5 Easter Ideas for DIY Home Decor
Get inspiration and ideas for DIY Easter decorations.
I was thinking about getting some Easter ideas for indoor decoration that can incorporate materials found in nature, and better yet, from my garden.
Oftentimes I find inspiration by browsing photos on Pixabay, and this time wasn’t an exception. I stumbled upon quite a few good Easter decoration pictures that help in coming up with ideas for Easter table decorations that are suitable for DIY, easy to construct, and will not cost much to make (you will probably find the majority of needed items in your home and backyard).
So, I will share my photo finds with you and hope you will get inspired too.

1. Easter basket with wheat grass

As you see from the pictures above – you can make Easter table decor or a centerpiece for Easter using a basket, wheatgrass and dyed eggs. Additionally, you can stick pussy willow and forsythia branches, or tulips and daffodils in the grass too ( just place them in the little individual floral picks). Though I prefer to keep branches and flowers separate – like forsythia in mason jar in the second picture.
Just be aware that it takes 6-10 days for wheat grass to grow, so calculate your time correctly. If you didn’t grow wheat grass before – read instructions how to do it here.
You can buy wheatgrass seeds on Amazon and use it not only for Easter decor, but enjoy wheat grass juice for your own health benefits. Your cat will like wheatgrass too.
As for dyed Easter eggs – use natural egg dye kit or this year try coloring Easter eggs with onion skins.

2. Bird nests

A bird nest makes a perfect cradle for dyed Easter eggs. You can use a large nest for an egg display. Gluing soft fuzzy catkins from pussy willow around the nest is quite ingenious!

Another great idea is to use little nests for individual Easter egg serving – just place a dyed egg in the nest at each family member’s table setting. If you would like to obtain these cute nests – I found the 2.25″ diameter ones at Michael’s online store.
3. Egg shells and herbs

Get creative and have fun with egg shells and herbs. What a wonderful Easter decor for the kitchen counter!
Or use dyed egg shells to serve as vases for small flowers from your flower bed: like primulas, grape hyacinths, crocuses, violas, freesias, lilies-of-the-valley. The choice of flowers depends on the date of Easter.
Alternatively, you can purchase ceramic planters that look like egg shell and have it for years to come .
4. Spring flowers and branches in unusual containers

Get a basket, empty flower pot, watering can, vintage metal can, mason jar, wood tray, cheery vase, metal tab – and place in it spring flowers, pussy willow, forsythia, hazel or filbert branches with catkins that you can find in your backyard.
I hope you are growing pussy willow and forsythia bushes for spring interest in your garden. If you do not, consider planting some this year. Pussy willow and forsythia
- grow fast
- do not require much care
- make a perfect hedge
- can be used in spring bouquets, and Easter home decor.
Combine pussy willow branches with tulips and daffodils. This combination always states, “Spring is here!”
Another idea is to get a planter with Easter Bunny or rabbit and use it as a holder for a bouquet made of branches and flowers, wheat grass with dyed eggs, or flowering bulbs.
5. Easter eggs hanging from branches

Make a centerpiece incorporating tall yet flexible branches (like red willow, forsythia, hazel, dogwood, birch) and hang colorful plastic eggs from them stuffed with Easter candies. For added interest clip butterflies on the branches.
What about hanging plastic eggs with Easter treats on the bushes outdoors and bring Easter egg hunt to a whole new above ground level. Your kids will be delighted!

construct, are not costly, and that incorporate materials found in nature.
Be creative, have fun, and Happy Easter!
