Can you believe that Easter is just over a week away? If you aren’t ready yet, I’ve gathered some of the best ideas around the web for a perfect Easter that you can put together quickly. In fact, I’ll be preparing right along with you. Why? I have to start our Easter gifts all over again. I had previously purchased everything for our baskets weeks in advance, congratulating myself on being prepared so early. Yeah, tip for you: If you prepare in advance for holidays, you had better have a good (or fantastic) hiding place for the gifts! I, unfortunately had a major lapse in judgement and put the bag of goodies in my office. Not only did the kids find it but, staying true-to-form, they proceeded to pull out and examine every. Single. Thing. So I will be starting all over again. This Easter round-up will be my first stop in the new preparations!
Lois @ Walking on Sunshine
I had never even heard of Easter bread before but this is such a neat idea. I see a new family tradition in our future.
Jenny @ Bloom Designs
How adorable are these cupcakes? I love that the “grass” is sprinkles plus they are super easy to put together.
Jen @ Cincy Shopper
If you want to make a brownie better, add some of that Easter candy to them. These Cadbury Egg brownies look absolutely decadent!
Gina @ Kleinworth & Co.
Brownies not your thing? We can’t be friends anymore… actually, we totally can because it means I can bogart all of the brownies. For you, try your hand at this beautiful spring cake! I love how she cut off the edges so you can see all of that confetti beauty.
Laura & Angela @ About a Mom
These graham cracker Easter treats are the perfect easy treat for the kids this holiday. If your kids are anything like mine, they will flip for these!
Christene @ Keys to Inspiration
If you are feeling more ambitious than I am, you should totally make these homemade Peeps. These are perfect if you already own a mold and a stand mixer. Maybe I could make little “Peep” footballs since I already own that mold.
Crafts a la Mode
Lighten up your Easter fare with these super-simple chocolate-dipped strawberry carrots. Adorable and easy are the perfect match for your gathering.
Erin @ How to Nest for Less
This chalkboard idea is perfect, especially if you already use one in your décor. In fact, I’m thinking about getting (read: making) my own chalkboard for the wall because of the ease of holiday decorating. Don’t worry. I’ll share the tutorial when I do.
This beautiful wreath is so easy to make and it is made with items you probably already have lying around. That is what you call double-score décor!
Katrin @ Kreativ K
This quick Easter nest is perfect if you like vintage décor. Bonus? The clean up after the holiday will be a snap!
Erin @ How to Nest for Less
This mesh wreath is another beautiful addition to your décor. She lays it out very clearly so even if you’re a little afraid of working with mesh, like me, you will be able to follow it.
If you’re looking for a super easy Easter décor craft, try making this Moss Bunny Wall Art. It is literally like an adult cut-and-paste project and the end result is beautiful!
Dee @ Meatloaf and Melodrama
Another easy décor idea is this Washi Tape Egg Garland. You can easily change up the style to match your own simply by changing the washi tape you use. That makes this the perfect quick DIY for your get-together.
Rachel @ Craving Some Creativity
These folded felt bunny bags are too cute! If you put these in the baskets instead of the individual packs of candy, you’ll save money too. Not to mention, you can control the portions this way which I’m a huge fan of.
Keep the kids busy while they wait for dinner with these free printable coloring pages. There are tons to choose from and you will buy yourself at least 5 extra minutes of prep time without the wines of hungry little ones.
Decor to Adore
These little Easter cottages are adorable and she provides the template right on her site! I love all of the glitter and bright colors. These are perfect for a festive Easter mantel.
Cindy @ Little Miss Celebration
You can also make these awesome stand-up paper eggs. These would be an easy and fun centerpiece for your table.
Kara @ The Joys of Boys
Give your kids even more excitement by dressing up their plastic eggs like aliens. Or, gather all of the materials together and let them create their own after the egg hunt!
Easter Gifts and Baskets
Sheila Rogers @ Brain Power Boy
Even a grown adult would delight to find these adorable Duplo animals in their basket! Such a fun idea that is also useful after the holiday is over. This is an easy way to add a non-candy treat to kids’ baskets.
Katie @ The Crafty Blog Stalker
Check out The Crafty Blog Stalker for basket ideas that aren’t baskets. My favorite is this adorable little watering can idea! Small, cute, and purposeful… that is 3 of my favorite things.
Don’t forget to give yourself a little something for Easter as well. These DIY Easter egg bath bombs are the perfect thing to deck your basket with.
Mandi @ Moments with Mandi
Another idea to break up the candy to kid ratio is to make these super cute S’mores Peep Treat Bags. One box of Peeps will go a lot farther this way.
Dinah @ DIY Inspired
Make recycled treats with these basket cups. These would be great at all of the table settings. They are small and only hold a few pieces of candy so you don’t have to worry about people spoiling their appetite.
Jenny @ Bloom Designs
Lastly, this “Bunny Bait” is super adorable. She even provides free printable labels so you don’t have to worry about designing your own.
With this awesome list of ideas, you’ll have your Easter on track in no time. Even if you’re starting all over, don’t worry. There’s still time to create your perfect holiday gathering. You can also check out even more Easter ideas right here.
