25 Easy Spring Decorating Ideas We’re DIYing this Weekend
Whether you’re looking to grab the glue gun or get into the garden and show your green-thumb-prowess, there are plenty of ways to give a nod to the season this spring. From stunning Easter crafts, to beautiful dyed eggs, and amazing garden containers—there’s something for every space on this list.
Jelly Bean Tree
This trick is as simple as hot gluing jellybeans to cut branches you’ve collected from your yard.
Easter Egg Planters
These tiny planters are easier than you think. Use tiny ferns, bitty succulents, or fill with water and drop in a pretty flower bud.
Yarn Easter Eggs
Dyed eggs are beautiful, but they certainly don’t keep for more than a day or two when unrefrigerated. These yarn-wrapped eggs are the perfect alternative. The best part is, you can store them after the holiday is over and they’ll be good as new next year.
Decoupage Easter Eggs
If you’re not the best crafter, this might be the DIY project for you. Simply cut strips of paper and adhere to a paper mache egg with a layer of Modge Podge—no glue gun required.
Rye Grass Easter Basket
Imagine their surprise when they wake up on Easter morning to these Easter baskets stuffed with sweet treats.
Easter Floral Arrangement
We love the rustic charm of this arrangement. The crafter used natural speckled foam eggs, Baby’s Breath, and a wire basket to create the look.

Don’t worry, this wreath uses artificial blooms—meaning your handiwork will be admired year after year.
Easter Carton Planters
These little planters will make beautiful place card holders on your Easter lunch table.
Basket of Tulips Centerpiece
While this centerpiece is relatively easy, it isn’t as simple as throwing a few tulips in a basket. Check out blogger Julie Blanner’s technique for this show-stopping centerpiece.
Easter Egg Topiary
This Easter egg topiary is a lot easier than it looks. You should be able to find similar white planters at your local craft store for less that $5 each.
Wheat Grass Eggs
These egg shells double as wheat grass planters in this adorable centerpiece. Just be sure you allow enough time for the seeds to sprout.
Ombre Egg Centerpiece
If you can dye eggs, you can make this centerpiece. After you dye the eggs place them in a clear glass vessel for the easiest Easter centerpiece.
Iris Easter Basket
You don’t have to be a pro at flower arranging to make this stunning arrangement. Instead of cut flowers, we used potted iris plants.
How To Make The Most Adorable Easter Egg You’ve Ever Seen
Move over succulents, there’s a new trendy plant in town—the cactus. And although you could pick one up just about anywhere (even most grocery stores carry a version of the plant!), it's way more fun to make a faux cactus that’s perfect for Easter, or any spring celebration.
All you need is a mini terracotta pot, some sand, a hard-boiled egg, and a green marker to make this clever DIY from our friends at Real Simple. Pink crepe paper is optional, but we couldn't resist the pretty topper.
To extend the shelf life of this little DIY project (because who wouldn’t want to keep this on their desk or window sill forever?!), use a pin to poke two holes—one on the top and one on the bottom—in an uncooked egg. Then, put your mouth to the top hole and blow the contents of the egg into a small dish, the garbage, or the sink. (Bonus points for no waste and cooking the egg!) Once the egg is emptied, rinse it through warm water to ensure any excess comes out, then let dry. Continue with the craft as instructed below.
You'll need:Vinegar Warm water Green food coloring Hard-boiled egg Mini terracotta pot Masking tape Sand Green marker Pink crepe paper or tissue (optional)
Create the dye bath: Pour 1 cup hot water and 1 tablespoon white vinegar in a wide cup or small bowl. Stir in 20 drops of green food coloring.
Soak egg to desired hue, remove and pat dry with paper towel.
Use a fine-tipped dark green permanent marker to draw spikes or lines.
Cover the hole at the bottom of the terracotta pot with masking tape. Fill with sand and nestle egg inside.
Optional: Cut flower from crepe paper and attach to the top with a glue dot.
