With Easter only a few days away, is there really any time left for crafting? Certainly! I’ve put together a list of stylish Easter crafts that you can still make this week. Sometimes it’s so easy to brighten our special moments just a little bit more!
We all know these pre-Easter days are a challenge to say the least.
Keep calm and decorate some eggs!
1. These delicate neutral Easter eggs are simply gorgeous and so easy to put together – no mess, no stress! Not to mention the therapeutic effect of focusing on such simple patterns and calming colors. See Kaley’s advice on Kaley Ann.
2. Create these intricate patterns on Easter eggs using laced fabrics and classic dyes. Try to match the eggs to your table setting palette: pastels, deep colors or even gray-scale. Instructions at Better Homes And Gardens.
3. Did you know you can transfer colors and patterns from silk fabric onto eggs so perfectly? Looks like the perfect use for old thrift store ties. Step-by-step tutorial at Our Best Bites.
4. Make these simply beautiful egg angels with flower crowns. Such a simple idea, yet so perfectly put together. A serene and peaceful addition to your Easter table from Flax And Twine.
Now with the eggs done, let’s focus on the table setting.
It is after all the highlight of the day! Gather your loved ones around these handmade centerpieces.
5. Use eggshells as micro planters. If you forgot to sprout some fresh grass a couple of weeks ago, just transfer tiny succulents into the eggshells. Check out Le Robins Nest for instructions.
6. Alternatively, make some bud vases from eggshells. See this lovely rose display at Craftberry Bush but feel free to use your favorite flowers. How about peonies?
7. Or you could make these eggshell candles for an outdoor Easter dinner. Add a few drops of essential oils for an insect repellent effect. Learn how to make them from Carissa at Creative Green Living.
8. This recycled paper shopping bag Easter basket can be the perfect neutral backdrop for your loveliest easter eggs this year. SheKnows (and) shows you how to make it.
9. This Easter table runner can be made for pennies. It’s fun, easy to make and after all, a rabbit’s tail counts as a good luck charm. How many can you fit on your easter table? Get the instructions and bunny silhouette at Eclectically Vintage.
10. Easter 2 days away and you still don’t have a statement item for your table? This napkin ring is the easiest fix for your problem. See the how-to at Gimme Some Oven.
Table setting? Check! Now, let the treats come!
11. Bake some brownies in eggshells. Sandra‘s recipe is in Spanish, but the pictures serve their inspirational purpose. Either translate her recipe or try to use your favorite.
12. Sandra came up with this other cute idea too. No instructions here, but the method is simple enough: bake the chocolate cake first, cut out many bunnies of the same sort, arrange them standing on the bottom of your baking pan, tightly together, then pour the vanilla batter and bake again.

All set! Now let’s prepare for the party. Create stylish but fun Easter accessories for yourself and your guests!
14. Make an Easter necklace that is actually wearable. These chic eggs pendants will no doubt be one of your favorite accessories over the summer. Let’s thank Sarah from Sarah Ortega for that!
15. If you’ll have kids around on Easter day, wouldn’t you love to have them wearing these cute bunny ears? At least for a short photo session. See how to make them at The House that Lars Built.
16. And while you’re at it, why not make a pair for the dog? No instructions at Love Maegan, but the project seems easy enough to make freehand.
17. Gather all guests for a confetti fight with confetti filled eggs. Don’t forget to put your camera on auto shoot! Check out Oh Happy Day for the how-to and some moody pictures.
18. Make a delicate doily Easter basket for your stylish little girl. See how at A Bit Of Sunshine and don’t forget to match it to her outfit.
Still have time on your hands after all these ideas? Get one step ahead and think about some cute after-party touches.
19. Egg thumbprint keepsake – great for grandparents when made with tiny little fingerprints. See two cute ideas over at Spoonful.
20. Bunny shaped treat pouches. Great for kids but also basic enough for grown-ups too. The Sweetest Occasion shows you how.
21. It’s a bit late for Easter greeting cards, but I couldn’t pass this one up. Just in time to use as Thank You cards, see the free pattern and instructions over at Poppy Talk.
22. This one might be the best after-Easter craft (not counting egg salad). Grow gorgeous geodes in empty eggshells, following the instructions at Sweet Paul Mag.
Time is still on your side! Even though there are only a few more days until Easter, most of these stylish Easter crafts can be made in less than an hour, with materials you probably already have at home. You have no excuse now!
