This way you can have your Easter cake and eat it too by making your own affordable DIY Pinterest decorations. Eleven beautiful and unique ideas are listed below to make this Easter hunt easy.
Making this impressive wreath will cost you less than $10.00. The main purchases are about 20 skeins of embroidery thread, Sta-Flo, which is a concentrated liquid starch, and a package of water balloons.

You will feel like part of a springtime wonderland with this magical decoration and conversation piece. The contents flowing from the cup seem to be magically suspended in air. It is quite a sight to behold and one your family and guests will never forget!
- Coffee cup and saucer
- Easter eggs
- Scissors or wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
- Ornaments: beads, butterflies, ribbon, etc.
These adorable, inquisitive bunnies will have everyone in love and wanting to give them a helping hand or paw. Make a large one for a table centerpiece or create small versions for each place setting that your guests can keep.
- Terra cotta pots
- Fake greenery or green felt
- Artificial flowers
- Small and large pom poms (depending on the size of your bunny)
- A hot glue gun
- Felt for the feet
- Easter eggs or Easter treats to put inside
This DIY is for a basic green topiary. To make it for Easter simply add small Easter eggs or spring flowers cut from the stems. Use a glue gun to hold the items securely.
- Faux greenery ball
- Terra cotta pots
- Floral foam
- Modeling clay
- Paint (green, brown, white)
- Plastic dish
- Hairspray (optional)
- Hot glue gun
- Large knife
Although the instructions call for fresh flowers and real hard-boiled eggs, for a centerpiece that will last, I would use artificial flowers and plastic Easter eggs from Walmart. Although using real items may be inexpensive, the lasting version is too. And in my opinion, anything that can be used over and over for years to come is a money saver.
- Sweet Peas, two different shades
- Five dozen white eggs
- Geranium leaves
- A wire basket
- A clear vase for inside the basket
If rustic decor is more your thing then this bunny art will fit right in. Go with a natural wood look or add pretty pastels. Add a natural cotton ball or a unique embellishment to make this cottontail the cutest bunny on your trail or block.
- Pallet boards cut to size
- Acrylic paint in assorted colors
- Air nailer or nails and hammer
- Fabric scraps
This link shows the picture but does not include instructions. However, from experience, all you do is purchase glass candlesticks from the Dollar Tree and any glass cylinder or vase that you prefer. Glue them together with glass glue. Sit something heavy on top and give it 12–24 hours to harden. Then simply fill with moss, eggs, bunnies, chicks or anything else that fits your Easter decor.
- Glass candlesticks
- Glass cylinders, vases, or dishes
- Glass glue
- Craft moss
- Small eggs, bunnies or any spring/Easter fillers
This wreath is a little bit more kid-friendly. Not that Easter eggs and flowers aren’t. But there’s nothing like a fluffy bunny to light up the eyes of children. And this craft is easy enough for them to want to help. My suggestion would be to substitute making the ears by cutting them off of an inexpensive pair of headband bunny ears. These are often available at dollar stores or Wal-Mart and will have a well-made, finished look.
- 16” metal wreath form
- Hot pink glitter felt
- White feather boas
- Hot glue gun
Turn any dollar store or thrift-store rabbit into an Easter foil wrapped bunny. From nostalgia to the resent day, foil wrapped treats are loaded with Easter memories. And now these memories can be made to last with a simple can of metallic spray paint.
- Metallic spray paint
Last but definitely not least is a simple cross made from sticks. These can be gathered from anywhere, maybe even your own backyard. I would finish it off by placing a single dogwood bloom in the center.
- Rubber band or string
- Dogwood bloom or other embellishments
