Crafting and Gift Ideas for Easter with Instructions and Templates
For many families the Easter holidays herald the beginning of springtime. Lent is over, nature is starting to bloom and the time is ideal for a cozy brunch within the family circle.

DIY Table Décor for Your Easter Brunch
Pussy Willow with Easter Egg Ornaments
A bouquet of pussy willow with Easter decoration creates that spring ambience you’re looking for. Combine it with your favourite memories to add a personal touch.
You will need:
- A bouquet of pussy willow
- Photos of your family
- Scissors and glue
- Needle and thread
For the ornaments, cut the photos of your loved ones into the shapes of Easter eggs. Glue each egg to the backs of one another so each egg has a picture on either side. Using a needle, carefully poke a hole in the egg and pull the thread through. Knot both ends of the thread together and hang it on your pussy willow bouquet.
Drinks with Bunny Ears
Serve your loved ones a cool refreshment in a bottle or glass—with bunny ears! Whether fresh-pressed orange juice, a milkshake, or lemonade, the bunny ears will especially delight children and are easily crafted.
You will need the following materials:
- Sugar paper in two colours
- Glass or bottle
Cut your bunny ears from the sugar paper. You can use two different colours for the ears or use the lighter colour for the inside. Cut a small slit in the bottom of the paper so you can stick the ears on the bottle. You can also decorate the bottle with colourful ribbon.
Photo flip with Menu Cards, an Easter Poem, and Colouring Picture
A Photo flip is a great decorative note for your Easter table. With menu, photos, puzzles, poetry, and pictures for children to colour, it will serve as excellent entertainment during your brunch.
Easily design and order your Photo flip online here. You can choose between portrait or landscape formatting, upload your photos, and design your very own, personalised Photo flip in a few clicks—just in time for Easter Brunch.

Greeting Cards with Crafting Instructions
Whether a name card or greeting card with a personal inscription, a Maxicard (order it here) with crafting instructions for an Easter lamb is a cheerful décor idea and a charming gift for your kids. You can also mail a card to your loved ones.
Individually-Decorated Easter Baggies
Surprise your family with an Easter bag made by yours truly. This DIY-baggie made from a brown paper bag can be lovingly designed and filled with treats.
You will need:
- A brown paper bag
- Scissors and glue
- Gift ribbons

To create a nifty bunny-ears shape, cut the opening so a pair of ears emerges from the bag. Now you can fill the bag with tiny surprises: various sweets, self-baked cookies, and colourful Easter eggs. Tie your bag together with the ribbon, and the little favour for your Easter brunch is ready!
A Photo Mug Gift for Your Host This Easter
A lovely table decorated with hand-made Easter decorations adorned with a feast of tasty treats - your hosts for this year’s family Easter celebration definitely deserve a bit of attention themselves! You can create your own individualised gift for your host in the blink of an eye by designing a photo mug from ifolor - personalise it with a funny, modern, or traditional touch or even with your own photos.
Hold on to Family Easter Traditions in the Form of Photos
Easter is a time for being with family. While searching for colourful eggs on Easter Sunday may be a tradition for most families in Switzerland with children, there are many other Easter traditions that vary from canton to canton. Then there are the family-specific traditions, like going on an Easter stroll, eating certain foods, or playing games. Easter is another occasion where many photos are taken once the family is all together. Let yourself be inspired and do something different this year by creating your own small Easter photo book for the whole family.
