Free Easter Graphics For Websites & DIY Crafts
Your Easter Project Inspiration Hub
I love the whole Easter aesthetic. Everything about it; the pastel colors, cute fuzzy bunnies and chicks, decorating eggs, you name it. Luckily I'm a toy store visual merchandiser by day, and this time of year I get to nerd out on Easter egg decorations, ridiculously soft plush chicks, Easter 2015 greeting cards, and that awesome translucent Easter grass.
Like seasonal window dressing, it's also fun to dress up the web with Easter decorations and create unique e-cards and emails for family. There are a lot of online databases out there with free seasonal graphics for non-commercial use, and many of them are out of copyright too (like the Victorian-era images in this hub). There's so much great stuff out there, and since I could curate all day, I compiled a hub of real stand-out Easter graphics to inspire your springtime projecst!
In This Hub:

- Free Easter Bunny Graphics
- Free Vintage Easter Greeting Cards

Easy Craft Projects You Can Do With Easter Clipart!
These images are ideal for personal use Easter projects like decoupaged Easter 2015 boxes, pendants, name cards, and gift tags. But what is "decoupage?" you ask? It's simply the art of gluing paper onto surfaces and covering it with varnish. It's a great Easter craft activity for the kids, plus professional artists and crafters love decoupage and have taken it to new heights with complex paper cuttings, layering, original printings, and additional mediums.
Easter Gift Tags
Many of the cute Easter ducks, fluffy Easter bunny images, and vintage Easter egg graphics in this Hub make fantastic templates for gift tags. Just follow these instructions for quick and easy gift tags!
- Make several color copies of your favorite images on quality paper and glue it onto blank white poster board. I prefer to use YES paste when I have it. It's much easier to smooth out air pockets, plus you can dilute with a little water to make a thinner adhesive that's perfect for decoupage. But glue sticks work well too.
- Once your images have dried to the poster board, cut them out and punch holes on top using a hole punch.
- Apply a thin layer of glossy varnish on top of the images. My favorite is Modge Podge. It's been around FOREVER and still has the same groovy 70's logo.
- While your gift tags are still wet, lightly sprinkle very small amounts of fine iridescent glitter
- Thread pastel yarn or ribbon through your dried gift tags and attach them to your gift baskets and Easter bunny plush!

Ideas For DIY Easter Greeting Cards
The above vintage images are a great solution for quick n' easy Easter 2015 greetings cards for family, friends, co-workers, invitations, and other special occasions.
- For best results, print your favorite images out on thicker, postcard quality paper.
- Use serrated craft scissors to make creative cuttings on the sides of your greeting cards. You can do this with regular scissors as well.
- You can also create charming little heart, bunny, and carrot cut-outs on your greetings cards with shape punchers.
- Remember to kick it up a notch! You can always slab on a thin layer of glossy Modge Podge varnish and add a splash of fine "fairy dust" glitter to your greetings cards for that extra-whimsical Easter vibe.
How to Make a Vintage-Style Easter Banner
- These vintage Easter images would also make a lovely banner for Easter morning!
- Adjust image sizes to make them smaller, print out multiples of your favorites, and cut them out.
- Using a hole puncher, punch at least 2-3 holes on top of each print-out.
- Using a thick string, yarn, or ribbon, thread your print-outs together to create a simple and lovely vintage-style Easter banner!
