The tradition of dying eggs goes back hundreds of years, and folks didn’t have food coloring readily available in the 1800s. Take a page out of @the_vintagearian’s book and boil cabbage to create a beautiful purple dye. Add baking soda to get a pastel blue effect. Use leafy herbs or flowers to make a design, and leave your eggs in the colorful water overnight to get the brightest results!
@ywmfamily Shaving Cream Easter Eggs! #eastereggs #easterdiy #didyouknow #tiptok #easter #spring #diy #eastercrafts #egghunt #diyeaster #easterhack Sunroof - Nicky Youre & dazy
This shaving cream dye trend was popular last year as well, but an idea this good never goes out of style. Use food coloring to create swirls in a mound of shaving cream, then drag your boiled eggs all through that rainbow road. Leave them sit for about 10 minutes, then give them a rinse and watch those colors come to life!
One more twist on the colored egg parade. This time, all you need are paper towels, some markers, glasses of white vinegar and hard-boiled eggs. Paint the towels with the marker ink, then wrap the towels around your eggs and twist to tie. Place the eggs in glasses of white vinegar to soak. The ink will seep into the egg shells, and you have a rather mess-free afternoon of fun!

If you’re more into paper crafts, this adorable bunny holder works perfectly with those popular Cadbury Cream Eggs. It takes a bit of patience and a steady hand with scissors, but a bit of glue and thoughtful construction paper cutouts make for one seriously cute candy holder!
@agirlandagluegun I think I love these more than Cadbury mini eggs. #fyp #dollartree #easter #easterbunny #eastercrafts #hotgluecrafts #dollartreediy Love You So - The King Khan & BBQ Show
If you want something that can sit outside in the lawn or bring a bit of spring’s greenery into your home, these moss bunnies are sure to bring a smile to your space. Another trip to the Dollar Store is in your future, this time to grab bowls, e6000 glue, wire bunnies, spray paint and craft moss. TikTokker @agirlandagluegun does admit this craft gets a bit tedious what with all the hot gluing of the moss, but the result is fabulous, and you can use different size bowls to make different size bunnies!

Another super cute bunny from the Dollar Tree. Grab wire frames, dry duster mops, egg decorations and Easter ribbon to create an adorable fuzzy bunny that will mount well on the wall or lean into any decorative spot you prefer. Just be careful with that hot glue gun. You don’t want your bunny to stick to the table while applying those fuzzy duster ears!

This might just be the most adorable craft on the whole stinkin’ list. If there’s a baby in your life, paint their little feet and freeze their tiniest years in time by leaving footprints on a piece of hefty paper. Use the same color paint to create bunny ears atop, and leave a loving message in the belly. It’s a keepsake and a heartwarming piece of holiday decor.

Another fun and festive way to wrap some Easter candy, these cardboard bunny pouches also require a steady hand with the scissors. The ears create a means to wrap your candy in the bunny head, thus creating the perfect little gift for kids and party goers alike.

Bring a bit of your Easter decor to the outdoors and show your spring spirit to every guest who stops by with this pastel door hanger. All you need is a spray-painted egg tray, some colorful egg decorations, craft moss, a few little Easter trinkets and ribbon. Oh, and of course a hot glue gun! TikTokker @averagebutinspired created a darling spring scene by placing a running bunny on her moss. A ribbon becomes a means to display, and you’re good to go!
