This year, stores are offering an impressive selection of ready-to-use Easter decorations for your home. Buying premade decorations does save time, but what if you do have the time and a desire to be creative? Here are my easy, fun, and, most importantly, budget-friendly Easter-themed decoration ideas.
Easter Trees If we decorate a Christmas tree for Christmas, why not decorate an Easter tree for Easter? There’s no need to worry about finding a tree in the middle of April; a small, artificial Christmas tree will work just fine. I like to decorate mine with small chocolate eggs or peeps. You can fasten them to the branches with yarn or ribbon. You are also more than welcome to use decorations of your choice.
Bunny Baskets If you or your children feel like collaborating on a project, a bunny basket is such a fun thing to make. You will need a few supplies including a woven basket of any size or shape, colored paper, and markers. And of course, you can`t forget the staple of this project – a chocolate bunny. After all, what would a bunny basket be without a bunny? To start off you should place the bunny in the basket and then go where your imagination takes you. You can make fake grass out of strips of green construction paper, draw and stick flowers to the sides of the basket, decorate a few plastic eggs with markers and put them in the basket; essentially create a basket that represents Easter. Once Easter comes around the chocolate bunny can be a nice treat for the kids or the adults (a childhood sweet tooth is hard to grow out of).
Pussy Willow Branches If there is one thing that reminds me of spring and Easter it`s definitely pussy willow branches. When I was younger, whenever spring rolled around my mother would place at least three vases of pussy willow branches around the house and it always signified that Easter was just around the corner. The branches are typically pretty long and require a tall vase, although you can definitely trim them to a desired length. You can put the pussy willow branches in water or keep in them in a vase without water and let them dry out. They will definitely bring some spring and Easter spirit to any home.
