Pretty and easy Easter decorating ideas to dress up your home for the holiday! Easter is a time to let your crafty side shine! Set the scene for some Easter holiday fun with Easter decorations.
Filling a rustic watering can with pink tulips, greenery, and pastel blue eggshells is the perfect decoration for spring. Stuff the watering can with floral foam to secure the stems. Add picks to blown-out eggshells to secure them as well. When you’re finished creating the arrangement, wire it to your front door and cover the wire with ribbon.
To keep flowers fresh, put the stems in water vials or heavy plastic bags filled with floral foam powder, available at floral supply stores.
A tumble of pastel eggs is an Easter craft for kids that makes a cheery welcome at the front door. Wrap plastic foam egg shapes (available at crafts supply stores) with strips of crepe paper, attaching ends with glue or a small straight pin. Embellish with ribbon secured using small straight pins, leaving a long end for tying. Gather eggs at varying heights and tie ribbons together. Hang from a removable adhesive hook or wreath hanger, and add a ribbon bow to complete the Easter decoration.

How to do:
Dye eggs in different colours and let dry completely. Put a sheet of wax paper on the table. Lay a strip of ribbon longer than the circumference of the egg. The right side of the ribbon should be down on the wax paper. Using the foam brush, cover the entire surface of the ribbon with glue. Try not to move ribbon while doing this, so glue wouldn’t go on the underside. Put an egg at one end of the ribbon and roll it until ribbon fully encircles the egg. Let the ribbon overlap the starting point about ¼ inch, then press the end. Smooth ribbon against the egg with your fingers. Let dry.
When the ribbon is firmly glued on the egg, you can use different embelishments as the additional decoration – sequins, small mother of pearl buttons, narow ribbons, bows…
