Easter decorations are always fun, but if you’re feeling especially creative this year, you’ll enjoy dabbling in some new decor. Even better, you can make these beautiful decorations unique by putting your own personal spin on them! So, let’s take a look at some chic Easter decor that you should try out this year.
#1: A kitchen table centerpiece with colored eggs
There are so many different types of Easter centerpieces involving colored eggs (of course!) that we couldn’t choose one that we thought was the very best. Fortunately, as long as you know the basics, you’re free to adjust an Easter egg centerpiece in any way you like. At the very least, you’ll need hard-boiled or blown eggs, some paint, and a paintbrush. From there on, it’s all up to you. If you need a place to start, consider some of these easter egg centerpieces.
First, paint each egg with colors of your choice. Common Easter colors are pastel yellows, blues, pinks, and greens. As long as you stick with those colors, you shouldn’t have any problem achieving the style you’re going for. After you’ve finished painting the eggs, allow them to dry completely.
Step two (optional)
Once the paint is dry, you can go ahead with step two. Using gold, black, or brown paint and a stiff paintbrush, create a spray of dark speckles on your painted eggs and let them dry. Of course, you can choose to skip this step, but we think that the adorable dark speckles really add something to this centerpiece.
There are so many things you can do with your decorative eggs at this point. You can create a flowery wreath and tuck the eggs into its center, find a big glass jar, place the eggs inside, and arrange flowers on top of them, or even display the eggs in a little basket in the middle of your table. Like we said, it’s up to you to choose which arrangement you’ll enjoy the most!
#2: A seasonal tablecloth
While you can always buy an Easter tablecloth from the store, you should definitely consider purchasing some fabric and designing a seasonal tablecloth that’ll feel more unique and personal during your holiday meal this year. It’ll add to your Easter decor in a big way!
A few things to keep in mind
When in doubt, pastel colors are always an easy way to make a tablecloth embody the Easter spirit. If you’re already feeling a little overwhelmed with all the pastel colors in your home, a simple floral design or a pattern that includes familiar Easter symbols like crosses, birds or bunnies will also work. Ultimately, you’ll have to decide what looks good in your own home, but keeping some Easter traditions in mind can’t hurt either.
#3: An Easter garland for the family room
This Easter garland is a DIY craft that gets everything right – it’s elegant, simple, and cheap all at once. In addition, it’s a great decor item to use in your living room if your kitchen is already overflowing with decorations. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Old paint chips that you might have lying around. As with Easter egg projects, you’ll want to stick with the traditional pastel colors or darker colors associated with Easter.
- String (make sure you have enough for the whole garland.)
Create the garland
After you’ve gathered all the supplies you need, you can start putting together your garland.
- First of all, you’ll need to create egg shapes from the paint chips, as shown in the instructions.
- Next, lay a piece of string on the backs of your egg shapes.
- Finally, attach each shape to the string using tape. You might need to use multiple pieces of tape to make sure everything stays put.
- Now you can hang up your garland in your family room and show off its gorgeous colors!
#4: An Easter wreath for your family room or front door
With burlap and colorful eggs, this wreath could hang over the fireplace in your family room or greet your guests at the front door. Either way, it’s a stunningly beautiful decoration that includes a gorgeous range of colors and can adapt to any style. Since this one is a little more complicated to create, check out the instruction article that we’ve linked above to find out how to make your own.
#5: Candy-filled mason jars
If your kids are past the age for Easter baskets but still love snacking on candy, simply fill some mason jars with candy and place them throughout your home. They’re easy decorations that everyone will enjoy, because who doesn’t love snacking on Easter candy?
Add an extra touch
Mason jars are so plain that they provide an endless world of crafting opportunities. So, add an extra decorative touch to yours with craft supplies.
An exterior coat of paint on a mason jar immediately gives it a chic style boost, while ribbons and lace are often used to attach name tags to jars. Each one is a cute detail that the kids will love!
Let your family know they’re important this Easter
Sometimes it’s the little things – like candy-filled mason jars for the kids – that mean the most to your family during the holidays. Your decorations don’t have to be perfect, but by taking the time to create a little decor for this holiday, you’re showing your family that you care about them.
