DIY Spring and Easter Decorations

Looking for some budget-friendly and easy DIY decorations to spruce up your home for spring and Easter? Look no further than Dollar Tree! With a few simple items and some creativity, you can create festive and charming decorations that will brighten up any space.

First up, grab some clothespins and break them apart. You’ll need eight pieces for each item you’re making, so four clothespins in total. Paint them orange and then dry brush some white paint on top for a farmhouse look. Add some extra greenery and glue the clothespins together to create cute carrot decorations. These can be used to create a fun and festive vignette, or even as part of a wreath.

Next, create a bunny decoration using a wooden cutout from Dollar Tree and some cardstock. Cut out flower shapes from the cardstock and twist them into a flower shape, gluing them together as you go. Attach the flowers to the wooden cutout to create a colorful and whimsical bunny decoration.

For a more religious-themed decoration, use a grapevine wreath and toothpicks to create a crown of thorns. Simply deconstruct a bunny decoration from Dollar Tree and remove the chicken wire and ears. Paint the toothpicks brown and attach them to the wreath to create the crown of thorns. This decoration can be hung on a door or used as part of a larger Easter display.

With these simple and affordable DIY decorations, you can add a touch of spring and Easter cheer to your home in no time. So grab some supplies from Dollar Tree and get crafting!

Clothespin Carrots

Painting and Dry Brushing

To create the clothespin carrots, the crafter starts by breaking apart four clothespins and painting them orange. Once the orange paint has dried, the crafter dry brushes white paint onto the clothespins to give them a farmhouse look. If desired, brown wax can be added instead of white paint.

Assembling Carrots

After the paint has dried, the crafter glues two clothespin pieces flat side to flat side, creating four clusters. The crafter then glues two clusters together, flat side to flat side, to create a “V” shape. The third cluster is glued to the center of the “V” shape, and the fourth cluster is glued to the back in the same manner. The crafter adds greenery to the opening at the top of the carrot.

Adding Greenery and Ribbon

Finally, the crafter adds ribbon to the carrot by cutting down a ribbon to the desired width and tying it around the top. The clothespin carrots can be used to decorate a vignette or as part of a centerpiece for spring or Easter.

Wood Bunny Cutout

Creating Paper Flowers

In this section, the speaker demonstrates how to create paper flowers for the wood bunny cutout. The speaker starts by cutting squiggles into a spiral shape on an off-white cardstock sheet. Once the spiral is complete, the speaker twists the paper to create a flower-like shape. The speaker glues the twisted paper to create a bottom pad and adds a fluffy tail made of hot glue. For the other flowers, the speaker uses pastel-colored cardstock and creates flowers of various sizes. The speaker ties a chiffon ribbon around the bunny’s neck to complete the decoration.

Assembling Bunny Decor

In this section, the speaker demonstrates how to assemble the wood bunny cutout. The speaker starts by deconstructing a grapevine wreath and using toothpicks painted brown to create a crown of thorns. The speaker attaches the toothpicks to the wreath and adds a wooden bunny to the center. The speaker then proceeds to create carrot decorations using clothespins and greenery. The clothespins are painted orange and dry-brushed with white paint to create a farmhouse look. The speaker glues the clothespins together to create the carrot shape and adds greenery to the top. The speaker ties a ribbon around the carrot to complete the decoration. The speaker suggests using the wood bunny cutout as a wreath or a leaner sign.

Grapevine Wreath Crown

Deconstructing Bunny Form

To create a crown of thorns, the crafter starts by deconstructing a bunny form purchased from Dollar Tree. The bunny form is made up of chicken wire and ears that need to be removed. The bunny form is then cut into two different wreath forms using tin snips. The crafter saves the bigger wreath form for later and removes the chicken wire from the center of the smaller wreath form. The next step is to add toothpicks, which are painted brown to match the grapevine wreath, to the smaller wreath form. The toothpicks are added to create a crown of thorns effect, with around 30 toothpicks used in total.

Creating Crown of Thorns

The grapevine wreath crown is made using a grapevine wreath purchased from Dollar Tree. If a grapevine wreath is not available, the bunny form can be used as a substitute. The crafter adds toothpicks to the wreath form, painting them brown to match the wreath. The toothpicks are added in a circular pattern to create a crown of thorns effect. This DIY project is perfect for those looking to add a religious touch to their Easter decorations.
