Easter always signifies the beginning of spring and we don’t know about you, but it can’t come soon enough! What better reason to deck out your home with some beautiful decorations to really get into the Easter spirit? There is so much inspiration out there, so it’s really about picking a craft you love and running with it – extra points for trying something new!


Decorating Your Home

Make sure to wow any visitors as soon as they arrive at your home, by making a wreath to hang on your front door to welcome your guests? This gorgeous and rustic wreath from i Heart Naptime is sure to impress. Alternatively, for a modern twist, try this square wreath from A Diamond In The Stuff. These are just a couple of our favourites, but remember to get creative and add your own personal twist to all of your creations!


Now the front door is looking lovely, the inside of the house can’t disappoint! This Bunny Bunting from Clean & Scentsible would look lovely anywhere, or why not scatter these treat filled yarn eggs from The Whoot around for people to find? We also adore this table runner from Uncommon Designs.





Easter Treats

It wouldn’t be Easter without loads of treats to share with friends and family, and it’s a great way to experiment with your crafting skills. Impress your friends with this absolutely incredible Speckled Egg Cake from The Cake Blog. We’ve also spotted some gorgeous Easter themed cupcakes from Garnish & Glaze, Martha Stewart and Hungry Happenings to keep you busy!
