1. DIY Colorful Easter Buckets: Forget the baskets this year, and opt for something a little more sturdy, like an Easter day bucket full of goodies.

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 Ornamentss: 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.
