DIY Easter Bunny Napkins
Perfect for Easter brunch or an evening feast! All you need are some napkins and Easter eggs and in no time at all you can create a great (and practical) decoration for Easter. You will need:
- Square cloth napkins
- One string per napkin
- One Easter egg per napkin
- Optional: some short shrubs of dried flowers as decoration
Unfold the napkin and place one tip in front of you. Fold the napkin once in the middle to make a triangle. Fold the napkin again from down to top and repeat the step until you only have a thin strip in front of you. Place the Easter egg in the centre and lift both ends of the napkin upwards - these are the ears of your bunny! Wrap a string directly above the "head" of the egg to tie the napkin ears. Your Easter bunny napkin is done!
Step-by-step tutorial for the napkins
Of course, the napkins can be used to hold both "real" Easter eggs to eat or decorative eggs. If you like, you can now add some dried flowers (or fresh ones if you prefer) between the ears to create some more spring vibes. Place your napkins directly on the plate or spread them out in the middle of the centre of the table and you've created a super cute table decoration for the Eater holidays!

Easter eggs with line art
A popular trend in Easter egg painting are drawings in line art style. They make the eggs look like little works of art, and it doesn't take much effort! You will need:
- Eggs (either decorative or boiled ones).
- Some acrylic paint & brushes
- A sharpie
You can choose the colour according to your personal taste. From pastel spring colours to bold opaque colours, anything goes. As background for your Line arts, choose a shade and paint a circle, oval or other shape on your egg. Let the paint dry and grab your sharpie next. Black is a common colour for line art, but of course you can use a colour that suits you best. With the sharpie, draw simple patterns, such as small branches with leaves, delicate flowers or abstract faces. There should not be too many details in order to create a rather minimalist appearance. And with that, your trendy Easter eggs are done!

An Easter bunny as a gift bag
If you have prepared a small gift for Easter, how about wrapping it into a gift bag shaped like a bunny? This idea is also easy to recreate and will bring a lot of joy when gifting and unwrapping. You will need:
- Brown wrapping paper
- A pair of scissors
- A pen
- A ribbon or string
- Glue stick & tape
- Optional: cotton ball
Cut the paper into a rectangular shape and lay it out in front of you. Fold one long side into the middle of the paper and use the glue stick to spread a strip of glue along the edge. Fold the opposite side of the paper onto the strip of glue and press the paper together to make sure it holds well. Now fold the bottom end of the paper about a quarter of the way up. Press on the inside to make a square. Fold the top and bottom edges of the square into the middle and hold them in place with some tape. Now you have the rough packaging! Next, draw the bunny ears on the top end of the paper with a pencil and cut off the area between the ears. Your Easter bag is ready!

You can now leave the front and back as they are or decorate them, e.g. with a painted bunny face or the cotton ball as a tail. If your happy with your bunny, pull the bag open by the ears and hide your gift, such as some Easter chocolate, a postcard, magnets or other little things, inside. As soon as your gift bag is filled, you can tie it together at the ears with a ribbon. Your bunny bag is complete!
