For this whimsical, casual Easter table centerpiece, I’ve filled this vintage 1 liter milk jug (a ‘family heirloom’) with Easter basket straw, some of my decorated Kinder Easter eggs (for an Easter Egg scavenger hunt), some flowers and a baby chick for an easy, fun and festive table decoration.

3. BAKING: 100% Cute Bunny Cake Pops

Imagine that you could actually make these? Seems a daunting project to me, but then again, I’m off sugar completely, so the incentive to go those extra 5 miles for sugary sweeties is just not there with me. However, there’s no denying: these Easter bunnies are 100% cute. Make great gifts.

6. MIXED MEDIA: DIY Easter Decor : Fun Easter Garland

This is a personal favorite. Very easy to make, and adds great whimsy to your Easter home decor. Simply follow a pattern of ribbons, embellished hand cut flower from craft paper, or recycled cardboard, eggs from recycled wrapping paper, and with a glue gun, add them to several strings of raffia.

These last 2 original easter craft ideas were in my ‘inspiration’ file (my file of stuff that ‘I want to make my own versions of, one day).

I am still to make my own versions, but I nonetheless want to share these non-sourced inspirations with you.

I recall the garland was for sale.

Not sure about the Easter bunny card.
