Eco-Friendly Easter Crafts

Y’all, do not freak out that I’m not showing you any cute ways to decorate Easter eggs in this post. Eco-friendly Easter eggs are a Big Deal to me, and they’re going to get their own series of posts later.

In the meantime, here are all the eco-friendly non-Easter egg ways to decorate your home for Easter!

1. bunny blocksScrap blocks and paint and bunnies!

2. bunny luminariesUpcycle old jars into these sweet Easter luminaries.

3. button Easter eggI LOVE the way that you can use such a variety of buttons in this project.

4. doily Easter eggsDo you have doilies leftover from your handmade Valentine crafting? Turn them into Easter eggs!

5. Easter basketsThese are all DIY and eco-friendly.

6. Easter bunny board art. Use a nice, flat scrap board here. A pallet board would work well, if you sealed it afterwards.

18. toilet paper tube Easter stampsYou can make a bunny or Easter eggs.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.
