There are many ways to make Easter decor, but using reclaimed wood is fast, cheap, and can maybe even clear out some space in your garage. The entire ideas revolves around how much free wood you have on hand, and what your carpentry skills look like.

- Gather spare wood to reclaim
- Fashion into bunny form
- Does it look like a bunny?
- If yes, paint it white or tan
- If no, paint a bunny on it
- Decorate creatively
Deviled Egg Chicks
“Easter eggs are probably the weirdest part about this great holiday. Rabbits laying eggs and then children run around finding them and eating them thinking that they are chocolate.” - Anonymous

Tie Dye Easter Eggs
It’s spring, so that means it’s time to experiment with brand new DIY activities! For a new family tradition that’s “far out,” try vibrant tie dying the easter eggs this year.
