From table decorations to gift baskets and Easter bonnets, it’s a lovely time of year to celebrate with family and friends. So, whether you would like to spend some time in the garden and use plants for decoration or if you’d prefer to be in the warm cooking up a sweet treat, these 4 DIY decoration ideas should give you plenty of inspiration to enjoy Easter.

 

1. Create an easy table centrepiece Easter decoration

A lovely idea to combine a piece of the outside with the indoors is to go out looking for some long twigs to place in a clear vase in the centre of the table. The tall stems can also be used to hang fun and colourful decorations from, such as painted eggs (or small chocolate eggs) plus ribbon bows or anything that matches your style and theme. If you would prefer to go more natural, why not fill the vase with stones and place stems with blossom on it for a fragrant display as well.

 

2. For an edible Easter decoration idea - get baking!

It’s a great activity for children and adults alike and they make such lovely decoration ideas. They can be painted in any colours, or styles as needed and placed altogether on a plate, or hanging up for a lovely Easter display. Plus…they can be used year after year.
