 4 inches across), use two pieces instead of one; otherwise your finished product may come out lopsided due to being underweighted by only one side!

Flower TypeMaterials NeededDifficulty Level
Crepe Paper FlowersCrepe paper, floral wire, floral tapeEasy
Tissue Paper FlowersTissue paper, floral wire, scissorsEasy
Origami FlowersOrigami paper, floral wire, scissorsModerate
Silhouette Flower JarsSilhouette cameo machine, mason jars, paint, floral foamDifficult

This table compares four different paper flower centerpiece ideas, detailing the type of flower and required materials for each project, as well as the level of difficulty. Crepe paper and tissue paper flowers are relatively easy and affordable to make, while origami flowers require a bit more skill.

Silhouette flower jars are more challenging, involving the use of a cutting machine and paint for the mason jars.

Yarn Wall Art


Cardstock or poster board, in your favorite color.

Yarn (or ribbon or burlap strips, etc.), in a variety of colors. You’ll need enough to cover the area you’re decorating with yarn. For example, if you are making an art piece for your living room wall and it’s 8’x10′, you will need at least 100 yards of yarn—more if it’s longer than that!

Scissors or an Xacto knife (if cutting out shapes)

How to make it:

Measure out how big you want your canvas and decide what shape/size of yarn pieces you’d like for this project. If using one type of material, try not to mix different types together—this keeps things looking cohesive and intentional rather than random and haphazard!
