1. DIY Colorful Easter Buckets: Forget the baskets this year, and opt for something a little more sturdy, like an Easter bucket full of goodies. To get this springtime look, decorate plain metal buckets with a fresh coat of paint in white or vibrant colors. Finish off the look with some paper flowers and pom-pom trim, then stuff them with your choice of chocolates and Peeps. (via Brit + Co)

2. DIY Swinging Egg Ornaments: For an out-of-the-box decor idea that’s as fun as it is easy, string up a few blown-out eggs with baker’s twine in varying lengths for an easy DIY hanging decoration. If you’re running short on time, sub the blown eggs for plastic ones. (via Brit + Co)

3. DIY Easter Wreath: Bring the Easter festivities to your doorstep with an eye-catching DIY Easter egg wreath. Spray paint your wreath with a bright pop of color to keep it more modern than rustic, then glam up the overall look by spray painting your plastic eggs with a generous amount of metallic glitter.

4. DIY Egg Cups: Sure, these DIY egg cups are perfect for Easter, but they also work year-round as the cutest little additions to your table setting.

5. DIY Ombre Egg Centerpiece: Brighten up your table setting with an Easter egg-inspired centerpiece like this pun-tastic one. Choose to stick with “So Eggcited,” or come up with your own pun — either way, it’s sure to make your guests *crack* a smile ;) (via Brit + Co)

6. DIY Crepe Paper Flower Napkin Setting: If your place setting is looking a little bare, spruce it up with a crepe paper flower and Easter egg combo. For a more personal touch, write each one of your guests’ names onto each egg to double as a place card favor that they can take home. (via Brit + Co)
