Creative Easter Decorations
by Dian Thomas

If you are looking for creative Easter decorations, go no farther than your bathroom to find some of the materials you’ll need. Toilet paper in pastel colors comes in handy to make bunnies, ducks and chicks.


You’ll need:

  • 1 roll bathroom tissue for each bunny, duck, or chick

  • magic markers (to draw faces)

  • orange construction paper (duck and chick)

  • pink construction paper (bunny)

  • 1 (1-1/2’) pom-pom (bunny tail)

  • white acrylic paint

  • sponge to apply paint

  • miniature flowers, pom-poms, and ribbon

  • straw hat for the duck

  • glue gun

  • Easter grass and candies

Draw faces on each roll of tissue. Cut the duck or chick beak and feet from orange construction paper. Cut ears and feet for bunny from pink construction paper. Glue ears onto bunny by spreading the paper enough to snug ears in place. Glue beaks and feet in place.

Sponge paint onto feet and ears of bunny to create the appearance of fur. Push Easter grass and candies in the tube. Decorate with small flowers or pom-poms, a tied ribbon at the neck, and a hat for the duck.
