Today I am sharing some very creative Easter Crafts Ideas. You can use mostly household items to make these Easter Crafts DIY.
I love to decorate Easter Eggs. In the past few years I have made these, and these. Of course, many years ago, I would open up the PAAS box, boiled water, and decorated eggs. But times have changed so yesterday I sat at my craft table today and played. I started with paint and ended up using bubble wrap! Here are the Easter craft ideas I came up with!
Easter Craft Ideas
I started with a dozen white wooden eggs. I think they are so much easier to work with (than real eggs). You don’t have to put them in the refrigerator when you are done and they don’t spoil. The wooden eggs last forever and can be stored in a decor box for eleven months with no problems!
At first I painted some eggs pink, purple and melon. But I didn’t like them so they were set aside.
I had purchased some very fun Easter looking green napkins and I decided to use them. Then I started painting and playing and these eggs are what I ended up with.
Aren’t they fun?
I like textures. I like things that are similar in color. I had some netting nearby and loved the effect so I scoured my craft room for more things to use for my Easter craft idea.
Just in case you are wondering, the ability level for this craft is EASY. Anyone can make these. I promise.
I only made nine because I ran out of time. I have another dozen of the white wood eggs and I think I am going to make more because I love how these turned out.

How to Make These DIY Easter Crafts Eggs
What You Need
- Wooden Easter Eggs (you can use hardboiled if you aren’t planning on displaying them in your home)
- Acrylic Paint
- Paper Napkins with a fun design
- Assorted items for texture – bubble wrap, string, ribbon, mesh netting, etc.
- Paint Brush
- Tacky Glue
- Matte Acrylic Spray Paint
Easter Eggs Covered in Napkins
Tear the napkins in to small pieces. Cover the egg with tacky glue and attach napkin pieces. If the napkins are two-ply you can use just the top layer or both layers of the napkin.
Cover the egg in glue and let dry. Spray will matte sealer.
Easter Eggs Covered in Napkins
Some napkins have multiple colors and designs so I used the same napkin to make an entirely different look.
Follow the same directions as above.
Eggs Rolled in Netting
These eggs were so easy to make. All I did was cut a row of netting.
Next, I painted one side of the netting and then laid the egg on top.
I carefully rolled the egg on top of the netting and carefully “painted” the egg. Spray will matte sealer.
Eggs Patterned with Small Bubble Wrap
I love these eggs so much!
I found some really small bubble wrap in my craft room. All I did was cut it into some strips and carefully apply paint.
Then I slowly dapped the bubble wrap on top of the egg in different places. I love the uneven pattern so much. Spray will matte sealer.
Painted Eggs Rolled in bubble Wrap
This idea happened completely by accident.
First, I painted the eggs with acrylic paint. One of the eggs rolled over on to some bubble wrap and I loved the design it left.
So I did the same to the rest of the egg. Spray will matte sealer.
I put most of the eggs back into the plastic egg carton. I love how they look together.
