Easter is one of my favorite holidays! Sometimes the stress of holidays, and the need to be “Pinterest Perfect” can be tough. We’re here to the rescue! We’ve come up with five things you can use to celebrate and decorate for Easter, without taking a ton of time on projects, or needing a lot of skill. Having cute stuff doesn’t need to take all day, and doesn’t require a degree in design! Use some of these tips to make Easter just a bit easier for you this year.
These adorable Easter Cinnamon Rolls are easy peasy. All over Pinterest I’ve been seeing Bunny Shaped Cinnamon Rolls, and really, who has time for that? So, instead of twisting your cinnamon rolls into animal shapes, we’re gonna make it simple. Simply cook your store bought cinnamon rolls like usual. Before they come out of the oven, simply spoon the pre-made icing that comes with them into three separate bowls.
Add ONE drop of food coloring (to give it the pastel color) to each bowl, and stir. Then drizzle onto the cinnamon rolls like you normally would. If you have some cute sprinkles on hand to make them even cuter, you can add them too! See? Easy peasy!
There’s no need to use fancy icing techniques for these adorable Bunny Cupcakes! We used a fun Spring Cake Mix to make the cupcakes, cute Easter cupcake liners (found in the Easter aisle at Walmart for $0.98), pre-dyed green icing from the cake aisle, some cute Easter Sprinkles and a package of marshmallow bunnies. Ice the cupcakes, plop the bunny on and add the sprinkles. Done and done.
How adorable are these?! THis is a super simple way to decorate for Easter, without needing to do any crafts at all. Simply find some empty jars laying around (or snag a few at the Dollar Tree, that’s what we did), stick some Easter grass in the bottom, and fill with plastic eggd, Simple, quick, and pretty enough for the mantle!
The next Easter hack is FUN! It’s a fun twist on dying eggs. Instead of dipping the eggs in liquid dye, and having them stay there (which we all know little hands have a hard time doing), you can try this method; rice dyed eggs! Take about a cup of rice, put it in a medium size tupperware, or bowl with lid, add about 15 drops of food coloring, nestle the egg on top, put the lid on the container and shake! Shake until the egg is the desired color (doesn’t take any longer than a couple of minutes.) To do more eggs the same color, simply add 5-7 more drops of food coloring for each additional egg. I love the textured look of these eggs! And fun for kids without liquid dye!
This Easter hack is one of my favorites: Tattoo Eggs! It’s seriously as simple as boiling eggs, letting them cool, and then applying temporary tattoos to the eggs as you would your skin. This is a great option if you have little kids, and don’t want their fingers dyed funny colors before Easter morning for Church. The options are endless! You can even have each kid choose a character, and then on Easter, they only hunt the eggs that have their character on the eggs!
