17 Easter Clip-Art and Templates for All of Your Crafts

decorating Easter eggs with clip-art

Easter morning is a special time of year for decorating, gift baskets, and crafts with kids and the whole family—even if Easter will be celebrated a little differently this year. The traditional egg hunts and Sunday brunches may be things that you forgo due to social distancing, but that doesn't mean you can't make Easter special for your family at home. To that end, we've made sure to provide all of the artwork you need to complete each of the projects seen in these slides, all in one place. Here, you'll find our clip art ready to download, print, and cut out. Additionally, all you need is craft paper and a pair of scissors to try them yourself.

Set the table with custom place settings that include named place cards, gifted favors, and decorative centerpieces. You can print out a flock of themed decorations: a Mother hen at the middle of the table and chicks at every place setting or trace and cut a garland of rabbits that appear to hippity-hop across the table. And what child wouldn't love the surprise of an Easter basket on Sunday morning? Stuff them crepe paper carrots and bunnies that unravel to reveal small trinkets, then tie it off with a custom name tag. Amid social distancing, Easter cards and invitations are made all the more cheerful with our clip-art designs like blooming flowers or a hatching chick—even if you're just inviting loved ones to a virtual gathering, these motifs will delight. When you can click "print," all of these projects work well as a last-minute idea, too.

Just in time for April, print out our templates and craft the most memorable decorations to display year after year.

Made of wrapped paper streamers, these adorable little bundles are a twist on the crepe-paper surprise ball. As you unwind the paper, you find the trinkets—jewelry, a novelty, a toy.

Crepe Paper Rose Bucket

Johnny Miller

A frilly alternative to a traditional Easter basket, this rose has humble beginnings: Beneath the folds of pink crepe paper is a plastic bucket meant for mixing paint. Tip: Measure depth and circumference of tub and cut piece of pink paper (along the grain) so, when folded, it lines the inside, outside, and bottom of bucket.

Crepe Paper Bunny

This is far from a hare-brained scheme for party favors: As kids unravel the tightly wound crepe paper strips, they reveal several little trinkets and presents. Snip away the center of a cupcake liner so head nestles in it and cut the fluted part to create a collar.

Inexpensive baskets are adorned with clip-art tags for kids to write their names on, so there are no mix-ups at your Easter egg hunt. Print them onto card stock, and cut out. Punch a hole at the top, and thread with string or ribbon. Use open space to write a name on each.

Beanbag Chicks

Hatch beanbag chicks inside plastic eggs with our template, felt, and yellow split peas. Start by cutting fabric rectangles larger than the egg template: you'll need two felt pieces, or two colored cotton and two white cotton pieces. Stack the pieces, trace the template, and stitch 1/2 inch inside the line, leaving a small opening at one end. Use a funnel to fill the shape with split peas. Stitch the opening closed. Trim along the line using pinking shears. Lastly, personalize your chicks with a beak, wings, and a pair of eyes.

Paper Bunny Box

Simply pack this charming bunny box with cookies or candy for a one-of-a-kind Easter gift. (Since the template is 18 inches by 18 inches when enlarged, you will have to print or copy the template in pieces, on a few sheets of paper, and tape it together.) Once you have assembled the template, cut it out on the solid lines using a craft knife. Remember to also cut out the slots in the large tabs.
