    The tutorial uses empty dyed eggs, but you could also use wooden or plastic eggs.

    2. Cut out some cute bunnies, glue pom poms on their little behinds, and turn them into bunting.

    Simple and adorable! Here's the tutorial.

    4. Wrap newspaper in packing tape and orange twine for some ~rustic carrot decor~.

    Super easy and cheap, and you could make the greens out of green ribbon if you don't want to buy fake grass. Here's how to make them.

    5. Dye a dozen eggs varying shades of blue, then flick with gold paint to make pretty robin's eggs.

    You can do these while the kids dye their eggs. All you'll need (besides dye) is gold paint and a brush. Here's how to do it.

    6. Pin some Peeps to a foam wreath with toothpicks, then top with a bow and hang on your door.

    Although if your door is exposed to the ~elements~, maybe hang it in your kitchen, instead. Get the tutorial here.

    7. Melt some chocolate, spread it around, and top it with colorful bunny-shaped candy.

    You could even skip the colorful white chocolate layer if you wanted, just to make it a little easier. Get the recipe for this Easter Extravaganza Bark here.

    8. Make a cheese ball in the shape of a carrot, and sprinkle cheddar on top to make it orange.

    16. Fill un-dyed eggs with tempera paint and throw them at a canvas.

    As pretty as a Pollock. You could also fill water balloons with paint, if you didn't want to empty eggs. Here's the tutorial.

    17. Turn plastic eggs into maracas with masking tape, spoons, and markers.
