I have been raiding my craft supplies for the last few weeks, trying to create (which is my outlet!) without jetting off to the stores in search of supplies. It’s actually been fun…being creative with what I already have! I’ve been calling them “quarantine projects”, but I’m actually gonna start making it a regular thing! I never realized I had so many unused craft supplies!
With Easter right around the corner, I put together two easy Dollar Tree Easter crafts using stuff that you could find at Dollar Tree….but that you most likely already have at home (especially if you’re an avid crafter/DIYer).

Dollar Tree Crafts: DIY Bunny Banner
This DIY bunny banner is so fun you guys! I have a 45-second tutorial below, but there are so many variations you could do with this! I used brown paper lunch bags, white yarn, and my favorite pom pom maker from Amazon to make the bunny tails.
If you don’t have brown paper lunch bags, try using kraft paper, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, etc. And for the tails: y’all know I love making pom poms (it’s just so easy with this little guy!), but you could easily stick a cotton ball on there instead!
Here is the template I used. Just right-click, save, resize to your liking, and print! Fun!
Dollar Tree DIY Egg Garland
Ok y’all, this one is my favorite. I absolutely love how it turned out! I gave a little explanation on how I made this over on my Instagram stories (you can find it here…and I’d love for you to follow along while you’re there!), but it’s pretty self-explanatory!
You’ll need plastic Easter eggs, white paint (spray paint or chalk paint), a black marker, and some string/twine. I also had some wooden beads (I keep this big pack from Amazon on hand because they’re good for soooo many projects!) that I spray painted black and placed between each egg…but that’s totally optional!
*It’s important to note that my plastic eggs already had holes in each end. Do they all come like that?? I’m not sure. If not, you’ll want to use something to poke a hole at each end so you can string some twine through during the last step.
- I painted my eggs white, which honestly wasn’t the easiest thing in the world because eggs roll….and that means you have to do it in stages. BUT, I mean….we’ve got nothing but time right now, right? I later found that Walmart sells white plastic eggs….which I wish I would have known because it would have eliminated that whole step.
- After your paint is dry (or if you got smart and just got white eggs), draw various designs on your Easter eggs with your marker! This part was so fun!
- String your twine through the ends of the eggs, hang, and enjoy!

I mentioned that I loved my pom pom maker, because it makes making pom poms sooooooo easy! Here are a couple of posts that feature other ways I’ve used pom poms (as well as a tutorial).
