Last Minute Easter DIY's
With St. Patrick’s Day and Easter so close together this year, there’s hardly enough time to go all-out with the Easter crafting. But there’s always room to squeeze in just one. To me, it’s important that Easter crafts are not cheesy but beautiful and take advantage of the advent of spring in all its blooming glory. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite DIYs from around the web for Easter.
Easter egg terrariums
Ok, guilty, I totally made these terrariums for my blog, but I have to say that I think they might be my favorite project of all time. I scored big time in finding clear plastic eggs at the grocery store and knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. I think they’d be a perfect gift for parents or a girl friend, especially if they don’t eat candy.
Beautiful floral arrangements for your visitors for Easter
Easter typically means family gatherings, which means that there’s no better opportunity to use beautiful blossoms that only spring can bring. Martha Stewart shows how to make this cherry blossom and dogwood arrangement. Like, you can actually make this!
Gold leaf eggs
I just love these gold leaf eggs. If you’re going for sophistication over cutesy, these are your thing.
Victoria of A Subtle Revelry made the cutest art prints made from….are you ready? Vegetable stubs! Just section off some celery and carrots and you’re good to go. Love it.

Easter bunting for the home
Cyd of The Sweetest Occasion showed this Easter bunting on her blog. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and subtle.

Easter egg florals
What better way to create a vase than with egg shells! I love mixing in the elements of a holiday and making them useful. Another example of this is putting flowers in a pumpkin for Halloween. So clever.
Easter nest place setting
And you always need something for the table. Try Martha Stewart’s nesting eggs for the table setting. Sweet and simple.
