DIY Easter Decorations
It's Easter Time!
Easter time!!! This is a chocolate filled, pastel coloured, fluffy tailed, delicate scented, baby animal time of year - don't you think? I love all the pretty colours you can see in home decorations, floral growth and even fashion, plus all the sweet baby animals! So if you are one of those people who likes to get a bit creative at this time of year and likes to decorate your home in some fun springtime easter decorations then this is the article for you. I have compiled 5 of my favourite spring home decorations here, just in time for you to make them ready for easter weekend.
I can't take credit for creating any of these beautiful crafts as I found them all online spread across a range of brilliant blogs and websites, you will find the links to all of the DIY's in each section below, so please visit them to get the full instructions if you would like to create any of these Easter themed home decorations.
Most importantly have fun and enjoy this spring time!
You'll find a few more of my easter and seasonal craft articles at the bottom!
Burlap Rabbit Table Runner
When I saw the picture of this table runner on a pintrest board I simply loved it! I love the rustic look to it, the clean and simple nature of the burlap base is just perfect. The original craft can be found on a new site I have found called Eclectically Vintage, I'm a little in love with these guys too! The idea is just so easy but yet looks so effective! I can image my family seated around the table with this beautiful burlap runner down the centre of our big oak dining table on easter sunday!
Bunny Rabbit Bunting
Everyone loves bunting! It's a fact! And bunny bunting is even more awesome! This was a cute little easter DIY that I found on a blog called Pieces of Me. I had seen a few other bunny shaped buntings but they were always side on silhouettes of rabbits, I love how she went with the simple shape of a bunny silhouette from behind, that way you can include the cute little cottontail! I think this just looks so sweet done in all the different patterned and coloured papers, I would happily keep it up all year round in a kids bedroom.
Easter Egg Tree
The first thing that caught my attention with this little beauty was obviously all the brightly coloured and glittery eggs. This easter craft can be found on Sweet Floweret where she will give you the instructions on how to create this easter egg tree. If you can't find these exact eggs though you will be able to make it with any craft or decorative eggs you can pick up in a dollar or pound store. I think this could look really cute if you made a few of them in different sizes and clustered them together on a side table. They would add a really great pop of colour to your home for the easter season.
Easter Egg Garland
This Easter Egg Garland DIY can be found on an awesome little site called Honey and Fitz. I simply love how fun and colourful it is, would add a nice bit of cheer to any room in the house, or jazz up your front door no matter how dull the weather is. And it really is so simple and cheap to make (another dollar/pound store craft!) Plus I think this would work for more than just easter, I think this would be a great decoration for a baby shower or any kids party really.

String Easter Egg Wreath
Of all the easter wreath DIY's I saw whilst researching this article this was by far my favourite and I found it on a brilliant crafty site called Wine and Glue, who also had lots more really simple and great DIY ideas. The pastel colours are just perfect for spring as far as I am concerned, the totally epitome of spring flowers, and I really love the delicate nature of the string eggs. I really wouldn't have thought of making these delicate eggs just using string, glue and balloons, a bit of a simple papier-mâché technique but using string really! So beautiful! It would be super cheap to make too, and you could make the eggs any colour you like, to match your home décor maybe? As it just depends on the string you buy. The possibility with these eggs is endless too, not only could you make a wreath you colour make garlands, mobiles, tree decorations, table decorations - anything really! Its just up to you!
