Are you looking for a fun way to decorate your home for the Easter season? One of the great ways to keep your family tuned in to the solemnity of Lent and the joy of Easter is to decorate your home for the season.

Using an Easter tree as a focal point in your holiday décor can be a great way to remind your family and those who visit your home about the importance of Easter and to celebrate the season.

Easter Tree Decoration Ideas

If you own an artificial Christmas tree, you already have the makings of a lovely Easter tree. Any green, white flocked, or silver aluminum tree will make an ideal base for a seasonally decorated Easter tree. After all, it’s not the tree itself that sets the tone for the season. It is the ornaments and color scheme that you choose to use when decorating the tree.

Set Up Your Easter Tree

To prepare an Easter tree for your home, simply set up your artificial Christmas tree in the area of your home where you would like to place your Easter tree. Rather than placing a Christmas theme tree skirt around the bottom of the tree, select fabric in a shade that is appropriate for Easter.

Some people prefer associate the pastel colors typically associated with spring when decorating for Easter. Others opt for purple (to represent royalty and the Kingdom of Heaven), red (to represent the blood of Christ), black (to represent sin) and white (to represent purity).

Simply visit a fabric store in your area and purchase a length of cloth in the color of your choice to drape around the bottom of your tree.

Decorate Your Easter Tree

There are many options for Easter tree ornaments, including colored eggs, basket ornaments, lambs, baby chicks, bunny rabbits and many others.

Party stores, department stores and Christian bookstores are likely to carry a variety of shapes and sizes of ornaments appropriate for Easter as well as strands of garland that can be used to add a final touch to your Easter tree.

If you have crafting skills or are looking for an activity that you can enjoy with your children, consider making your own Easter tree ornaments. You can find a number of appropriate craft ideas here.

You may even already have Christmas ornaments that can be used on your Easter tree. If so, you won’t even need to add many ornaments to your collection of seasonal décor to fully outfit your tree. Simple glass balls in pastel, white, red and purple are a lovely choice to blend with holiday specific ornaments that can be purchased or made specifically for your Easter tree.

Enjoy Your Easter Tree

Setting up an Easter tree is a lovely holiday tradition to begin in your home. It’s something that your children are likely to love and the adults will also appreciate.
