Spring brings a skip in your step, the first touch of sun on your skin, fresh, bright colors in your garden and a wealth of delicious seasonal ingredients. Hand-in-hand with spring comes Easter, providing the opportunity to decorate your home with handmade Easter crafts.
With that in mind, we’ve been working on a couple of DIY projects which will add a touch of spring and a nod to Easter in your home décor, delighting your houseguests and family alike.
DIY Project 1 – Colorful Easter Tabletop Decorations
Who said vegetables are just for eating? With all the colorful veggies that abound during spring, why not use them as simple decorations by combining them with flowers and candles for an eye-catching Easter tabletop?
We love the look of bright orange carrots in a clear vase, topped with tulips for a real spring feel. Don’t stop at carrots though – any veg or fruit will do! You could use asparagus instead of carrots, hollow out a cabbage and fills it with blooms, or simply fill a bowl with different colored tomatoes and dot flower heads on top.
For a simple touch to your table, cut the top off a lemon or lime and push one short-stemmed flower into the fruit. Putting each fruit into an eggcup will add to the Easter feel.
DIY Project 2 – Elegant Easter Cloches & Boards
Use a little bit of Easter inspiration to create an elegant cloche or simply a wooden board to decorate your coffee table or dresser, or leave on a bedside table as a thoughtful touch for your houseguests.
A nest of grass with pastel-colored eggs and rabbit figurines makes for a cute Easter display. If you’re a literature lover, you could stack the nest on a couple of books or use the page of a book as a smart backdrop to your scene. Add a few spring colored candles, and your decoration will be illuminated after nightfall.
