Easter is one of my favourite holidays and I love decorating for it! After a long winter putting up the Easter decorations feels so fresh and inspiring. As I started thinking about what new items I’ll add to my collection this year, I thought it would be fun to share a few ideas on ways frames and those popular little plastic eggs can be turned into decorations.
It’s all about the countdown. Really whatever you’re anticipating is so much more exciting if it can tangibly be counted down. And a frame with pretty ribbon or twine attached across the middle makes an easy and festive way to create a countdown. Just glue or make a tiny hole on top of each plastic egg so that you can hook or tie an egg to your twine each day. If you rather you can fill all of your eggs with a little candy or activity, hang them in advance from your twine and then open an egg up each day until Easter!
Shadow boxes are so versatile and can easily add that perfect touch of ‘festive’ from holiday to holiday. With washable markers or paint create a seasonal message or scene on the glass and then fill it with holiday items. In this case eggs! This idea can double as a countdown as well. Try adding an egg to the shadowbox everyday until Easter is here!
Using ribbons, tie a handful of colourful plastic eggs to the top of a frame for an instant Easter decoration. Yup it doesn’t get easier than this!
The kids might like getting involved in placing an arrangement of plastic eggs on cardstock. Glue them down and place in a frame when a dark corner needs a little spring pick-me-up.
Rustic is all the rage and I love how simple and on point this idea is. String a “Happy Easter” message or any words that make you think about the season from a weathered frame using your eggs.
