What to Make This Weekend: Burger Easter Eggs, Dip Dye Ombre Dress + More
Easter is this Sunday and we’re packing every pastel-dipped, chocolate-filled treat into the weekend that’s physically possible. In the same boat? We thought so! Whether you’re going all out with an Easter brunch or just stocking a couple of Easter baskets for the kids, now is the perfect chance to take advantage of warmer weather *and* get crafty. Scroll down for a few last-minute Easter ideas, some chic spring wardrobe upgrades and enough sugary, chocolatey deliciousness to satisfy even the biggest sweetest tooth.
1. DIY Dip Dye Ombre Dress: Warm weather means goodbye pants, and hello flirty little sundresses. Ombre is still one of the coolest ways to add a little color to your spring wardrobe, and you can personalize the color to your exact favorite shade. Go for a long flowy maxi dress or split up the look with a two-piece set. (via Brit + Co)
2. DIY Terrazzo Tile Inspired Planter: The best part about a terrazzo pattern is that you can personalize the look. If you’re a minimalist-lover, stick with a monochromatic color palette or go for a more preppy-chic look, and layer on the hot pinks and yellows. There’s no way you can get this pattern wrong, and it’s a great way to brighten up old planters. (via Enthralling Gumption)
3. DIY Anthro-Inspired Wall Art: All you need is paint, a paintbrush and a canvas for your masterpiece. Believe it or not, it’ll look like a million bucks (or at least Anthro’s suggested price of $3600) when you’re done. Pro tip: The trick to hacking abstract wall art is layers, and since acrylic paint only takes about five minutes to dry, you’ll have your masterpiece up on your wall in no time. (via Brit + Co)
4. DIY Fried Egg Felt Zipper Pouch: You can’t go wrong with a food-themed fashion accessory. If you’re new to sewing, this felt project is perfect because you don’t have to worry about finished edges or seams. The mini bacon zipper pull just takes this breakfast-inspired pouch to a whole new level of cuteness. (via Damask Love)
5. DIY Galaxy Egg: Take a break from the usual pastel-colored eggs, and take your egg-decorating game to the stars. DIY a galaxy look using dark hues of navy, purple and black and then sponging on splashes of gold and white. You can also use a toothbrush to splatter white paint “stars” onto the eggs.

6. DIY Stenciled Spring Banner: Nothing says, “Hello, spring” like a new piece of typography art. This stencil project is a great craft night project for the kiddos, and you’ll only need a few supplies, making cleanup easy peasy. (via The Pretty Life Girls)
7. DIY Watercolor-Inspired Diamond Piñata: If you really want to have a fun activity at your wedding, you obviously need a piñata, and this watercolor-inspired version is just the DIY for you. Fill it with treats and favors, and let your guests take their best shot. (via Brit + Co)
8. DIY Painted Polka Dot Sneakers: It’s *finally* warm enough to stop wearing your boots and bring out the sandals and colorful sneakers. Make your sneakers match your new sundress with a polka dot pattern. To get the look, just use an eraser to create the perfect circle — and then, get ready to do a lot of Instagram shots on pretty floors. (via Dream Green DIY)
9. DIY Emoji Cookies: Add some emoji joy to your Easter baskets with these adorable cookies. If you don’t want to mess with royal icing, try this fondant frosting technique, and let your inner artist bloom with icing details. (via Brit + Co)
11. DIY Peeps Skillet Dip: What do you get when you combine every sugary, chocolatey, marshmallowy craving you’ve ever had? This skillet dip. Layer chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and rainbow peeps, pop in the oven for a couple of minutes and have vanilla wafers + animal crackers at the ready for dipping. (via Brit + Co)
12. DIY Alphabet Easter Eggs: These quick + easy typography Easter Eggs will make a big impact with minimal mess. All you need is letter stickers and spray paint (no dye here!) to make a whole slew of catchy Easter puns. (via Lovely Indeed)
13. DIY Anthro Purse Hack: What to do when your dream purse is just out of your price range? DIY your own, of course. Get the same look of Anthro’s leather and suede tote with this sewing project. Personalize the size to get it just right, and add a cinch to make sure nothing valuable falls out. (via Brit + Co)
