Here are three easy ideas that you can use to create Easter decor for your home.
Create pizzazz in plants around the house with some attention getting Easter shapes!
Rhinestones or small crystal accents
Cut off a flap from the cardboard box. Draw a flower, chick, butterfly, or other shape. If you are not artistically inclined, print out a shape from the web and glue it to the cardboard. Cut out your shape. Decorate with glitter, tissue paper, or crystals to your taste. Use the pipe cleaners for the cutout to sit on and place in planters or vases.
Update a boring vase by adding some colorful interest to it with patterned fabric cutouts.
Fabric with a pattern
Cut out the pattern pieces from the fabric. Lay out and choose pieces you want. On the wrong side of the fabric pieces, dab glue around edges. Place glue side onto the vase and press in place. Allow to dry.
This project adds a bit of whimsy and cuteness to the home.
Pink, blue, and black tissue paper
Stuffing (pillow stuffing, newspapers, shredded paper)
Two white kitchen 13- gallon trash bags
- Fill bag number one about halfway; position it with the bottom end of the bag upwards. Pinch a corner creating an ear shape and tie off with string.
- Repeat on the opposite corner. Leave space between the ears.
- Fill the bag another quarter full. The head should be slightly smaller than the body. Tie off the opened end.
- Fill the second bag. Leave room to manipulate the stuffing without tearing the bag.
- Tie off the second bag.
- Position the two bags so the tied off ends are together; tie the two pieces together.
- Make a round shape in the front of the body with some stuffing and tie off with string.
- Cut out ear shapes and a triangle shape for the nose from pink tissue paper.
- Cut three pieces of black yarn for whiskers.
- Cut out blue half ovals for eyes and smaller black half ovals for the center of the eyes.
- Roll small pieces of tape and stick to the back of the eyes, nose, whiskers, and ear pieces and press in place on the head.
