You may not think of IKEA for Easter decorations but they are a great resource for making your own Easter decor, crafts and gifts. So let’s nibble on the flatpack IKEA Easter Chocolate Bunny and hack away.
DIY Cute Easter Diorama
Thinking of Easter presents? Break away from the usual Easter eggs and gift a cute Easter diorama instead. I added nice papers and printed words to the containers; also artificial grass, ribbon and a cute chicken. So the magnetic containers became unique Easter presents.
I went for a more “natural” theme and used mainly flowers, grass and a tiny chick. But it’s really up to you. Be creative and decorate with things that represent re-birth and newness.
1. Cut a piece of floral foam and fit it inside the cup. 2. Heat the bottom of the candle and glue it with wax on to the foam 3. Add moss on top and eggs. 4. Make a few more (you can also use different mugs for variety) and set it on your Easter table as a centerpiece.

Bunny Jar Topper
Nadia used the IKEA BURKEN jars and toy resin rabbits to make this set of bunny jars. Great for storing sweet treats during Easter or anytime of the year. You’ll need to first remove the handle on top of the lid and glue the toy rabbit on to it. The spray paint the jar and bunny in the color of your choice. Let dry and it’s done. See the bunny jar topper tutorial.
Easter mobile in an IKEA crate
Found this image on Pinterest with no instructions are link to the original source. But it looks easy enough to re-create. Paint a few Easter eggs and hang them with clear fishing wire from the top of the KNAGGLIG crate. Add a few more decorations at the bottom as needed.
