Spruce Up for Spring!
Spring is here, and that means Pinterest boards are being filled with all the pretty and pastel DIY’s. Just think about it? How many cute Easter bunnies have you pinned lately? Even if you haven’t been on Pinterest, nearly every store is bursting with bright colored flowers, decorative eggs, and wicker baskets.
Now many stores have adorable decorations, but at what cost?
Just last year Americans spent a record $18.4 billion on Easter, according to USA Today.
That number does include all Easter spending, such as buying your Easter Ham and all that candy to fill the eggs. But why should you be spending tons of money on Easter/Spring decorations when you could just as easily make them yourself?
Here are 4 cheap, fun, and easy crafts you can do this Easter to bring the joy of spring into your home.
Check out my DIY Page for a detailed list of instructions, supplies list, and tips and tricks on how to make these projects.
1. Burlap & Moss Bunny
The Easter Bunny is the mascot of this Spring holiday, so why not include him in your decor. Plus, bunnies are adorable! Try this shabby chic burlap and moss bunny. He will blend right into any old farm house style kitchen, or add some texture and greenery to any minimalist loft.
*Don’t contain yourself to only bunnies, try tracing out some other Easter designs like a Cross, a flower, or an egg.
2. Easter Egg Mason Jars
Another staple of the Easter atmosphere would have to be the eggs. You stuff them, hide them, and find them, and now you design your decor after them. With just some pastel paint you can transform a recycled Mason Jar into the cutest flower vase you’ve ever seen.
This project would be perfect for those of you with little ones. Instead of designing an egg you’ll most likely throw out, let your kids craft decorate these jars. Which they can then pick some beautiful flowers to fill them with and then can be used as a centerpiece for Easter dinner.
* These can also be filled with your favorite Easter candy. I prefer jelly beans.
3. Floral Tea Cup Centerpiece
Speaking of centerpieces check this out! Have you ever seen a levitating tea-cup spilling out greenery and flowers? Well, maybe in Alice in Wonderland.
Instead of waiting for the Mad-Hatter try making this magic for yourself.
This is one of the more unique ideas I’ve seen on Pinterest. Honestly, it was harder than I had planned, my greatest tip, use light tea-cups. However, it will definitely add a touch of creative flare to any Easter brunch buffet.
*Re-use these at Tea-Parties. Don’t forget to show off your hard work any chance you can.
4. Cement Easter Eggs
Three words – CEMENT. EASTER. EGGS. This DIY is a revelation. I thought we had run out of ideas for the yearly egg-stravaganza, but the Pinterest community never ceases to amaze me.
Not only is this a DIY that is using a whole new kind of medium, cement, but it is also super chic and totally trending.
If you want to make a stylish DIY that will aid in treating you Spring Fever as well as make an aesthetically pleasing Instagram post these eggs are for you.
*Add Beads to the ears of the bunnies to add a juxtaposition of mixed metals.

Jesus Christ loved you so deeply He died to pay for you and the world’s sins. Easter is more than bunnies and eggs.
For God so loved the world He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16
