To make this tower of treats, tape cut-to-fit craft paper around two empty 32-ounce yogurt cartons. Hot-glue an upside-down carton inside a large orchard basket, then glue a medium basket on top. Repeat with other carton and small basket. Fill with faux grass and goodies.

This cheeky DIY — spelling out “Spring” on eggs atop actual springs — is a silly and fun way to bring Easter cheer to your home. Using robin’s egg colored paint invokes the sense of nature coming alive after a long winter.
A woodsy vase echoes these flowers’ country-garden vibe. For the container, cut 30 to 40 twigs to the height of a glass vase, then lightly hot-glue them to its surface, a few inches at a time. Finish with jute twine tied in a bow. For the flowers, bundle the hydrangeas first, then insert Queen Anne’s lace. Keep fresh by misting.
Showcase DIY speckled eggs in a nest of wheatgrass. First, dye hard-cooked eggs in pastel shades (or paint craft eggs). Then make flecks: Dilute brown acrylic paint with water until it’s the consistency of cream. Dip an old toothbrush into the paint and, with the brush a few inches from the egg, run your finger across the bristles, splattering paint onto the shell (lay egg horizontally, splatter, let dry, rotate, and repeat).
Turn the incredible edible into a darling bud vase. Chip an opening at one end of the egg, empty it out, and secure the shell to a mirror with candle wax. Fill the shell with water and place a fresh flower inside.
