Decorating for Easter Using What You Already Have

Posted on 03/18/2013

The arrival of spring means many of us will be swapping out our sweaters and snow boots for sundresses and sandals. In addition to rejuvenating your closet, give your home a springtime makeover in time for Easter. Instead of hopping to the store, try decorating for the holiday using what you already have with these creative ideas.

Coloring Easter Eggs
Dying Easter eggs is an annual tradition for many families, but there's no need to spend money on store-bought supplies. All you need to do is mix a half cup of boiling water with a half teaspoon of white vinegar, then add your food coloring of your choice. Don't have food coloring? Go natural by using grass for green, turmeric for yellow or beets for pink.

Crepe Paper Carrots
Leave it to Martha Stewart to transform something ordinary like crepe paper into adorable carrots for your Easter centerpiece. You'll need crepe streamers in colors like apricot, golden yellow, orange and green. Find free printable templates at

Decorating with Veggies
Few things epitomize springtime better than fresh veggies. So decorate for Easter by invading your vegetable drawer. Create a topiary out of Brussels sprouts or make place settings for Easter brunch out of stalks of asparagus.

Easter Egg Tree
You probably won't have to leave your yard for this decor idea. Find a branch and use spray paint or keep it natural to create an Easter egg tree. Country Living magazine suggests hanging candy or eggs from the branches with decorative ribbon.

Watermelon Rabbit
Veggies make great decorations, and so does fruit! Head to for simple instructions on how to expertly carve a watermelon into the shape of a bunny rabbit. Fill it with fruit to create an unforgettable addition to your Easter table.
