Easter is a time of renewal and celebration, marking the arrival of spring with its promise of new beginnings and bright colors.

In this article, we’ll walk through our 10 favorite ways to decorate your home for Easter, including both indoor and outdoor ideas.

 

Tip: Before you buy any new materials or decorations, be sure to check any closets or bins at home — as well as your self-storage unit, if you have one — to see what items you already have on hand.

1. Easter Egg Garland

For a colorful pop that you can hang over mantels or drape over entryways, banisters and mirrors, consider creating DIY faux Easter egg garlands. You can use plastic or fabric eggs, which are reusable, and paint or dye them to match your desired color palette. All you’ll need are the eggs themselves, sturdy twine and a sewing needle to thread through the eggs. For a fancier garland, try adding neutral-colored felt pom-poms, small chick ornaments or other decorative embellishments between each egg. You can also purchase pre-made garlands, like this wood bead Easter egg garland, if you don’t have time to make them yourself.

2. Easter Wreath

Wreaths are a classic way to spruce up a door or add visual interest to a living room. While your standard spring wreaths may use seasonal blooms like tulips, zinnias and daffodils, you can make homemade Easter wreaths from high-quality artificial flowers, foliage and Easter-themed accents like faux eggs and bunnies for a bit of festive flair. Be sure to use a sturdy base to ensure your wreath holds up and stays in mint condition year after year. Wire, straw and styrofoam are all durable options, and you can manipulate them into various shapes — circles, crosses and more — based on your needs. Feel free to depart from the standard green-and-floral look, too, and experiment with more playful designs. For example, consider cutting pages from vintage floral magazines and incorporating them into your wreath, making a pom-pom bunny wreath or layering felt leaves in a circular pattern.

3. Decorative Easter Trees

Easter trees are a whimsical and eye-catching way to add a bit of spring indoors. Traditionally inspired by the German Easter tradition of decorating trees and bushes with eggs, these miniature versions can be as ornate or as simple as you want. Pop a few dried manzanita or willow branches into a large floor vase and adorn them with Easter-themed ornaments like dyed fabric eggs, pastel ribbons, mini bunnies or chicks. For a fun DIY activity night, you can even get creative and make reusable topiaries or crafty origami ornaments (perfect if you have children!).

4. Fabric Table Runners and Placemats

Fabric table runners and placemats printed with Easter motifs are a simple way to elevate your dining or kitchen table setting for the holiday. There are plenty of designs to consider — from subtle pastel linens embossed with spring flowers to more vibrant options featuring Easter eggs, bunnies and chicks — to match your interior design sensibilities. Don’t forget to purchase runners and placemats made of washable materials to ensure they can be reused each year. For added depth and a more sophisticated look, try layering a table runner over a contrasting tablecloth and adding matching placemats to tie the whole look together.

Tip: To compliment your tablecloths and runners, collect Easter-themed dishware for your Easter meals. Choose items that can hold up to use, such as ceramic or melamine plates and cups, and bring them out for the occasion.

5. Ceramic Easter Figurines

Ceramic figurines are the perfect way to add visual flair to mantelpieces, bookshelves, bathroom counters and coffee tables. If they’re not too heavy, you can also hang these from your decorative trees. If there are specific designs you’re interested in, consider collecting vintage figurines or ones with exceptionally beautiful colors and details, which can become its own cherished Easter tradition. For a range of textures, consider buying felt, wood, glass and even marble Easter ornaments to throw into the mix. If you’re interested in outdoor figurines, place some Easter bunny statues made from weather-resistant materials like resin or metal among your plants or next to your front door as a festive greeting.

6. LED Candle Arrangements

LED candles aren’t only an energy-efficient (and reusable) holiday decor option but also a versatile way to add warmth and ambiance to your living areas or tablescapes. They come in options like fairy lights, string lights and tea candles for endless mixing and matching. Best of all, you can reuse the same LEDs for other holidays like Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Halloween). For an elegant display, incorporate lights at varying heights and colors — experiment with arranging them on mantels and dining tables or as part of an island centerpiece. Wrap the lights with pastel ribbons or place them in holders adorned with Easter motifs such as bunnies, eggs and flowers to amplify the Easter spirit.

7. Easter-Themed Pillow Covers

For an effortless and cost-effective decoration, swap out your regular pillow covers for ones with Easter designs. This simple change can instantly add charm and holiday spirit to your living space, whether you prefer subtle spring florals or playful prints with Easter motifs. Once the holiday is over, just remove the covers, wash them and store them away for next year.

8. Outdoor Easter Flags and Signs

Outdoor flags and signs are a vibrant and welcoming way to celebrate Easter and add curb appeal to your home. Choose flags and signs with Easter motifs that are also made from weather-resistant materials that can hold up to any surprise spring showers. If you don’t have a front lawn, you can still place these in your garden, at your doorstep or along your driveway.

9. Decorative Easter Door Mats

Decorative door mats are a functional and festive way to jazz up your home’s entrance. Made from long-lasting materials like coir, door mats will last for years and can withstand heavy foot traffic, so don’t be afraid to leave these out all spring. You can opt for Easter-specific designs or a more general “spring” look like florals, butterflies and seasonal greetings.

10. Outdoor Easter Egg Hunt Setup

An outdoor Easter egg hunt setup is a timeless tradition, especially if you have kids. (Adults can still enjoy an egg hunt, especially with some more grown-up tweaks like filling the eggs with cash or hiding gift cards!) For a family-friendly version, fill your reusable Easter eggs with treats or small toys. Hide them throughout your garden or yard. If you don’t have outdoor space, create an indoor hunt instead. You can create maps or clues that lead hunters from one egg to the next (making the hunt more of an adventure) and simply change the locations and clues each year to keep the tradition fresh and exciting.

Once Easter is over, carefully wrap your decorations in bubble wrap or paper and gently place them in clear, airtight, stackable plastic containers. You can store these in your garage, attic or basement, but to avoid having them take up space in your home, consider placing them in a self-storage unit until next Easter.
