Are you having guests over for Easter dinner, but have yet to decorate? No worries, there's still time to get it done before Sunday without spending a fortune. Here are a couple great ideas that will take you less than an hour to complete for less money than you think.
Decorating Your Mantel
Gathering these five items to get you started: candles, glassware, fresh flowers, Easter grass, and plastic eggs. Candles are a standard in home decorating, and chances are, you have a stash of them in a cabinet or drawer. For glassware, you can simply use drinking glasses, or if you recycle, clean out a few bottles or jars. Fresh cut flowers are great because of the bright colors and wonderful scent. Take cuttings from your flower beds, or pick up a small bouquet at the market. Plastic eggs and Easter grass are very inexpensive. A couple dollars will get you what you need. The mantel pictured is from my living room. I had plastic eggs and paper shreds already, and I used the fresh flowers my daughter received for her birthday, so this project was FREE! You can accomplish this look for around $10.
We got crafty at our homeschool moms small group meeting this week and made these simple wreaths for about $3 each. My husband cut circles for us made from extra luan plywood we had left over from another project. You could also use heavy duty cardboard. Using hot glue guns, we first glued on Easter grass (I recommend the straw type if you have it available). Then, we glued on plastic eggs and some silk flowers. For very little money, we had a great time making wreaths to hang on our front doors.
Thanks for following Practips!
