We wanted to keep the cost down with this decoration, seeing as half of it cannot be reused next year, so it is considered a dollar store craft!  A clear cylinder vase, two cute ceramic bunnies, glass jars of different sizes, some pretty pink flowers and candy can create all three of these Easter centrepiece decoration ideas. Keep in mind, the items you find don’t have to be the same, as long as the idea is the same.

DIY Easter Decorating Ideas – Using Candy!

What do you need for a DIY Easter decoration?

  • Glass cylinder vase
  • Small decorative jar
  • Mason jar
  • Artificial flowers
  • Ceramic bunnies
  • Candy of your choice (we used Easter coloured jelly eggs)


Each decorating idea is very simple to accomplish so it’s easy to do more then just one. Simply arrange the candy inside of the jar as you see fit and add elements to the top, side and middle!  Firstly, we used a ceramic bunny in the tall cylindrical vase. For another jar, we placed the flowers in a mason jar.


The small decorative jar is perfect for the smaller beans. To create a carrot appearance add some orange beans first then add some green ones, next pop one of the ceramic bunnies next to it to add to scene! Finally, arrange the jars and vases together or on separate tables. These will be very cute conversational pieces for the Easter season, right threw to the festive dinner.
