Crafts: How to Make 3 Fun Easter Crafts

We just moved into our forever-home, and will be hosting Easter brunch in a few weeks…kind of a big deal. Thankfully, party planning comes pretty naturally to me, and it's something I really enjoy.

3 Fun Crafts for Easter

Here are three fun and easy ways to decorate your home for Easter:

Finger Painted Name Cards

Naturally, I wanted to get my budding petit-artiste Owen (21months) involved in the crafting. I thought fun, sensory and easy projects for him to do and well…let’s just say that he had a blast finger painting.

What ever was I going to use his masterpieces for? I’ve been planning our menu for quite a while, and with every party I do, I tend to gravitate toward buffet set ups and tent card labels for the food. It seemed only fitting to use his works of art for the tent cards.

Easter Egg Garland

To go across the hearth of our new {swoonworthy} fireplace, I took a queue from Pinterest and created my own paint chip Easter egg garland. It quite possibly was the easiest thing I’ve created in a long time and I would highly suggest you do it.

I used Disney paint chips from Home Depot, since they seemed to be the only two-tone chips—and the most cheerful. Then I traced a free hand egg, cut the chips and voila! Garland!

Not only was it easy, it was also super economical. I already had the ribbon in my craft supplies, and the paint chips…free!

Dessert Table Centerpiece

The last piece I create will be the centerpiece of our dessert table, and it literally took me all of 5 minutes to design:

And because I love you Mama’s oh-so-much and want nothing more than for each of you to have a beautiful Easter with your families, full of memories—and chocolate—I made it into a free printable for you to download!

Happy Easter!
