10 Spring and Easter DIY Crafts

10 Spring and Easter DIY Crafts

Happy Friday Y’all! Time is not my friend right now. The kiddos are home because of this crazy world-wide dilemma and I hope you all are safe, healthy, and finding ways to spend your time in isolation. I purchased a few spring and Easter decorations a while back, but not nearly enough. I probably could order online, but I prefer shopping in stores just to get a feel of things. Today, I’m so thrilled to finally share my spring and Easter home decor diy crafts. Let’s get to it!

1.The Bunny

This is the easiest of them all. 

Materials:

  1. Old mini calendar holder from Magnolia Market. I purchased about a year or two ago, but I’m pretty sure they no longer carry that item anymore.
  2. Little bunny from dollar tree hanging decoration.
  3. Hot glue sticks and glue gun.
  4. Spray paint or paint.
  5. Paint tray and paint brush.

What to do?

To begin I removed the bunny from its decorative piece and sanded off the glitter. The downfall to using Dollar Tree items is the glitter. Everything doesn’t need to have glitter. Next, I went outdoors and sprayed paint the bunny with Rust-oleum Charcoal chalk. (I didn’t have black paint on deck.) Wait wait wait! Ding! It’s finished drying. I allowed it to dry about 1 hour before securing it to the wood frame with glue. See, it’s that easy!

2. The Welcome Board

Oh, Hi There Spring!

Materials:

  1. Wood board
  2. Pencil
  3. Paints, paint brush, and paint tray
  4. Paint pen (optional)
  5. Twine (optional)

What to do?

Choosing whatever paint color my heart desired, I mixed purple with white. Then, I painted the wood board. After drying, I drew out the quote, “Oh, Hi There Spring!” and the picture onto the board. Next, I painted the tulips and the peek-a-boo bunnies of 3. Afterwards, I traced the lettering with a paint pen. You could paint the letters, you just need to have more patience. Taking twine, I wrap it around the board, tie it, and that’s that!

3. Window bunnies

Aren’t these just the cutest!

Materials:

  1. 2 bunny cutouts
  2. 2 wooden window frame
  3. Paint, paint brush, and paint tray
  4. 2 eggs shapes
  5. Hot glue sticks and gun

What to do?

For starters, I purchased these window frames from Wal-Mart a few years ago. They should still have them in the craft section. The bunnies were purchased from Dollar Tree, along with eggs that were part of a decorative item for Easter. I removed the eggs from the decorative piece and painted them white. After each dried, I then dried brush brown onto the eggs. Next, I painted one bunny brown mixing in white. The other bunny was painted a barn red, while mixing in white. After each bunny finished drying, I glued the eggs to the bunny’s foot. Instead of hot gluing the bunny to the window frame I used Command strips, so that I could easily remove the bunny. And that’s the end!

4. The Buffalo Check Pillow

Buffalo check in spring!

Materials:

  1. Buffalo check fabric
  2. Scissor
  3. Pillow Filling
  4. Glue gun and sticks
  5. Egg template (optional)
  6. Fabric pencil (optional)

What to do?

I cut-out the fabric by using a decorative egg sign I purchased from Dollar as a template.  Fold the fabric in half so when you cut out the shape you have two egg shapes. Match up the sides and lay one on top of the other. Next, I lifted the edge of the top layer and applied glue to the bottom layer. Continue to do this until you reach the top leaving an opening to insert your filling. After the insertion, secure the opening with hot glue. There’s your buffalo check pillow.

5. Happy Easter Basket

My favorite! I ran out of florals, but I absolutely love it!

Materials:

  1. Basket
  2. Happy Easter Sign
  3. 4 Wood stems/blocks
  4. Floral
  5. Paints, paint brush, and tray
  6. Hot glue gun and sticks

What to do?

The Easter sign came from Dollar Tree which I painted white, and then dried brushed red barn onto it. I took 4 wood stems and stacked 2 gluing them together, making 2 stacks of 2 wood stems. ( I hope you understand, oh the wood stems also came from Dollar Tree.) Glue the wood stems to the basket which I obtained from Walmart. Next, glue the sign to the wood stem. (Note: For added support, take a popsicle stick and glue to the back of the sign and wood stem.) Add your florals and glue each into the basket. (Note: If you have styrofoam, I suggest using that to help hold in the florals.) Lastly, I added two florals to cover up the holes on top of the sign. (Note: If you have wood filler, this could work as well.) Now you have a beautiful basket!

6. The Garland

Materials:

  1. Egg shape items
  2. Sand paper
  3. Scissors
  4. Ruler
  5. Decorative balls
  6. Twine, yarn, or ribbon
  7. Paint, paintbrush, and tray
  8. Hot glue gun and sticks

What to do?

Separate the eggs and sand off the glitter. Choose your paint and paint the eggs. The eggs came from a decorative easter item sold at Dollar Tree. (Note: I painted all but one egg.) Measure and cut the twine to the length you desire. Knot one end and measure the placement of the first item. Add the decorative ball and then the egg. Just repeat the pattern until the garland is complete. Knot the other end and you’re done. Easy peasy!

7. Framed Art

Make your drawing skills handy!

Materials:

  1. Paper
  2. Pencil
  3. Eraser (if needed)
  4. Picture frame or twine

What to do?

Search online to get an idea on how you want your bunny to look. Honestly, if you’re not the best drawer you could print out some bunny drawings from online. Once I figure out how to distribute files online, I will be happy to make templates for you. Until then, the internet has many options. I drew out my bunnies on paper just by looking at the image from my phone. Of course I had a few mistakes here and there, but I just erased and fixed each mistake. When you have the print you love, frame it!

8. Chalkboard Sketch

Similar to the frame art with those good old-fashioned hand drawings!

Materials:

  1. Chalkboard
  2. Chalk or chalk pencil

What to do?

Like the frame art, I’ve searched for the print online that I loved, and then drew it onto the board. I think the prints turned out lovely. What about you?

9. Spring Chick Frame

Oh, for peep sakes!

Materials:

  1. Art canvas wood frame or picture frame
  2. Wooden chick cut-out
  3. Paint, paintbrush, and tray
  4. Hot glue gun and sticks
  5. Paint pen/pencil?

What to do?

I painted the chick cut-out that I got from Dollar Tree a yellow while mixing in white to get my desired color. Next, I used an old canvas frame and turnt it vertically. (You can use a picture frame that’s big enough to fit the chick.) I placed a dab of hot glue on the centered top backside of the frame, then attached the loop the is connected to the chick. Just add more glue to secure and support the weight of the chick. After the glue has set. Using a paint pen, I wrote “Peep” on the front center of the chick. Oh, how cute!

10. Spring Wreath

Spring is here!

Materials:

  1. Wreath
  2. 3 mixed florals 
  3. Hot glue gun and sticks
  4. Lace 
  5. Twine
  6. Piece of wood or foam board for a sign
  7. Paint, paintbrush, paint pen, and tray

What to do?

I used a leftover mini sign from an item from another project and painted it. While that was drying, I arranged the floral, and then glued them to the wreath. Next, I wrapped what little lace I had left around the wreath and glued that as well. Cut enough twine to make a loop to hang the wreath. Using a paint pen I wrote “hello spring,” onto the sign, and then glued it to the wreath for the finishing touch!
