As the first blooms and buds of spring appear, now is a great time to bring some sunshine and energy of the new season into your home. If you’re ready to add some spring touches, why not opt for colours and crafts inspired by Easter?
From floral centrepieces to DIY projects for the kids, we’ve compiled our favourite ways to incorporate some Easter details into your home.
Go full bloom with flowers
Nothing says spring quite like bringing the blossoming outdoors in with vibrant blooms. Add a subtle floral touch to your home with a beautiful centrepiece or opt for a seasonal wreath for your front door. Alternatively, go full flower power and incorporate Easter-inspired florals into accessories like bedding and tablecloths.
Create an Easter tree
We love the idea of an Easter tree to hang decorations on and it’s so easy to create. Look for discarded branches and simply place in your favourite vase for an understated yet stylish look. If you fancy adding more of a pastel feel to your tree, spray paint the branches or go for gold for a luxe Easter look. Heavy decorations my be difficult to hang so look out for delicate honeycomb styles that are available in a range of colours that can be tied in with your Easter style.
Stay relaxed and natural
If you like the idea of seasonal decor but want to keep your changes subtle, a relaxed and natural approach is the way to go. Pair Easter-inspired motifs with woven details such as baskets and placemats, alongside flowers and buds from your garden for a rustic and effortless look. This laid-back approach to Easter decor is versatile and can work for all year round, as well as being easy to match to neutral and colourful homes alike.
Shine a spotlight on yellow
The colour of the season? Yellow, of course! From sunshine and daffodils to the feathers of baby chicks, Easter is the perfect time to embrace the joy of this cheerful colour. Start with soft furnishings like cushions and lighter blankets, and build up to the big things if you like how they look.
Yellow is also a great promoter of creativity, so the ideal accompaniment to DIY decorations. Try weaving yellow flowers into handmade wreaths for a natural touch, or if you’re short on time, get in touch with an independent business who can craft a bespoke piece just for you.
Get crafty with DIY decorations
Embrace your creativity this Easter with some homemade, handmade decorations. Wrap brown paper neatly around drinks bottles or chocolate eggs and pull together at the top to look like Easter bunny ears! Alternatively, try your hand at making bunting to hang around your home; use a stencil to create an Easter bunny print or go letter by letter to spell out Happy Easter. Paper chains are also a great DIY decoration that take little effort to put together but look great when hung in the right spots.
Switch up your shelfie
Shelves offer so much seasonal styling potential and are easy to edit according to the time of year. Choose some sweet bunting, add some pastel blooms and group together your Easter accessories to create a curated look that will add cheer throughout April.
Have family-friendly fun
Looking for ways to keep the kids busy over the Easter break? Get them involved in your DIY project. While bunting and paper chains may be too fiddly for little hands, there are plenty of activities to try that will have the whole family feeling creative. Use paper plates as canvases for Easter-inspired paintings, turn them into bunny masks, or keep it traditional with egg painting – make sure they’re hard boiled or blow out the yolk to create delicate hollow eggs.
Decorate with eggs
The egg is one of the most prominent symbols of Easter, and can make a great addition to your seasonal decorations. We all love chocolate eggs at Easter, so why not weave them into your decor? Store them in glass jars out of the sun for a playful look that will keep your mouth watering.
Remember those eggs you decorated before? Try hanging them from a sturdy potted plant or branch to recreate a classic Easter look at home.
Embrace the Easter bunny
Another iconic feature of Easter is, of course, the Easter bunny. Incorporate bunny details into your decor with small ornaments, DIY creations, or other rabbit-shaped accessories. You could also try working the rabbit into your place settings by carefully wrapping dinner napkins around a decorated egg, or choosing a tablecloth or crockery with a rabbit motif.
If you want to decorate your children’s bedrooms, go for a super sweet Easter garland that can be used for years to come.
Be playful with pastels
Easter is the perfect time of year to style pastel colours in your home. While yellow remains a staple of the Easter season, other colours such as blush pink and baby blue are great for welcoming warmer weather and matching to naturals and neutrals alike. For a flexible approach to colour that can be swapped out according to season, choose soft furnishings like cushions and rugs.
