With the spring season comes Easter, another time to get creative with your home decorating. Traditionally, pastels and bunnies are the trend, but that doesn’t have to be the case anymore. There are plenty of other ways to incorporate the holiday into your home. Here are four simple suggestions that will hopefully get those creative juices flowing before the holiday arrives.
Add Flair With a Wreath
Adding a wreath to your door, or even to a wall within the house, is an easy and fun way to decorate for the holiday. A wide variety of materials can be used to create your Easter wreath including, but not limited to, yarn, flowers, eggs, greenery, ribbon, fabric, branches, tissue paper, and of course artificial bunnies and chicks. For inspiration, check out websites like Pinterest.
Make Accents Out of Crepe Paper
Crepe paper can make really cute accents that will look great around the house. One idea is a basket full of crepe paper carrots. Another idea is making a crepe paper rose basket to fill with candy. If you’ll have kids around, hide little presents inside crepe paper surprise bunnies. These are just a few of the ways crepe paper can be used to make accents for your Easter celebration.
Design a Colorful Garland
Colorful garlands are just as easy, if not easier, to make than a decorative wreath. You can string up just about anything Easter related, and you’ve got yourself a garland. One design that will look great is the oh-so-popular colored egg garland. While this one is a little more extensive, it will be something amazing you can hang up year after year. If you are short on time however, there are more simple designs such as egg or bunny shapes cut from colorful paint samples or just simply stringing up plastic eggs or flowers.
Have Fun Decorating With Fabric
Fabric is a great way to incorporate holiday themes into the home. One way in which fabric can be used is by recovering your old throw pillows or creating new ones. Many fabric suppliers also carry pillow forms, which makes it easy to get exactly what you want. Another option is to create your own tablecloth, table runner or placemats.
