Peter Cottontail may not quite be hoping down the bunny trail yet, but Easter is on its way! If your home needs a little spring bling, try these 5 easy and fun Easter decorating ideas:
Glitter Polka Dot Easter Eggs
Add some sparkle to your Easter eggs! Simply paint your eggs (wooden, cardboard, blown-out, etc.) in varying pastel shades and allow to dry. Then apply dots of glue in a random pattern and sprinkle glitter over the eggs. Place the eggs on a bed of moss in the bowl or holder of your choice for a shimmering display.
Burlap Easter Wreath
For this beautiful wreath, you’ll need a 16 inch metal wreath form, about 12 yards of 4-inch burlap, decorations of your choice, and jute. Begin by looping the burlap through the top, middle, and outer rims of your wire form. Push burlap together as you go all the way around the wreath, then fluff out any twisted loops to hide the metal form. Using jute (which will blend in with the burlap) secure the embellishments you’ve selected. You can find your Easter embellishments at Hobby Lobby or any decorating store. This wreath is not only fabulous, but also very versatile. You can replace the Easter decorations with decor for each season or holiday and keep the wreath up all year long.
Bunny Ears Napkin
Add an adorable touch to your Easter table with this napkin fold. Click here for diagram.
Step 1- Take a square napkin (preferably linen or a thin cotton), and starch it for optimal workability.
Step 2- Fold the napkin in half.
Step 3- Fold the napkin in half again, to form a long rectangle.
Step 4- Fold the right and left sides up to meet in the center, forming a point at one end.
Step 5- Repeat with the opposite corners.
Step 6- Fold the side corners in so they meet in the center. Pull up above the center point, and you’ll start to see the ears shape up. The napkin will form a kite shape.
Step 7- Turn your napkin over carefully.
Step 8- Fold the bottom point up, so that it is roughly 1” above the center of the napkin.
Step 9- Gently turn the napkin over again.
Step 10- Roll the left side over, slightly past the center of the napkin.
Step 11- Fold the right side over, tucking the end into the pocket you created on the left side, holding your napkin together.
Step 12- Turn the napkin upright, separating the bottom to form a base. Fluff your bunny’s ears.
Fill old watering cans with fresh tulips for this shabby chic spring centerpiece. Pair with some vintage chicks or bunnies to complete the look.
