These see-through Easter eggs are the perfect easy craft.

Just cut the letter that you want out of heavy construction paper and hot glue jelly beans over it.

Once it dries, just attach a large ribbon to the back with a hot glue gun and hang it on your door. BHG Easter Crafts

6. Easter Candlesticks

You can make these in a couple of different ways. You will need 3 wooden candlesticks and craft glue along with a variety of paints. Just paint the candlesticks however you want and the 3 wooden eggs as well. Attach them together with glue. If you prefer, you can simply add candles instead of the wooden eggs. Either way, these are perfect for decorating any room in the home. PaintMePlaid

7. Egg Candles

This is a bit of a different take on the Easter candlesticks. You will need several small plastic eggs, 2 small round wooden bases for each candlestick that you want to make, a dowel rod that can be cut into three different lengths, glue, a drill and some paint. Just drill a hole into the wooden bases and the plastic eggs. The dowel rod is used to hold the eggs on the bases. Just decorate the bases and eggs however you want and then glue everything together to ensure that it supports your candles. The length is entirely up to you and if you want a stunning centerpiece, create several different candlesticks of varying lengths. Jcsloft at CSI

8. Topiaries

These Easter topiaries are colorful and fun and they are very easy to create from jelly beans. You will need a small pot for each topiary that you want to make. Your local craft store should have these with faux plants in them. You will also need a dowel and a round Styrofoam ball for each one that you plan to make. Simply stick the dowel through the Styrofoam ball and into the pot. Then just glue the jellybeans on the round ball and decorate as you wish. Add florist foam to the pot to hold the dowel on that end and cover with plants, flowers or whatever you want. Crafty Sisters

9. Peeps Wreath

Just decorate the carton and you have a lovely and functional Easter craft. BHG Easter Crafts
