If you won’t be hosting children this Easter, you can also use baskets as creative Easter decoration ideas throughout your home, filling them with artificial or real flowers, decorated eggs, spring greenery, and other spring themed decorations. Baskets are a wonderful element of Easter decoration that fit well into almost any home.
The egg fits well into the spring season as a symbol of fertility. At Easter, eggs are frequently included in games such as egg rolls and egg tosses, hidden for egg hunts, and colored and used as beautiful decorations. There are many creative Easter decoration ideas that involve eggs, ranging from using them in their natural state to coloring them with brightly colored dyes. Whether you choose to use a pre-purchased egg dying kit, color your eggs with natural dyes, paint them in intricate patterns, or dye them with silk fabrics, coloring and using eggs is a long standing part of the tradition of celebrating Easter across many faiths.
Easter wreaths are a beautiful way to decorate the outside of your home’s door and welcome visitors into your home. Whether you choose a pre-purchased wreathe that is already decorated, or opt to select a grapevine wreath and decorate it yourself with eggs, flowers, and other spring greenery, it is sure to make quite the impression on your guests as they visit your house. The wreath is a long standing symbol of hospitality, no matter the season, and spring is a great time to freshen up the entrance to your home with an Easter themed wreath.
