Not everyone celebrates the religious traditions that surround the Easter holidays, but that doesn't mean you can't get involved in some fun and crafty activities, and enjoy your fair share of chocolate.

This year we've got some cute and fun ideas for you to try, either for yourself or with the kids. So, what are you waiting for? Grab that hot glue gun and let's get started!

First we have a framed Easter button art. I love this idea because once you get the hang of it you can adapt it for any occasion.

For this activity you'll need:

  • 8.5 x 11 piece of white cardstock
  • printable egg pattern
  • various sizes of coloured buttons
  • hot glue
  • old toothbrush
  • 8 x 10 picture or photo frame

For step by step instructions head to acultivatednest.com.

Now wait there, how cute are these Easter candy jars?! Even if you don't want to fill them with candy you can just use them for something else—if I was a kid again I'm pretty sure I'd love one of these to store my secret treasures in.

For this activity you'll need:

  • small jars (any size or kind)
  • decoupage
  • paint brush
  • fine glitter
  • craft foam or construction paper in pink, white, and orange
  • candy
  • pompoms
  • googly eyes
  • hot glue

Head to crazylittleprojects.com for the tutorial.

And finally, these eggshell planters would make a great gift idea or addition to your home—no matter what the time of year.

To create these beauties all you'll need is some eggshells, succulents, moss, flowers—whatever you like really! Raid your garden or hit the local nursery and get those hands dirty.
