A modern approach to the Easter Egg.

On top of my favorite decorations ideas for this spring holiday is this wonderful and simple project but with a tremendous impact in the décor. The Easter tradition involves painting eggs usually red, but recently the modernism took over and therefore eggs are painted in various bright colors. Similar to eggs a great decoration idea for your home is to paint some round rocks in different sizes and colors.

This decorative idea is basically a combination of two ideas presented earlier. Making a wreath from hydrangea is not that simple but looking  at these step by step pictures along with my description, this can be a recipe for success. You will need to get started 10 hydrangea stems, a hot  gun, wire cutters  and a relatively small grape wreath. First you will need to cut off your every plant’s bloom leaving a stem of roughly 3 inches long, then push the stems into the wreath. After everything is in place and you like the finished product, use the hot glue gun to secure everything in place. Hanged by the front door this wonderful natural wreath will let people know that joy and happiness lives here.{found on vanessachristenson}.

Deciding to make a spring bunny pillow around this time of year couldn’t be more welcomed.  The Ester’s joy can also be transpose in your bedroom or on your living room couch. To make a pillow you will need some sewing skills to make the personalized cover and you will need something to stuff in as well.  After deciding what fabric to use, draw and cut a simple bunny template then put as a background an image that will nicely expose the contour.  Sew the pillow case on a sewing machine and then fill it up.  The result will be both appreciated by kids and you, not to mention the playful note added to your interior.  What a wonderful Easter project, especially that it can be done in a very short period of time and with some basic skills and materials.{found on tatertotsandjello}.

As we can see Easter baskets are highly demanded in this period and all I can do is to show you more creative ideas to make such items. This one is similar to the one above but the material is different as is the technique. To make this original egg basket you will need some small tubing on which you will later wrap strips of colored and patterned material. After the entire length of the tubing is covered you will have to actually roll and sew the wrapped piping until the basket takes shape.  The handle are made with in the same manner, just make sure to secure them very well to the basket so you won’t have surprises when trying to move your eggs or bunnies.{found on modabakeshop}.

This next project approaches Easter and Easter decoration from the egg’s perspective. Instead of making a place for eggs or to somehow highlight them, this project proposes to transform the eggs into the actually decoration.  As we know, eggs are an indispensable part of Easter, no matter if they are real, chocolate, painted or in any other way. This wonderful original idea focuses on taking the egg and paint it with some chalkboard paint, after that let it dry for a little bit. Then, with some real chalk write or draw anything you like on them. It will definitely surprise your guests and maybe even they will take part on a game that involves writing funny messages or names.{found on oleanderandpalm}.

So, do you think that we’re done with Easter Baskets? Think again! Cool ideas never stop from coming, especially for a project so common but in the same time unique and highly appreciated. Flowers are a traditional way  of decorating on any special occasion, but given the fact that it’s spring and everything blossoms how can you not take advantage of the nature’s  beauty? We are  not going to use fresh flowers   and leaves because in less than a day they will  dry and fall off, but we will try to mimic natural flower arrangements on a woven basket with a nice handle.  Hot  glue the buds or leaves onto the basket and make sure that you have covered the entire surface, then place some nice silk or satin fabric inside the basket to cover the unattractive side and then place your eggs. Work done; all you have to do know is to enjoy your original Easter Egg Basket.{found on martha}.

Last, but not least, this project invokes the festive side of the Easter. Like in all special occasions decorations have to be accompanied by messages. If you have a mantel in your house over a fireplace or part of any other kind of design I’m going to show you a way to transform it in a playful element with fresh notes. As you can see in these pictures, you can cover the mantel’s top with plenty of faux grass, bringing inside the spring through its wonderful colors. Hanging a banner from it with will reinforce the original statement: spring is here, Easter is here.  To animate a little bit the newly created focal point you can use suggestive plush toys or elements that will add a big smile on your face every time you look towards the entire ensemble.{found on crapivemade}.
