So we’ve official Sprung forward thanks to Daylight’s Savings Time and that means Easter is just around the corner. Last year we posted a variety of Easter ideas ranging from decoration, treats, and egg decorating methods, you can peruse them here if you’d like a recap, but here we have some new and festively fresh ideas for you.
|Easter Egg Bunny and Chick Garland|
Absolutely love this idea for a Easter garland, using plastic easter eggs, felt, puff paint, hot glue and twine with buttons or pom-poms. Personally I really like the bunnies and white pom-pom one best. Mix things up, make it your own, use other materials instead of buttons or pom-poms.

Easier but just as cute garland. Cut out a bunny shape out of festive patterned paper and attach a cotton ball or pom-pom for the tail and string up with twine or ribbon. The kids could even help make them, a easy and fun Easter activity.
|Jelly Bean Necklace|

Editable and fashionable. Using stretchy string, a needle, and of course Jelly beans you can create your own, they make kid gifts, especially for the tweens. Go for a mixed freestyle unplanned one by randomly selecting Jelly Beans, or plan it out with a pattern of sorts for a more composed look. Make bracelets as well by using short stretchy string and less Jelly Beans.

Only a few ingredients, super easy, fast, and not to mention adorable and delicious. If you don’t have an edible marker while the white chocolate is still wet you can place two mini chocolate chips for the eyes. You can even make it a lollipop, just follow instructions found here though you’ll ant smoother chocolate than seen in the instructions there.
|Italian Easter Bread|

This is a traditional Italian Easter recipe. A sweet bread, with a glaze and sprinkles. As you can see the bread is braided around a colorful dyed hard boiled egg. This bread is flavored with vanilla and anise. It is quite a beautiful treat.
|Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies|

The easter colored m&m’s really make this perfect for the Holiday, only takes cake, sprinkles and m&m’s. Of course their going to be yummy, and nobody needs to know how easy they were to make.
|Bunny Coconut Cupcakes|
|source Styling My Everyday
Using the same technique from the bunny oreos to make bunny ears out of marshmallows, add them to the top of cupcakes for a sweetly cute dessert. Now if you do not like coconut you can make a vanilla cupcake, top with a white frosting of your choice and leave the coconut shavings off.
|Layered Peep Rice Krispie Treat|

Using those little Easter Treats that seem to never run out in place of the marshmallows in a Rice Krispie bar recipe, layer them to make them colorful and place on a stick for a cute treat thats super easy to make.
|Robin Egg Fudge|

This fudge recipe makes use of those delicious chocolate malt balls also known as Robin’s eggs. Full of Easter color, easy to make and a real treat.
|Temporary Tattoo Eggs|

Apply any small temporary tattoo to the surface of the egg just like you would to your skin. I don’t know how it would turn out if you dye the egg afterwards, possible tint the tattoo as well, and if you dye it before the color will sow through the tattoo. You can paint the dye on the egg while avoiding going over the tattoo, or use permanent markers.
|Rubber Cement Technique|
Start by dying your egg a light shade of a color, dry, drizzle with rubber cement, dry again, dye in another color for longer so the color is darker, dry again, you can add more cement and dye another color, or peel the cement off and ta-da you have a really cool egg.
