Speckled eggs, marbled eggs, dyed eggs....tired of the same old Easter crafts? We gathered projects with only one requirement: No eggs.
We know, Easter wouldn't be the same without colorful eggs. But how many different ways can you decorate with them? We decided it's time to collect fresh ideas for crafts that think outside the egg -- err, box.
Easter Craft #1: Moss Centerpiece
We loved this craft as soon as we spied it on Craftynest
. Even though the flowery stump and moss arrangement is technically a centerpiece, we can see this craft decorating any part of your home. You don't even have to add the lettering -- the colorful arrangement can be decoration enough. Each project is unique due to the authentic wood stumps and moss clumps. What a creative way to bring outdoor elements inside to celebrate spring! Find out how to make this moss centerpiece
and get crafting.
Easter Craft #2: Cookies
OK, technically these include eggs -- in the batter. But this Easter, let your sugar cookies take a new shape. Be inspired by spring: Try decorating your sweet treats as birds, flowers, bumble bees and ladybugs. Experiment with food coloring and vanilla icing for the perfect spring hue.
Easter Craft #3: Sock Bunny
My Paper Crane
has the instructions for this adorable craft. Altered from what we recognize as a sock monkey, this bunny is super simple and super cute. And it's fitting for the season. Get the step-by-step
to surprise your little ones with this homemade Easter basket treat.
