Easter crafts and Easter decorations

Easter is almost here, and that means time with the family, Easter arts and crafts, and Easter decorations. Sure, you can hard-boil some eggs and paint faces on them, but why not try something a little different this year?

When I grew up in the country, every Easter began by making a group of decorations and picking moss from the pine forest nearby. It was wonderful to be so close to nature and hear the Spring birds chirping. Nothing will ever beat my wonderful Easters with my mother in the country, but at least I can show you all how to make your very own cosy Easter this year with handcrafts and decorations :)

Easter handcrafts and decorations: 8 new ideas!

Easter crafts

1. Make your own Easter flower group

You need:

  • A small basket or tin bucket
  • Earth or stone to add weight to the container
  • Fresh, green moss as a base to be laid on top of the earth/stone
  • Mini daffodils
  • Free choice Easter decorations at the front of the group. I used home made painted Easter eggs, and small yellow chickens

You can of course create all sorts of variations, e.g. with ivy or willow twigs. Use your imagination. You design the masterpiece :)

2. Surprise guests with Easter bunny serviettes

What could be more fun that sitting down for an Easter meal with something a little unexpected at the table?

Here is a serviette, folded into a cute Easter bunny. Folding instructions HERE

    I like your idea of choosing a paint that comes close to the wood. I think that is by far the best solution because it will have a unifying effect, and I think it’ll look bigger than it already is.
