Crafting is not always about saving money. Making something on your own provides an enormous sense of satisfaction that retail shopping simply can’t match. Plus, it’s a lot of fun! In our new “Treetopia Loves” series, we showcase fabulous decorating projects by some of our favorite bloggers to inspire and guide you into the wonderful world of DIY. These projects are beautiful, easy, and best of all, actually doable.
We kick off our series with a collection of delightfully decorated Easter eggs. Making these creative Easter eggs is simple and not nearly as messy as dyeing with water and food coloring. So, as the Easter Bunny may say: “Hop to it!”
Yarn-Wrapped Easter Egg Diorama
Speaking of the Easter Bunny, this particular cottontail seems to enjoy hiding inside Easter eggs rather than hiding them in the garden. Crafted by our very own Brand Ambassador, Jennifer Perkins, this adorable diorama features a baby blue pom-pom bunny snuggled happily inside a large, yarn-covered paper mache egg. Find out how to make this pastel-hued ornament by reading Jennifer’s step-by-step guide.
Washi Tape Easter Eggs
Washi tape is a favorite among crafters because it’s readily available, simple to use, and comes in many cute patterns and colors. Chelsea Foy of Lovely Indeed made these stylish Easter eggs by cutting washi tape in different shapes and applying the pieces to hard-boiled eggs. Make sure the eggs are dry and at room temperature so the tape adheres securely. You can view more photos by visiting this blog page.
Photo Print Easter Eggs
Your family and friends will laugh their heads off once they see these totally unique Easter eggs. Victoria Hudgins of A Subtle Revelry created these eggs by printing the images on a sheet of tissue paper taped onto normal inkjet paper. Perfect as dinner table place cards, these portrait-printed eggs also make heart-warming collectibles if made with white artificial eggs. See Victoria’s full instructions on this page.
Scrap Fabric Easter Eggs
Fabric-covered Easter eggs are pretty easy to make, and no one makes them prettier than Amanda Tuckerman of Macaroon Kids. With a few foam or plastic eggs, some Modge Podge, and strips of scrap cotton cloth, you can make attractive decorative eggs that you can display in your home long after Easter Sunday. See more photos of these colorful fabric eggs on Amanda’s page.
Sharpie Doodle Easter Eggs
Not a big fan of using scissors or glue for Easter eggs? Alisa Burke might just have the decorating idea that’s perfect for you. She drew the beautiful graphic designs on these plastic eggs with simple Sharpie markers and highlighters. Using plastic eggs is great because you can fill them with goodies, and you can mix and match the decorated halves to make your Easter eggs more funky and playful.
