With all the pretty Easter decor and crafts in stores, it’s hard to resist picking up a few. But how many plastic eggs or that synthetic grass do we need? Maybe you’re looking to lighten your carbon footprint this spring; if so, you may want to consider these Eco-friendly Easter crafts and decor ideas to make yourself.
Eco-friendly Easter Crafts and Decor Ideas
Perhaps, like me you already have plenty of Easter decor and crafts in your closet from last year…and the year before. Today, I’ve chosen a few unique Easter ideas that you can make with supplies you may already have. If you like the vintage cottage design, you’ll especially love these ideas.
Decorative Easter eggs made of paper
You’ll need spring decorative paper, small decorative punch, such as a flower or petal, plastic egg or any other kind, and glue.
Punch out decorative paper with a small punch and clue punched pieces together, then glue all around the egg starting from the bottom working your way up.
Make an Easter bouquet with fresh flowers
If you’re lucky enough to have these flowers growing in your garden, you’re one step ahead. If not, see if you can find them or something similar at your local farmer’s market. This Easter bouquet makes the best eco-friendly gift with that special touch for your special green friend.
White eggs with different facial expressions
Get the kids involved in this one. All you need is hard-boiled eggs, a permanent marker, and an imagination.
Yarn wrapped bottles and Easter eggs
Get some different colored yarn and start wrapping around a bottle and some eggs of any kind. – preferably white eggs.
Easter egg tied with a ribbon
A simple yet elegant Easter decor. Boil a few eggs, then dip them in tea or coffee to give them a vintage look, tie a pretty golden bow around each egg. Get some real dead grass from your yard to put inside a basket and place the decorated eggs inside.
These Eco-friendly Easter crafts and decor ideas will steal your heart – and your friends, and your kids’ teachers!
Hanging Easter egg wrapped with jute
Get a roll of jute and a bunch of plastic eggs left over from last year. Start by making a large loop with the jute and tie a knot at the bottom. With the long piece of jute start wrapping around the egg. Tie a colorful ribbon around the knotted part and hang.
Vintage homespun Easter eggs
- three wooden or plastic eggs
Easter egg bunnies craft
After you dye the Easter eggs a dark tan color, grab a black marker to make this adorable face, cut out some bunny ears and glue to the back of the eggs, then lay these cuties in a basket with green grass and fluff. Too cute.
Upcycled gift wrap
And lastly, what could be better than an Eco-friendly Easter craft that you made wrapped in recyclable brown paper? Add some jute, and maybe even some burlap wrapped around the brown paper, then tie with jute (not shown)?
Isn’t this the best way to reuse and to recycle packaging materials? AND, don’t forget to make a gift tag too.
Be proud of your accomplishments and display your Easter arts and crafts on a shelf or a coffee table so everyone can see them.
