1. Decorate Easter eggs

Decorating eggs is a fun craft idea you can get the whole family involved with, so you can add a personal touch to your outdoor Easter decor.

“Painting eggs for Easter to keep in a basket is a great way to involve children in decorations and will allow you to have a whole basket of eggs for your egg hunt,” says Tommy Mello, design expert and founder of A1 Garage Door Service.

We like these Kafka Eggs from Amazon, which also come with eight pens for drawing on them.

If this is too time-consuming for you, Tommy also recommends decorating eggs with adorable washi tape (this CraftyCorgiHouse Bunny Tape from Etsy is very sweet), which will allow you to create stylish, striped eggs.

2. Hang pastel lights

Make the Easter bunny’s life a lot easier by hanging up the best outdoor lights as outdoor Easter decor, which will make placing down and finding eggs a breeze.

“Use strings of soft pastel lights to beautify plants and shrubs, lending a magical night-time radiance,” suggests Artem Kropovinsky, interior designer and founder of Arsight.

We like the idea of placing string lights (such as with these Turnmeon Easter Lights from Amazon) at various points in the backyard to signpost where Easter hunt clues may be.  

3. Add seasonal flowers

Inject color into your yard with one of the most timeless outdoor Easter decor ideas.

Artem explains, “Decorate outdoor areas with seasonal planters filled with spring blooms.”

He continues, “This will add interest to the area and add a natural touch to your Easter decor.”

Some of our favorite spring blooms include daffodils and tulips, but you could always go rogue with wildflower seeds, such as these The Old Farmer's Wildflower Seeds from Walmart.

All these would both look great in a pretty planter, such as this Threshold Checker Planter Pot from Target

4. Reach for wreaths

We haven’t forgotten spring porch ideas, which is a great place to show neighbors you’re into the Easter spirit.

“Set the stage for Easter festivities with a vibrant and inviting entryway display that welcomes guests with open arms,” suggests Nina Lichtenstein, principal designer and founder of Nina’s Home Design.

“Adorn your front door or fences with a festive Easter wreath featuring colorful eggs, spring florals, and cheerful ribbons,” she says.

You can go for traditional Easter wreath ideas such as eggs and pastel colors, or try something more vibrant such as this Preserved Kaleidoscope Wreath from Anthropologie

5. Create a bunny trail

Make your backyard an enchanting place for little ones to play by crafting a bunny trail adventure as part of your outdoor Easter decor.

“Create a whimsical bunny trail throughout your outdoor space with charming elements to enchant guests as they explore,” Nina says. “Place bunny-shaped lawn stakes along the pathway to lead them on a delightful journey through your yard.”

Colorful ones will look eye-catching and engaging, but we have our eyes on this Doesen Metal Bunny Decor from Amazon which is very striking.

6. Set up a pretty picnic

One of the best things about this holiday has to be eating chocolate, which is where a pretty Easter picnic table will come in handy.

Nina suggests, “Host a charming Easter picnic in your outdoor space with a beautifully styled tablescape that showcases the colors and textures of the season.”

She adds, “Dress up your picnic table with a crisp white tablecloth, pastel-colored or floral napkins (we like these Threshold Flower Cloth Napkins from Target), and floral centerpieces featuring spring blooms.”

Nina suggests setting out your picnic with a vintage-inspired picnic basket (how adorable is this Big Mo's Gingham Picnic Basket from Target?) for a cottagecore style finish.

7. Make flowerpots fabulous

Painting flowerpots with Easter patterns and motifs will transform them into sweet outdoor Easter decor.

“You could also decorate a white flower pot with cardstock bunny ears and a face drawn on with pink and black paint pens, finishing it off with a pom-pom tail,” suggests Tommy.

These Jeria Plant Pots from Amazon are the perfect blank canvas for your seasonal designs. Why not create a whole crafternoon designing these and the eggs? 

With these outdoor Easter decor ideas, you can create a backyard truly celebratory of the season. 

“Gather your favorite decor elements, unleash your creativity, and get ready to welcome the season in style,” Nina finishes by saying.

Carry on searching for cute pieces by shopping for Walmart Easter decor, which are some of the sweetest we’ve seen.
