Easter DIY Ideas
Bunny Napkin Fold
Fold a napkin into a triangle, making sure the corners are even. Roll the point upward into the long side, then fold it in the middle into a U-shape with the corners at the top creating bunny ears. Rest an egg inside at the base of the fold and tie a ribbon or string at the top of the egg to hold the napkin around it. Draw a bunny face on the egg and voila, you have an adorable Easter bunny for a place setting!
Purchase a pan with bunny-shaped molds and a soap base of your choice. Cut the soap base into cubes, place them in a large microwavable bowl, and melt the soap by stirring it. Stir in an essential oil (lemon, orange, and lavender are perfect for spring) to give it a nice scent and mix in 1-2 drops of food coloring in a pastel color. Pour the soap mixture into the bunny molds, then allow it to set for a few hours before removing them for use.
Distressed Mason Jars
Paint a clean mason jar with two coats of chalk paint in a neutral or pastel color, such as blush pink, seafoam green, robin’s egg blue, white, or grey. Let the paint dry completely between each coat. Then, distress the dried paint with a piece of sandpaper. Go along the rim, raised edges, text, and logo to bring out the design and make it look vintage. To finish it off, fill it with some pretty flowers. Do 3 or 5 mason jars in different colors for a charming centerpiece or general décor.
Paint some eggs with black chalk paint, then customize them by writing on them with chalk. You can write your guests’ names on them to serve as place cards or just have fun drawing Easter-related messages and doodles on them. This is super simple and a lot of fun for kids and adults alike!
Easter Bunny Goodie Bags
Create bunny ears on a small paper bag by cutting a deep V-shape at the top of the bag. Fill your bag with Easter treats or gifts of your choice, then tie the bag at the base of the ears with pretty twine, yarn, or string and include a tag with the recipient’s name (or simply “Happy Easter!”). Finally, add a white or colorful pom-pom toward the bottom of the bag to create a cute little bunny tail.
