Spring is in the air and Easter is around the corner, so there’s no better time to get creative and try some bright and cheery crafts.

Here’s our round up of some of the best Easter craft tutorials on the web to help you make some cute spring decorations, sweet Easter treats, and homemade gifts.

Painted Eggs

Everyone loves to paint Easter eggs and it can be a particularly fun craft to do with children.

You can try drawing on your eggs, adding stickers and embellishments from a craft shop, or dipping them in food dye.

This Wax-Resist Egg Dyeing tutorial from Martha Stewart is great if you want to make your eggs stand out from the crowd.

We also love these funky Moustache Egg Men, which are a change from the usual patterns.

DIY Daffodils

That happy flower, the daffodil, is a sure sign that spring is in the air. This simple tutorial is lovely to do with children and produces cheerful looking homemade daffodils.

Pom Pom Easter Chicks

These cute little Easter chicks are very easy to make and would make sweet table decorations or gifts for young children.

Easter Biscuits

Make sure you have a batch of traditional fruity Easter Biscuits on hand when you’re creating your Easter crafts. This recipe by The Great British Bake Off’s Mary Berry is sure to go down a treat.

Paper Flowers

Liven up your walls with these beautiful, bright paper flowers. The tutorial has easy to follow instructions and will make a fantastic Easter decoration

Carrot Cupcake Toppers

If you want to make cupcakes with a difference this Easter, try topping them with a funky Easter decoration. This homemade carrot cupcake topper would look fantastic on the top of some tasty carrot cake cupcakes.

Knitted Easter Bunny

If you’ve made the carrot cakes, you need a bunny to sit alongside them. Knitters will love this adorable bunny pattern – you could make a few for a cute Easter picnic.

Homemade Chocolate Easter Eggs

If you make your own chocolate Easter eggs this year you’ll be able to personalise them for your loved ones and tailor the chocolate and fillings to their tastes. This Homemade Chocolate Easter Egg recipe is straightforward and will help you craft an Easter egg with a difference. You’ll find egg moulds easily online, or in retailers like Lakeland.
