Favourite Easter craft activities to try by Zoe Gilpin (@thediydecorator)

DIY Easter Hat

What you need:

  • Super Glue Gel
  • Clear Glue Minis
  • Straw hat (or similar)
  • Decorative coloured rope
  • Various Easter themed decorations
  • Assorted faux floral foliage
  • Optional: Spray paint to prime and change the hat colour

Activity steps:

  1. Start by wrapping the decorative rope around the hat and securing with Super Glue Gel
  2. Once dry, start adding on decorative pieces. Start by adding larger pieces first, followed by smaller pieces and then fill your gaps with the foliage and floral pieces
  3. Attach the decorations using Clear Glue Minis
  4. Layer your decorative items around the brim of the hat
  5. Consider adding in fun items such as battery-operated string lights or even gluing some hanging plastic egg decorations from the edge of the brim

Tip: You can use any shape/size/coloured hat you like for this project. If you couldn’t find the colour you were after, spraying the hat with a few coats of a primer/paint in one spray paint can help solve this problem!

DIY Easter Basket

What you need:

  • Glue Spray Adhesive
  • Glue Clear Grip
  • Assorted baskets
  • Decorative coloured rope
  • Various Easter themed decorations
  • Assorted faux floral and foliage
  • Decorative shredded paper

Activity steps:

  1. Give the inside of your basket a generous coat of Glue Spray Adhesive. Allow it to get tacky and then add in your shredded paper. This will help keep it in place.
  2. Using Glue Clear Grip, add on the chosen decorations to the basket.
  3. Add rope to the handle, Easter themed decorations and foliage around the rim or outside of the basket.close-view-easter-basket-small
  4. Build up layers by adding larger decorations followed by smaller ones, finishing with foliage. Faux is a great option for this project but you could also use dried florals as well.

Tip: Picking up some super cheap baskets for just a few dollars each from a second-hand store works great for this project and keeps it inexpensive! Use any size, shape, style of basket you can get your hands on.
