Easter has different meanings to everyone. To some, it is a spiritual holiday. To others, it may be a time of rest, rejuvenation, and spending time with family. With Easter already right around the corner, you might want to take this time of year as an opportunity to shower your friends and family in love and appreciation.
DIY Easter gifts can be a great way to show your love for family and friends. Crafting your own gifts can also allow you to express your creativity, relax, and make something you are proud of. We have put together a list of ideas for DIY Easter gifts to try.
Egg Bath Bombs.
This is great gift that uses pantry staples to craft the perfect Easter-themed self-care gift. Use your favourite colour palette to bring these fun bombs together.
Bunny Lavender Bag.
Lavender bags are perfect for keeping clothes, linen, and rooms fresh and smelling good. These adorable little bags only require a few items including dried lavender, rice, and cotton fabric. You can make plenty to gift many of your loved ones. Not only do they smell great, but they look adorable!
Picket Fence Easter Basket.
This simple, yet gorgeous little garden-themed basket uses popsicle sticks and glue. Fill it with your favourite chocolate and lollies to create the most stunning, hand-crafted basket with yummy treats. If you decide to use a hot glue gun for this, make sure any children are supervised.
No Sew Sock Bunnies.
These adorable little bunnies are filled with rice and tied together with ribbon. They would make gorgeous decorative pieces for an Easter dining table, or walkway. It is also a great way to re-use and recycle any unmatched socks you have lying around in your drawers. A cute and sustainable DIY gift, easy for any age to make including children.
Mason Jar Easter Baskets.
Another basket gift, these are a great way to repurpose any old jam jars you have in your kitchen, or you can grab fresh mason jars from your local store. Simply paint the jar, and fill the inside with green tissue paper, or any tissue or tinfoil shred. Then top with easter eggs and a chocolate bunny. This customisable gift could also double as a cute décor piece for the recipient’s home.
Recycled Egg Carton for Easter Treats.
Grab those empty egg cartons and use them to create sweet treat cartons. Simply paint the carton with whatever colours and designs you want and fill the inside with treats. You could paint the recipient’s name, add a bow, and a gift tag with ribbon. The ideas are endless.
Easter Bunny Bags.
These simple gifts are a great way to create a gift that can be recycled after the holiday. Simply cut paper bags to make bunny ears, draw on a bunny face with black marker, and add a little pom-pom on the back for a bunny tail. Then fill the bag with yummy treats!
