Easter decorations: Try these DIY ideas!

by Charlotte.Barnes on April 5, 2012

Easter marks the beginning of spring for many of us. It’s full of symbols of new life, such as baby animals, the buds on trees and, of course, the egg. We’ve rounded up some of the best Easter decoration ideas so you can make your home look bright and welcoming over the holiday weekend.

The natural look

Bring nature inside with a nest

While Easter flowers are a great way of bringing the outside in, a nest will also do that and it’s prefect for Easter. This tutorial from the Miss Mustard Seed blog talks you through how to make a beautiful nest from easy to get materials.

I don’t think we need to tell you that you should never take a nest from the wild.

Easter tree


This beautiful Easter tree is simple and cheap to make. You’ll need to start by finding a few fallen branches – a good excuse for a walk in the woods. The finished tree can be displayed on a table, in an entrance hall or even outside during your Easter barbecue. For the full tutorial visit the A Little Bird Told Me blog.

Easter twig decoration


Another Easter tree decoration. These are brilliant for bringing a little of the outdoors into your home and, once you’ve made the basic structure, you can decorate it however you want. Pom Pom Emporium has accented the ends of the branches with beautiful pom poms made from yarn. Take a look at the tutorial for yourself.

Beautiful Eggs

Easter baskets filled with painted eggs


These Easter Baskets from The Contemporary Home would look great dotted around the house. You could fill them with flowers or even small chocolate eggs, so friends and family can have a treat whenever they walk by. They’d also look wonderful on an Easter dinner table. If you have a little time then try planting them full of beautiful spring flowers.

Pocket Easter eggs

These little Easter eggs would be perfect as treats hidden around the house. Fabric eggs are much more interesting than plastic or rubber ones and Sew, Mama, Sew! has come up with the perfect solution to the fact that, normally, you can’t put anything in a fabric egg. In the pocket could be hidden a sweet or perhaps a clue to find the next egg on the hunt! Take a look at Sew, Mama, Sew! for the full tutorial.

Hydrangea Easter egg


These stunning decorations are simply large plastic eggs covered with faux hydrangeas, although you could create a similar look with fresh flowers. These would look great on the mantlepiece or you could create different sizes to form an interesting table arrangement. Take a look at The Sweet Survival for the tutorial.

Glitter Easter egg


If you are looking for another way to decorate eggs for Easter then this is perfect and you can get the kids involved too! Glitter can be very messy to work with but Craftaholics Anonymous even give tips on how to keep the mess to a minimum in this tutorial! Take a look at it here.

Around the home

Easter Wreath


This easy Easter wreath is full of gorgeous spring colours as well as some sequin Easter eggs. It would make the perfect welcome to any guest arriving at your house. Take a look at Debbie Does Creations for the full tutorial.

Paint chip garland


If you’ve recently been redecorating then it’s likely you have a lot of paint cards in your house. If you do and you want to do something useful with them then you can follow this tutorial over at Modern Parents Messy Kids. It would look great hanging on the mantlepiece.

Cute chick decoration


For those of you who have some basic sewing skills, this little chick could be the perfect project. Not only is it adorable, but it’s really simple to make. The tutorial is over at Mousy Brown’s House and has step-by-step instructions along with photos.
