Celebrate Easter With These Decorative Craft Projects

Home & Garden Blog

Easter is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the holiday and the coming of spring than by decorating your home.

Instead of adorning your house with those typical boxed decorations that everyone else uses to decorate for Easter, put your creativity to use to come up with some unique decorative accents. Need some inspiration to get you started? Here are some unique ideas that you can incorporate into your Easter décor.

A Garland of Eggs

Eggs are classic symbol of Easter, as they represent rebirth. Showcase a collection of colorful eggs in your home décor this Easter season by making a garland of eggs.

To create this decoration, all you need is a collection of plastic eggs and some twine. Tie a knot in one end of a length of twine and then simply insert the twine through the holes located on either end of the eggs. Once your garland has reached the desired length, tie a knot in the opposite end and voila! – You've got yourself a decorative Easter garland. Drape it from your mantel, a curtain rod or anywhere else you think that this decoration would add a festive touch.

A Jelly Bean Wreath

Turn this quintessential Easter candy to create an eye-catching wreath for your front door.

Start out by cutting a piece of sturdy cardstock into wreath form. Once cut out, punch a hole in the top of the cardstock and string a length of pastel-colored ribbon through it. Tie a knot in the end of the ribbon, creating a handle from which to hand the wreath. Complete the decoration by covering the wreath form with glue and then adhere jelly beans to it. For a cohesive look, stick to a collection of solid-colored jelly beans; if you're interested in a more whimsical design, affix multi-colored jelly beans to the craft.

Decorative Crosses

Crosses are the central element of the Easter holiday. Create one-of-a-kind decorative crosses to display around your home during this time of the year with twigs, beads and glue.

Take two twigs, one shorter than the other, and fashion them into a cross position, using glue to adhere them to one another. Next, take craft beads and attach them to the cross formation with the glue. You can apply the beads any way you'd like; to create a more elaborate look, apply several beads, and for a simpler design, attach only a few.

With these three craft ideas, you can give your home a festive look this coming Easter season.
