With the recent observance of Easter Sunday, you may have plenty of themed decorations still hanging on your walls and you might be interested in keeping them up. While the holiday has distinctly religious overtones, Easter also has plenty of room for spring-themed arrangements and designs geared toward young children. With the right Easter crafts and Easter decorations, your neighbors won't be able to deny that your home has a festive and seasonal decor scheme. Here are some tips to get started.
A great way to include your children in the project is with arts and crafts. Decorating Easter eggs is a holiday tradition that is simple enough for even the youngest kids to enjoy. Run out and pick up some regular store-bought eggs and colorful dyes to begin. After hard boiling the eggs, you can dip them in dyes to create any sort of pattern you and your children desire. Not only is this a fun activity, and the finished eggs can be placed around your house as authentic homemade decorations - perfect for baskets and centerpieces.
If you're looking to spruce up your home's exterior, decorating the front porch is a good place to start. Consider placing a cardboard Easter bunny or wreath on the front door flanked by a couple of colorful eggs. In keeping with the spring elements of the holiday, set out some beautiful flower arrangements like sunflowers, roses, daffodils and lilies to give your exterior walkway an enhanced floral appeal. You might also want to keep some of the plastic eggs you decorated with your children around the yard for further adornment.
While the Easter bunny and decorated eggs represent the popular side of the holiday, you may also want to include some religious accents in your home. Easter is Christianity's most important holiday and is meant to generate hope and peace among believers, so consider hanging some framed inspirational Biblical quotes around your home. Ornate figurines of Jesus Christ and his disciples can be arranged to represent an important scene depicted in the New Testament.
Even if you don't purchase any Easter-specific accents, you can still bring out the spring spirit through a festive color scheme. By selecting pillows, window dressings, blankets, area rugs and other home accessories that sport light blues, oranges, greens, yellows, pinks and whites, you'll have a beautiful aesthetic in your interior that will last all season long.
