Pine Cone Flowers
Dress up your dining table with a centerpiece bowl full of these pine cone flowers. Let the kids help collect pine cones from the yard (or order a bundle online), and spray paint them in a variety of colors. Use acrylic paint in a contrasting color to add a center for each flower.

Egg Carton Flowers
Kids will love helping you make these flowers that last forever, no water needed. Cut an egg carton into groups of four cups, rounding the edges with scissors to make petals. Use acrylic paint or spray paint to paint each flower in bright springtime colors. Then, use a glue gun to attach decorative buttons to the center of the flower, and a paper straw to the back of the flower to make a stem.
Cork Heart Wreath
This wreath will bring spring cheer adorning a window or door. Draw a heart on a piece of paper, and then arrange the corks on the heart. Dip the end of each cork in acrylic paint, creating a colorful pattern, then let dry. Use a hot glue gun to glue the corks together, following the heart stencil as you go. Once the glue is dry, flip over the entire wreath and add more hot glue to the back to add stability. The finishing touch is a cute ribbon to hang. These DIY Easter wreaths will brighten your home, too.
Pom Pom Branches
These whimsical branches are sure to put anyone in a cheerful springtime mood. You can purchase faux sticks or have the kids gather a few real ones from your own yard. Using a hot glue gun, attach wool pom poms to the branches, and place in a vase. Check out our other ideas for DIY table centerpieces.
Send someone a happy note with these springtime cards. Start with a blank card, or make your own with card stock. Then decorate the cards with washi tape. You can do simple stripes, or use a stencil to create patterned birds and flowers. Your kids will love the chance to send a handmade note to friends or grandparents!
Butterfly Wall Hanging
To make this butterfly wall hanging, find a butterfly stencil online and print it in two sizes. Use the stencils to trace butterflies onto different scrapbook papers. Fold all the butterflies vertically along the body, then stack the smaller butterflies atop the larger butterflies and secure with glue. You can create cute little antennae out of wax cotton cord, glued to the back of the butterfly head. Use twine to hang the butterflies in lines of three.
Paper Cone Wreath
Welcome guests with this beautiful wreath on the door. Start by cutting three colors of pink card stock paper into 4-inch squares. Then cut two lighter pink card stock papers into 3-inch squares. Roll all the squares into cones and secure with glue. Next, cut out a 10-inch circle of cardboard and trace an 8-inch circle on the cardboard with a pen to create a guide.
Now it’s time to glue, glue, glue! Start with the bigger and darker cones, and work your way to the smaller and lighter cones. Glue each cone tip to the 8-inch circle, then start the next layer gluing the tips in between the tips of the first layer. Repeat each layer until you’ve filled the wreath.
