Easy Easter Decorating on the Cheap

Decorating for Easter can be a lot of fun, even if you don’t have a lot of money to spend. Easter décor can also help to set the mood for the warm spring months ahead, after the long, cold, and dreary winter has passed. It can also be entertaining to make your own simple Easter decorations. The low-cost Easter decorating ideas that follow will help get your creative juices flowing and to get your home ready for the Easter Bunny!

Creative Easter Centerpiece

One creative and inexpensive way to dress up the Easter table or to bring the look of springtime to a table in the foyer or the living room is with an Easter centerpiece. You can easily make a fun and eye-catching Easter centerpiece with a cake stand (bottom only), some Easter grass in your favorite color, and some colorful Easter eggs. Line the base of the stand with the Easter grass and then stack dyed Easter eggs like a pyramid on top of it. You can also use plastic eggs that have been weighted down with candy on the inside. In lieu of the cake stand, a clear bowl can also be used. Simply line the bottom with the grass and position your Easter eggs on top. Another great centerpiece can be made with just a basic Easter basket that you have filled with Easter eggs and mingled with some loose artificial flowers like tulips, daisies, and so on.

Colorful and Fun Easter Wreath

An inexpensive grapevine wreath and some creativity with a hot glue gun can yield a super attractive wreath for your entry door. To make, gather your favorite Easter items– like colorful plastic or lightweight ceramic eggs, small stuffed bunnies, tiny plush chicks, crosses, or other novelties with an Easter theme. Attach them with hot glue to the wreath – and voila! You have a fitting holiday wreath that will add color and whimsy to your entryway.

Indoor Easter Tree

Another inexpensive way to show that your home is geared up for Easter is to create an Easter egg tree. This type of tree can be quite fun to decorate, and is a good way to get more use out of a white Christmas tree. Put your tree up like you would for the holidays, but instead of donning the ornaments that you normally use, create ornaments with plush bunnies and chicks and plastic Easter eggs instead. You might also have a religious themed tree and decorate it with miniature crosses instead. Add lights in a
rainbow of colors and shredded tinsel.

Outdoor Easter Tree

Bring the beauty of Easter to your landscape with an outdoor Easter tree. The bare branches of a tree or bush can become the perfect place to hang colorful plastic Easter eggs. To attach, hot glue a length of doubled-up ribbon to the top of the egg and then hang from the branches at equal intervals. In no time, your lawn will become the envy of the neighbors and perhaps become the inspiration for a neighborhood competition for the most elaborate Easter tree!
