DIY easy Easter Decorations
Easter is just around the corner and you have nothing to decorate your home with? You don’t want to spend a lot of money but you like a colorful and happy decor in your home? Check out my DIY Easy Easter Decorations which you can make within a couple of hours with or without the kids.
- Fresh Flower Arrangements:
The best, and I think also the prettiest, are freshly arranged flowers in a vase and decorated on your table. Add a colorful runner or table cloth and you are good to go.
Go for a walk and cut some blooming branches from the bushes you pass. Or get yourself some branches at the craft shop. Whatever is more convenient for you, but it creates a nice and colorful atmosphere.
This is what I collected this morning on my walk with my dog:
Hang easter eggs on the branches or add the self made bunnies (see below).
You don’t need a lot of decoration items to make your home look happy and colorful.
How to make DIY Easy Easter Decorations – Easter Bunnies
Why are there actually easter bunnies bringing eggs on easter? This is what I found on Wikipedia to solve the question:
“The story of the Easter Bunny is thought to have become common in the 19th Century. Rabbits usually give birth to a big litter of babies (called kittens), so they became a symbol of new life. Legend has it that the Easter bunny lays, decorates and hides eggs as they are also a symbol of new life.”
Wanna make some decorations using my templates?
It is super easy and also fun to make with the kids.
Use my bunny templates, trace and cut them out on card board, so you can use them as often as you want to.
Check your scrapbook paper, your collected gift wrap paper or any pretty paper you have and fits to your interior colors.
- Use the template,
- trace it on the paper you have selected.
- Cut as many bunnies as you need for making the mobile and the floral ring.
You can also make Garlands, coasters, or table mats with the bunny templates. Use your fantasy or let the kids decide.
Adjust the templates for your own decor
If the template is too small and you want the easter bunnies to be bigger, just copy the template in a bigger scale.

How to make Easter Mobiles
Use the templates and cut out the bunnies on scrap paper or gift wrap or any pretty paper you have.
I used skewers to make the bunny mobile and a floral ring for hanging the easter eggs.
It isn’t hard to make and doesn’t take long – but it looks stunning.
What you need:
- 2 skewers
- glue (hot glue or clear glue)
- minimum of 6 bunnies cut out on scrap paper
- cotton balls.
Lay the 2 skewers perpendicular to each other, then attach the skewers using thread criss-crossing it in the middle.
In order to make the mobile straight, attach equally long thread on each end of the skewers and knot all four threads together.
Hang the mobile on a hook in order to be able to attach the bunnies easy. That makes your life easier binding the bunnies on the skewers.
Attach the ready made bunnies but make sure they hang on different heights to make it more interesting. Try to have the weight of the bunnies equally distributed.
Hang the ready made mobile in front of a window – looks so pretty.
How to make a Floral ring:
- Use a pretty wrapping band and glue it on the outside and inside of the ring in order to cover the wood.
2. Equally distribute the four pieces of thread, rope or wrapping band to hang the ring straight on to a hook.
3. Attach the thread to the easter eggs by using hot glue or clear glue.
4. Make a knot and attach the easter eggs on to the floral ring.
5. Hang as many Easter eggs on the ring as you like.
And that’s it already. So easy and looks so pretty wherever you hang it up.
