I usually have Easter eggs and bunnies all throughout our house at this time of year. We usually host Easter brunch or dinner at our home, but this year we will be away. So … since I didn’t decorate much this year, I thought I’d share some of my favorite home decor ideas using Easter Eggs.
Most pictures are on my Pinterest board called “Happy Easter“. You can follow any of my boards on Pinterest. (Picture above from Talia Audenart).
Using eggs as containers (or vases) for flowers can add so much to an Easter tablescape. You can dye the raw eggs first in desired colors. Crack open the eggs (on the pointed side of egg) and clean out the egg shell.
Small flowers work best (Pansies, lily of the valley, lillac). I have several old silver egg cups that I found at antique flea markets. I also have found white, glass egg cups (like upper, left picture) at HomeGoods and online.
For the artistic, handpainted eggs make beautiful decorations. (Martha Stewart, left and Censational Girl, right).
There are many cute egg crafts for kids. Get out your scrapbooking supplies and decorate colored eggs with ribbons, rhinestones and more. Or display decorated eggs in the cute muffin/cupcake papers. (The grass papers are available at Michael’s Craft Store).
You can make beautifully decorated eggs using punched paper. These eggs above are decorated with flower-punched paper. Get ready to glue …
And there are many cute Easter desserts and treats to make in the shapes of eggs. I’ll do a separate post of Easter treats. Stay tuned…
