The egg hunt will soon be on but the hunt for great DIY Easter home decor ideas is already in full swing. How about adding these three simple and inexpensive crafts to your basket?
Mason Jar Easter Egg Nest
This DIY Easter decoration is perfect for a country chic or rustic theme. All you need is a mason jar, some colored eggs, and some tiny twigs and sticks.
First, you will need to make your nest. Bend the sticks and twigs so that they are curved, and do your best to press them into the bottom of the mason jar in the shape of a nest. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Next, carefully put as many colored Easter eggs as you can into the jar, so that you can put the lid on without them cracking. You can use hard-boiled eggs, but if you want it to last longer, hollowed out eggs are the way to go. Now all there is to do is find a pretty place to set them.
Tiny Easter Egg Tree
Jelly beans act as mini Ester eggs in this delightful decoration, and making it couldn’t be any easier. You’ll only need a small tree branch, a hand full of jelly beans, and a small container of dirt.
First of all, you’ll need a good branch to use as your tiny tree. Try to find one that has plenty of forks in it, and little knobs to stick your jelly beans on.
Next, using something sharp (I used a toothpick), make a hole in the bottom of a jelly bean and stick it on the tip of one of the branches of your tree. Repeat the process until a jelly bean has been stuck on every branch and nub on your tree.
To finish it off, stick the bottom of the branch into your small container of dirt so that it stands upright, and your tiny Easter egg tree is finished.
Easter Egg Napkin Holder
This is a super easy way to make Easter dinner a little more festive this year, and all you need are some colored eggs to pull it off.
First, decorate some raw eggs so that they compliment your napkins and table settings. Get creative and use what ever you like.
Nest, carefully tap a small hole in the top of the egg with something sharp. Gradually whittle the edges of the hole until it is about an inch wide. Drain out the yolk and egg white.
When your eggs are dry, it is time to stuff the napkins in them. You’ll have to be very careful to avoid cracking. The idea is to stuff the bottom portion of the napkin into the egg, while the rest sticks out of the top. The effect is similar to the way tissue sticks out of the top of a gift bag. You may have to experiment a little to get it just right.
