Being a true girlie girl, I LOVE the traditional color scheme for Easter decor. The baby blues, the chickadee yellows, and of course, the flirty PINKS! As I have mentioned in past posts, being on a strict budget the past few years has prevented me from decorating for holidays other than Christmas. What changed things? The magical world of Pinterest! I found so many cute ideas for Easter decorations and activities, but if I listed ALL of the ones I liked, this post would be about four pages long. No bueno. To keep things simple I created a list of the top 5 frugal and easy Easter decor ideas.
The criteria for my top 5? They not only had to be adorable and/or tres chic, but also innovative. We’ve all seen tulips in a vase of pastel candies (yawnnnn), I wanted ideas that were innovative and modern, but with a shabby chic (or just plain chic) vibe. Finally, they had to be simple to make and consist of inexpensive, easy to find items. A decor idea is not frugal if one of the $.50 items to create it takes two months and a trip to eight different thrift stores to find!
Top 5 Easter Decor Ideas!
How gorgeous are these gold glitter eggs? Glitter makes everything better. Everything. Take a scary, slimy snake and sprinkle him with glitter – et voila, not so scary! I’m not saying you should try this in real life anytime soon, but trust me. Glitter = better. I also love the metallic gilded eggs Martha Stewart makes in this easy to follow video.
To make this gorgeous springtime centerpiece even cheaper, I would skip the Brussels sprouts & floral foam cage (just poke a stick through the foam that can sit on the vase opening). And Walmart has some pretty & affordable fake flowers!
This centerpiece is super easy to make. You can “speckle” some real or fake Easter eggs, buy one bunch of baby’s breath and grab a loose-woven basket or wire bucket you already have at home. Sooo cheap and easy, just like some of my friends. Totally kidding! I only have one friend like that. She lives in Canada. You don’t know her.
Love this idea! Just stick Cheetos in clear party bags and tie them with green ribbon or rafia. It doesn’t get easier. Bonus- you get to eat the Cheetos after Easter. Yeeeaaahhhsss.
I HAD to add this cocktail, even though technically it is not considered by most
weirdos people to be decor. But it’s so pretty and colorful. For the fifteen ten three minutes it would last after being made, I would definitely consider it decor…of course, after two more of these beauties, I might consider the dishes in my sink as decor…
