The colours are popping this spring, especially with the coming of Easter. We’ve already made it through most of March, St-Patty’s Day behind us, and now it’s time to decorate for Easter. Don’t sweat it, these 14 Easter decorating ideas will take the hard work out of your decorating time. They’re money-conscious, multipurpose ideas that you can be transformed to serve other purposes later.
Easter Decorating Ideas
The good thing about these ideas is that some can be easily DIY’d. You know how much I LOOOOVE easy DIY! And whenever I can, I include it DIY ideas.
This egg wreath idea comes from A Pumpkin and a Princess. It’s pretty simple to make, follow her tutorial and the following supplies to make the magic happen:
- Grapevine wreath
- Plastic coloured eggs, or painted natural ones
- Artificial flowers stems, you can also go for natural ones but they will be pricier
- Hot glue
Such an original Easter decorating idea from God Father Style! I would have never thought of it and it’s so simple. Add the artificial tulips (you can go with natural ones) into the umbrella, tie it with a ribbon, and voilà!
Centrepieces & Table Settings
Brought to you by Martha Stewart, these moth covered eggs on a twig are an exceptional table centrepiece that will surely put everyone in awe:
- Sheet moss
- Plastic clamshell egg mold #E151, #E15, #E153
- Rubber bands
- Floral wire, 24 gauge
- Wire cutters
Flowers & Eggs Reclaimed Wood Planter Box
Reclaimed wood pieces can be expensive, but luckily Amazon has some great deals on some that would be perfect for this project from:
- Artificial flowers
- Plastic or natural hardboiled eggs
- Foam blocks in the planter to stabilize the decor (use soil if you choose to go with natural flowers)
- Reclaimed wood planter box
If you’re not a fan of reclaimed woods, ceramic planters can work too.
Porch & Yard Decor
A few old crates, a wheel barrel and old moss covered basket with colourful eggs can make for an inviting farmhouse-style porch. It might not be part of your local store buys, you may find around the neighbourhood, in yard or vintage sales, or from a farm.
Tulip Planters & Bunny Statues
This set up found on God Father Style might require a little bit more coordinating but it’s completely doable. It would be ideal to create your wreath from artificial flowers than find natural flowers to match to put into the planter:
- Grapevine wreath
- Artificial tulips
- Artificial leaves
- Natural tulips
- Decorative bird cages
- Assorted antique brass bunnies
Mantles are not reserved for Christmas decor only, they really serve as a great focal piece in a home for any occasion. I know for Valentine’s Day, I decorated my mantle and I think doing it for Easter just as our gal over at Adventures in Decorating did is a fantastic idea.
- Egg wreath (see above)
- 2 natural or artificial floral bouquets
- 2 tall vases
- Some candles and candelabras
- A few decorative bunnies
- Spring banner
- Plastic coloured eggs or natural hardboiled eggs
Hanging flower pots with some vintage items will give your home the French Provincial look we all drool over from House & Home. Vibeke Design has gotten this concept right quite a few time:
- Distressed flower pot
- Distressed pitcher
- Natural or artificial floral bouquets
If pots and pitchers aren’t your thing, re-adapt with blowing glass bottles instead.
Glam Glittery Table
Bling is always fun, even for Easter decorating ideas. This Pottery Barn snapshot taken from Home Bunch depicts a super glam Easter setting that seems fitting for Beyoncé:
- Easter banner
- Glass vases
- Glittery candles
- Glittery eggs
- Ceramic bunnies
- Ombre candelabras
- Artificial floral bouquets
- Bling candle holders
- Sheet moss
Easy DIY Ideas
Pretty easy and straightforward, this Easter decorating idea from Vibeke Design is a no-brainer to create. Either pick up fresh tulips or go for artificial ones, dump them in a distressed bucket and place it in a prominent are and Bob’s your uncle!
Painted Eggs Nest
May look complicated but it is likely the easiest, kid-friendly idea you can DIY this Easter. Using real eggs to make a colourful Easter birds originated in Germany. While that may make you think the process is just as difficult as the German language, fear not, as it’s actually quite simple. Follow Honestly Yum’s steps to get it right:
- 12 white hard boiled eggs
- 1 head of red cabbage
- 4 teaspoons of white vinegar
- Edible metallic gold paint
- Thick bristle paintbrush or old toothbrush
Mason jar DIY painting is a must for every holiday. Almost every festivity has a mason jar theme that pops up on Pinterest. Easter decorating ideas are no exception when it comes of the incorporation of mason jars. That’s why I thought the Mason Jar Craft Love would have the perfect ones to showcase for Easter:
The Gist of it
Easter decorating ideas doesn’t have to be elaborate, expensive or daunting. A few fake flowers, some DIY painted eggs or plastic ones (if you couldn’t be bothered), grapevine wreath and some cute bunnies will set your house up for the best Easter egg hunt the kids will ever experience. What are your Easter decoration ideas?
