The Easter holidays are not only about the mad dash for hidden chocolate treasures, they're also about decorating your home in the season's vibrant colours in preparation to host and spend quality time with family and friends.
“The holidays are a perfect time for families to get together and get creative,” says Shelli Gardner, CEO and cofounder of Stampin' Up, a crafting company. “Whether you're decorating your house prior to the festivities, creating a perfect table setting for your holiday meal or gathering all of your memories in a scrapbook, there are a lot of opportunities for you and your family to get inspired by this special time.”
Here are a few do-it-yourself design ideas Gardner suggests to bring the spirit of Easter to your décor this season:
Burlap and Blooms
Welcome visitors in style with a flowery wreath that will stay fresh all season long. The Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit by Stampin Up! features colorful paper flowers on an earthy burlap base that is easy and fun for the family to create.
Create and paint paper eggs and eggshells with your children and hang them on tree branches that you can showcase in your dinning or living room.
Handmade decorative cards
For treasured visitors and far away loved ones, handmade Easter cards are not only fun to make they also represent your personality and character. Folded colour cardstock, designer series paper or new water color custom Easter cards embellished with themed stamps will surely warm their hearts.
