In the Christian tradition, Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. On this day, it is said that the Son of God was reborn and walked the Earth, thereby proving the ultimate triumph of good over evil. Understandably, in the weeks leading up to Easter you’ll see plenty of decorations indoors and out, as people are getting ready to celebrate.
If you want to join in all the fun, there are plenty of supplies available to help you decorate your own house, ranging from a theme of cute eggs and bunnies to religious symbols. You could spend a lot of money for ready-made decorations, but there’s always the option of making your own, for a fraction of the cost.
Given below are a few ideas to help get you started this Easter.
Decorating your house for Easter does not have to be an expensive affair.In addition to visiting clearance stores and seeing what you can find, you can always use arts and crafts to your advantage and make something unique that expresses your creativity.
Take a few eggs and use a needle to poke small holes in the top and bottom,then drain out the contents. Once these are (gently) washed and dried, they can be colored with paints or dyes.Draw on them with a marker first if you like, or add glitter while the paint is still wet. When finished, you can thread some string through the holes and hang them in your window, dining room, entryway, or on your porch.
The figure of the Easter Bunny has always been a huge part of the celebration of Easter. Small toy bunnies will be available everywhere during the season,but will probably be a little cheaper at an arts and crafts shop than in the mall. While you’re at it, you can get essential supplies like wicker baskets, and some straw to line them with (this can be real straw or the colorful fake stuff). Arrange the toy bunny in its new home with an artificial carrot, some fruit, or decorated egg. Make several of these adorable decorations and place them all over your house.
If toys don’t appeal to you, buy some unpainted Easter-themed figurines and decorate them yourself. These could come in the form of bunnies and chicks, or you could find more religious symbols, such as crosses or even Jesus Christ himself. Once they are colored, you can arrange them the way you like in your home or on your porch. Try baking some appropriately shaped cookies and posing them nearby, making for an even more festive scene.
With all the nooks and crannies of your house already decorated, there’s no reason to leave your tables bare. An appealing centerpiece on your dinner or coffee table would likely be the very first thing your guests would notice, and can help to set the tone for the entire household.A project like this can also be made at home, and even use many of the same ingredients as all your other Easter decorations. If you fashion a nest shape from cardboard, you can glue enough straw to the outside to make it look dense and realistic. Then, place inside of it a darling toy bunny, toy chicks, or decorated Easter eggs. You can even use white eggs (hollowed out as described above) to create a natural look for your nest.
