1. Arrange some fake branches in a mason jar, then adorn them with washi tape-decorated eggs.

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.

Get the how-to and the template here.

3. Blow up a few colorful balloons, then use acrylic paint to make them look like eggs.

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.

If you have carrot greens around, you could use those instead of parsley. Get the recipe for this Easter Carrot Cheese Ball here.

9. Layer Peeps on top of chocolate chips and peanut butter, then bake and serve with graham crackers.

10. Mix popcorn and bunny grahams with melted butter and marshmallows, then sprinkle with candy.

11. Sneak some veggies and some color into your deviled eggs with the help of a beet.

12. Easter-ize your puppy chow with some pastel M&Ms.

You can make it in the microwave! Get the recipe for this Bunny Chow here.

13. Carry the pastel theme over to your margs with the help of some fresh grapefruit.

Here’s how to make Spicy Grapefruit Margaritas (skip the spiciness by swapping in plain simple syrup).

14. Make more than your basic egg dyeing colors, even with your basic food coloring options.

From here. Although natural-dyed eggs are quite gorgeous, and if you’d rather do that, you can learn how here.

15. Or go all-out and make color-changing or swirled eggs.

 

I’m in love with the colors! Learn how to make the color-changing eggs here, and the color-swirled eggs here.

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.

You could also use paint if you’re willing to let things get a lil’ messy. Learn how to make them here.

18. Thread big jelly beans onto jewelry cord to make jelly bean necklaces.

Candy jewelry is the most fun kind of jewelry. Here’s how to make them.

19. Mix up some DIY puffy paint to make pretty Peep bunnies.

 

Or you know, something that lets you color outside the lines. It would be the BEST for finger painting. Learn how to make the paint here.

Or, go the easy route, and pour some wine into a chocolate bunny.
