The jury is out over whether Pinterest has enhanced the holidays for hosts or just added to the seasonal stress of striving for perfection, but either way it's easier than ever to find inspiration (and a DIY tutorial) for any of your holiday planning needs — like these 18 Easter egg designs, all of which can be done in a day with simple tools and some leftover craft materials.


Favorites of bloggers and editors who frequent Pinterest, these nine designs incorporate a current, contemporary design aesthetic with basic arts & crafts materials that even an amateur maker would have on hand (or can easily purchase locally).
